    Even though i don't really care what polls say, 9th place isn't that bad.

    Haha, poor baseball. I happen to like it and also think it's 10 times better than the crappy NFL.

    Don't know why they have bullfighting, dogfighting or Pro wrestling in the survey. However the most intersting part of the survey is discussed at the end of the article:

    So NBA is 11th and MLB is 12th on the list. Note that the three non sports on the top of the keep the NBA and MLB out of the top ten.

    Don't understand why dog fighting is there. I mean, to me it's more of a betting thing, not to mention illegal here. Why didn't they add cockfighting while they're at it? And pro wrestling? I always thought it was a form of entertainment. Surprised to see hockey didn't make the list. I always though majority of the people didn't like it. Where's curling by the way?

    Be glad that MLS is recognized to the point that it is hated by a quarter of those surveyed.
  9. On the contrary; I think it's 10 times worse than the crappy NFL!

    Professional Wrestling was voted the 2nd most hated sport, behind only dogfighting, in a poll conducted by the Sports Marketing Group.
    In a similar poll currently being conducted on CNN, wrestling is faring better.

    I think this survey is a positive thing. If one considers the results valid, then the still often-expressed notion that "Americans hate soccer" would seem to have no more vailidity than the notion that Americans hate golf or boxing or NASCAR, things you never really hear.

    Dogfighting fans discuss that issue here:

    I'll see if they find their "Dogfighting bashers" threads, which are pretty funny. As are threads like "ESPN Sucks, we should try to get our matches on Animal Planet."

    What's worse, finishing high in a "most hated" poll, or finishing low in a "most liked" poll?

    I remember there was a survey done about 15 years ago that named the 141 most-liked sports. American Gladiators beat field hockey and truck pulling.

    Women's figure skating was FOURTH.

    (of course, this being 15 years ago, MLS wasn't in the picture, and Brandi Chastain was just a failed striker)
