Our Best Sports City rankings, which look at the 12 months from roughly October 2007 to October 2008, are based on point values assigned to various categories, including but not limited to won-lost records, postseason appearances, applicable power ratings, number of teams and attendance.

Une chance que ce power ranking est basé sur la fiche des équipes de la ville. Ils ont placé Montréal devant San Francisco! C'est sur, nous n'Avons qu'une seule équipe des ligues majeurs, au moins il en ont trois(Les 49ers, les Giants et la Warriors)

City population, 29xxx

 

Lawrence Kansas: Home of the Kansas Jayhawks of the University of Kansas, they play at the University of Kansas Memorial Stadium

Montreal Is Where It Should Be Considering It's An Event Laden City; However, Surprised At Toronto's Standing...thought It Would Be Much Higher In The Standings. All In All, When It Comes To Sports, The Americans Are Numero Uno.

Toronto is not enough of a football hub despite hosting a few Bills games and having the Argos. Americans believe that Football is 5x more important than any other sport.

 

In order of popularity to Americans:

1. NFL Football

2. NASCAR

3. NBA Basketball

4. College Football

5. MLB Baseball

6. College Basketball

7. PGA Golf

8. Indy Racing League

9. NHL Hockey

10. MLS Soccer

I don't entirely agree with your ranking...here's how I would place them.

 

1. NFL Football

2. NASCAR

3. MLB Baseball

4. College Football

5. NBA Basketball

6. College Basketball

7. PGA Golf

8. IRL

9. Figure Skating

.

17. Professional Bull Riding

.

20. Professional Bowling

21. Poker

.

24. NHL Hockey

28. MLS Soccer

 

You might thikn that I'm joking with the Bowling and the bull Riding, but I'm very serious. Both thoses "sports" are more popular than Hockey. So is poker!
