Think the NBA has ratings problems?

You think the NBA has ratings problems?

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman seems relatively unconcerned about this year's low television ratings, according to the NEW YORK TIMES.

Playoff games have been outdrawn by poker, women's college gymnastics and the Arena Football League.

Among nonsports cable shows, N.H.L. games are being crushed by "SpongeBob SquarePants."

I think this has a lot to do with the fact that hockey sucks.

Hockey doesn't suck. They just put it on obscure networks like OLN that a lot of people simply don't have.

Hockey this year's been pretty exciting from what I've seen. Not my sport, but it deserves better ratings. They just have, as the Times points out, pretty small markets for three out of the final four teams, and that's going to hurt a year after a strike.

plus something like half of the cable networks in Southern California dont carry OLN so even having one major market doesnt really help

To boost their ratings hockey should have all the players dress up like different characters of Sponge Bob. The games could be broadcasted on Nickelodeon and the ratings would go through the roof.
