Best: Boston, Philly, Chicago, NYC, Detroit. These 5 are way ahead of the rest of the pack regarding fan support

Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo and STL also have very passionate fans.

Dallas, Nola, LA, and San Fran have surprisingly good fan support for Western/ Sunbelt cities

Worst: Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Phoenix, Jax (do they really count with one team)

The interesting fact of the above is this-I MOVED from LA to MA in 1995-I can tell you this-if I asked the average Pats fan to name me the starting backfield of the PATS in -oh-1974-it was Jim Plunkett at QB-and the backs were Mack Herron and Sam Cunningham of USC fame-I'd be greeted by blank stares-also -none would know Chuck Fairbanks was the coach-none-and I am friends with tons of PATS fans-would remember the Sugar Ray Hamilton penalty on Kenny Stabler-all of this is just ample proof that these people are bandwagon Johnny-Come-Latelies-but that's the way it is here. It's a region that takes itself too seriously-when I moved here-and said I was from LA-I'd ask them questions about their teams-like-name me the Celtic starting 5 in 1974-and no one could do it. My point is the fans that post on so many sites really don't know anything at all, other than cliches and rah-rah nonsense. There are some truly knowledgeable fans here-but honestly-I could count them on two hands...most are Boston number one baby. And college sports-especially football-are completely ignored in these parts, except for Doug Flutie-who New Englanders think is the greatest college football player in history.

hmm... As to the Oakland game; Biggest heist ever... and Oakland's other loss that season? Pats in Foxboro, and we didn't need to look up the score (48-17). I watched it and dad was at the game... The one thing i'll never forget was how excited he was about how he and his cronies spent most of the day heckling Madden.

Coming off a season that they didn't make the playoffs the Bruins average ticket is $222 (secondary Market)
The price of a Ducks and Kings Ticket combined (two 2014 playoff teams) $217
That's right, you can go to a Ducks and a Kings game for less than the price of a Bruins game, and both teams were better last year than the Bruins.
Anaheim can't even outdraw the Bruins with prices that are about than 40% that of Bruins tickets (90 v 222)
The Boston Garden sells out, its just a smaller arena than most, so attendance figures are in the middle of the pack because you can't legally put 20,000 people in a 17,500 seat arena.
The Red Sox are the most expensive ticket in the MLB

price=demand. The demand is there for Boston Sports Tickets, more so than almost every other city

In my opinion, % of arena filled is more telling than actual attendance numbers. Anybody filling their arena to 100% capacity every night has great fans. End of discussion.

LOL, no bias here. Clevelanders take their sports seriously and much of their inferiority complex stems from their tortured sports history. People in California can take or leave sports and there are only a few teams with a truly passionate fan base (namely the Warriors, Raiders & Lakers). Do you really think Chicago or Philadelphia could go 20 years without an NFL team without some sort of huge uprising?
