Well, considering their NFL team is no longer there and the team sucked when they were there.

I always thought Cincinnati was big on baseball.

No, Denver is a Bronco town and that's it. No other sports matter. People go to Rockies because it's cheap and slightly entertaining. They couldn't care less about the team. And they all hate the owners (Monforts)

Fans/capita is skewed towards small markets.

I didn't write the article. Here's the link:

It's not based on city limits. It's based on CSA or MSA.

Still very flawed metric. The only valuable number is % of seats filled, not how many people per capita went to the games. If a 30,000 seat stadium in a city of 5 million is sold out they just can't fit any more people into the seats. Versus a 30,000 seat stadium in a city of 2 million. The city of 2 million will win all the time using the articles metric their ratio will always be higher

Regardless, when it comes to per capita attendance:

Milwaukee, WI is #1 in pro baseball
Green Bay, WI is #1 in pro football

When it comes to % of seats filled:

San Francisco, CA is #1 in pro baseball
Green Bay, WI is #1 in pro football
