Rank the "Big Four" sports leagues

Forums - Sports Discussion - Rank the "Big Four" sports leagues

So, the US/Canada is considered to have four major sports leagues - the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL. While the MLS is growing, it still isn't considered to have reached that stage yet. So, I've decided to rank them, however while #1 and #4 were easy choices, #2 and #3 were very hard as they tend to flip:

1. NHL - No shocks here, ice hockey is my favourite team sport to watch and I like playing the video games too

2. NFL - I really like watching the sport itself, but the video games I'm not really a fan of

3. MLB - I have gone to more MLB games than the other 3 combined (in fact I've only been to 1 NHL game and 0 NFL and NBA games), and I like the video games too

4. NBA - Not that I dislike it or anything, but I just feel that it isn't as interesting as the others, maybe because it's too high scoring which kind of eliminates the drama of whether or not there will be a goal/run/touchdown that the other sports have. I'm also not as big of a fan of the games.



Around the Network

1. NFL Follow it more closely then the other three.
2. NBA Actually has my favorite athletes.
3. NHL Don't follow it as much as I used to.
4. MLB Super boring I actually like college football and basketball more.



NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB. I can only watch NHL and NFL, tough. I got bored with baseball and basketball in the 90's. Never could get into soccer, but that's not really considered a major sport, in the USA.

Around the Network

1. NHL - I actually like the sport. So an easy #1
2. NBA - I'm not really into basketball but if there was nothing else on TV I could watch a game, so it gets #2
3. NFL - So many things I don't like about it. The constant stoppages in play, the cheerleaders, the actual sport itself. It could be worse though.
4. MLB - A boring sport made even worse by the fact that they play like 200 games a season which is absolutely ridiculous.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Just NBA for me. NBA used to be low scoring in the 90s but then they got rid of the hand check and the 3 second rules which made it easier to score now



NBA > NFL > NHL > MLB

This would be my ranking as well, though I really don't care about the NHL either, but it at least is infinitely more fun to watch than baseball



Never been to a game of any of them, and I don't play the video games.

1. NFL- I closely follow, especially my 2 favorite teams.
2. MLB- I casually follow.
3. NBA- Sometimes the games are on when I am at the gym, and I do my best to care.
4. NHL- I get no coverage of and I have never really followed them. Couldn't tell you the teams aside from maybe Maple leafs.
