Those numbers are skewed.Not everybody watching U.S/Portugal was rooting for the U.S.In southeastern massachusetts there is a large portuguese population that was rooting for portugal.I'm sure the same happened in large metro areas.Until our athletes start playing soccer we will continue to lag behind other countries.You act as if every viewer rooting for the United States.We as a nation tune into big events

Most americans will go back to not caring about soccer for another four years.I see no ratings bump.We as a nation will only watch big events.They say the same thing about hockey after the olympics I love hockey but I realize it will always be a niche sport.

Being from the northeast I hope Comcast doesn't shove this down our throats.They will try to put it with other channels and increase the bill.I think I can survive without the sec network.I don't see a demand in a pro sports town like Boston.

New York and Los Angeles are not hockey towns.I predict the nba finals will garner better ratings in L.A..I've been to NYC on business and the only one who talks about it is Boomer his host mocks it.It also hurts with a three hour difference.

I was watching the CBSSN last night after the NCHC semifinal.During a break between the first and second games they switched to a march madness post game show.The host mentioned they would have more hockey coming up suddenly the panel of former players and coaches broke out laughing.Even ESPN wouldn't stoop that low.

If the NHL Network was smart they would scoop her up.NESN has become unwatchable during sox games.It has become a commercial for NESN constant plugs.Jenny Dell is gorgeous but awful.You can thank (Fratboy) Tom Werner for letting naoko go.She had the respect of the players,coaches and fans.Having met her myself during Bruin practices.

The NBA will always swamp the NHL.Didn't Bos/Van have better ratings than Celtics/Lakers from a few years ago.Having traditional hockey media mainstays eliminated doesn't help.The rating for the Devils/Rangers were a abysmal.They don't care about hockey in New York City.
