Overwhelming 1st to 9th... I believe it proves my point. Chicago is 3rd largest city in US. 9th is lower than it's expected fan base if you only count the regional fans.Then why are they still the 9th most supported team in the NBA, despite having been (relatively) crap for 20 years?
Anyway, I'm aware that this is a derailing of the thread, so I'm going to stop talking about it. Peace.
I was just pointing out that there are different type of fans and loyalty. In all sports. Seems like you just don't want to acknowledge it.
