    The Patriots games are also big rating winners when on MNF or SNF, I read recently.

    And while a certain local sports talk radio station continues to try to push the "other sport" whenever they can (even on their so called "Patriots Monday & Friday") their ratings continue to tumble.

    Both stations talk close to the same amount of football and baseball. Where they used to diverge was basketball v. hockey.

    Correct. And the other station from 2-6 treats the Pats like crap. Thanks anyway. If I have to listen to Vulgar and Spazz trash the Pats for 4 hours, I'll pass thanks. Ordway is an insufferable Dbag and Holley went from being great to a borderline apologist for Ordway. It's a great choice from 2-6 in the greatest sports town in America

    And to think Vulgar and Spazz is also broadcasted on CSN NE as well. What a good waste of HD bandwidth. Thank the heavens for Patriots.com Radio.

    This is nice to hear. As a New Yorker I am curious to know if the Pats narrowed the gap on the Red Sox in popularity.

    Despite the Pats run the past decade I have heard that it's still a Red Sox town with a Pats a distant 2nd.

    Its a small vocal minority that loudly keeps the red sox in the conversation.

    In truth I feel this is Patriot territory.

    It's still a Red Sox town. It's also a Patriots town. Really, it's a pro sports town, with 2 top tier teams and two second-level teams.

    Mostly a RS media town with casual fans who view going to a game like a day at the beach.

    The NFL is by far more popular than MLB, and NE is no exception. It might be a tie with the pick hats inside 128.

    Yeah, it's still so Boston au currant to be a RS fan. Perplexingly, Beesball has the cache of being "intellectual" which appeals to the urban hipster crowd, while football with its deeper strategic component, and far more complex play analysis is viewed as Neanderthal by the style setters.

    I'm still amazed that in this fast paced age of text & twit that something as glacially slow as MLB has any broad appeal.

    The aged Boston media dinosaurs are fighting a losing battle with their MLB fixation, at least until Das Kommissar Goodell finishes completely gelding NFL football.

    Who's the other top tier team? cause both the sox and the c's suck at the moment (and i dont see that changing for the sox with their weak offseason).

    The Red Sox and Patriots dominate the town, but the Celtics and Bruins have avid followings as well. I do find it amusing that people here feel the need to bash baseball and the Red Sox, while crying about the supposed short shrift given to football and all the "negative" Patriots people.

    There's never a shortage of irony in this place.

    The silliness of this forum, obviously, is the main reason you've kept your posting frequency so low. :D

    I've got no problem dealing with silliness and irony. Hell, I respond to your posts, don't I? ;)

    Other than a handful of seasons, the Red Sox have been competitive since 1967. There have been ebbs and flows with the other teams. When Orr played, this was a hockey town. When Bird, McHale and Parrish played, basketball was #1. Oddly enough, in the 60s, the Bruins (perennial cellar dwellers) sold more tickets than the greatest sports dynasty of all time - Russell's Celtics.

    The Patriots were last to the dance and their chaotic roots led to people not really taking them seriously on a consistent basis until Belichick and Brady.
