    pats did a 60 share sunday, sox did a 50 share friday and saturday, this is for all you people who still believe the media that this is a baseball town, facts are the facts, and the number of games argument is out the window with the playoffs

    Let's look at ticket sales, too, then. Facts are facts, after all.

    Don't forget that baseball uses multiple games to accomplish the same thing 1 football game accomplishes.

    No idea but I suspect it's up there. I wouldn't even know where to find out. The sheer volume of fans that go to Sox away games might lend some credence to it, though.

    While the Pats are my #1, I'm a fan of both and don't really care.

    Unfortunately, Ticket Sales are not a good barometer when comparing both sports.

    How can you compare sales for 81 games as opposed to 8.

    The ratings you can look at 2 ways. There are more Cowboys fans locally than Cleveland fans.

    However, the Red Sox are in the playoffs......very important game.

    The Patriots are playing the 6th game of the season against a non-conference opponent. Not that important.

    Pick your poison.

    Head to head in the same time slot would have been the best test. The Pats would've won that also I surmise.

    Pats beat Sox again? If they played them at baseball, then that's darn impressive. If it's at Football, then I suspect that a couple of baseball players won't be walking again... :D

    BTW, Forbes says Sox worth $752 million, Pats worth $1.1 billion.

    I suspect Belichick's strategy would be to take out Ortiz and Varitek first utilizing a blitz of the d-line.

    After the big gun's are gone, it would be all about individual battles.

    Welker vs. Pedroia

    Brady vs. Beckett

    Randy vs. Manny

    Rodney vs. Schilling

    Maroney vs. JD Drew

    Stallworth vs. Cocoa Crisp

    Morris vs. Mike Lowell.

    In the end, the field would run Red with battered Sox.

    God I'm bored!

    After that marathon game Saturday night (outcome didn't help), I had trouble watching last night's Sox game (outcome didn't help). People are complaining about Goodell, but at least he's doing something (yeah, some of it very questionable). Selig doesn't try to do anything about the marathon games. Of course, he's an overall wimp to be sure. Football is sooooo much better a sport to watch nowadays, and I'm pretty balanced in my liking of the two sports.

    Red Sox 2006 Attendance: 2,930,768

    If the Patriots played all 16 games at home, and every one sold out, that would be about 70,000 * 16 = 1,120,000, less than half of that.

    But I guess number of games doesn't matter...

    [P.S. the point is that # of games DOES matter, and straight-up ratings comparisons are BS, even if they are head-to-head.]

    You were right on until the head-to-head thing. THAT is the only real barometer, and four weeks ago the Pats-Bolts OWNED the Sox-Yanks.

    No, it's not, because every NFL game is more important than an MLB game. (E.g., the Sox had a game the day before and after that one.) The only "fair" comparison might be a Game 7 in LCS/World Series vs. NFL playoff game - that is, two equally decisive games going head-to-head. But that can't happen, due to the season schedules...

    [Edit] Want to remind everyone that I am not a big Sox fan...the Sox are what one watches between Patriots games, imo

    we are talking tv ratings, what people are watching, if you dont get it thats not my fault the price of baseball tickets adds to the volume , your comparing apples and oranges, we are talking about how many people are watching, the pats win , this is the sox playoff, the pats are in the regular seson and their game is not in prime time, they still win, i hope this clears this up because by your posts your are obviuosly confused
