    I would also argue that the Sox got a 19 because the Pats game was a blowout and the Sox were in a tight contest.

    Had the Pats game been closer, the ratings would've been even higher.

    ya, its straight up against the yanks in a pennant race, we are in our 2nd game, ive had this argument before, the facts are the facts, and it doesnt matter how many games each teams play, the pats always beat them in the ratings

    In further news, ratings for the recent episode of "Desperate Housewives" topped the evening's Sox broadcast 3 to 1, even though some viewers switching channels were perplexed and couldn't tell the difference. Viewers cited Curt Schilling's role as the chatty blond troublemaker and Manny Ramirez as the clueless village slut for their confusion.

    This is not a fair comparison.
    The Patriots are in the midst of a dynasty, and the Red Sox play 160 games a year.

    I didn't watch the Red Sox because I was at the Patriots game. I didn't goto the red sox game because I've already been to fenway 20 times this season.

    If the Pats played the chargers 3 times, and the red sox played the yankees once it still would not be anywhere close to a fair comparison.

    You can't even compare a playoff game of the Pats to the Red Sox UNLESS its a game 7 for the red sox and the Patriots were scheduled at the same time(which would be a disaster.) This is the ONLY case where I can see a fair comparison of ratings. It would help if it was a game 7 vs the yankees as well.

    well, you have to consider the fact that the AL East is practically over, or at least the sox have a playoff spot locked up. Plus, we've been watching the red sox for all of spring and all of summer, so we've seen them plenty of times. Pats, we have only seen of late. Plus, intrigue into the whole spygate. also, another big factor is the fact that the pats are on NBC and the sox were on ESPN. i still say this is a red sox dominated town. the pats are an extremely close second. but the red sox are something that are talked about and obsessed about year round. the pats are relevant in the end of summer, fall, and into winter. after that, other than the first few days of free agency and the draft, the pats arent too relevant.

    I hope this isn't some statement about how the world loves a controversy, because I have a feeling it could be spun that way.

    I understand your arguments here but you have to factor in the amount of games each team plays. Also, it was a Sox-Yanks game, but the game didn't mean much in regards to the playoffs. That being said, it's a hell of a lot more fun for me following a team that doesn't have dating shows at its home stadium.

    excuses, excuses, excuses, the facts are the facts go read them and weep, do you watch the pats or sox, the results are in pats win , you can make your excuses all day but the facts speak for themseves, and i ask you the question in head to head battles when was the last time the sox beat the pats??? if this is the baseball town the media leads you to believe they should beat the pats, especially against the dreaded yanks in a heated pennant race in sepember, shiiling vs. clemens and doesnt get better than that sox fans does it???

    Please.

    That was Sox/Yanks, Curt Shilling against Roger bleepin' Clemens in mid- September versus the 2nd game of the season for the Pats.

    IMHO, that was pretty impressive.

    excuses? since when did this become a contest of red sox vs patriots? why would I weep? you seem a bit disillusioned. I'm a red sox and a patriots fan. I like the Patriots/NFL more. I just don't see why this is an emotional contest. I'm just saying your making an unfair comparison and I stand by it. You'll see Brady and LT once a year. You would have seen Clemens 4-5 times if he started the season.

    Its obvious this is a red sox vs yankees thing with you. If you want to go down that road...Why don't you provide me with some sources that the yankees get better ratings than the jets or giants. Even if you did pull this off. You would then have to prove to me why anyone would watch an NFL team in New York who will only pull a win out of their ass if they're forced to play each other.

    Otherwise learn to stick to the topic.

    Theres 162 games...You should get an award if you manage to watch every single game. The home opener of the patriots rolls around, after all the video tape controversy...in the playoff rematch...I'm surprised anyone watched the red sox let alone as many that did. I'd say they did damn well considering. You guys are making unrealistic comparisons. It was interesting to read the article to see how each franchise did rating wise. But what conclusion are you trying to draw from it? That the NFL is more popular than MLB? It is. That the Patriots are more popular in NE RIGHT NOW than the Red Sox? They probably are.

    Does that make me less of a Red Sox fan? Does that make Red Sox fans disloyal? What are you trying to prove.

    Your posts are like deciphering the Rosetta stone.

    Baseball to me is a lesser of a sport for a variety of reasons.
    The season is too long.
    The games are too long.
    The players are out of shape and a pathetic excuse for athletes(obviously not all of them but enough)
    There is no punishment for steroids as far as I'm concerned.
    There is no parity in baseball.

    You seem to think I'm arguing that baseball is a better sport than football. Or that New England cares more about the red sox than the patriots. I'm not.

    What I'm arguing is that the fact the Patriots had better ratings on Sunday night was not because no one cares about the Red Sox, or because New England hates baseball. I've watched over a 100 Red Sox games this season, and over a dozen Yankees/Red Sox games. I want to see the Patriots, they don't come around 6 nights a week for an exhausting 162 game season. I'll watch the red sox the other 5 nights of the week and get red sox score updates while I'm at or watching the Patriots game.

    This is my last response to you unless your posts start to develop some coherency or attempt to make a well supported argument.

    As a true fan of both the Sox and the Pats, I must say I was watching the Pats and then switched over to the Sox on the commerical breaks. It wasn't that I like the Pats more than the Sox, it was - like others above me have put - that the sox play a hundred-sixty games a year and the Pats play sixteen. I love the Pats, and I love the Sox. Either way, it doesn't even matter.

    Who's more popular? I think people as a whole think watching football is more exciting - though I might agree to an extent - to each his own really, and that's part of the reason why the Pats win in ratings.

    Plus, Baseball doesn't mean anything until October anyways. Unless you're fighting tooth and nail for a playoff spot which the Sox are -not-.

    This is a horrible comparison.

    Scarcity of football games means that if I miss one, I'd rather miss baseball. It's better to miss 1/162 of the season than 1/16. Oh, and I had just watched Sox-Yanks the previous two nights.

    But you already know this and posted this anyway.
