The biggest reason Hockey's fanbase is kind of locked in terms of growth, is that it's still considered a "white man's game". Get a couple non-Canadian, black players (who are good/great) on the Rangers and I guarantee you that things will slowly start to change.
LOL, seriously, the Jets are behind the Knicks, METS, and Giants? No doubt the Yankees are #1, but the Jets past couple of seasons, along with the collapses by the Giants and Mets, and how mediocre and terrible the Knicks have been, you can't tell me the Jets are in that order.
They are the 2nd most popular team in NY right now.
Also, don't give me the Giants have won a Super Bowl a couple years ago, people don't remember that as much as the failures the past couple of teams have had.
