But hey, game's in great shape. #2 but try harder? And Don Fehr had nothing to do with it!
Yes, and the WS lasts 4-7 games, and the MLB plays 162 games a year. Ratings of a single event is a poor comparison tool for two sports when there is such a huge disparity in games played. It simply doesnt matter when the best teams are playing close to 200 games a year compared to 20 with the NFL.
