Chicago didn't do much in the late 90s to 2009. So you come off as either a Ranger hater or just some ignorant teenager because when the Rangers have been a contender, they've pushed the needle locally and nationally..
Hawks didn't even show home games on TV until starting in 2008 (Unless you call that joke PPV experiment Wirtz tried that lasted very briefly TV coverage)

So using ratings to judge Hawks fans during that era is a bit absurd
