But the media does. Its not about the fans. The media conveys everything.
What role do the Rangers play this year? Is it the same as always?
If theres a winner in New York it'll help the league, but how much really?
New uniforms aren't for the media. They are for the fans. Something new to buy. More merchandising money.
I happen to really think that we overrate/overestimate the importance of having a good team in NY. We care, but I'm really not sure how much the rest of the country does. '
Example: we were all excited to have a Subway Series in 2002. Very few people west of Pennsylvania and south of New Jersey really cared.
I think it's more important to have star players. What few casual fans will tune in to see the star player, not the Rangers because they are from NY. You put Crosby on the Rangers and I really don't know how much better the ratings would be (if at all).
