I'm talking the games, offseason, fan interaction, etc. regardless of who your team is or if they are good or not.

For me it's the NBA and it isn't even close. I don't even have an NBA team, but the league is by far the most fun to follow and has the most humanized/ accessible stars. There is constant drama mid-season and in the offseason. There are fewer players and they're more highly exposed. The league markets it's stars and players have a lot of power.

The regular season is a bit long, but there is always great matchups on TV. The NBA playoffs are the best postseason imo.

My rankings go like this:

1. NBA - top shelf. I don't have a team.
2. College Football - Best in season wire to wire. Go Cats!
3. NFL - Easy lazy TV watching on Sundays, playoffs are aight. I don't have a team.
4. College Basketball - My interest in regular season is pretty much centered on Cats. If they're not good i'm tuned out. Like the tourny
5. MLB - Totally Royals dependent. If they suck, little interest -- even the WS (though Ill watch).
6. College Baseball - CWS is meh on TV, never been. I couldn't name you a single college baseball player. Don't even really care about the Cats. Couldn't name one Cat baseball player.
7. NHL - Actually great product, just not interested.
8. MLS - Similar to NHL (at least KC makes it seem that way).

Note: Don't care about Euro soccer, and World Cup is like Olympics not a regular sports league. Also, not including individual sports.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Yeah, I'm not well versed. KC seems to be doing it right and the teams in Seattle/ Portland, but league is basically the minors and has beens leage imo. Soccer is totes boring as well.

I voted NFL, bud. Saw 3 NBA games this year and it was fun, but the NFL has to be the correct answer.

I think it’s hard to take the MLS serious because I made more $ at the university of Phoenix vs their subs in a year.

1. NBA
-
2-4: NFL, CFB, CBB  - depending on 'cats relevancy.  Elite levels could even bump a college sport over NBA.

-
-
-
-
-
-
-
-
5-8: All those other things.

My sports interest pretty much lines up w/what I take in from gE, PTI and Jalen & Jacoby.

cfb (regular season), cbb (post season), nba (post season) all equal
if the nba held their games outdoors and people wore hoodies to them and the games were in the fall for 10 weeks then it could take the troph but since not, it can't.

NASCAR isn't the best overall...but it provides a great on site fan experience.
Sometimes I think of the Book of Job and how God likes to really eff with people.
