    People only watch Hockey for the fights. May as well watch Boxing instead.

    but if you want to get technical, the amount of revenue the UFC makes and the amount of viewers every year comes nowhere close to what the NHL brings in. if anything the ufc audience is declining if you look at the numbers and compare them to what they used to be. im sure if people only wanted to see the fights....well yeah they would tune into UFC, or watch boxing just for the pac man and mayweather fights or whatever right?

    yeah theyve lost 230 million or whatever by not having the game for 3 months. probably alot more than that but whatever. thats alot more than the ufc would lose if they didnt have cards for 4 months now isnt it? you cant say nobody watches it just because you dont. over here in canada its like a religion.

    If you wanted to get technical, you would've compared the money generated from Hockey to Boxing.

    well boxing brings in ridiculous money for some god forsaken reason. the mexicans and people international love that ****. ufc fighters are completely underpaid compared to them anyways

    No, hockey is a team sport, like the UFC. Boxers are individuals. Hockey and the UFC have a pretty regular shcedule that they both keep Hockey had a lockout and the UFC had to cancel an event.

    well if the fighters had a union with the ufc, there would be a lockout every year because they are so underpaid and if they had a union there is no way that would ever slide.

    hey if you dont like the sport get out of my thread with your debbie downer ****. go be negative somewhere else

    yeah well if they had unions none of these bottom end fighters would be competing just to pay off their rent and pay their training camps. but then there would be labor disputes if things get ugly. happens in every sport. its all about the almighty dollar no matter how much ridiculous amounts of money you haul in

    No. I said that people may as well watch Boxing, because the fights are the only interesting thing about Hockey. Therefore, if he wanted to make a point about Hockey being great because it makes so much money, he should've compared it to Boxing.

    Also, not only is UFC not a sport(it's an MMA promotion), MMA also can't be classed a team sport.

    uhh people watch hockey just because of the fights??? thats the dumbest thing ive ever heard. seriously stop being such a hater. people from all across the world followed the world juniors this year, and guess what? fighting isnt even allowed in it. and most of those guys arent even in the big leagues yet.

    saying people only watch a sport just to see fights just because you dont like like the sport or cant understand it is such an ignoramus thing to say. ......Uhhhh i dont like UFC, so everybody only watches MMA just to see the octagon girls. See how stupid that sounds? im sure there would be alot of people who would disagree with that statement. Besides, we all know i prefer bellator!

    maybe because hockey doesnt entertain you and you only watch it for the fights, yeah. to you. there are 7 trillion other people in this world, most of which who have a television or access to a nearby rink. they also have their own opinion. you are one person. a mere ant. you cant speak for everybody. just your own opinion

    its okay though. i dont like curling. i only watch it to listen to a bunch of women screaming "harder harder deeper deeper!" but secretly hoping for a fight to break out so they can throw rocks at each other or beat each other around with brooms. just because thats the only way i can appreciate that sport doesnt mean that everybody else only watches it for that.

    sure fighting is part of the game but thats not why people watch it.

    When youre losing 7-0 in a meaningless game, i would figure most people wouldnt care to see a fight after every whistle anyways. sure the meatheads might cheer but thats not what hockey is about and thats not why we watch it.

    hockey is about as popular in america the way american "football" is popular throughout the rest of the world. the one time where the rest of the world tunes in to watch one of their games is just so they can have an excuse to have a barbeque in the middle of winter, get drunk, and watch 5 hours of funny commercials with 12-32 seconds of action mixed in between them

    actually i wouldnt say that, but the market for hockey is rather lackluster in the states other than the northeast and midwest. football is their religion. our religion is hockey. even baseball and basketball teams never cut it up here. we have like what? one basketball and one baseball team?

    well we did have the vancouver grizzlies, but after 6 seasons of terrible 4-78 records or whatever...u couldnt even pay the people to go to their games. i actually was in GM Place back in the day where i was lucky enough to get to see them win one of the 6 or 7 games they won all year lol. and i got autographs from shareef abdul rahim whatever his name is and some other basketball player on the team with the nickname big country. man that was so long ago, i wasnt even a basketball fan but the tickets were free.
