What i was getting at is these popularity polls they list on the internet all have different formula's to reach their conclusion. Not that they are wrong, but this list for instance would eliminate GP from contention on numerous fronts as they are either weak or non existent in about 8 of the the 13 categories.




If TV viewership of any sports is the criteria then Beijing Olympics 2008 was by far the most watched sporting event with over 1 Billion people tuning in at some point during the Olympics event. For us TV viewership isnít the only criteria for a sports popularity rather it should be the number of other factors combined to get the best popularity ranking.

Criteria used

Global base & audience
TV Viewership numbers
Number Professional leagues around the world
TV rights deals
Endorsement & Sponsorship deals
Average athlete salary in top league
Biggest competition & (number of countries represented)
Social media presence
Prominence in sports headlines on media outlets (websites, tv)
Relevancy through the year
Regional dominance
Gender equality
Accessible to general public worldwide

#1 and #2 Arguably, they have a huge global base and audience with Tv viewership
#3 no
#4 terrible if the 300 million figure is true
#5 terrible " " " " " " " " " " " " " "
#6 terrible
#7 terrible
#8 As good as could be expected i guess
#9 terrible
#10 As good as could be expected
#11 Not sure
#12 virtually none but not sports fault
#13 Good

So it is possible for a sport to have huge tv viewership and not be considered popular according to this criteria. As bad as GP does in the majority of these categories, its amazing they made the top 15

UK's Sky TV is pulling around a 2.0 ratings for F1 broadcasts, yet F1 wants us to believe they are pulling around 400 million viewers globally for the races.

LOL

As Arrab says, no we aren't. We just aren't fitting in with your assumption. A number of links have been posted showing that MotoGP is not the 3rd most viewed sport in the world, not by far.

Having lived outside the US, I can tell you that things like NFL and even NASCAR are far more popular than you believe. The 3 NFL games held at Wembley last year were full to capacity (90,000) compared with 115,000 average attendance of MotoGP Silverstone, so not far off.

He would have agreed to a crap bike as long as it was equally crappy as his teammate.

No wings for 17 and from most reports, the wings development is the biggest difference in the 2 bikes. Read somewhere that Ducati is testing the new 2017 without wings , and is having the same problems Honda and Suzuki are having this year, spinning and wheelies.
