Fan satisfaction rankings
In a surprising turnaround, the Tigers ranked second among Major League teams (behind the Angels) and 12th among all pro sports teams in a fan poll conducted by ESPN.com. The survey involved more categories than I care to explain, so I’ll just let you look at it for yourself. The Pistons are fifth, the Red Wings aren’t far back from the Tigers, and the Lions are dead last.
Interestingly, the Tigers placed in the top 10 for baseball teams in stadium experience with the same ballpark that used to draw low ratings. Winning makes any ballpark look good, and losing can make a lot of ballparks look bad.
