I thought this was a Stanley Cup taunt for a few seconds, then decided that North American hockey probably isn't big in Europe.

How long before the Vielpunkt login is taken?

It is in hockey countries.

That's worse than Cricket.

Yup. But hockey, cricket and rugby are somewhat similar-sized sports* with a similar problem - there are somwhere between six and ten stable quality countries, perhaps a couple of additional ones below that with a little bit of aspiration, and then a huge gap to the minnows that seems difficult to bridge.

*I realise one billion indians follow cricket, but letsignorethatforthesakeofargument.

I know Rugby only has a small number of quality nations, but from memory it does have somewhere in the vicinity of 200 odd member nations. Which is a massive leap from Cricket. No idea where hockey fits into that scheme though...

Nah, Rugby and Cricket are pretty much the same in terms of member countries and quality sides. ICC has 104 members, IRB has 103.

IHL has 66 member countries.

Interestingly FIH (the field hockey association) beats them all with 127 member nations.

And Volleyball has 220 members. Doesn't necessarily make it a big sport that people are passionate about and that can be considered a "national sport" anywhere.

Or could just be my dodgy memory at work again. :confused:
