Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

A ranking based on....? Is there an article?

I mean, the first thing that pops to mind when I see the Phoenix Coyotes as the top-ranked NHL team, is that the list is bulls***. But I'm clearly missing the basis of how they're ranking teams, because even ESPN isn't that dumb.

#30 - Detroit Red Wings (8th in NHL)

#52 - Detroit Tigers (12th in MLB)

#56 - Detroit Lions (14th in NFL)

#80 - Detroit Pistons (18th in NBA)

They would get high marks under "Stadium Experience"; every home game might be the last one they play.

#52 - Detroit Tigers (12th in MLB)

#56 - Detroit Lions (14th in NFL)

#80 - Detroit Pistons (18th in NBA)

All professional sporting teams (NHL, NBA, MLB and NFL) in all cities made it. It's not the top 100, it list them all.

I think the list is pretty irrelevent and it really doesn't relate at all to how good any of the teams are. There seems to be a pretty high rating on how expensive tickets are (which is why you see Phoenix high on the list and Toronto low on the list). I've seen these lists before and I just find them very weird. Essentially, they are trying to show where the best bang for you buck can be found. Generally speaking, teams in major cities will be handicapped because their tickets will be more expensive (generally), but you would also need to consider that the disposable income of people in those cities would be higher (generally).....so it's tough to compare.

Phoenix is so high because the locals get to watch the Wings play twice a year for dirt cheap.

I guess I didn't pay attention to most other entries on that "list" and didn't realize there were 122 professional teams (excluding minor pros) in the US. I remember reading that Detroit had the best "Owner/Players/Fans" relationship in the NHL. I, as a completely biased Red Wings fan, am more proud of this fact that the other categories. But again, a big ol' grain of salt :)
