1. Womens sports? Womens sports had nothing to decline from. Anyway, if anything, they are rising.
2. Doubles Tennis? Or just tennis in general. Other that the top 2 guys in majors, who cares?
3. Ice hockey? Hockey is gaining in popularity
4. Cricket? Name 2 people who care about cricket. And in England it's the same as always
5. College Baseball? Never very popular, but it's steady and not declining
6. random olympic sports? Every Olympics people watch them, they aren't declining
7. Boxing? I agree.
8. MLS? Au contraire. Soccer is on the upswing in this country
9. Golf? As Tiger goes golf goes, if he's in contention people will care. Otherwise, they won't.
10. See #2

1. I dont mean to be sexist,
women are not good at sports..
2. While doubles and davis cup suck..
djoker and nadal have taken tennis to another level over the past 12 months..
while tennis is not big in your country, its huge elsewhere..
3. When i first came to the states, the hockey coverage was huge..
they had games on all the time, back in 98, on espn..
then the lockout came and hockey never recovered..
at the moment 2 soccer games are being shown on espn a day..
hockey can only dream of such coverage..

Yes, Womens sports suck. But, the title says sports that are on the decline. Womens sports were never popular, and are more popular now than they ever have been. How are they on the decline?
Tennis, nobody pays attention to it. It is not huge anymore, and it's not gonna grow. Tennis sucks and is on the decline.
Back in 98, sure, it was huge. But, right now it is improving from the lockout, not declining. It is growing inside the country, and while not as huge as it once was, it is not on the decline. They have a huge deal with NBC and will be getting more coverage.

You are stretching for straws with hockey..
espn is where its at, not nbc..
they used to have 2 or 3 games a week on espn..
even i would watch a couple, cause it looked like a big deal..
whether you like it or not,
soccer killed hockey..
we are the new golden boy..
you are the fat chick at the bar, with bee stings on her crotch..
every empire has its time, and then one day falls into abomination..
hockey is a horror!

Decline: a failing or gradual loss, as in strength, character, power, or value; deterioration.
Hockey is not on the decline. I am not a huge fan of hockey, but it doesn't take a fan to realize hockey is not declining. Hockey is getting stronger, recovering from that lockout. It was 14 years ago they had 2-3 games a week on espn, now they have that many games but on NBC. They are improving and the number of hockey fans keeps going up.
Hockey is still more popular in the US than soccer, and every other sport not called basketball, football, or baseball. It is only growing and certainly not on the decline.
