Big East Football. It's a dead conference walking right now. Just a matter of time before they split. They are already losing the AQ.

This poll was on the Dan Patrick Show this morning. Boxing ran away with it by a landslide.

Boxing isn't going to just die out, it will still be around.
Eventually another American male will be contender in tennis again.
NFL officials will be back eventually.
The Big East is going to die, soon. They won't exist. So they have to be in the worst shape. None of the other options will be disappearing anytime soon. They are not fatally wounded the way the Big East is.

NFL officials will be back this season, at worst they will be back next season.

The next Sampras or Agassi will pop up eventually. It's not like Americans will stop playing tennis.

Just look at Pacman and PBF payouts and popularity and tell me boxing won't be alive in 10 years. Boxing may be hurting but they are far from dead.

Big East? The question is where will there teams end up? With no AQ the top teams will bail ASAP.

I admit boxing has its problems but it's still very popular all across the world, stadiums are being sold out, ratings are high and PPV/gate revenue still generates millions of dollars.

Boxing is in poor shape period, Big East is part of College Football which is like an umbrella of security weather that Conference continues or not, but it is likely to just continue and absorb other schools. Conferences of the size of WAC are the conferences that will cease to exist, as they have already announced they will likely cease being a football conference.

If conference re-alignments taught us anything, it's that football is the only factor. Even being a basketball super conference won't save them. They will lose the AQ, the conference will die. It's just a matter of when. There is no saving that conference. Now the top teams will be better off when they make it to better conferences. The other teams will be fine. But the conference will be dead. All but official at this point.

IMO Big East doesn't belong here. They are fatally wounded with no hope of living. You can't say that about the other options.

Yes they did, but what does that really prove in regards to the proposed question.

If boxing was in such bad shape those two shouldn't be able to earn more than NBA stars and Tiger Woods. Nor should boxing be acquiring new tv and venue deals.

It's a reactionary poll and result. People care so much about the NFL that they are going bonkers over these replacement officials. But that will end eventually, it's only a temporary problem.

Men's Tennis is there because Roddick retired. But tennis won't die in the US, so eventually it's safe to assume someone will emerge. Now this could take some time, could be awhile.

The current state of boxing is a debate that has been going on for a long time. It's the most talked about topic listed here. So I can see why it got the most reaction.

the sort of money people like pac and mayweather take home, not to mention the money that goes into the pockets of people like arum, de la hoya or schaeffer is a huge part of the problem. if a higher percentage of the profits was invested into grass roots, boxing would be in better shape across the board.

floyd mayweather has probably pissed away enough money by burning it, making it rain in strip clubs and paying people to hang around and laugh at his jokes to create significant reform in grass roots boxing.

i pity anyone who genuinely thinks that is cool or positive in any way, shape or form. it's fucking sad is what it is.

I went with Big East. It will be gone in a few years. The rest will all be around. US Men's Tennis is a close 2nd though. I just seems like athletes don't play tennis growing up. In my HS they all played football, basketball, baseball, and got in trouble and kicked off teams.
