High School sports popularity - Boys vs Girls

The following statistics are based on Yappi public interaction.

Obviously Football dominates in the Buckeye State. Whether referring to player participation, attendance, or media coverage. But what about the subject of girls sports not getting equal billing as boys?

Comparing each sport by #posts:
Boys * Girls * % variance Girls
Base/Softball 77,433 * 13, 740 * -563%
Basketball 140,214 * 25,372 * -552%
Soccer 30,757 * 36,454 * +18.5% (Girls Rule)
Track 31,364 * 1,503 * -2,086%
Volleyball 14,461 * 7,116 * -203%

Surprisingly boys edged out girls in Volleyball. Everything else is fairly predictable. Note, this is just one way to look at it. Obviously there are much more complex formulas that would validate a more factual survey. For example, player participation and school programs: Volleyball would absolutely be dominated by the girls. Most all schools big and small offer girls volleyball, few offer boys outside of the big programs.

Bottom line is Football dominates all in Ohio and on Yappi!

Just FYI, for the Track and Cross Country forum the users have for a number of years now used the boys forum to discuss both boys and girls.

I have to admit it, volleyball is a great spectator sport. It has a lot going for it, namely fast paced action and instant transitions from offense to defense. Add in no game clock and unlike the other sport with no game clock, diamond sports, the action is fast paced so you have a recipe for some really dramatic finishes to matches.

Track & XC has a unique format where the Boys and Girls are often competing at same event/venue with alternating events.

Only other sport I can imagine that would have a shared "meet" format is swimming?
