    I will rank what I think them to be and then go look them up.

    1. soccer (futball)
    2. tennis
    3. baseball
    4. cricket
    5. golf
    6. basketball
    7. football (grid iron)
    8. table tennis
    9. auto racing
    10. swimming
    It would appear thus:

    1. Football (Soccer)
    2. Cricket
    3. Hockey (Field)
    4. Tennis
    5. Volleyball
    6. Table tennis
    7. Baseball
    8. Golf
    9. American Football
    10. Basketball

    You're right, netball ain't there.

    in the first 100 years of professional sports, baseball had the best athletes. Now, its a tossup whether its NBA guards or NFL skill position players. basketball is the most watched sport in the USA between college (where baseball is no where near college football or basketball in fan interest) and pros. Football is the most popular pro sport to watch even though obviously more people watch pro baseball (162 games) or pro basketball (cannot recall how many games-is it around 80) than pro football

    on a world level the most popular sports to watch are Soccer, racing, tennis, field hockey and table tennis. The most popular sport to play on an organized level is soccer (team) and table tennis (individual)

    more people train seriously in table tennis than any other sport
