    Track and field also attracts arguably the most sophisticated Web and blog coverage of any non-major U.S. sport through powerhouse sites such as and Robert and Weldon Johnson, brothers who began in 2000, say Web traffic has increased every year -- especially recently. Last year, unique visitors to increased 24 percent over 2008, and the first four months of this year have shown an even bigger boost: 52 percent over 2008.
    Uh oh, no mention of T&!!

    Meantime, USATF membership has grown by 30 percent to nearly 100,000 since 2001, with a 12 percent leap and a 10,000-member increase between 2008 and 2009. Television ratings -- though small by the standards of professional or collegiate football, pro and college basketball and baseball -- routinely beat the WNBA, NHL and Major League Soccer.
