I am Norwegian (from Bergen) and I feel as if football is more popular than hockey by a wee bit.

The picture emerging from website browsing is not representative. Soccer and winter sports (probably followed by cycling) are BY FAR the most popular sports in Norway (viewer ratings/media coverage, tickets sold, and participant), but is covered by TV, sports sections of newspapers and general sports sites. Hockey, and particularly martial arts and skateboarding, score high in this list because those fans use specialised websites a lot - precisely because there is no coverage in other mass media. The poll in Norway is thus not for which sports are most popular but for which sport's fans get their info from specialized websites.
