Only One Out of Eight Football Fans Wants To Watch Their Team In Person
High-definition TV has RUINED a generation of sports fans. Yeah, it's easier, cheaper, WARMER, and more comfortable to watch a game at home. But NOTHING compares to being there live. At least nothing SHOULD. According to a poll by Discover card, only 12% of college football fans say their favorite way to watch a game is at the stadium. That's just one in eight.
83% say their favorite way to watch is at home. 4% say they like watching at a bar. 0% said their favorite place to watch is at the OPPONENT'S stadium.
But at least when they DO go to games, they stay. 71% say they stay and cheer until the end of the game, even in a blowout. 21% leave early to try to beat the crowd. 8% say they sometimes do both.
And finally, the survey found only 15% of fans are willing to admit they're FAIR-WEATHER FANS who only watch their team during a good season.
