Football Fans:: Younger, richer than other sports nuts. "According to interviews and network viewing profiles, the average NFL viewer makes about $55,000 a year. That's compared to about $48,000 for the average NHL viewer, $43,000 for baseball and $39,000 for the NBA."

Hmm, that's interesting. I wonder if the NFL is more convenient for those who work 5-6 days a week (professionals). The NHL, MLB, and NBA requires constant viewing, mostly on the weekdays, which is difficult if you're working 9-5 hours on the weekdays. The NFL however is perfect for the 9-5 professional. One game per week on a Sunday of all days. Yep, I can schedule that on my $500 Palm.

Maybe the NFL viewers are less honest about how much they make. ;-)

Let's take a quick poll. What sport do you most identify with and how much do you make? As an NFL fan, I make $700,000. Golly, worldcup2002, you're right!

Looks like you make less than me. I am really Bill Gates.

Weird. I'm mostly a hockey fan, and I make about $46,000 a year. Maybe I should start watching more football.
