Fans preseason preference – NFL
Now this month, a poll by the Columbus Dispatch's website reveals that sports fans prefer to watch NFL preseason football more – a lot more – than the preseason games of the other three major sports. A whopping 80.9 percent of respondents chose the NFL as their favorite preseason sport to watch on TV, over exhibition baseball (7.9 percent), and preseason NHL (7.4) and NBA (3.8). This summer, NFL fans have 11 nationally televised games to watch – including four this weekend (8/15-19) – plus their local team telecasts.
