NFL football in particular and football in general is bigger than ever in every way, certainly beginning with the all-important category of fan interest.
Last week one of the USA TODAY Snapshots (a quick poll of readers which the paper does daily, on a variety of topics) asked the question, “What is America’s favorite sport?”
Here is exactly how the responses appeared in USA TODAY:
Pro Football 35%
Pro Baseball 16%
College Football 12%
Auto Racing 9%
Pro Men’s Basketball 5%
