Fantasy Football Survey: NFL Team or Fantasy Team?

Dec 14, 2009

Nevada State College Survey

At one time or another, I bet everyone has wondered whether we should root for a fantasy player who is going up against our “real” NFL team.  I think it all boils down to a simple question:  does it feel better when my fantasy football team wins, or when my favorite NFL team wins?

My interest in this question goes beyond simply curiosity – in addition to being a die-hard sports fan, I’m a professor who is conducting research on this issue.  If you’re interested in taking part in the study (a fun study, I think, that asks about the things we like to talk about in our free time), please visit the link below.  The survey itself is quite short and should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete.  I’ll  be happy to share the results once the data have been collected and analyzed.  I know that 99% of the time people ignore stuff like this, so all I ask is that you click on the link and at least take a look at the first few questions.  If it’s not your cup of tea, feel free to bail out.

Your responses to the survey will be completely anonymous.  As you’ll see, I don’t ask for your name, your forum/member/guest name, or anything else that might allow me to identify you. If you have a few minutes, I would greatly appreciate it if you could help out a fellow fantasy player and football fan.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at research@nsc.nevada.edu

    I just took it. I tend to get more excited about my fantasy team these days. Then again I’m a Jets fan, so that’s not too difficulut

    Funny, though they’ve been playing better. I would rather have my team win (Pats) than my fantasy team, but I get more pumped from a fantasy win and more upset about a fantasy loss.
