NEW SURVEY SHOWS THAT CANADIANS STILL HOLD CFL NEAR AND DEAR
Published January 30, 1998
Results of a new survey show that "more Canadians are becoming football fans," but don't want the NFL in Canada "if it spells the end of" the CFL, according to Dan Ralph of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. The Gallup Poll, which carries a margin of error of +/- 3%, surveyed 1,006 Canadians who follow pro football. Of those surveyed, 18% "don't want the NFL in Canada" at all, 12% want it only if it coexists with the CFL, and 8% want the NFL "even if it meant the demise" of the CFL. A "resounding" 62% said they "didn't care." In terms of interest, 21% of respondents said that they follow the NFL, "up from" 11% in '90. Fifty-nine percent of NFL supporters "also follow the CFL," while 63% of CFL fans "keep tabs on" the NFL (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 1/30).
