4 Introduction Channel Media & Market Research, a leading data collection and market research organization, conducted an independent study among residents of New England about their opinions about the professional sports teams in the region. The focus of this study was to determine respondents’ opinions about all things related to the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, and New England Revolution. Channel Media & Market Research wanted to examine what teams and players fans admire, how they rate each organization, what they believe could be improved, and which sports radio and TV personalities and shows are their favorites. More than 7,200 people participated in this research and this is one of the most extensive sports surveys ever done in the New England region. This report contains the results of the questions each survey participant answered and provides a unique look into what the fans of New England really think about the teams they cheer for. 4

5 Methodology How the Study Was Conducted: This study was executed between July 22 and August The survey was conducted online using independent list sources (none of which was associated with any team, television or radio station) and respondents were invited to participate in the survey via an invitation. In total, the average survey lasted 14 minutes. A drawing for a number of $ Visa gift cards were used to encourage response. The results for the 7,236 qualified surveys are contained in this report. All Respondents in This Study:  Were from one of the following states: CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, or VT  Followed at least one professional sports team at least some of the time  Were males/females over the age of 18 years (one per household only)  Completed the entire survey 5

6 A Note About Surveys: Market research is utilized to collect data at a specific moment in time. It is a realistic look at the opinions, comments and attitudes of a given population at the time the survey is taken. When using market research it is important to note that it is not an exact science and often is subject to respondents’ emotions at the time of the survey or polling. Market research is an excellent tool for understanding how specific groups of a population think and act and how changes/modifications made based on their responses can affect their future behavior. The base sizes of this survey make this research significant and this survey has a margin of error of +/- 3% and confidence level of 96%. 6
