Good. I didn't think it was possible after winning it all last year, but this year we're flying under the radar again. I love it.

The result of the poll on the foxsports (http://msn.foxsports.com/) main page is even more ludicrous. 45% of people would rather watch preseason football than regular season baseball? Wow, just wow...

I don't know why that is such a surprise to you with all of the PR hits MLB has taken over the last 10+ years.

I would rather watch my neighborhood glacier recede than watch regular season football.

The best part about being without a television is football season.

Good, I wish that number was higher so FOX would dump baseball completely. I'd rather watch preseason soccer than a baseball game on FOX.

Maybe all the voters agree, and are secretly attempting to get Fox to drop baseball.

Football doesnt keep my attention on TV...I would rather watch a high school football game in person than a NFL game on the TV. Also on a football team you dont know your players good like baseball you see everybody play but football I hear all these peoples names and I have no clue who they are.

Have you ever watched more than the first series in a preseason football game? Preseason football is the absolute worst. I would have never thought it'd be that close to popularity to America's pastime.

No it doesn't, the NFL's popularity is at an all-time high. Now I wouldn't personally choose preseason football over baseball but you have to remember that this is a national poll. Some people don't like baseball and you have your fans whose team is out of it on March 15. Then you have the people who quit watching the game after the strike and steroid crap who would choose watching paint dry over baseball just to make a point, etc...

I would think that fans of any sport would rather watch a game where the outcome actually means something.

Regular season football vs. baseball is a totally different question...but as Mr. Iverson once said, "we are talkin about practice!"

It's not all that hard to know the playerss names on a football team if you want to.

My father is a big football fan. When I was a kid, he was watching a playoff game and the center made a bad snap causing a crucial fumble. He questioned the starting center's parentage for five minutes, questioned why the Cowboys ever signed him and demanded that he be released on the spot. It turns out, there was a backup center he had never heard of in the game. The announcers didn't realize it until he was replaced and blamed the starter. It's a common mistake. You can't tell one center from another. Their numbers are even similar.

Most football players are anonymous to fans.

Not that I'm a fan. I lived in Wisconsin for four years and never saw a Packers game on television. The only Packer I could name was Mark Chmura, and only because he was in the Waukesha County Jail one morning.

Even so. It's preseason football. I love watching NFL games, but you couldn't pay me to watch preseason football.

My cousin was a third string/practice squad fullback for the Saints for a couple of seasons in the late 90's, to this day he complains about the rampant use of steroids/HGH by his teammates. The NFL has a huge PR hit coming in the next few years, if they don't, they are paying some very powerful people to keep this info under wrap.
