Today was a bad day for women who have often wondered where their man’s loyalty lies. Is it with them, or with their team? It’s sports or sex, pretty much. And sports has won out.
Barclays commissioned a study of 32,000 soccer fans, and the answers finally answered the question.
More than 49% of men surveyed said football was No1 in their lives compared to family (48%), the job (30%) and relationships (30%).Now ladies, don’t get too upset about this. You see, men can’t help it. It’s part of our evolutionary programming.
And 81% of fans also admitted they talk about the game more than any other subject, with half saying it is the best ice-breaker topic.
“Throughout history men have fought in groups and football is just a modern-day version of that. It’s part of their survival programming and it’s in the genes,” psychologist Judi James said.See, we can’t help it! We basically have to watch sports. You wouldn’t want to stand in the way of evolutionary programming, would you?
