Howdy, folks! After two weeks, we at last have enough data to start breaking down our readership once again! Thanks to all of you who took the time to participate. And thank you for not skewing the sets too badly this year. Much appreciated.
As always, these are interactive pie charts – if you’re on a desktop browser, just mouse over the slices to see more information.
Ah yes, overwhelmingly 30-50 males as the core demographic of this site. Such surprising results here, truly.
We’re coming from a diverse number of occupations to [DFO], but it’s interesting to see that the second-largest slice of pie belongs to those in the field of education – which also includes myself. Figures that those of us around children all day are the most inclined to spend their evening free time pantsless and boozing with internet denizens. That’s just good logic there.
Once again, our American slant is extremely noticeable, with the California contingent leading the way as the most frequent readers of this site. In second place is the North Carolina contingent, although that may actually prove to be King Hippo and the Wee Baby Seamus just repeatedly submitting for the two of them.
If anyone wants Canadian/world data, I can post charts in the comments thread.
Of all the teams in the league, the ones with the most fans on [DFO] are the Bears, Packers, Broncos, and Steelers. A number others got only a paltry amount of votes – maybe we need more #content on them? Or maybe we just need BOLTMAN to smite the undeserving heathens into UNDYING ALLEGIANCE to the new Chargers. Haha, who the fuck am I kidding, nobody’s gonna watch them.
TV still seems to rule the day when it comes to watching games. I think next year I’ll be adding in a category to ask whether or not viewers are watching on RedZone – personally, I watch almost every afternoon game through RedZone; I think it’d be some interesting info to find out.
When it comes to the Internet, many of you still seem to be single-taskers. I have TweetDeck running a single column on the side of my screen, but my laptop still is dominated by [DFO] most every day. I don’t know what that makes me, other than an outlier.
Lots of baseball, college ball and hockey fans here. Soccer, when you add together all the various factions available here in the list – of the EPL, European leagues, MLS, and more – also has a large devoted following. The AFL also has a not-insignificant following on here – which I will attribute fully to Balls’ excellent AFL Beat posts. A great way to follow a sport that’s played at literally the exact opposite time the vast majority of our lives are happening.
The biggest takeaway from this whole survey, though, is that even with all the content produced – which is very popular, believe me folks, it’s yuge, the greatest stuff you’ve ever seen – amongst everything we produce here online, the Open Threads, which are dominated by you, the Commentist Party, are still the biggest attraction to here. Thank you for continuing to be as funny, engaging, and intelligent as hell. Here’s to another year of no pants, dick jokes, and hanging out as part of a fantastic online community. Cheers to you all.
