As hard as it is to believe at times, there are people who don’t watch sports. The percentages as to how many people that is though might come as a surprise.
Leave it to an ESPN site to provide these statistics. The fine people at FiveThirtyEight and ESPN research have crunched the numbers and found that 7 percent of all men between the third quarter of 2013 through the third quarter of this year didn’t care to watch sports. That breaks down to 1 in every 14 men. They don’t watch casually, don’t enter any fantasy leagues, don’t provide a bracket to NCAA Tournament office pools, don’t visit sports sites, they just don’t pay attention to sports at all. In fact, that number is the same for women, 7 percent of all females during that same time period didn’t watch sports either.
