Keep a close eye on your cholesterol, Raiders fans. A new study shows that fans of losing NFL teams tend to be more obese than fans of winning teams.
Via For the Win's Nate Scott, we learn of Pierre Chandon, the L'Oreal Chaired Professor of Marketing, Innovation and Creativity at INSEAD Business Schoool, and his study of NFL fans and their chunkalicious responses to defeat.
One day after a defeat, Americans eat 16 percent more saturated fat, and 10 percent more calories," Chandon writes. "But on the day after a victory of their favorite team, then it's the opposite. They eat more healthily. They eat 9 percent less saturated fat, and 5 percent fewer calories. There was no effect in cities without a team or with a team that didn't play."

That explains why everyone in Pittsburgh is a slob.
I gained 50 lbs in the preseason. < |:(~

Whats the government going to do about it?
Ohhh... so The Bills are responsible for my current shape???
How do I sue???
Step 1: Get a concussion.
Step 2: Join the NFLPA lawsuit.
Dolphins’ cheerleaders’ say otherwise. :-)
6 Lombardi trophies help ease the pain.
Cleveland explained in one headline. :)
And how much taxpayer money was wasted supporting this study?
Here is a direct link. I have saved it for later reading:
Some libs and nannies have done away with keeping score at children’s games, as losing hurts their self esteem. Competition is a bad thing, and everyone is a winner just for showing up.
When I worked for Domino’s, I could always tell if the Broncos won or lost. If they won, we’d be busy as hell the rest of the night. If they lost, we’d be dead.
What is it they say? You can put lipstick on a pig...
Sighs.....the sad thing is that there must be either a lot of Steeler fans or the entire NFL had a losing season.
Not buying it. I’m a Carolina Panthers fan, so according to this, I should be morbidly obese. I’m not even fat!
One definition of football.
