From Pat Coyle of Coyle Media:
Over the past 18 months, sports teams have amassed huge followings on Facebook and Twitter. In an attempt to understand the fans following sports teams, Coyle Media has fielded a series of surveys in partnership with various professional and collegiate teams. We’ve collected over 12,000 completed surveys and learned a lot about sports fans and their social media preferences.
We are continually analyzing these data looking for insights. We’ve found it particularly interesting to see how fans behaviors can vary from sport to sport, and between various media channels: Facebook, Twitter and Team Websites.
Below is the graphical representation of their data:

The Ontario Hockey League will force all of its players to wear neck protection starting next week.
The league has annouced mandatory neck protection must be worn by all players effective March 10.
Update March 6th, 2008 - 12:23pm ET:
A new group named “Keep neck guards out of the OHL” was created on Facebook early Wednesday morning. By Thursday afternoon, more than 180 people joined the group on the popular social networking website to sound off on the new regulation.
One group member wrote, “We might as well put the cage on if we have to wear neck guards.”
Another hockey player posted a note saying he simply won’t wear it. “I probably shouldn’t be in this league anyway but I’ll be pumping gas before I will wear a neck guard,” he wrote.
