Clichéd heading!

May 10, 2007

The Age newspaper today ran a perfect example of getting the work experience kid to fill in as sports editor.

Daniella Miletic, using the obviously high quality statistics from the Sweeney sports report – a survey of one thousand Australians (nothing like a sample size of 0.0045!) – shows us that cricket is now Australia’s post popular sport.

According to a nationwide survey, cricket has engaged the hearts of 59 per cent of the population, surpassing swimming at 57 per cent and Australian rules with 56 per cent.

That’s right, 172 per cent of Australians dig cricket, Aussie rules, and swimming. And that’s just the top three sports! When you add all the rest in too, at least 876 per cent of Australians love sport. The ones that don’t love sport make up the remaining 45.6 per cent.

Go. For. Your. Life.

  3. about the sports figures…have you thought that some people may have responded to liking more than one sport? So that out of 100%, 59% liked cricket but they also liked AFL…
