Default NFL upsets related to spike in domestic violence calls

Some people just can't keep their cool when they're sure-thing football game turns into an upset, it seems.
A new U.S. study has found a 10% rise in domestic violence calls to police in areas where the local NFL team lost a game they were favoured to win.
Researchers analyzed 900 regular-season pro-football games and found that calls reporting men's assaults on their partners went up during a three-hour window that runs roughly from the final hour of a game in which the local team was not performing well as expected to the two hours following the upset loss.
When teams won unexpectedly or lost games that were expected to be close, there was no decrease in reports of violence.
"Our results suggest that the overall rise in violence between the intimate partners we studied is driven entirely by losses in games that matter most to fans," said David Card, one of the study's co-authors.

And these people give us good guys a bad name. My wife always "jokes" that I'm in a bad mood after games which is untrue and she knows that. She just likes to run with the stereotype and picks on me. It started to annoy me so she stopped but every once in a while she can't resist...



Hope we don't become another 911 statistic.

I find it sad that anyone's emotional state is directly tied to the outcome of an entertainment diversion.

35-3 broke me of that a long time ago. It's just a friggin' football game.

The ironic thing about what I said is that it shows that I'm just as guilty of the thing that I find sad.

I've never had high hopes for the Texans, as they have never really given us something to believe in. That being said, I know that I will get wrapped up in it when they eventually get there.

However, I will always keep it in context. Even if our team wins the Super Bowl, I'll still have to wake up on Monday morning and go to work. I guess it's just perspective of maturity.

I can't imagine beating my wife because a team I follow lost, though.

I wonder if there are an inordinate number of babies born 9 months after an upset win.

Feeling happy about a win our your team doing well is a good thing. Share the positive feelings with all in your world. I don't think it's hypocritical to use your maturity and lifeskills to ward off the negative in "hard times" yet share the wealth in "good times."

I too have learned to smile and get off the game ASAP when the stuff hits the fan. I'm a Houstonian, I live in Austin, but I'm a Houstonian. What better place to learn these skills at a COLLEGE PHD level?....lol. Howver, when things are clicking my team's way (IIRC ) all around me reap the benefits of our good fortune.

Having said all that I still feel the need to compartmentalize my feelings and kick the dog through the hedges when nobody is looking....
