SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight I will discuss the Hall of Fame voting that took place last week that put Mets catcher Mike Piazza and Mariners slugger Ken Griffey Jr. into the hallowed halls of Cooperstown. Reflections on both careers, and their impacts on both teams, plus what did the voting mean for the steroid guys? John Pielli is the scheduled guest on the program tonight.
The latest Seton Hall Sports Poll, which polled 771 Americans (by landline and cellphone across the nation), was unveilved on January 28, 2016. With the Super Bowl coming right as the presidential primary season “kicks off,” Americans said they were following the presidential contests by more than a 2-to-1 margin over football, with 60% choosing the political contests, and 24% the Super Bowl. 53% say the political races will be the most competitive, compared to 37% naming the Super Bowl.
The reasons for watching the Super Bowl are of course, varied. 40% said it was best explained because they were football fans, with 19% saying they were a fan of one of the participating teams, 18% saying it was a “big event,” and 10% interested in the commercials. Only 2% said it was primarily because they had a bet on the game, although in another question, 13% said they participated in wagering on the game.
Peyton Manning, whose name emerged recently as having been sent human growth hormones (the report was on Al Jazeera and was recanted by the source), was the subject of a question on whether that report changed opinions about him. (During the polling period, the NFL announced it would investigate the charges). A significant 11% said they thought “less favorably” of him, and 76% said it had no effect.
Pete Rose, who will be inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this year, was the subject of two questions, the first asking whether that was appropriate - to which 47% said yes, 33% no. The second asked if he should be eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to which 56% said yes, 28% no.
The Seton Hall Sports Poll has been conducted regularly since 2006.

Established in 2006, the Seton Hall Sports Poll is the nation's only college-based poll addressing issues of the day from the world of sports.
Sponsored by The Sharkey Institute and emanating from the college's renowned Still School of Business, the poll has surveyed the nation's populous on matters of interest, such as PED use, gambling, public funding, payments to college athletes, effectiveness of sports officials, popularity of key sports figures, and much more.
As colleges like Marist and Quinnipiac survey political questions, Seton Hall provides valuable insights for sponsors, governmental leaders, sports officials and fans.'
The poll meets all criteria for polling standards, including wide spread use of cellphone calling, which makes certain to include younger people in the samplings. The call are randomly dialed across the country and weighted as required to deliver accepted standard results, usually with a 3-4% margin of error.
The poll is directed by Rick Gentile, former Vice President of CBS Sports and a member of the Seton Hall faculty. Rick began his career at the Elias Sports Bureau, his first immersion into the statistics that are sports.

Hi, I am Pastor Steve Hall. I am the Pastor of the Johnston Church of God. A small church in Johnston SC with a very BIG heart for GOD and His people. Also the co owner of WUCC 99.9 F.M. in Williston SC. a Christian radio station reaching 1.5 million potential listeners. I have over 20 years in pastoral ministry however my greatest work for God has yet to be completed. Our church has a outreach ministry in Peru where I have been on 2 missions' trips and plan on going back in August 2016. My new assignment from God started in January 2016. My Father has called me and the Johnston church to fight against the Jezebel spirit including all of her many demons.
My Grandpa Hall would say " I can't but WE CAN" so let the Saints join Together and let us bring down Jezebel.
Pastor Steve Hall
