    WOW, THIS DOESN’T SEEM BIASED AT ALL. What a scientifically sound poll!

    Cap’n, don’t be ridiculous. A) Were you under the silly impression that this was supposed to be in any way a scientific poll? Seems to me like a man-on-the street kinda thing that you take for what it’s worth. It is called “Kids in the hall” after all. B) What could possibly be biased about the the question? Fact: approximately one-third of our student fees go to athletics. The question asks people to give their own feelings about said fact? There is absolutely no leading in the question, and nevertheless several people were found who thought it was crappy. Pretty straightforward man.
