Steroids? Overpaid players? Nope:
A new Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll finds that baseball fans think the high cost of attending games is by far the biggest problem in Major League Baseball right now.
The poll released Thursday found a whopping 63 percent of respondents said high prices are the game’s top trouble – up from 45 percent in a survey right before opening day. Worries over players making too much money or taking steroids lagged behind.
Google news search results for the following terms:
“baseball steroids”: 3500
“baseball player salaries”: 1769
“baseball high ticket prices”: 1100
So which is it? Are the fans complaining about the wrong things, or is the media writing about the wrong things?
