Sports in the Media: Perceptions of Athletic Activities and Their Influence on Leisure

David Atkin, Leo W. Jeffres, Jae-Won Lee, and Kimberly A. Neuendorf

The current study examined relationships between sports consumption, values, and media use.

These findings suggest that the “passive” leisure allocations commonly ascribed to sports viewing do not displace “active” leisure in the form of actual attendance at sporting events and programs. With regard to sports competition generally, then, the authors see little support for Putnam’s (1995, 2001) metaphor of “bowling alone” (or media-induced malaise) among our sports fans.
