Flemington, NJ, August 29, 2007 – A new national focus group conducted among 303 Americans revealed that an overwhelming majority (82%) agree with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s decision to indefinitely suspend Atlanta Falcons’ Quarterback Michael Vick from the NFL.
The communications research study was conducted by HCD Research during August 28-29, using its mediacurves.com web site, to obtain Americans’ views on a video clip of Michael Vick, in which he apologizes for running an illegal dog fighting operation.
While viewing the video, participants were asked to indicate whether Vick’s apology was believable or not believable by moving their mouse from left to right on a continuum. The responses were recorded in quarter-second intervals and reported in the form of curves. Participants were also asked pre- and post viewing questions.
