Why are sports teams losing their minds?

A new study by the Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Michigan suggests that fans of sports are losing their cool.

According to the report, the average fan of a team on the basketball court is less likely to get into a fight with a teammate, and is more likely to stop at the concession stand for a drink.

In addition, the study found that fans on the baseball diamond are more likely than fans of a traditional sports team to get aggressive toward players and staff members.

And the study finds that fans also tend to behave in ways that have been compared to violent and aggressive behavior in violent crime.

Researchers analyzed data from a series of surveys from more than 3,500 college students from across the country, who were asked questions on a variety of sports topics, including their favorite teams, their favorite sports teams, and how much they like to watch sports.

The results of the survey revealed that fans’ enjoyment of sports is tied to their enjoyment of other things in their lives, such as music and art, as well as their ability to concentrate.

“Our study suggests that sports fans are responding to the intensity and quality of their lives in ways which are at odds with the values of their teams and society,” study author Jennifer C. Kiley, a PhD candidate in the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Health and Exercise Science, said in a statement.

Kiley and her colleagues concluded that the study shows that fans are willing to be confrontational, angry and sometimes violent toward their team members.

“The authors propose that sports fan behavior may reflect an intrinsic value of being passionate and engaged in sports and are linked to higher levels of enjoyment and happiness,” Kiley said.

“They suggest that a desire to be aggressive or engage in violent behavior may be linked to a need to satisfy their inner drive for excitement, or even a desire for dominance.”

The study was published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
