So, does football make us happy or sad?

足球會給我們帶來快樂還是悲傷?

Professor Peter Dalton, who by the way supports Newcastle, has been studying football and happiness. Using an app called Mappiness, his team asked fans to rate how they were feeling out of a hundred before and after a game. They analysed two million responses from 32,000 people.

彼得·道爾頓教授是英超紐卡斯爾聯的球迷,他一直在研究足球和幸福感之間的聯繫。通過一款名為“Mappiness”的應用,他的團隊讓足球迷對他們在球賽前後的感受打分。他們分析了來自32,000人的200萬份回覆。

Professor Peter Dalton, University of Sussex
This is probably the most comprehensive dataset ever collected on happiness. You’re twice as unhappy when your team loses as you are happy when your team wins. On average, it makes us sad and on the face of it, it’s (a) pretty irrational thing to do – to be a football fan. It doesn’t make sense, you’d be better off doing something else.

薩塞克斯大學 彼得·道爾頓教授
“這應該是目前關於幸福研究收集最全面的數據集。當你的球隊輸球後,你會比在球隊贏球時傷心兩倍。平均而言,足球讓我們感到悲傷,而且從表面上看來,成為一個足球迷是一個非常不理智的事情。這麼做沒道理,你還不如去做其它事情呢。”

Back at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland have lost 2-1 and are relegated for the second year in a row.

在光明球場,桑德蘭以2比1輸掉了比賽,並且連續第二年被降級。

Football fan
Come rain or shine, the true fans will be here next season, because if you love your team you’ll come, regardless.

球迷
不管發生什麼事情,真正的球迷仍會在下個賽季來到這裡,風雨無阻,因為你愛你的球隊,你就回來,不管怎樣。

Football fan
You’re always hopeful that your team’s going to win and you go with the people that you know – you’ve got friends that go there. Almost like family, we are, you know. And that’s what you enjoy. We enjoy the day.

球迷
你總是希望你的球隊能贏,你和你認識的朋友一起去看球。我們像一家人一樣。這正是讓我們喜歡它的地方。我們享受這一天。

So even if on average football makes us sad, there is always identity, family, hope.

因此,總體來說,即使足球讓我們感到悲傷,這裡總會有身份、家庭和希望的存在。
