Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Are You Ready For Some Football?

With the preseason in full swing and the regular season just around the corner, there's no doubt that Americans are ready for some football. At Survey Analytics, many of us are Seattle Seahawks fans, some are Cincinnati Bengals fans, and we even have a few Ohio State/ University of Michigan fan rivalries. Whatever team you root for, whether it be for the NFL or a college team, we thought it would be fun to get into the football spirit by showing the top 5 infographics on football.

While you're at it, check out our TURF Analysis Playbook webinar that aired earlier this week. It's a fun 30-minute presentation about TURF Analysis with a fun football theme and survey thrown in there. Enjoy!

#4: 16 Things You Didn't Know About the NFL by SterlingSatellite

  • Footballs were never made out of pig skin. Actually, pigskin refers to a crude soccer ball that was made from a pig's bladder. NFL footballs come from cowhide. It takes 3,000 cows to supply the leather for a one year supply of footballs for the NFL.
  • During a regular NFL game, you are only going to see 11 minutes of actual playing, 17 minutes of replays and 67 minutes of players just standing there. 
  • Since 2000, every player to appear on the cover of the Madden NFL video game has suffered a season-altering injury or accident.

Top 5 Infographics of the Week: Cyber Security

Earlier this week, we experienced a power outage with our data center at Internap. During this short period of time, our customers were unable to access the site. Luckily, it didn't last long and we are back up and running now thanks to our dedicated support team that responded quickly and worked diligently.

Cyber security is, and always has been, a very important issue for us as we continue to grow and meet the demands of a technology-driven society. Nothing is more paramount than the safety of your valuable data. And apparently we weren't the only ones affected, as LinkedIn was experiencing difficulties on the same day and Internap had 3 massive outages earlier this year. Check out these infographics with stats on the importance of cyber security and the impact it can have on small-medium sized businesses.
