Company with too much time on hands: Keep Favre

A Chicago communications company conducted a poll of Green Bay citizens via the telephone with 74 percent participating. The results? According to "Other than the 33 percent who want Favre to start, 19 percent said they want him to return to the club as back-up quarterback and 15 percent prefer him in a role as player/coach. Only 17 percent of those responding to the poll said Packer management should trade Favre." This is the crazier part of this story: the survey was conducted "by telephoning everyone listed in the white pages of the Green Bay phone book between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday. Of the 49,721 calls that were made, 21,377 answered the phone and 9,995 took the survey, 46 percent of those who answered." This almost seems like a made up story. Who does this stuff. And why?
