Sports with clout on the street

Former college lacrosse player here, been on the street for 6 years now. My nephew has a twin stepbrother that asked "what sports hold the most clout on Wall Street?".  I'm biased but wanted to know what the rest of you chi(u)mps think.

Football,  basketball, baseball, hockey 

No one cares if you were good at a low participation sport like lacrosse or crew or squash.  Those sports simply aren't competitive like the above. 

If you were a legit d1 football starter you will have tons of clout
