Is refresh rate important for my outdoor TV?

I posted previously for some input on outdoor tv's and got a range of advice from buying expensive outdoor specific TV's to buying cheaper TV's understanding the life span will be short (I'm in Florida; humidity, etc).

I think I am going to go the cheaper route trying to stay $500 or less if I can. Specifics I am looking for are:

1. 45 to 50 inch range
2. Smart TV
3. Samsung or Sony is my preference
4. Refresh Rate (this is my question and reason for my post)

Refresh rate - how big of a deal is this for an outdoor TV that will get minimal use and mostly for football games? I understand it makes a difference if it is your "main" TV for movies, etc and worth paying the price for higher refresh rates. Prices seem to really jump if you go from a 120 rate to 240, etc.

Can I get buy with a 120 rate or will I regret it? Again, factor in the intended use which is minimal, outdoor environment, not the best lighting, etc.

I have a 55 120hz and Im happy with it, my girlfriends is a year old Samsung 120hz and her picture looks amazing compared to my vizeo. I think you would be just fine

It's an outdoor TV. It's a consumable, not an investment. Go cheap, be happy if you get three years out of it. Ask me how I know!! (I'm also in FL). 120hz refresh is more than adequate.
