I live in Birmingham and that’s actually pretty accurate. The Saints, Titans, and Falcons are all represented down here.
Bengals country actually extends further into southeastern Kentucky, from whence I hail.
Neal – I live in Birmingham too. xD I’m only really into college football, so I wouldn’t properly know. Roll Tide.
I don’t care that much about NFL either, that’s just what I’ve noticed.
I always thought the Washington Redskins played somewhere in the state of Washington. Boy do I feel dumb.
Happens a lot. When someone asks where I am from I have to be sure to say “Washington STATE” or else DC is the assumed suffix.
The majority of Montana football fans are not Broncos fans. I would say far more are Seahawks fans than just the NW corner. Also way more Vikings fans than this gives credit for. Honorable mentions include Raiders, Chiefs, Cowboys, and 49ers. It’s lonely out here for a Browns fan…
A lot of people in Los Angeles are still loyal to the Rams.
That’s true! I’ve never seen more of a melting pot for football allegiances than Southern California.
There’s those who are loyal to former LA teams like the Rams and Raiders. There’s those who support the Chargers and 49ers.
And there’s LOTS of people who aren’t originally from Southern California but have the misfortune of living here (such as myself) who support their teams from back home.
And ever since February, it seems I’ve encountered lots of Green Bay fans. I wonder how many of them were Saints fans the year before…
This map is wrong. Everyone knows the Steelers have the most fans and they are America’s team. I mean, they are Obama endorsed.
Boom! Steel Curtain baby!
I don’t really like the name “America’s team”, but the Packers are undeniably owned by a greater percentage of America than any other team.
And we beat you. :D
I’d have to agree with this– the Steelers are a nationwide team. There’s at LEAST one Steelers Bar in every state– and even in other countries!
In fact, last time we were in the Super Bowl, people were making a fortune shipping Iron City Beer (which tastes like crap, btw) all over the place for Super Bowl parties in other places, both national and international.
I suspect this phenomenon is because the blue collar, nitty gritty, drinking town with a football problem does have it’s own yinzer charm (along with seven major universities), it’s not really the kind of place you want to STAY forever. Instead, it exports countless Steeler fans to the ends of the earth.
Huh. There’s something kind of missional about that, isn’t there? ;)
Good try Abraham (I know you live in Minnesota)…but as a Packer fan the whole map should be Green and Gold.
The Broncos own everyone on square miles.
Hmmm. All I see is the Lone Star. Go Cowboys!
Huh… see, my findings are a bit different: http://cl.ly/6J3S
ESPN and I beg to differ.
Perhaps that map would be accurate if Washington State were colored green and blue. We are still very resentful of Super Bowl XL.
Man, why does the Keweenaw always get the shaft on maps?
I can’t speak for the res of the map but it’s entirely wrong about southern nevada, it’s by far more for the niners, with the cowboys as runner ups and both fans hate each other so it would be wise to be careful wear you drink and watch football in vegas.
Hah, being a Broncos fan I still find it hard to believe people that far north are fans. With how bad we’ve been we can barely keep fans in our own state :P
