NFL fanbase by county
 
1 Attachment(s)
Saw this picture posted on facebook and thought it was interesting...NFL team popularity by county, based on the number of likes on facebook. Purely unscientific, but interesting nontheless

That's funny that Hawaii are all Steelers fans, lol.

I would think Buffalo has to have the smallest fanbase.

Lord, the Steelers have more of the Carolinas than Carolina.

Jets and Jacksonville look to be about the most pathetic in terms of "square footage owned". I'm surprised more of western Connecticut and parts of Vermont aren't Giants country, but the border for the New England states holds pretty firm for the Pats, other than the southwestern-most corner of Connecticut.

Wow, check out all the Chiefs fans in Atlanta. Who knew?

This doesn't work so well because they used the same color multiple times.

Wisconsin should just mass troops at the border and take over Michigan's upper peninsula. Michigan's era of colonial power is long past.

The Cowboys are like the plague.

Wisconsinites hate UPers (pronounced Yoo-pers)

So you're thinking genocide and then convert the area to winter wheat?

My guess is a big issue with this is sample size. In order for someone to be included in this, they have to 1) have internet access, 2) have a Facebook account, and 3) be motivated enough to "like" a team on there. I'd bet that's worth less than 1% of the population.

That's fine in big counties, but in a small county with only a couple thousand people, you'd only have 20 people in your sample. With that few people, you're going to get some weird effects.

think the chiefs line should bleed into oklahoma a little bit.

I don't think I ever met a single steelers fan growing up in wv.
