    I've got my own list. It's a 31 way tie for last place.

    Well, that blows the credibility of this article right out of the water. Chiefs fans are top 10.

    Cowboys #1. What a joke. Talk about bandwagon fans?? I went to a Cowboys/Niners game back in 95, when both teams were powerhouses. Rice scored on a long pass on the 1st series & the crowd was never heard from again. Niners won 38-20, and the crowd thinned out by the middle of the 3rd quarter, maybe sooner. We moved from the nosebleed seats to 40 yard line seats. I came away very disappointed at how uneventful the game was. At least the Cowboy cheerleaders were legit! And I do remember having a phenomenal steak there in Dallas.

    I worked with the Cowboys Cheerleaders back in '88...overrated.

    :cool:

    Cowboys fans are ridiculous though...calling them bandwagon fans isn't extreme enough - no loyalty when things get tough.

    Good for this guy for getting some annual run to his school's website and his personal brand. Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if the Cards moved up the rankings next year.

    The biggest weight that is weird is the road equity weighting. If a home team's stadium is consistently full of home fans, how would you measure the road attendance? I also have a problem with measuring the social equity as twitter followers; it would seem like Instagram would be a better measure, but maybe they're equivalent.

    Anyway, anything to get the ol' outrage machine rolling, right?

    JMO, but the Browns' fans seem rated too low.

    As soon as Brady and Billicek are gone Pats fans will go back down to the bottom 5, Phoenix has so many transplants from other places that they have their loyalty to other teams instead of coming on and supporting the Cardinals it's kind of pathetic actually

    Two ways to measure it:

    1. Intensity among current fans (i.e. how willing are they to jump out the window after a loss? How football-smart are they?

    2. How popular is the team on a national basis (i.e. # of fans in other cities)?

    I'd agree that Team Felon fans are most obnoxious of the 32, but I'd have to believe there are a lot more of those weasels nationwide.
