Ranking NFL Teams by Local Fan Base

by Jerry Bader

I expected Green Bay and Pittsburgh to duke it out for #1.I didn't expect to see New Orleans between them. The perception of Green Bay is that all it has is the Packers and the community is obsessed with them. Well, with the criteria of "percent of population that watched, attended, or listened to the team in the past 12 months," the Packers score an 88% It is an amazing number.

For a city the size of Pittsburgh to be near 80% is truly amazing. Okay, the head scratcher; the Brewers are #5 in MLB? Really? And three of the top five in the MLB are in the same division.
