Heard this earlier on WFNZ. We're 32 out of 32, New England's #1:

I think if we're talking right this second, I can't argue with that. Last season it got to the point where you had people posting about how they were mocked for wearing Panthers gear....in the city of Charlotte. However, I was there for that MNF game vs. Tampa Bay back in '08. If this team gives us ANYTHING, we'll support them.

Ranking Browns fans in the bottom five tells me that survey is flawed.

That, plus they're selling their services...

I try to not get information from websites that do not appear to have been updated since 1995.

Browns, Raiders and Redskins fans on the bottom of the list make me very suspicious about their methodology.

That's a b.s. measurement. It's obviously measuring popularity, not loyalty. The top teams are all teams that have been good recently. Washington would be in the top 5 if this poll was any good.

Loyal means you stick with the team through thick and thin. Good teams like the Patriots have loyal fans AND bandwagon fans because the team is a perennial playoff contender, so that inflates their popularity. The Panthers only have loyal fans because we suck right now. The only way to know which team has more loyal fans is if the Patriots had a 1-15 season this year, then compare the number or loyal fans versus our loyal fans.

exactly.

we also had the worst team in the NFL and that was coming off a disappointing 09 season and no games were blackout. How many games do you think the Bucs and Jags had combined this year......

People trying really hard to make their company relevant. Yet, they're not. Sounds like they're just judging it off teams that have recently had a rough stretch vs teams that haven't - pretty dumb methodology to judge fans by.

The chargers and vikings have a hard time selling out when they're good.

That alone should put them at the bottom.

If anything, their rankings may be completely backwards...

You're telling me Raiders and Browns fans are bandwagoners? lol

They've been through some rough stuff and are still there no matter what. Raiders were one of the most successful franchises in the NFL but have been pretty bad for awhile no and the Browns have never had any huge success, yet their fans still support them.

I think they're just trying to capitalize off of our bad season. This team hasn't lost any fandom that I've seen - just look at the debates over the college players we might draft.
