Pretty accurate map depicting the amount of fans in each state

The NFC North teams should be commended for pretty much owning their entire states. I guess they have the benefit of being historic teams.

I live in Columbia and I'll say this, they couldn't care less about NFL football here. It's like it doesn't even exist. Maybe if one of their beloved gamecocks goes to the NFL they may care but generally they don't. As for it being totally steeler country I feel like that is pretty accurate. A friend I work with is from Pittsburgh so I dont get annoyed with him but he meets so many other fans at bars around here that its a little ridiculous. Apparently they like the warm weather.

I always like asking Steeler "fans" what does the three stars in the logo represent.....they're clueless. When I asked one at a bar at the beach why he supports them, the reply was (no sh#t) "They win alot"........bandwagon morons.

Here is another map that has Eastern NC as Redskins territory which i would have thought.

Sad to say but here in Wake Co it goes like this 1. Cowboys fans, 2. Redskins fans 3. Steeler fans 4. Panthers fans (most ppl 2nd team tho if that counts for something)

Well, we must live on opposite ends of town... Steelers BY FAR are #1 here. Other than that, I'd agree with your list... especially the part about the Panthers being a "second team". :(

And highly doubt Lee County, Alabama are Falcons fags

Yes but, living here for school its not as much panthers as you might think. Yea they are Cam newton Fans. But when the Panthers started off cold. They stopped showing the games on TV, it there was no other Area NFC team being shown the which happened quite a lot they wouldn't show an NFC game in the panthers time slot anymore. Depressing but true. See plenty of Falcons fans here though, heck even one of my good friends is a falcons Sth.

They really aren't that bad, except for Matty Ice this and Matty Ice that. :sleep:

The area of Raiders fans in Idaho just made me giggle

Those are the most interesting things, to me, and the stories behind them.

For example the Cowboys fans of VA. You might think it's just holdovers from their 1990s bandwagoners, but in reality it goes back to their old owner George Preston Marshall, who was an open racist and a major opponent of racial integration. A lot of would-be local Redskins fans decided to cheer for their division rivals as protest, and it got passed down through generations.

To those of you doubting this maps validity. It is simply a collection of statistics based off the number of "likes" a teams page has received. Because "more than 1 in 10 Americans have declared their support for an NFL team on Facebook" I would call this pretty reliable/valid data.

That being said, the map breaks down by county and does not give any information about 2nd/3rd etc. choices made. Pretty awesome visual if you ask me.

Well I like the Chiefs on Facebook, does that mean I threw a tally to the Panthers and Chiefs?

Look at the fanbase during the playoffs. Nobody in NC was pulling for the Seahawks?

I wipe my bottom with this nonsense.
