A lot of that area is hidden from the Yankee's.
It's our some of our last free outposts of Southerness.

This map has about as much validity as...

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".
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)

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.
And highly doubt Lee County, Alabama are Falcons fags
They really aren't that bad, except for Matty Ice this and Matty Ice that.

Those are the most interesting things, to me, and the stories behind them.
The area of Raiders fans in Idaho just made me giggle
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?

I wipe my bottom with this nonsense.
