NFL Most Loyal Fan Bases - Chargers Rank 11th

Someone has done a study on the most loyal fan bases around the NFL. They had all kinds of different analytics that they factored in and came up with their list.

Per Emory Sports Marketing Analytics program:

In our series of fan base analyses across leagues, we adjust for these complicating factors using a revenue premium model of fan equity.  The key idea is that we look at team box office revenues relative to team on-field success, market population, stadium capacity, median income and other factors.  The first step in our procedure involves the creation of a statistical model that predicts box office revenue as a function of the aforementioned variables.  We then compare actual revenues to the revenues predicted by the model.  Teams with relatively stronger fan support will have revenues that exceed the predicted values, and teams that under perform have relatively less supportive fan bases. We provide more details on the method here and here.
