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.

 Here is the full listing:
1. Dallas Cowboys2. New England Patriots

4. New Orleans Saints

5. New York Giants

6. Indianapolis Colts

    Hahahahaha! The Raiders are 32? They love coming in here, and reminding us how “disloyal” our fans are… and they rank dead last? That’s irony at it’s best! I might bookmark that page.

  • Rob Base

    That’s going to get some raider fans blood boiling.

  • Calum Thompson

    Do you think it’s because they give the (non-SF) Bay area and LA to the Raiders as market? That would be rough, but not undeserved.

  • Santee Jack

    Lies, damn lies, and statistics……

  • Gunnar Martin

    Quite honestly, I’m a little surprised at how high we are (as an entire fan base that is) and how low the Faiders are, but that’s great! Suck it Oakland.

  • joerockt

    Love our position, but on what planet would we sit 3 spots above Green Bay?? They were ranked 10th in attendance last year, we were at 28th. Makes no sense.

    Raiders actually make sense based on their formula. Their average attendance was dead last in the league last year.

    • boltingindiego

      yah i would think packers at least top 10 maybe even top 5. I don’t know how were ahead of the pack.

  • joerockt

    Wow, SDSU Football ranks #1 among all non-auto qualifying conferences. Nice. AZTECS FIGHT!

  • tubbs45

    How in the hell are Titan fans above SD? HAHAHAHAHA Raiders in the basement…I think ‘median income’ must have been their downfall!

  • Adam

    I hope they post this on “just blog baby”

  • chas territo

    Bad friggin list! Bflo sells out regularly, devoted fans who more than not stay till the end!! How could they be listed in the 20′s? Makes no sense! GO BILLS!!

  • Bill Nichols

    DOH! Raiders last freaking place…… No shit sherlock… Faiders are last place in everything….. lol…. 11 is respectable, and at least we are ahead of the damn donkey show boys……. Bolt Up!!

  • Nick in PB

    This list is intriguing to say the least. It’s my guess that they factor in season ticket owners, the ones that never give up their seats. I know Charger fans that have had tickets since the Balboa Stadium days! Still, you would think Green Bay would be the highest in the league. Makes little sense. Glad to see the Raiders at the bottom though.
