    The Dallas Cowboys have worn the nickname 'America's Team' as a badge of honor
    for 35 years, and now two university professors have given some academic weight
    to that title.
    A study from Emory University in Atlanta found that the
    Cowboys, long a fixture on America's TV sets, have the most loyal fan base in
    the NFL.
    The study measured fan attendance on game day and controlled for
    factors like the size and wealth of the market and whether fans still turn up
    when the team isn't performing so well on the field.
    Take it how you want (Size and Wealth shouldn't matter, i would however like to see this ranking with just fans turning up when the team is down)

    I was all ready to be extremely skeptical of this studies findings until I saw who came in dead last, and then thought that there must be some validity to it.

    There are liars, damned liars and then there are statisticians. But of course, even a blind statistician finds a bone every now and then......they got things right for the Faders.

    The Chargers at #11 ?? Are you kidding me? Is it just me, or has anyone else met more Chargers fans than Raiders fans?

    That looks like the same article I read on the webs, it is based off the last three seasons I believe. Given our last 3 years we did well on that list.

    The Oakland rank is odd to me, i mean over Miami and SD....come on. Florida has the worst sports fan (unless its college).

    Yep, some, but we all know that's all to wrong, dolts are the most fair weather fans. No way any dolt fandom history is that high.
