    NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
    1. New England Patriots
    2. Pittsburgh Steelers
    3. Indianapolis Colts
    4. Green Bay Packers
    5. New York Jets

    Detailed metrics for selection not defined in the article. I would think the Jets fans would be the most loyal seeing how their team unlike the others listed hasn't won anything for half a century

    Since it's a sports marketing firm, I bet the most heavily weighted criteria was fans bonding with players. And I bet Tom Brady is a huge reason for that high score. Even the goats like him.

    This is a stupid poll (aren't they all?). First of all, fan loyalty should not be re-evaluated on a year by year basis. And to poll 250 people per market? What is the margin of error when you poll 250 people in a region of millions?

    gimme a break.

    so what this poll is saying is that the better the team is, the more loyal the fan?

    what about the fan who goes to see the 0-16 detroit lions? thats loyalty if you ask me.

    I'm a better fan of the Patriots than the rest of the NFL combined. Do I win something? ;)

    Us Pats fans stick with our team because we know our team always has a good chance when they cheat.

    That is a much better test then gauging the loyalty of a fan that roots for a team that's consistently in the playoffs every year.

    Have they seen this board after a Patriots loss? :)

    Good point.

    Add to the that, the fact that their coach is a Swinger with a foot fetish who apparently was under the belief that Youtube was a private video forum, and their QB is trolling for girlfriends at the Junior Prom, and you really have to give a ton of credit to Jets fans for staying loyal.

    Thankfully, it's not that hard to be loyal to this franchise since 1994.

    No kidding. If the pollsters spent 5 minutes on here after a loss, they would drop us at least 20 spots.

    Don't confuse critical fans with bandwagon fans...



    Critical fans are also loyal.......

    Venting is good :cool:

    No Jersey Selected

    I consider the current crop of Pats fans much less loyal than the fans of the other 3 pro teams in the region. When Brady is gone these fans will be much less loyal.
