Default NFL team fans by US County

a really interesting article and graphics, especially looking at areas changing throughout the playoffs.

...That said, there are people out there using all our Likes and comments and preferences to look at more interesting trends. People like Sean Taylor (who actually works for fb). For instance: according to Taylor, Facebook has roughly 35 million account holders in the U.S. alone who have Liked the page of one of the National Football Leagues's 32 teams. That, he says, represents "one of the most comprehensive samples of sports fanship ever collected." All told, more than 1 in 10 Americans have declared allegiance to one NFL team or another. When he plumbed the depths of Facebook's data wells he came up with a county-by-county map of NFL fandom in the United States:


The map lends itself well to analysis. In some cases, Taylor notes, "whole states and even entire regions of the country uniformly support a single team" (looking pretty orange there, Wyoming); in others, individual states are divided against themselves (see Florida). But things get really interesting come playoff season:


Nationwide allegiances shift dramatically when you remove non-playoff teams. By early January, for example, Bronco Country had more than doubled in size. Texas, once a nearly solid greyish-purple monster, was suddenly a heterogeneous mixture of red, purple, orange and grey.

It looks like Hinsdale County. Here's their website. http://hinsdalecountycolorado.us/

Hinsdale County is the third least densely populated of the 64 counties of the State of Colorado of the United States. The county population was 843 at 2010 census.

Should be pretty easy to invade and conquer.

No orange love over here in VA (even though there's a large contingent of us... hmm).

I read through this yesterday and the one that I thought was pretty interesting was the graphic that showed "Most Common Fan Friends." Meaning, as a Broncos fan who are we more than likely to associate with when it comes to fans from other teams. Here's the result:

I spent way too long trying to figure out why there were so many Broncos fans in South Florida.

There needs to be more colors. Maybe some texturing of some sort.

Wow, apparently we don't talk to anybody. We only show up on Oak and KC's top 5.

the Houston metro area has over 6 million people. They don't have it bad.

Now, look at the Jets compared to the Giants. That's sad.

I'm suprised New Mexico is Cowboys country. Every time I go there, it seems mostly Broncos-oriented. Especially in Santa Fe - they have Broncos billboards and everything.
