Facebook Data Provides The Most Accurate NFL Fandom Map Ever Created
 
Data mining at its finest:thumbsup:

Facebook's Data Science team has combed the more than 35 million users who have "liked" a team's fan page, and put it into graphic form, down to the county level. Sean Taylor, who headed the research and analysis, was kind enough to send along the high-resolution maps.

Note Ravens fans have Steelers fans as friends but Steelers fans do not have Ravens fans as friends

All my friends are Redskins fans, go figure. I am friends with an Eagles fan, A Rats fan, a Cowboys fan, a Pats fan, some other Steelers fans, a Fins fan, a Lions fan, and a Chargers fan.

i didnt even notice alaska. i would attribute that to a lack of "natives" who are loyal to a team. my dad (from pgh) was stationed in the alutian islands near russia while in the air force. the military certainly transfers alot of steelefans all over the world.

maybe the majority of ice road truckers are from PA? :chuckle:

im surprised hawaii is a steeler state. theres a shitload of fans here that are still riding the 49ers and dallas bandwagon from the 80's and 90's. nobody was a steeler fan in 97, dallas fans gave me shit all the time for wearing my rod woodson jersey
