Who has the #1 football fans?

Steelers fans: You're No. 1 ... so says ESPN

By staff reports
In a ranking of all 32 fan bases in the NFL, the Steelers are number uno, reports the Worldwide Leader.
OK, it was a tie with the Green Bay Packers. But with the help of ESPN analyst John Clayton (an East Braddock native), well, the Steelers got the nudge.

“No team is as woven into the fabric of a city. The organization’s stability has a lot to do with it, as generations of Steelers fans relate to the tradition of ownership (Rooneys), smashmouth football, quality head coaches (league-low three since 1969) and success (five Super Bowl titles). The season-ticket waiting list is extremely long and the consecutive sellout streak of 299 games, including playoffs, is unbelievable,” writes ESPN.com’s James Walker.

The, ahem, scientific rankings were based on seven factors including stadium atmosphere, how well the team travels, fan loyalty and tailgating.
