Here's a map, that may be more reflective of the US NFL fan base as a sample size.

I don't understand this map. Therefore, I discredit it.
I love how the Jets have NO representation on this lol
I'll also add: while there are a ton of Redskins fans here, I think it pales in comparison to the number of Steeler fans. But that shouldn't come as any surprise. Lot of bandwagoners. When you win 6 titles, you're gonna have a ton of fans, no matter where the team is located. Gotta admit, though, it was awfully funny this year, seeing the Steeler fans so quiet.

That map is bogus, the Niners and Raiders should have overlap in the bay area and sacramento area, yet it shows all 49ers fans in almost the entirety of California.

(Not to bring in politicalness to this thread, but who do you think "won" this state? Red or Blue?)
They honestly need better shading. Where a DEEP color means close to 100% are fans, and a softer shade (almost transparent) means 51% (Or 34% if there's 3 teams competing).
And they need to make this map bigger and interactive, I want to see the percentage breakdown by county.... Who makes a map like this? oh right, Facebook...
RIP Blake Fomby... You will be missed... Love you brother. Hope they keep the roof open at Cowboys Stadium so you can still watch them from up there...
Reading your post got me to thinking: where have all those Chicago Bulls 'fans' gone?
Good call with the Bulls fans. I don't seem to see many of them around anymore.
The Southern Virginia portion makes me want to throw up, that is so embarrassing for this state.
Facebook likes are a little misleading, but are kind of accurate. When you go by facebook likes you are looking at a majority of younger people like 14-27, these young people in southern Virginia don't feel the pull of DC or even remember the "glory days" and rural areas tend to usually front run for an obnoxious team like the Steelers or Cowboys. Older people in the southern more rural counties are less likely to have facebooks than people people here I would imagine, so if you factor the older people of the southern counties into this, you might see almost all Redskins across the board. I think with a 10-6 season and the media and playing pull of a guy like RG3, Redskins will gain ground.
I hope, at least. My hypothesis is almost all speculation.
