Hahahah Steelers at #1? What a joke! Did you see the champ game after halftime? That stadium was a ghost town! There were empty seats everywhere. Great loyal Steeler fans, when everything goes bad they are nowhere to be seen! Only when they had scored a few touchdowns had the seats visible on TV filled in more, and those may have just been people migrating down from the cheap seats. Packers at #2 I'll debate, because they are so flipflop. Every Pack fan I know (and I know plenty) comes in after they lose talking about how much the packers suck and how Brett Favre should retire and how he sucks. And when they win they herald them as "Gods Team." Yeah, ok.

Washington not being in the top 5 is a travesty!

Yeah, Snyder raised all the prices, but we sell out 95,000 seats every week!

I think this article may be ranking the level of the fans. i.e. Cleveland and Oakland may not have as many fans as other teams but the ones they do have are die hard loyal fans. On the other hand, Seattle has a ton of fans but not as many dedicated ones. Just a trend I noticed, it's not necessarily true. But unless you go by attendance and ticket sales this whole article is based on opinion, so you don't need to get yourselves worked up on it.

I'm glad someone else noticed that. My girlfriend and I were watching the game and she commented that the seats were all yellow. I told her that the fans were probably just wearing a lot of yellow to support the team. It was just then that I noticed the seats were actually all empty! What a crock, everyone ditching their seats when things are getting rough. Horrible, just horrible.

My friend is a season ticket holder for the Oakland Raiders, and he took me along for the last few games of the season since he had extra tickets. During the last game of the season against Tennessee, the weather was hellish. Pouring rain, high winds, just miserable. My friend sat in a rain soaked seat wearing his Raiders jersey, screaming til the bitter end and never budged from his seat until the game ended. That's a real fan.

STFU 34.You could only wish that your team's popularity was spread as far as the Steelers.Now,granted,there were some bandwagoners that may have left early but it has been noted all year that Heinz Field usually seems empty after half because it seems that they are slow coming back from halftime festivities...beer,food,take a leak.I have been there and witnessed it personally so I know what it's like,they even published articles in local papers about it.So if you want to keep downing a team superior to yours,that's fine,but I suggest you know what you're talking about before you do.

Steeler Nation is everywhere,we crush your fanbase like bugs,no contest.

I think I have to agree that Steelers fans are the most widespread. They are EVERYWHERE. The Steelers became associated with blue-collar America in the '70s when they were so great, and have stuck ever since. It's like a cult, almost.

I've been to 2 niner-steeler games (in SF), and both times there were about as many Steelers fans as 49er fans. :-t

I guess being a mod means you can skirt the rules eh? Since you feel you can swear at and flame me. I just neatly stated the facts that the stadium was a ghost town after halftime, and I'm sure other people noticed that. WHat does having the most widespread fan base mean? You have the most bandwagon fans? Downing a team superior to mine? Should I remind you what team still has more championships in the history of the NFL? Edit, ooops the Pack still has more.

NFL fan bases ranked, cheeseheads fill No. 2 spot

1. Pittsburgh: For some reason, I just never seem to meet an obnoxious Steelers fan.
