Saints Brand One of the Strongest

According to the Turnkey Brand Index, the New Orleans Saints are the 7th strongest brand of all major sports in North America. The survey includes the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS.

In relation to its own market compared to other markets, the Pittsburgh fans have a greater affinity for their football team than New Orleanians do for the Saints. That is profoundly disappointing.

Well what the hell else is there to do in Pittsburgh?

Seriously, good post. Do you have a link to those findings?

Unfortunately, the link will cost you $5,000. I was watching M&M on ESPN2 when they flashed that data.

Re: Saints Brand One of the Strongest

I am in a different city almost very week.
no doubt steelers.
for a while last year there were a bunch of band wagoners and I would see saints gear in Seattle.

I was even finding Cajun restaurants running the saints game in South Dakota. really. I didn't even see that in 2000.

I don't know if the storybook/reggie bush thing got a few on board - but it is still hard to find saints fans at the bar or gear at the sotre outside the gulf coast.

but I can only find steelers, cowboys, redskins, patriots, colts, and whoever the nearest local team is in the truck stop.

so I find "top 5" brand hard to believe.

well if it is true that just goes to show you that we support this team

I stand corrected I guess it is true...

Behind the Steelers in the top 10 were the NFL's New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers, NHL teams the Buffalo Sabres and Detroit Red Wings, baseball clubs the Boston Red Sox, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the NBA's San Antonio Spurs.
thanks for the link mjf150

Re: Saints Brand One of the Strongest

Bloody hell! Hard to imagine. I seemed like I was the only Saints fan in the UK in the 80s. Practically famous for it. Christmas meant many small Saints stuff from friends who really made an effort.

Still "felt alone" when I came over for games in the early 90s. Look, I never saw anyone taking the Saints seriously. The Saints seemed almost "my team". But I was more than "cool" when I wore my Dalton Hilliard shirt.

Now we have a phenomenon, a bitter-sweet phenomenon. New coach, oh come on, new blinking team (with Brees / Bush / over-performing unknowns moulded around the old school of Deuce, Horn...) on the back of nature's revenge Katrina and the controversies of how on earth the most powerful nation could not reduce the suffering. I am telling ya, getting Brees and Bush will be the stuff of legends. We had fantasy mixed with all that could be written about human strife. It could not happen, but it did.
