We've always known the Who Dat Nation ranks among the most loyal and passionate fan bases in sports. Now there's analytical evidence to prove it.

Saints' fans rank among the most loyal and supportive in the NFL, according to a new report by sports marketing professors at Emory University.

The Saints ranked fourth in the NFL behind the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and New York Jets, making them the most ardent fans among all small-market NFL clubs. The only other small-market teams in the Top 10 were Indianapolis (No. 6) and Tennessee (No. 10).

Professors Mike Lewis & Manish Tripathi measured team box office revenues relative to team on-field success, market population, stadium capacity, median income and other factors to rank the teams.

"The Saints are a more recent success story, but the team's new success combined with limited professional sports options in New Orleans has created a very strong fan base," the report said.

Saints fans will also love the report's ranking of their archrivals, the Atlanta Falcons: No. 31. Only the Oakland Raiders prevented the Falcons from a last-place overall ranking in the NFL.

No surprise here, I believe this was already a well known fact.

Don't pick on the ATL. They can't help it if football is too hard to understand.

Listening to Falcons fans on NFL Sirius this morning lol!

"Matt Ryan is unstoppable"
"Julio Jones will be the best WR in the league this year"


Last week the same guys wouldn't even call in.
