The NFL's Best Fans - Forbes
one criterion is "% of population attending or watching", a stat also known as "how could Green Bay NOT win?" Green Bay has 100,000 people.

didn't they struggle to sell out a playoff game?

Yeah, but it was like -40 degrees that game. It only got 12 below where I live and the whole town practically shut down. You are at a very real risk of hypothermia if you're in that kind of weather for any length of time.

So we are arguably the best tightazzed fans? No. We shop fanatics.com and frequent blackandgold.com.

Interesting correlation of events how the Superdome wanted to "upgrade security" by having "NFL approved handbags" and now concession prices have skyrocketed...

The next thing you'll see is Goodell wanting NFL Superbowl Halftime performers "pay for the privilege"...wait, that has happened as well...

Re: Forbes Ranks Best NFL Fans

I have always been so proud of us WHODATS. How few games were not sold out and blacked out in our history? A history which pales in success compared to every other team on that list. Yet we remained loyal. We are DEFINETELY the most optimistic of all fan bases. I've predicted so many Saints Championships it's ridiculous. Of course I predicted John Fourcade would lead us to a title and finally past Joe Montana and the 49ers. Did he make it to week 8 as the starting QB?
