    • Average annual stadium attendance percentage for 2006-present, according to ESPN, weighed in part by the team’s record over that period.

    • Average Fan Cost Index for 2006-2010, according to Team Marketing Report, a leading sports marketing firm. The Fan Cost Index represents the total cost of four average-price tickets, two small draft beers, four small soft drinks, four regular-size hot dogs, parking for one car, two game programs, and two adult-size adjustable caps. This number was then measured against the average per capita income for each metropolitan area for 2006-2009 (the most recent year available) according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis

    • Tailgating rank for each city, according to the National Tailgating Index, compiled by an “alliance of tailgating experts” and commissioned by KVH Industries and DirecTv in 2007

    It's surprising how many team underfill their attendance capacity.

    I'm surprised that the Eagles aren't higher. Wife and I are on the waiting list for season tickets and are something like 10,000th on the list. My Cardinals are 15th. Considering the shithole they played in from 1988 to 2003, now having a stadium that is sold out week after week is a huge accomplishment. The other thing to look at, that this survey doesn't tough on, is team success. The Saints being near the bottom is an anomaly but most of the teams in the bottom half have been struggling. The Raiders bring up the rear on this list but I'll be willing to bet there is no team with a more rabid fan base than the Raidiz. Most fans who brings up the base are bandwagon jumpers.

    I can't believe the Raiders are last in this category.

    I would have guessed Green Bay and Philly would be very high, but figured Pittsburgh would also.

    It's hard to quantify this stuff. Interesting analysis, though.

    I can. The fans they do get are pretty dedicated but when you can't sell out any games during the season it will put you on the low end of that list. In fact I can't remember the last time there was a Raider home game on TV here in the bay area. You have to sell out 72 hours before game time to prevent the blackout and the Raiders never do.

    Interesting. I look at the crowd shots and the fans seem rabid and really into it. Never noticed the empty seats. Of course, they don't like to show those on TV do they?

    The Philly thing baffles me because they sell season standing room only tickets.

    Yeah. They scored pretty good but I figured they'd be at the top. I'm watching them now.

    The Detroit Lions.


    I present myself as exhibit "A".


    Seriously. How many other teams would STILL be able to sell out ANY home games if they offered up as bad of a product that they have put forth over the last 10 years?

    Not only is Pittsburgh's attendance high - this town turns into a ghost town when ever the Steelers are playing. Nearly everyone is either in front of a TV at home or in a bar watching the game if they're not at the stadium live and in person. :)
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
