    Packers no longer America's team

    The Green Bay Packers, who have been America's team for the last four seasons, surrendered that title in this year's Harris Poll of National Football League fans.

    America's favorite pro football team is the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers, but the Packers remained near the top, finishing fourth this year.

    Harris Interactive conducted a poll Sept. 7-13 of 2,747 adult respondents, 1,306 of whom said they followed pro football. The latter group was asked to name their two favorite NFL teams. Harris has conducted the same poll every year since 1998.

    The Steelers, who beat Seattle in last season's Super Bowl, were chosen by 16% of the respondents, the most for any team. Next were the Dallas Cowboys (15%), followed by the Indianapolis Colts (13%), Packers (11%), New England Patriots (9%) and Chicago Bears (9%).

    Named by the fewest respondents were the Jacksonville Jaguars (1%) and New Orleans Saints (2%).

    Rumor has it the Jags have hired their own Harris to conduct the recount

    and the new numbers look like a dead heat between the Jags, the Dolphins and the Bucs, with the Packers still finishing 4th WTF??? :wink:

    Since 2002, the Packers have finished first or tied for first. Until this season, the only two teams to finish first in the Harris poll were the Packers and the Cowboys

    It just proves how many "fair weather fans" there really are out there. Suddenly the Steelers are "America's Team?"
    Thats the bandwagon jumpers is all that is. I don't put any stock into it.

    Bruce,

    Maybe they used one of those "rigged" Diebold electronic voting machines to do the count!

    Don't let that Bandwagon hit you in the a$$ when you jump off or on. That's what my Dad said to a neighbor many. many years ago when he was ranting about the Packers being losers. A loyal fan sticks with his/her team through the good, the bad, and the ugly. (They should make a movie with that title.)

    Of 2747 contacted only 1306 followed pro football. People located where? How were they contacted, landline? In a country of hundreds of millions.

    I'm not excited by polls. I've seen too many slanted ones expecially during political season.

    I think the Saints are "America's Team" for this year.

    Rightly so.

    I don't care if the Packers are "America's Team". They're my team and they always have been.

    If they had that pole in Wisconsin, the Packers would be #1,2,3 and 4!

    How about a down DECADE or two...like the 70's and 80's.

    I was there during the great Green Bay Packer Ice Age.

    And why is that?
    Were the Giants and Jets America's teams after 9-11?

    If you don't follow the NFL then you can't possibly have a favorite team. Half of the measly 2,700 polled probably never watch a game all season.

    Wrong. Like you were wrong about the Ahmad Carroll interference call.

    Didn't mention TT. Wasn't referring to him.

    Just saying that some people here were Packer fans through 3 decades of losing, so be careful what you wish for, that's all.

    But now that you mention it..I hope TT doesn't bring us a decade of losing.

    But I wouldn't rule it out...yet.
