    Not sure what their rankings criteria is, but overall, we are 3rd from my research.

    #1 is Dallas
    #2 is Pittsburgh
    #3 is Green Bay

    Factoring in good and bad seasons, these are the top 3 no matter what.
    I can't accept having us any lower than 3rd. I won't read their bullschit.

    According to the article, the rankings are "scientific." They take the local and national TV markets, users on the team website, and times the team is mentioned on the internet for an entire year and add them all up to get the ranks. TV is based on total viewers, not average viewers, more national TV = higher rankings. Explains why the Seahawks and Rams are so low. Well, that and they suck.

    Here is an excerpt from the article

    We are 5th, in 2009, calculated in large part by how many national broadcasted games the team was.

    Those are HUGE points. Like the article says, if the game had high ratings, the teams benefited from it. It does NOT shows fanbase. It shows audience and current marketeability.

    NM, read the article which makes my previous statement irrelevant.

    Honestly it really don't matter about the popularity. Hell, every game will be sold out and most Packer fans are hardcore and bleed green and gold and thats all that matters. I think that itself draws in alot of fans too.

    Last year I went to the Boys' website to check out the monstrosity that Jones built. Doesn't mean I think the Boys are popular, does it?

    Good point, JBlood.

    Your right that it doesn't distinguish.
    People watch games just to watch a game even if they aren't fans of either team.
