All teams and cities think their fans are best.
Realistically though, what cities have the most loyal and most dedicated fans?
I figured I would give this topic a shot, with a few rules:
- I'm considering major metropolitan areas as a single city (e.g. the Bay Area includes San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose teams).
- I'm also only counting cities with a minimum of two teams from the big four professional sports, so my many apologies to the Green Bay faithful.
- This list is not trying to rank cities based on their success, but rather a city's fan devotion and loyalty to its home teams.
- This list is primarily composed of American teams, but I'll throw Toronto in for kicks.
Read my disclaimer:
I do not mean this as any disrespect to any city or a particular team. I realize every team has a number of diehard fans that may be offended.
Remember, I do not mean this as a dig at a city in particular.
With all potential hard feelings aside, let us have a look.
