We explored some mysteries in fan loyalty in a post in September, but we never could figure out why there were so many Cowboys fans in the Washington area. Sure enough, the winner of the DirectTV contest on Ultimate Displaced Fans turned out to be a Dallas supporter in Redskins territory, Ron Lawrence of Chesapeake, Va.

A reader, Linden Houston, sent his analysis of the DirecTV numbers on displaced fans:

Iíve looked through the list and the reasons are fairly simple. In most cases, itís because the areas listed is the largest local media market without a team or retained loyalty for the team previously being there. Iíll try to explain it for each team.


13. Houston Texans Ė Fresno-Visalia, CA

Already explained: David Carr.
