    Lots more at the link, very interesting data. Basically, Cowboys and Steelers are the most common fans. If you are a Texans fan, you are mostly likely to have Cowboys, Saints, Steelers, Pats and Packers fans as friends on Facebook.

    Cool map, sucks that they had to use so many different colors that some look the same. Is that middle piece in Alaska full of Houston, SF, KC, Atlanta, or Buffalo fans? lol

    Tell me about it. One old friend of mine fan, a Cowboy fan and lifelong Houstonian no less, will not shut up about trashing the Texans, typical. He even saw the Texans in the Pro Bowl as fodder.

    It's comical to read it these days for obvious reasons. He gets pummeled with facts everytime he opens his mouth. :fans:

    I've got 4 out of 5, as well. The only one not covered is the Steelers.

    Does anyone "Like" other teams like division rivals just to follow what they are doing? Personally I don't but just curious if anyone does that.
