Seattle being sabatoged from within

  • So this is a cool write up on facebook using the stats of players favorite teams.

    http://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook- ... 8370823859

    Something pretty insane though is, if you scroll down to the bottom of the article, you will see the most likely friends of each team. If you root for the Hawks, you may also have friends that root for these teams:

    (in order)

    1. Dallas
    2. Pitts
    3. Green Bay
    4. Oakland
    5. NE


    REALLY?? I thought it was quite odd how the teams I feel Hawks fans hate the most, seem to befriend people who like these teams the most. Pretty cool and weird statistic.

    *Also, I am aware that these are some of the most bandwagoned teams out there, but it still shocked me that, in that order, it seems to also be a list of most hated teams by seahawks fans.

    **Side side note: SEA did not break the top 5 for any other teams friends. Small market.

    Arguably the 3 biggest bandwagon teams in the NFL. Kind of makes sense.

    The 3 most popular teams in NFL history, followed by another west coast team that was popular because of the color black, and then the winningest team of the past 15 years....nothing odd there.

    Doesn't the word "bandwagon" signify massive amounts of people that jump on during the good times? I'd say if you took this poll in 1965, 1975, 1985, 1995 and 2005 these would be the top teams during those years as well. Which would be the opposite of bandwagon.

    Now teams like NE and the Saints? That's bandwagon. 20 years ago no one gave a crap about those teams, wasn't until they starting winning that people jumped on the bandwagon.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

    The fact that our most hated teams our also some of our closest friends. The title is a sarcastic pun, but if you want me to change it I can. I thought the data was seahawks relevant enough.

    Out of all the things to talk about and discuss from this thread, you choose to nitpick how I used the word bandwagon?

    C'mon man! :lol:

    No worries, I was just confused with that word when you listed three of the most hardcore fan bases in the league. Carry on.

    Entire topic is about Seahawks fans data, and its moved to NFL? So should we start reporting all topics that mention another team within the same sentence as the hawks? Im obviously being facetious, but the nick picking is getting a tad ridiculous.

  • So we've had topic police, definition police and now spelling police in one thread (a cool thread in my opinion too).

    Nice. :roll:

  • You lost me at "Facebook."
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.

  • Being in the military, I work with people from all over the country. Sadly, this Facebook study proves what I already knew to be true. There are way too many Cowboys and Steelers fans. At least half have never lived in Texas or Pennsylvania. And worse yet, I'm friends with a bunch of them.

  • I have two friends that are diehard Broncos fans. I have two work-friends that are Rams fans (though one just converted to Seahawks fandom last month). One of my best friends is a Packers fan. I've known a few Raiders fans. Good friend in high school that I haven't talked to since 1999 was a diehard Steelers fan. So I guess I kind of support that survey of teams. I am surprised that Denver didn't make the list though. There are an unusually high number of Seattle transplants in Denver and vice-versa.

  • The article got me curious about the total number of teams fan "likes" on Facebook, but it didn't list the numbers. So if anyone is interested, I did the research myself. Obviously not everyone uses Facebook, but this is a pretty good indicator of the popularity rankings of teams.

    1. DAL - 5,368,803
    2. PIT - 4,839,880
    3. NE - 4,010,613
    4. GB - 3,455,906
    5. NO - 2,931,739
    6. CHI - 2,695,688
    7. NYG - 2,635,958
    8. PHI - 2,020,708
    9. OAK - 1,883,558
    10. SF - 1,815,345
    11. IND - 1,673,643
    12. DEN - 1,516,775
    13. NYJ - 1,494,875
    14. BAL - 1,470,248
    15. MIN - 1,417,508
    16. MIA - 1,313,483
    17. SD - 1,211,135
    18. WAS - 1,100,232
    19. ATL - 1,010,071
    20. SEA - 857,452
    21. DET - 851,946
    22. HOU - 850,363
    23. KC - 661,040
    24. CIN - 639,663
    25. CLE - 628,770
    26. CAR - 566,095
    27. TB - 542,933
    28. ARI - 542,427
    29. TEN - 522,826
    30. BUF - 430,088

  • Awesome! In the last map of the study where the Hawks are still on there, we picked up a county in the south part of North Dakota! Do we have any players from there?

    Coming back to the topic...which was what??? I actually don't understand how it relates to the OP and I fail to see the sarcasm in it. How are we being "sabotaged from within"? Are our tickets being bought up by other team's fans and thus infiltrating our stadium to root for the other team?

    It can be said that EVERY fan has friends that root for other teams. And in no case are there NFCW teams in the top 5 of those friends of fans of any one NFCW team.

    I'll turn off my red and blue lights and leave without writing a ticket now. (I think we need a "police" emoticon... :D)
