This is the anatomy of the NFL fan base across America.
If you're not a Cowboy or Bronco fan, you may find this a bit unsettling.
I have never heard the expression "Cowboy Nation" or "Bronco Nation."
But I have heard and witnessed RAIDER NATION.
Let's look at the Raider Nation.
According to this map, the Raiders don't even have a fan base in their hometown of Oakland…and that makes no sense. The Raider Nation is LOUD and ALIVE and LOYAL.
Ask visiting teams which fans they most dread. Ask visiting fans which stadium they most dread.
You don't have to be popular to have an impact, you just have to have FIRE. If this map were based on passion, Raider fans would cover this map -- silver and black.
