Still have a big fan base and following in AZ, but now that they have the Cards and have been to a Super Bowl it doesn't surprise me.

There aren't nearly as many Cards fans here as you'd think. I live in Tucson and I rarely see anyone one wearing their gear.

When Favre was playing for the Packers you could always count on a big piece of Mississippi to pull for the Packers. They regularly were given Packer game broadcasts every week.

They have Lucas County, where I live in NW Ohio, as a Steelers county.

I would disagree with that, although it's divided.

I'd break it down to about 40% Browns fans, 20% Lions fans, 20% Steelers fans, and 20% other teams.

It took quite awhile for the Cards fans to really latch on down here. It was pretty much divided between Steeler, Cowboy and Bronco fans before. But when the Cards got Warner and went to the Superbowl, their fan base has grown quite a bit. I've been to about 20 different sports bars in the valley and they're always packed with Cardinal fans now. Not sure about Tucson or other areas but Metro Phoenix the Cardinals are a pretty big draw.

I like Raiders having one county in SF dominating NoCal...probably Humboldt County home of Marijuana cultivating. I can see the tie in.

Yeah. Here in Tucson I see a lot more Cowboy fans than Cardinal fans. My roommate is a Cards fan. And hes the only true Cards fan Ive met in Arizona. I've lived here on and off for 30 yrs. And hes been a Cards fan since before they were here.

I'd say it goes something like this as far as what I see people wearing and decals and whatnot:

1.Cowboys
2.Broncos
3.Raiders
4.9ers
5.Packers
6.Bears
7.Steelers

After that, its just a toss up.

interesting note: see all the Cowboy fans in Va the Carolinas? That all stems from the racist Redskins of the 70's. The local black population took to the Redskins arch-rival, Dallas, who also happened to be really, really good.

Thanks. I was wondering about that. It definitely looked odd to me, but that makes sense.

Similar to how when Steve Young was playing most of Utah was 49ers territory.

I remember when they had this a couple of years ago and NE Florida had a few counties of Broncos fans.

Yeah, here in Tucson, the most popular teams I see based on gear probably rank Raiders, Cowboys, and Broncos. I don't exactly know why, but it seems like 90% of the Hispanic population loves either the Cowboys or Raiders.

Yeah yeah, I know.

2 more things...What's with the large chunk of Nevada being Cowboys fans?

And interestingly, the Cardinals are the only team to both be the favorite in their entire state, and also not occupy a single county outside of their home state. This is because barely enough people in Arizona like them, but most certainly nobody else in the country could even begin to give a crap about the Cards.
