i wonder how they calculate this? it looks pretty crude, like they only consider the "market size" to be the size of a team's home city, rather than considering any nuances like the size of the overall fanbase, or the number of teams in a city, or the local interest in football.

for example, do they factor Milwaukee into Green Bay's DMA?

Interesting point, I think GB would always be near the bottom even with others included, Madison or Milwaukee.

I wouldn't say its a 50/50 split, but I am sure the Bears cut into a share of the Milwaukee fan base. Even if its only 10% that would be pretty significant. I imagine the Vikings fan base probably bleeds into western WI as well, maybe not all the way to Madison though...

Green Bay, Milwaukee, and Madison are all in seperate DMA's. Milwaukee's rank is 35, Green Bay 70, and Madison 85. The Packers do get strong fan support from both of these other DMA's. I know Milwaukee always has really high ratings for Packers games in their market.

so then i guess they consider the Carolina Panthers DMA to be Charlotte, and ignore Raleigh, Greensboro, Winston Salem, Columbia, Charleston, etc.

People ask why the NFC East is so talked about in the media even if one team is good and the other three are bad. This is probably the reason.


NFC East

1. New York Giants
4. Philadelphia Eagles
5. Dallas Cowboys
9. Washington Redskins

all in the top 10. Pretty amazing.
