I think Dallas, Green Bay, Pittsburgh fans all travel very well, no matter whose stadium they play in.

Yep, those are the ones. As a Pack fan, watching every game, I can hear those "Go Pack Go" chants at their away games. Steeler fans are really a strong presence, always, Cowboys I'm not as convinced.

The Steelers typically take over Cleveland. It's pretty funny. Now that there's more hype and positivity about the Browns, I imagine there will be less black and gold in the stands.

I always remember a lot of green and gold in the stands at Soldier Field, Ford Field/Pontiac Silverdome, and the Metrodome for Packer division games.

For the Panthers I've got two fan bases that come to mind, neither from this past year but I'll share anyway.

Anytime the Steelers come to town, their fans make up at least 35% of the crowd, usually more. While they play in separate conferences, they do play each other every preseason. Half of Charlotte and nearby Raleigh are former Western PA residents so it's not uncommon to see Steelers shirts and car decals in both cities, and it's usually an easy ticket for those fans to secure. I'm a Hurricanes fan in the NHL and the Penguins fans like to wear their Steelers jerseys to PNC Arena in Raleigh, probably because their Sidney Crosby jerseys haven't arrived in the mail yet. I've even seen them whenever the Canes are playing other teams

The other was 2012 when the defending champion Giants came to Charlotte. This was a Thursday night game so a lot of people were taking a 3 day weekend. At the time the Panthers were struggling and it was being rumored that Ron Riveria was going to get fired. The Giants were not a lot better at that time but they completely man-handled the Panthers that night. Like with Pittsburgh, a good chunk of NY has moved to NC since the 90's and they bring their fan alligences with them. I don't remember the ratio but I do remember seeing a ton of Giants jerseys in the stadium that night, and they were about 85% of the crowd at the end.

Other teams like the Patriots/Redskins/Eagles/Cowboys/Packers/Bears/Bills also have large fan clubs here but the Steelers and Giants are the ones that I've noticed tend to be more noticeable than the Panthers fans.
