  • NFL FAN SUPPORT: RANKING THE TEAMS OVER THE LAST DECADE

         Business First, a Buffalo-based business journal, released
    the results of a study that gauged NFL Fan Support for the last
    ten years.  Support factors (high average attendance, high percent
    of capacity, low attendance fluctuation) accounted for two-thirds
    of a team's score; difficulty factors (low winning percentage, a
    large number of seats per 100,000 population, high ticket cost per
    $10,000, chilly December temperature) accounted for one-third of a
    team's score.  Denver's top score of 100 is the benchmark for the
    other teams' ratings.  ATTEND FLUX = Difference between best/worst
    annual attendance totals.  WIN % = Team's winning poercentage from
    '85-94.  SEATS/100K = Stadium seats per every 100,000 metro
    residents.  $/10K = Ratio of '94 average ticket price to every
    $10K of local per capita income.  DEC. TEMP = The 30-year average
    high temperature for December.
