    I honestly have only known one Dallas fan and that was back in Ohio, 20 years ago. In Indy you see some Bears fans, Steelers fans, but I never see any Cowboys fans. They (the Cowboys) must be very popular in other areas of the country.

      Yeah, this is a national poll. The Cowboys simply dominate the south. Texas/Arkansas/Oklahoma/New Mexico are Cowboys country. The Texans are only slowly making a dent in the area.

      In Indy specifically, I have a brother-in-law who has lived here since 1987 -- and he's a huge Cowboys fan. I also work with one.

        Here's a good map, although it's not scientific because the participants are self-selected. But it does a good job of showing the geographic distribution of fans across the country:

        EDIT: THIS MAP IS NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE SCIENTIFIC HARRIS POLL. IT'S A SEPARATE STUDY ALTOGETHER

          So how do you know who those pockets of green down in Mississippi and Arkansas belong to?

            I can't tell if I'm getting credit for being a Colts, Raven or a 49ers fan.

              Out in Phoenix, it wasn't uncommon to see just as much if not more Cowboys gear than Cardinals gear while I lived out there. I left during their Super Bowl year, so I don't know how much that's changed. Out here in SE Oklahoma, I've seen quite a few Saints fans in this region.

                Hard to believe Seattle is second to last and ranks below Buffalo, Cleveland, Cincinnati and Detroit. Seattle is the #13 market in the US and the only other teams in that part of the country are Oakland, Denver and San Francisco. In market size, Detroit is 11, Cleveland is 16, St, Louis is 21, Charlotte 27, Cincinnati is 34, Buffalo is 49 and those teams are perennial losers. The Hawks have had a couple of rough seasons but prior to that, won the NFC West 4 years in a row and made it to the Super Bowl in 05.

                Seattle should cover Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana and parts of California, Nevada and Utah.

                    Much of that is sparsely populated (in comparison to the metropolises in other parts of the country). Also, they don't have any star players, and I would guess that they have virtually ZERO presence outside their natural area, unlike the "nation" teams like Dallas, Pittsburgh, Green Bay, and increasingly the Colts.

                      Those are definitely ugly uniforms. I liked the blue, white & silver much better.

                        The fact they can't beat the LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR might have something to do with it...

                          I dunno, I like these:



                          The old ones look a little cheap:



                          Now, these ARE ugly:

                            Okay, it looks stupid on #90, but I think it's his fat sweaty ass that hurts the ensemble.

                              I can't see your second picture Jim so I'm not sure what you think looks 'cheap'. These were the Seahawks uniforms & colors I liked;
