In the United States, football is by far the most prominent and popular sport. Every Sunday (and some Saturdays) from September to January, most Americans wake up with excitement and eagerness. Watching NFL games and rooting for a favorite team is part of American tradition. On average, NFL games tend to get 18 million viewers and the big games are consistently the most watched broadcasts every year. The next most popular league in America, the NBA, only gets around 1.8 million viewers per game. Considering how important football is to America, FanWide has decided to create its own ranking of the top 10 NFL franchises. Using FanWide’s unique data, this top 10 list includes the amount of Fan Clubs each team has around the nation. FanWide has evaluated all 32 NFL teams across both the AFC and the NFC. The top 10 teams have been successful in recent seasons as well as throughout history. They all have their fair share of Lombardi Trophies and are all considered “NFL Elites” relative to the rest of the league. In addition, all 10 NFL teams are big market teams with large and loyal fan bases. Due to their consistent prowess, every football player growing up wants to play for these 10 teams. These teams are considered the tip of the top and have succeeded for decades on and off the field.
As FanWide’s search for the Top Football Fan Club continues, many strong candidates from the Cowboys have come to our attention and show strong signs of taking home the crown. One of these is the Southern California Dallas Cowboys Fan Club (SCDCFC) led by Robert Morales. SCDCFC hosts game watch parties all across Southern California and is so large that they even sell merchandise for their club. With such a large group of fans, they have even been recognized by Cowboys Experience as their #1 fan club.
The NFL’s Salute to Service games where hosted last week, where teams honored past and present veterans. Many games featured current military members presenting their colors at halftime or before the game. The Indianapolis Colts invited families of fallen soldiers to attend and walk on the field before the game.
Thanksgiving Break is upon us once again which means college students will soon be flocking home to eat all the food in their parent’s houses and sleep in until the early afternoon. Your freedom diminishes before their eyes as you are stuck doing chores and being criticized by family members you only see twice a year.
The house is full of cousins, grandparents, and nosy aunts that are all trying to get in your business. All you want is to watch the football game in peace. With FanWide, you can get away from your family and watch the game with other fans.
Today marks the end of an era for the Dallas Cowboys with not only the release of quarterback Tony Romo, but also his retirement from the NFL. The news ushers in a new legacy for the Cowboys with the team’s focus being on the 23 year old Dak Prescott.
It isn’t the end for Romo though, you’ll still be able to catch him on CBS for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of the 2017 NFL season he will be taking over for Phil Simms and will be broadcasting alongside Jim Nantz.
There is a long history of retired NFL players in the broadcast booth. Romo joins the likes of Chris Collinsworth, Frank Gifford, Don Meredith and many more as announcers.
