49ers fans rank as the best in the NFC West according to study

Jul 11, 2015 at 10:15 AM--


Mike Lewis and Manish Tripathi at Emory Sports Marketing Analytics released their list of the best fans in the NFL. They define "best" as "the most avid, engaged, passionate and supportive fans."

The Dallas Cowboys took the top spot. Interesting considering that San Francisco 49ers fans, who came in 10th overall, took over AT&T Stadium in Dallas during week one last season, essentially making it feel like a home game for the visiting 49ers.

NFL.com states that the study relied heavily on market outcomes like attendance, prices, and revenues, so take it for what it is worth. Obviously a fan base that spends larger amounts of money on their team are likely to get a higher ranking.

The 49ers did rank at the top among NFC West teams. The next closest division team was the Arizona Cardinals. The rival Seattle Sehawks, who have one of the loudest home stadiums in the NFL, ranked dead last among NFC West teams.

Below is a list of where the NFC West teams ranked in the study.

San Francisco 49ers (10th)
Arizona Cardinals (19th)
St. Louis Rams (23rd)
Seattle Seahawks (26th)

It is based on the massive amount of data produced by the analytics giant, Pro Football Focus. The two join forces to rank the NFL's best rosters. Where did the San Francisco 49ers fall within the ranking? In case you glanced past the title of this article, the Bay Area squad came in at No. 3, with just the Baltimore Ravens (No. 1) and New Orleans Saints

Despite spending some time as division foes before the NFL realigned the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints aren't exactly rivals. A few more games like the Week 14 nail-biter last season could change that. Whoever is running the 49ers' social media account might want to ignite something, judging by an impressively clever tweet on Thursday. The post was meant to remind fans to wear masks during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens the 2020 NFL season and sports in general. And that individual did so while taking a shot at the Saints. Be a saint. Grab a face mask.

Armstead spoke with Sactown Magazine and is featured on the cover of its July/August issue. The publication posted the following quote from Armstead via Instagram (h/t to Alex Didion of NBC Sports Bay Area). "If you don't want me speaking out against racism and social
