Although I live in Wisconsin, I don't really have a "favorite team," although Mrs. Rayman might disagree with me. I'm a football fan, not a team fan.  According to research by Nielsen Scarborough, only 16 percent of adults living in Green Bay, Wisconsin, are NOT fans of the team, that according to an ESPN article. That means everybody else in the metro area has either watched, attended and/or listened to the Packers' games in the past year.

The Forbes rankings were based on the hometown crowd reach, social media reach based on the area's population and three years' worth of Nielsen television ratings, stadium capacity percentage and merchandise sales via NFLShop.com. The study said Packers fans scored the highest marks in every category except for TV rankings (second) and merchandise (seventh). See if your favorite team made the Top Ten List.
