Why The Patriots Fans Are #3 On Facebook
Trailing the #2 Steelers by roughly 600k Likes, the New England Patriots Fans have risen fast in popularity over the last 15 years. Having appeared in 7 Super Bowls, 6 in just 16 years (37.5%) is the reason why.
The fact that the last two appearances (’07 & 2011) have occurred since Facebook arrived in ’04 has kept them in the fan’s eye, even though they were both losses. Winning 3 in 4 years is reminiscent of the Cowboys early 1990’s run, but since it happened so recently, it has catapulted the team into contention for “The Most Popular” category.
Difficulties with injuries hurt their effort last year, as it did several contenders, but as long as Tom Brady continues his excellence we can expect to see the Pats in the playoffs on a regular basis. That is exactly what builds a teams fan base. Winning.
The past couple of years have taken their toll in terms of player personnel issues, but it appears that this years personnel changes could right the ship and help the Pats since they are also getting back several starters from the injured reserve list.
