Why The Steelers Fans Are #2 On Facebook
Why The Steelers Fans Are #2 On Facebook has an easy answer.
The Pittsburgh Steelers Fans trail only the Cowboys in popularity on Facebook, and appear to be making headway to take over the ”Americas Team” moniker that the “Boys” fans have been claiming. The “Boys” haven’t appeared in a Super Bowl for almost 20 years, while the Steelers have appeared in 4, including the loss to those very Cowboys in the 1995 contest.
Having a better SB Win % (6 wins, the most in the NFL) hasn’t tipped the scale in Pittsburgh’s favor. But, more telling as to why the Steelers Fans have gained ground on the Dallas fans is the fact that they have appeared in three Super Bowls since Facebook’s inaugural year in 2004.
Winning in ’05 & ’08 perhaps alleviated the disappointment of the 2010 loss somewhat, and the study recently posted on NFL Trash Talk showed that even when a team gets to the SB and loses, like Pittsburgh did in ’10, it still increases fan participation.
The upside for the Pittsburgh Steelers is the recent success! If the team can continue to reach the playoffs and contend for the ultimate game, then they just might take over as Facebook’s most popular team in the NFL.
With just 1.2 Million Facebook likes behind that Dallas team, it could be done this year, IF a Super Bowl win is the end result! However, I think the deciding factor may be that the Steelers need a great group of Cheerleaders to tip the scales in their favor!
