Seattle Seahawks Are the NFL’s Fourth Least-Popular Team WTF?

Published on September 21, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Well i sure would like to know who the hell is judging or really how they are rating teams because none of these dumb asses have obviously never seen the 12th Man or been to Seattle?

There is no perfect way to measure the popularity of NFL teams. But media-research firm Nielsen’s Sports Media Exposure index may be about as close to perfect as we’ve got right now. And what it has to say about the Seahawks probably won’t come as a surprise to Seattle fans, but it probably won’t make them feel any better about their team either.

Using a ranking system based on each team’s local and national TV rankings, how often they’re mentioned on the internet and how many visitors they attract to their official websites, Nielsen figures the Seahawks as the NFL’s fourth least-popular team, ahead of only the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the only team that sucks harder in the NFC West, the St. Louis Rams.

Nielsen’s rankings have a pretty sizable flaw: they take the total number of national viewers rather than the average. So that means that the Dallas Cowboys, who were featured in six national contests last year, get a huge boost in the standings because of the 117 million people who watched their games.

But any NFL fan knows that, despite its failings, Nielsen’s study looks pretty right on. There are teams that travel, that will always field a big viewership no matter who they’re playing, and there are teams that don’t. Because of its short life as a franchise, its lack of sustained success and a remote location relative to the rest of the country, the Seahawks have been, and will remain, one of the latter teams.
