Steelers Nation is definitely passionate, but it apparently doesn’t support its team financially the way other top NFL fan bases do.

That was the conclusion of Emory University’s 2018 “NFL Fan and Brand Report,” a study geared toward quantitatively analyzing which teams have the league’s best fan bases.

The Steelers do fairly well overall, coming in at No. 5. That ranking is unchanged from last year and puts them in elite company with the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots*, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants, which slot into the top four slots in the rankings.

But as in past years, the team continues to lag behind its peers in “fan equity,” one of three categories used in the study to create an average on which the overall rankings are based.

The Steelers place 16th in that category, which “looks at home revenues relative to expected revenue based on team performance and market characteristics.”

sorry I don't buy much NFL stuff because of players like L. Bell, Kaepernick and so on with a lot of players forgetting who is paying for the Stadium they play in and who is making their multi million dollar contracts a reality.

Mine either. My last trip to Pittsburgh I probably spent upwards of a grand on merchandise. I busted out a ton of OT leading up to that game just so I could go hog wild and spend a bunch of money on gear.
