The List of 10 Cities With Best Football Fans That Will Piss Off Denver


Last September, the folks from WalletHub released a study tasked with determining the best U.S. sports cities.

And much to our chagrin, Denver placed second behind (yeesh) Boston, Massachusetts.

Now, just in time for Super Bowl 50, WalletHub has set out in search of the cities with the best football fans — and this time around, Denver did even worse.

Moreover, some of the other cities on the roster (several of which are college towns that have no NFL franchise) seem like ultra-debatable choices — especially one (you'll know it when you see it) that left us absolutely slack-jawed.

Count down the photo-illustrated list below, featuring WalletHub data and a complete methodology. To visit the original post, click here.
