Study: Colts have 6th-most loyal fans

There’s no doubt that the Indianapolis Colts had one of the most loyal fan bases when Peyton Manning was leading them to the playoffs on a regular basis and to two Super Bowl appearances.

That same fan base is currently ranked sixth in the league, according to a study done by two Emory University students.

I’m actually surprised the Colts are ranked that high because “fans” started dropping their season tickets once Manning and the team parted ways. I recall fans talking about leaving the Colts and jumping back on the Indiana Pacers’ bandwagon as they pushed the Miami Heat to six games in the Eastern Conference semifinals during the 2012 playoffs.
