(CBS Sports) – The Seattle Seahawks might have the loudest fans in the NFL, but they don’t have the best fans, that honor belongs to the Green Bay Packers — at least according to a study done by Forbes.

The study ranked the top-10 NFL fan bases using five different criteria, including: hometown reach, television audience rank, stadium attendance, social media rank and merchandise rank.

The social media rank was partly based on the fact that Green Bay has more Twitter followers (703,000) than there are people in the actual city of Green Bay (Just over 300,000). The television ranking was based on Nielsen ratings over the past three years.

The ‘hometown reach’ metric is ‘defined by Nielsen Scarborough as a percentage of the metropolitan area population that watched, attended, and/or listened to a game in the last year.’ The Packers ranked No. 1 in that, social media and stadium attendance.
