Dog Days Are Over: Atlanta Falcons Among Ten Most Popular NFL Teams

New, 1 comment

According to a Harris Interactive poll, the Atlanta Falcons are the NFL's tenth most popular team.

As D. Led points out, three years ago the Falcons finished 28th in this same poll while mired in Michael Vick's dogfighting scandal. Even though the team washed its hands of Vick, dog jokes remained the go-to Falcons punchline for quite a while. Since the poll's 1998 inception, the Falcons had only once finished in the top half -- last year -- and four times made the league's bottom third.

Winninggiving, and clean living have changed all that.
