Abstract

Geographers have studied pattern in sports for over three decades, largely beginning with John Rooney's 1969 pioneering article Up from the mines and out from the prairies : some geographical implications of football in the United States. Rooney argued at the time, that fan loyalties are problably among the strongest of human attachments, and their regional boundaries are well documented and functionally organized via major sports radio and television networks. Since that time, media technology and professional sports in general have been dramatically transformed, which, in turn, has likely had an impact on the regional boundaries of the fan base of professional teams. - (IfL)
