In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the biggest Patriots fanbase located outside New England is indeed located in the Raleigh-Durham area.
15-20 years ago though, the area and the state in general was Redskins and to a lesser extent, Cowboys territory. It still is today to some extent, but not like it was before 1995.
Funny thing though, I think most of us on the Hurricanes board are Panther fans, but of course we don't make-up the majority of the population.
There are a ton of Pats fans now, but still not on par with what I've seen out of the other big fanbases in the area. I don't think there's a single Pats fan on the Canes board, there are at least 4-5 Steelers fans if not more, most of us live in Wake or Durham county.
