SteelerNation as export

De rigueur reporting to go with the start of the NFL season; from the AP: NFL season jumpstarts the economy

Note the sentence from the other end of Cleveburgh.... "especially when the rival Pittsburgh Steelers are in town".

I'm thinking of trying to calculate the economic impact SteelerNation exports to other regions of the country.   I'm not sure anyone has ever come up with a number for that.

Perhaps a good place to start making such a calculation is with teams that force fans to buy tickets to other games in order to purchase access to the day the Steelers come to town.
