When it comes to unabashed profanity, no ones comes to close (ok, maybe 3 or 4) to Pittsburgh Steelers fans on social media, according to Proofpoint Nexgate.

Steelers fans sit atop their list of the 5 most profane:

1. Pittsburgh Steelers

2. Baltimore Ravens

3. New England Patriots

4. Detroit Lions

5. Cincinnati Bengals

Per the website: ‘The runaway leader in the Profanity category is the Pittsburgh Steelers, with inappropriate comments representing more than 6.1% of all comments. The nearest competitor in the Profanity category was their division rival Baltimore Ravens, with inappropriate comments representing 1.6% of all comments. Playoff success was not a guarantee against profane comments, as the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots ranked third in this category… and this was even before “Deflate-gate”. After the Deflate-gate story broke on January 19, the Patriots remained in third place by percentage, but the total number of profane comments (and of all their comments) surged to a level higher than any other team, with an absolute count of inappropriate comments 1.5 times that of the Steelers.’

And the least profane fans (wusses)?

1. Carolina Panthers

2. Denver Broncos

3. Seattle Seahawks

4. Indianapolis Colts

5. Green Bay Packers
