Any cartographic fine-tuning of borders that you would suggest?  What truths does this map obscure?

As a huge football fan, this map is very interesting to me. It shows how different populations are in different parts of the country due to where fans are located.

I like how this map shows regionaly were most fans of a certain team are.  However one thing it fails to take into account are fans of a certain team that live in another region.  Like I live in Rhode Isalnd so based on the map i would be a Patriots fan, however I am  49ers fan, and I know i am not the only fan of a team not living in that teams region.
