Wow, how did we Raider fans avoid this list?  Nevermind the reputation; when they suck we totally vote with our feet.

/And as someone said in an article from a year ago "Packer fans are just Raider fans with permits for their guns".

What really bothers me about Green Bay is their myth of righteousness. It's the same reason I was rooting for the Miami over San Antonio during the NBA Finals.

And then I stopped reading.

CavalierEternal: Adolf Oliver Nipples: CavalierEternal: So the reason that Pittsburgh can't fill one of the smallest stadiums in the NFL is because tickets are too expensive?

That's not at all what I said, but actually, the answer is yes. The Steelers have sold out every game since 1972, which means that they don't have a fan problem but instead they have a scalping problem, something virtually every successful sports team has to contend with. I have never paid face value for a ticket, and I probably never will. Some people aren't willing to pay a 100% markup to sit in nosebleed for any reason.

So, if the tickets are all sold and yet the attendance is so "low", it's because someone is eating tickets. Oh, I'm sure there are the usual times when someone has to eat them because something unavoidable came up and they can't unload them in time, but for numbers that large it's scalpers not caring about the 50 tickets he has to eat because he made it all back and more on the markup on the other hundred he sold. The Rooneys don't have to give away thousands of tickets to charity to get sellouts like the Jags, and they never will.

If you look at the Overall category, assuming that you're using ESPN's numbers, their away game attendance goes up over 100% and they're 12th. The Steelers draw fans and the fans do show up.

Reasonable enough answer. Kudos to you, sir, for a well thought out rebuttal.


I have my moments, but it's football so fark you. :)

The author randomly chose 5 teams and called their fans names with no discernable theme or reasoning. It was as if they grabbed the first semi literate political troll from our own politics tab and told him to get busy writing something useless and pointless but divisive and inflamatory about football fans. Im essence to become ESPN-like for a blog


It was like five slides of lorem ipsum filler. Still not sure what the author's point was. Maybe I don't follow football closely enough.
 
2013-07-04 12:30:25 AM
I've been on the Steelers season ticket list for 10 years or so, and probably have at least another 20-30 to go.  The scalping issue is the only thing that makes sense, because the tickets simply aren't there to buy.

I'm skeptical if that Jacksonville picture was from a real game - preseason maybe?  If that's a regular season game, I am floored.

Di Atribe: Those teams were not chosen randomly. :)


If a team can claim a sellout crowd for every single regular and post season game in the home stadium for the history of the franchise, that team should not be considered when talking about which team has the worst fan base.
 
2013-07-04 12:50:13 AM
That list is garbage.

A real list.

1. Dallas Cowboys: A whole lot of bandwagon fans that know little about football. They love to talk up their team when it is winning and then they disappear into the woodwork when their team sucks.

2. N.E. Patriots: The Boston fan base in general is known throughout the country for constantly bragging about how much better their teams are than anyone else's, regardless of how their teams are actually doing. Keep sucking Tom Brady's jockstrap. (All the people pointing fingers at Green Bay fans for their holier than thou attitude haven't hung out with many Packer fans. They don't have an attitude or a chip on their shoulder like the Patsy fans do.)

3. Pittsburgh Steelers: Similar to the Patriots fan base, these fans are constant loudmouths and braggarts, No matter where you are in the country, you can go into a sports bar on a football Sunday and find a Steeler fan yelling over everyone else in the bar and getting in someone's face.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Even in recent seasons when they have been competitive, they can't get anywhere near selling out a home game. (The Jaguars get a pass cause they haven't come close to being competitive in years.)

5. Philadelphia Eagles: Unlike the Patriot and Steeler fans, at least the Eagle fans have no problem hating on their team when they suck. But Philly fans still win for the most obnoxious and abusive fan base.

I really don't understand this. When the team is losing or mediocre, what do you want the fans to do? Stick around and keep talking their team up? Run their mouth some more so you can complain about how they never shut up? When my team's losing, I don't want to talk about it. I never understood this as an insult.

Also, like I said above, if you stick with a team for 17 years with no SB wins, through Chan Gailey & Dave Campo, Quincy Carter & Drew Henson, you're not a bandwagon fan any more. You're just not.

The idea is there are a lot of Cowboy fans who are only fans when the team is winning. A by product of being the most well known team and attracting a lot of casual fans who know little about football.

You misunderstand. Jacksonville is arguably the only team on that list that actually belongs there. The rest are "discussion creators", or, if you prefer, trolling. They knew it would generate outrage (and therefore clicks), and sure enough, it worked like a charm.

Hm. I think it's weird to judge a fanbase by their casual fans. Every team is probably gonna have some (well not JAX), but honestly, they probably only claim a team because all of their friends like football, so they figure they'd better pick a team if they want to be in the conversation. To that I say, who farking cares what they say? They don't know shiat about football, so why should we pay attention to their uninformed opinions?

I mean, I don't judge Yankees fans because of their casual fans. I judge them by their legion faithful who never pass up an opportunity to remind you how many WS trophies they have, even when they're wallowing at 4th in the division.

Holy shiat brisket I am so there.

I love the friendly in state rivalry. There's no need for hatred at all. I'll pull for the Texans any time they're not playing the Cowboys.


Well, I wish I could be a bigger man and root for the Cowboys also but the mid 90's put such a jealousy/hate thing in me that just can't be ignored. Plus, in state rivalry. But I'll root for your happiness and keep it civil with other rational fans. So cheers!

2013-07-04 01:33:13 AM
I don't know why they even bother to list them out.  I'd say almost every NFL "hardcore" fanbase is pretty insufferable:

-Packer fans; I've been to Lambeau and had a blast but most of those fans have been fans for 50+ years.  For every one of them, there's ten Packers fans who have never stepped foot in Wisconsin, grew up in a suburban McMansion, had mom and dad pay their way through undergrad and law school but like to remind you every 5 minutes about how blue collar their team is.  The former (who I've tailgated with) is awesome, the latter is the product of excellent marketing.
-Raven fans: My brother-in-law has had season tickets since they moved to Baltimore and tells me firsthand how hard it used to be to get rid of tickets he couldn't use for the first few years.  In fact, they had trouble selling out home games during their second season until local businesses bought out the tickets. Then they won the Super Bowl and all was forgotten.  BTW, every Raven fan I know insists I made up the aforementioned story about their second season in Baltimore.
-Steeler fans: Love to tell you about how well they travel; don't mention they actually traveled to those places to find jobs.  The blue collar bandwagon comments about the Packers apply here too.  Again this is another case where the originals are not so bad, and the follow-ons are the most irritating people on earth.
-Redskin fans: TFA nails it with them (I'm a Redskins fan for the record).  RFK in the 80s and 90s was absolutely electric.  FedEx Field, at 90k seats, is full of opposing fans and drunken sloths who may or may not know there is a football game going on.  The obsession with Dallas annoys me too.  There's been some incredible games between the two over the years and I definitely get amped up when the Redskins play the Cowboys, but lets keep it in context people.  Also the "sellout streak," while once a source of pride has been a work of fiction for about 10 years.
-Bear fans: They could go 4-12 next year and a Bears fan will tell me about how their record isn't really indicative of the team because they were within 7 points in the 2nd half of 8 of those 12 losses.  I never understood why people hated the Redskins so much until I spent a considerable amount of time with Bears' fans (I live in Chicago for the record).  Also the Bears play in one of the largest NFL markets, but for some reason chose to make New Soldier Field the smallest NFL stadium when they built it ~10 years ago.
-Seahawk fans: Retired #12 in honor of their fans in 1984 and have been blacked out on local TV a countless number of times since then for failing to sell out their games.  Considering the symbolic nature of the 12th man (i.e.: they're part of the team and its successes), and how much they pride the monicker, they should consider showing up like the other 11 guys
-Cowboys fans: Another distinction here.  I've been to Dallas quite a bit for work and fans there are actually pretty reasonable and dislike Jerrah as much as the rest of us.  Cowboy fans everywhere else are another story.  One of them talked trash with me once by bringing up that time that they beat the Redskins in the Super Bowl.  Think about that for a second.  To his credit, he left me with no response in that argument.

The rest of the NFL is a mish-mosh of:
Bitter drunks (Jets, Bills, Eagles, Browns, Vikings, Chiefs)
Fanbases that don't exist (Bucs, Rams, Jaguars)
Teams whose recent success masks their longer history of apathy (Saints, Patriots, Colts)
The violent (49ers, Raiders)
Fans easily distracted by nice weather [honestly I don't blame them, i'd be doing the same thing] (Cardinals, Dolphins, Chargers)
Fanbases that haven't had any prolonged success to get excited about (Lions, Panthers, Bengals, Titans, also the Texans / Falcons to a lesser extent)

And that leaves the Giants and Broncos.
 Honestly if you've ever referred to the collective group of fans that cheer for the same team as you as a 'NATION' then you are part of the problem.
 
2013-07-04 01:35:20 AM
Fan street credibility. nobody can define it or put a number on it. but y'all know who has it and who doesn't and each one sets the bar so his or her ass is over that bar. Everybody here is "A True Fan" and not "A Worthless Bandwagoner".  It sounds for all the world like "Bandwagoner" is the big bad wolf from a fairey tale.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: You have that problem in Texas? I thought that was exclusively a northeast thing. Yankee fans make you and me look like amateurs.


Hells yes, they're everywhere. I know one NYY fan who is actually from the northeast (who is actually quite nice). The rest of 'em jumped on that Yankee Doodle Bandwagon since the Rangers sucked for so very long and the next closest team is the Asstros. But like someone said above, sticking with your team when they're sorry only makes it so much sweeter when they start winning. I distrust anyone in a Yankees hat down here (except for my one friend, of course). They earn my harsh judgment without reservation.

That I would have to disagree on. Especially here in Northeast Ohio, there are a metric f*ckton of bandwagon Steelers fans, most of whom aren't from Pennsylvania and don't have any connection to the region, and who only root for the Steelers because it's easier to cheer for the next closest team than the home team when the home team has the extended stretch of failure that the Browns have had.

The two cities are a short 2 hour drive apart. They are most definately in the same region. The economic background and history of both cities (thus their local fan bases are very alike) are extremely similar as well. As far as Pittsburgh being the next closest city, Detroit is closer to Cleveland.

I really disagree with the guy on his Texans argument. Him saying people from Houston should be Titans fans makes as much sense as people from Cleveland being Ravens fans. Thats such a stupid reason to call a fan base a bad one.

Way to project your insecurities on other fans. Packers fans just don't get that. We had awesome years, a long drought, and a return to prominence. But if you want to hate, go ahead. That is you prerogative. I'm only glad that my ad block deprived you of something. Lord knows I Xed out of that when I realized it was  a slideshow.

kronicfeld: ArkAngel: estimated wait time for someone trying to get season tickets is almost a thousand years

I like the Packers just fine, but that figure is total BS. The Skins boast of their generationally-long waitlist, but every single offseason they are cold-calling people trying to unload season tickets by the barrel.


I am currently number 85,602 on the waiting list for Green Bay Packer season tickets.

As an owner, I read TFA and thought, 'you mad, bro?'
the ownership thing really grinds some people's gears, lol guess it's just because they can never own their team......

Whenever people start talking about the relative worth of sport fan bases, it pisses me off.  Quite frankly, I think it's ridiculous to look at any fan base as any group of people either better or worse than another group of fans.  People choose to root for a particular team for a particular reason.  If that bothers you, you have an issue.

Me, I have lived nearly my entire life in California; the vast majority of that in Northern California.  I am a Cowboys fan.  I have been since 1981 or so.  The reason (since so many people think they just HAVE to know why a Californian would root for a Texas team) is that my grandfather was a Cowboys fan.  He and my father had virtually nothing in common, so I only saw my grandfather once or twice a year, even though he lived about 15 miles away.  But I did see him every Thanksgiving.  Since I didn't have the same indifference towards my grandfather that my dad had for him, I became a Cowboys fan.  It gave us a bond we would not have otherwise had, and frankly, I had no other idea how to connect to the man.

That was well over thirty years ago.  My grandfather is still alive, but too senile to discuss football with.  But I have never wavered from being a Cowboys fan.  I loved them in the early 80's when they were good.  I loved them in the mid to late 80's when they were terrible.  I loved them in the early to mid 90's when they were awesome.  And I have loved them ever since when they have been very, very mediocre.  And I'll be a fan until the day I die.  But not such a fan that I would ever begrudge another fan for rooting for another team, even if that team isn't the closest in proximity to where they live.

Seriously, if you ever meet a fan of another team and decide it's your duty to question their allegiance, seek help.

It's tongue-in-cheek humor.  Most of the stories I posted in my post above are things that I've heard/learned from friends/family who happen to cheer for those teams (and that's why I was so comfortable ripping on my own favorite team).

If you picked up the Cowboys and bonded with your grandfather over it, that's cool.  If that defines you as a person, then that's unfortunate.

The fact is that every fan base has a subset of incredibly stupid people whose entire self-worth is wrapped up in the external perception of their fanbase's 'nation' and how hardcore they are.

balki1867: It's tongue-in-cheek humor.


Most of the time, yes it is.  But some people take it way, way too seriously.  To the point of challenging fights, which never ceases to amaze or frustrate me.

balki1867: If you picked up the Cowboys and bonded with your grandfather over it, that's cool.


Yes, I think it is too.  Although part of me wishes he had been a fan of a team that would have caused less drama.  He was from Oklahoma, a child of the Dust Bowl, and later a big fan of Tom Landry.  I can't account for it completely.

Front-running bandwagon fans for a team that hasn't won a Super Bowl in 17 years? How does that work? How about contrarian fans. That's more like it.

Also, I would trade Philly fans for Houston in that list. I would also have a very different write-up for Green Bay, but I think they belong there.


IT's one of the things that makes being a Giants fan pretty sweet: when you win, you're not just winning over a division, you're winning over some of the worst fans in existence.

Front-running, hey-its-still-the-mid-90's Cowboys fans addled by Troy Aikman on the stick, Mean, vicious angry Philly fans who have nothing to crow about but act like they do, and Washington for all the reasons laid out in this article. As a Giants fan, winning means these guys are losing. And THAT is sweet. The fact that they do it with a quarterback who looks like he should be wishing Ellie May and John Boy good night in ADR while our wide reciever salsa dances is just icing. :-)

Totally agree on Packers, Jags, and Skins. Packers (and Cubs [They're the same group of obnoxious white people]) fans are farking terrible. One of my favorite moments as a sports fan was sending them home in the first round a few years back in Arizona. A truly great day.

Definitely disagree on Hawks and Texans.

I agree that FedEx field is an utterly miserable experience, but how are 45,000 people (1/3 to 1/2 of the game-day crowd is usually not Redskins fans) "the fan base"? How can the front-running, bandwagonning Cowboys fans from places like Bethesda, Connecticut, and Syracuse not be on this list? It boggles the mind.

DC area Cowboy fans exist because of the Marshall era of ownership. To this day many black folks here despise the Washington Snyders.


the majority of the dc metro area african americans love the redskins. A good portion of the hate for the skins comes from them being horrible in the 60's (for the older fans) and the media overplaying them.  I lived there for decades and rarely heard any fan of any color say there hate had anything to do with the Marshall era.

Did the author place the skins at #1 to try to push his agenda for a name change.

horrible article. A horrible fan base is one that doesn't support the team when they go through a long period of losing or even worse when they don't support the team when they are winning but claim to be fans.

As a Redskins fan I of course hate the Cowboys, Giants and Eagles and I will like wise call their fans bandwagon fans to be snarky but all 3 of those teams have a strong loyal fan base. Philly fans could learn some manners but that might go for the entire city.

btw Bobby Mitchell pretty much won the majority of those fans back.  So your by your account there is nothing between the years of Marshall owning the team and Snyder?  Mr. Cooke would like to have some well chosen words with you. (if he was still alive)

Even Bears fans, as historic and bitter the rivalry is at least try to acknowledge the Packers history, fanbase and legacy, as much as a lot of my fellow Packer fans acknowledge the Bears in the same way, even if we don't usually like to admit it.  Vikings fans are those fans that are obsessed with their more successful rivals, to the point where a good portion of them spend more time hating their rivals than cheering on their own team. Lions fans (in the past 2-3 years anyway) are like that kid down the street who just started getting good but ends up throwing a temper tantrum whenever he doesn't get his way.


Yeah, i'm a life long Packers fan and I'm perfectly happy to cheer for the Bears as long as them winning doesn't hurt the Packers chances of getting into the post-season, the better both teams are doing the better the games between them are.

Can we call out the packer fans who walk around saying,"I'm an nfl team owner." No you are farking not. You own stock in a publicly traded company. Jerry jones is an NFL owner. At the end of the game he can walk right down to the players locked room and do whatever the hell he wants in there. I'd love to see an "owner" of the packers try walking in after a game.

CavalierEternal: Adolf Oliver Nipples: balki1867: -Steeler fans: Love to tell you about how well they travel; don't mention they actually traveled to those places to find jobs.

I tell people that all the time whenever they try to claim that Steeler fans are bandwagon. No, they're not (well, some are), they're just spread to the four winds because the mills all closed up 30-40 years ago. It's not news.

That I would have to disagree on. Especially here in Northeast Ohio, there are a metric f*ckton of bandwagon Steelers fans, most of whom aren't from Pennsylvania and don't have any connection to the region, and who only root for the Steelers because it's easier to cheer for the next closest team than the home team when the home team has the extended stretch of failure that the Browns have had.


Boy, do I have a video for you...

It's why the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys have such tremendous footholes in America.
