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.


It isn't. I have been on the season ticket waiting list for about 18 years. I have moved up about 50 spots, when not taking into account the additional seats added at Lambeau. I am around 19000 now.

<i>But what have you done lately? Today's Green Bay fans stand on the shoulders of their fathers. The Packers' vaunted homefield advantage has waned over the last decade-especially in the postseason. Somehow, the fans let a young Mike Vick-on a Saturday night- own the joint during the 2003 Wild Card playoffs. They let Randy Moss and Daunte Culpepper smoke the Pack during the '05 playoffs. The Packers blew the 2008 NFC Championship at home in a picturesque frozen tundra game that defecated all over the iconography. When Aaron Rodgers and the Pack won the Super Bowl in '11, the entire run was made on the road. The following season, the defending champs host a divisional playoff-they lose in Lambeau. </i>

Woolwine: Eh, most of the time I hear people saying the Packers having a bad fanbase they either don't know what they're talking about, or they're Vikings or even Lions fans. 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.


As a Packer fan in Minnesota, I can confirm this.

alwaysjaded: The Italian Farker: Not sure where this clown is coming from. The Texans have sold out every home game since they have been around. Also rated one of the top tailgating stadiums. I have NEVER been a Cowgirl fan in my entire 53 years.

I know. That article was all kinds of farking dumb. We're not supposed to root for the Texans cause they're not the Oilers and cause we're defaulted to root for the Cowboys? Get farked.

He should have been here when the Oilers left. My dad took me to the last game (I was about 11). Bud Adams had to be escorted out of the dome cause Houstonians were lined up at every exit waiting to throw things at him. And losing the Oilers hurt much worse when they went to the Super Bowl as the Titans not much longer after that. And I'll lick clean every chemical refinery in Pasadena and LaPorte before I root for the Cowboys (their friendly fans are alright in my book though).

I was a hardcore Oiler fan till they left and became a Texan fan the day they announced it on the news. Even during the Carr/Capers era. *shudder*


On the one hand he applauds Ohio Fans+ the Bills and Lions fans for supporting terrible teams, then he says no real football fan in Houston would support the texans because they are a terrible team

FTA:
Seattle was a baseball and hoops town in the '90s and today is a soccer and college football town


Huh?  College football was bigger in Seattle in the 90's than it is now, with the Huskies winning a share of the national championship and whatnot.

And I'm pretty sure that the Seahawks are a bigger draw than the Sounders.

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.


Lots of truth to that. We see it down here in Cincinnati too. The 90's came, people got pissed at the team, and a lot of them said "screw it, I'm going to root for their biggest most successful rival", which they've been lording over Bengals fans ever since. I don't think I hate Steelers fans so much as I hate this particular group of Steelers fans, because their biggest drive as a fan seems only to be making Bengals fans as miserable as possible.

I used to think these were the worst fans in sports... until we hosted the Cowboys last year. They were terrible.

/At least Steelers fans have a reason to brag these days. Cowboys fans? Not so much.
//And that's coming from a Bengals fan.

Pretty sure that happens with all fan bases. I'm going to California next week. I'll wear my Cowboys cap. We'll see if it starts any conversations. If it does, I bet we talk about football. Don't get me wrong, some of my favorite people are Packers fans. Aaron Rodgers is quite likely the most likable player in the NFL right now. Wisconsin is Texas North in a lot of ways (don't fight it, cheeseheads). But this is the kind of comment that makes fans of the other 31 knock GB down a few notches in their minds:

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......

Let's not get insane here. It's going to take the end of days for Cleveland to make it back - I can't even conceive what would happen if the Browns and Jets make it in the same year.

DRTFA, but it basically seems to be this:

This team's fanbase sucks because there are too many of them! This team's fanbase sucks because there aren't enough of them! This team's fanbase sucks because their team was founded too recently! This team's fanbase sucks because their success was too long ago and they act like they're still great! This team's fanbase sucks because their success is too recent and they didn't act like their team was great before!

As mediocre and/or crappy as Dallas has been in the last 15 or so years, it's pretty asinine to call the fanbase outside of Dallas bandwagon at this point. They've earned their spot as a fan, hell, anyone that remained a fan through the early 00s earned their spot as a true fan. Same goes for the people that started  rooting for the team in the 70s and stuck by them even through the late 80s.

Bullshiat. The real reason people are annoyed with Boston fans is because we have had a hell of a run.
Seven championships in 10 years? Loads and loads of playoff wins? Breaking the Red Sox streak? It has been a hell of a decade for Boston.

Delude yourself if you want, but if you talk to a real Boston fan (and not some shiathead on the internet), you'll see we are pretty decent and knowledgeable. The reason you hate us in general is that we have had a hell of a run, and while it is slowing down, Boston teams are still showing up in the playoffs.

Patriots fans are hated because 15 years ago there weren't any.  The team was about to move to St. Louis because of a lack of fan support.  Then the team started winning, and the fans returned, bragging about the team being the best ever and how they were the best fans ever.  Then we found out the Patriots had been cheating for the entire seven year run of their success, and the fans went nuts.  They denied any cheating ever happened, they claimed it was a new rule, they tried saying everyone did it, they tried changing the subject by accusing other teams of things, and they finished by saying they didn't cheat, but even if they had, it wouldn't helped.  Now the Patriots haven't won a title since they stopped cheating, but their fans are still arrogant about their team and brag about their success while cheating, while demanding that no one ever speak of their cheating again.

On the bright side, this run will end, and the Patriots and their fans will fade into the obscurity they deserve.

Yes, Boston sports have been on a hell of a run. What's annoying about (some) Boston sports fans is that they still seem to think they have it pretty bad. You're not long suffering sports fans any more!

TheJoe03: Eagles fans are the most disgusting, garbage fanbase of all time in any sport.


On Monday, December 5, 1988 I attended the game between the Bears and the Rams at Anaheim Stadium.  It was Jim Harbaugh's first start as a Bear (what ever happened to that guy, anyway?) and it didn't go well for the Monsters; they dropped it 23-3.  The most vivid memory I have, though, were the two leather-lunged fans several rows behind me.  By the time the end of the game rolled around, I had decided that there was something seriously wrong with both of them.  They exposed themselves over four quarters of football as two of the worst human beings ever to spend energy screaming invective at sports teams I've ever encountered, and I've spent a lot of time at stadiums.  The thing that I couldn't figure out was that they spent their time hurling unimaginative, repetitive, scatological abuse at everything: both teams, the other fans around them, the stadium and its amenities - everything.  You can already see the punch line here coming: the game ended, everyone got up to file out, and I spotted these two assclowns right away: Eagles jerseys.

In Marshawn Lynch's first career playoff game on January 8, 2011 against the New Orleans Saints, The home field crowd's reaction to his 4th quarter touchdown run was so strong that it was recorded as seismic activity at a monitoring station 100 yards from the stadium.

I've been on the field before a Sounders game as the Starting 11 are being announced, and the noise is for real. I have been a part of that same noise during a Seahawks game and if you can hear yourself, then it's halftime.

The asshole who wrote this article should be tied to the 12th man flag and run up the flagpole during a game, with no earplugs in.

// That article pissed me off
/// Can't you tell

The stadium makes it sound louder.  It's built that way.  This isn't really a question.  You can say that if other teams don't like it, then they should build their own stadiums like that.

Granted, but if the noise was not real, then explain the Beastquake to me, and I quote:

In Marshawn Lynch's first career playoff game on January 8, 2011 against the New Orleans Saints, The home field crowd's reaction to his 4th quarter touchdown run was so strong that it was recorded as seismic activity at a monitoring station 100 yards from the stadium. The fourth-quarter run proved to be the game winner, as three minutes later the game ended with the Seahawks defeating the Saints, 41-36, capping one of the biggest upsets in NFL playoff history.

// The noise is real
/// The earth does not shake from cheering because an engineer designed it that way.

Which is more likely?  That people in Seattle are somehow louder than any other fanbase, or that a stadium's unique construction results in a measurably loud phenomenon?


Okay, let's have the discussion:

First, read this:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CenturyLink_Field

Second, tell me if there is anything on that page right there regarding its construction (material or design) that would increase the noise synthetically, or even cause the existing noise to be amplified.

When you don't find anything, pick Option #1.

Problem here in Tampa is 3 fold.
1. The team has been losing and losing badly, no effort and less desire
2. A small "true Buccaneer Fan base" too many people from too many places up North. Bucs fans are always lost in the crowd at Raymond James.
3  It's Sunday morning in late November  and the weather will be sunny and warm. Do you want to A) go see a mid pack football team that still has no chance for the playoffs OR B) drive west across the bridges and relax watching bikini babes while sipping a cold beer. ?

/ See you at the beach my friends.

That article is terrible.  Mostly contrarian for the sake of being contrarian.

My hometown team has to rank in the bottom five (Tampa Bay)

Shut up, homer.

50000, 65000, 80000...the same number of people make the same amount of sound regardless of where they're congregated. Also, familiarize yourself with how amphitheaters and acoustic guitars work.

I'm a Jacksonville fan, and even I think they should move out.  To me, the team is like an old dog with cancer that needs to be put out of its misery.  Sure, we love the dog and we had some good times, but it is time to let go.
