kronicfeld: That is such a piss-poor article. The first entry on Green Bay makes no sense whatsoever. The entry on Houston is even worse. Seattle and Jacksonville make some sense. 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.

People don't root for the Cowboys because they're bandwagon fans. They root for the 'Boys because in a cynical world, in a game of lies, the Cowboys stand up for what they believe in.
And what they believe in is bestiality, which makes that accomplishment all the more impressive.

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.

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

He's just saying they're Jesus-like.

Don't be a foothole.

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 fell olike that article sucked living brain cells out through my ears. The entire article was rubbish that had no meaning nor theme. 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

As Red Smith once said of a bad book, "this shows that the English language can be a gun the author didn't know was loaded."

Or to put it another way, you know the bit about infinite monkeys on infinite typewriters eventually putting out the works of Shakespeare? This article - three monkeys, 10 minutes.

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.

CavalierEternal: Steelers.

FACT: Since 2006, the Steelers have won two Super Bowls and three AFC Championships.

Their rankings in attendance since 2006.

2006: 26th
2007: 27th
2008: 28th
2009: 25th
2010: 23rd
2011: 22nd
2012: 25th

At least Baltimore fans, for as much as I hate them and consider them hypocritical sh*tbags, go out and support their team.

Do you wonder why? I'll tell you why: at 65,050, they have the 7th smallest capacity in the NFL. The stadium is packed on gameday, even for a dogshiatgame against the Browns who haven't won at Heinz is a decade. Speaking of which, have you seen the stadium in Cleveland when the Steelers play there? It's a 9th home game for them.

Support their team, indeed.

The_Sponge: FTFA:

The team's homefield advantage stems from pre-sets that have nothing to do with the fans: geography as it relates to other NFL cities, climate, a recent rise in hard-hitting defensive backs, and engineering that brought a synthetic loudness to CenturyLink Field.

Climate?  Get back to me when Seattle has harsh winters like Green Bay, Buffalo, and Denver.

Synthetic loudness?  Whatever you say, pal.

Maybe he meant the constant farking rain? And in other news, 94 degrees is almost unbearable when it's 60% humid outside and you don't have AC. Monday farking sucked.

BKITU: Link would have included Raiders fans, but they're all clearing the dinner trays right now, and laundry duty still waits.

Yeah, I can't believe they got left off. A buddy of mine from back in the San Diego days was tailgating at the Q when he noticed a trickle of liquid running from underneath his truck right through the circle of chairs where everyone was sitting. He follows the trickle back to some asshole Raider Nation dickbag taking a piss on one of his tires. It's one thing to do that stuff when no one is there. It's another thing entirely when you can see 6 Charger fans right the fark there.

Gecko Gingrich: You say that because because you're an acoustical engineer and you've studied the design of The Link, you because or because you just *know* that you have the ability to yell louder than any other fan of any of the other NFL teams?

ArkAngel: We have the smallest market for any NFL team, yet Favre and Rodgers jerseys were always top sellers. The estimated wait time for someone trying to get season tickets is almost a thousand years


That's why Packers are on this list. Their fans cannot stop reminding everyone about the small-market, fan-owned, Norman Rockwellness of the whole experience. WE KNOW because their fans never shut up about it.

I must first chide subby for sending us into a slideshow unwarned, but other than that, this is basically the greatest off-season football article ever written I agree with it just about 90%.
