Rollen Fredrick Stewart (born February 23, 1944), also known as Rock'n Rollen and Rainbow Man, is a man who was a fixture in American sports culture best known for wearing a rainbow-colored afro-style wig and, later, holding up signs reading "John 3:16" at stadium sporting events around the United States and overseas in the 1970s and 1980s.[1] He is serving three life sentences in a California prison after being convicted of multiple kidnapping charges after a 1992 incident.

Holy shiat.

What bible verse did Hernandez reportedly choose to be his final statement? None other than John 3:16

Actually it said მƖ:Ɛ nʜoႱ.

Mirrors were tricky for him.

Certainly like in the Top 5 of most famous/infamous U.S. sports fans.
Others I would put in there:
Steve Bartman
Robin Ficker (famous D.C. basketball heckler)

Who fills this out... I'm sure there are two more who are pretty nationally known that I am forgetting.

There are two more guys that I am thinking of.. but I think they are probably more Chicago-centric and not as nationally remembered/known:

* That fan who attacked Randy Myers in the 90s, who Myers beat up on the mound.
* The guy at the Bears game who jumped to catch a ball down into the tunnel about 10-15 feet.   This one maybe gets a bit more national cred, as I think it was on MNF, and it was maybe used in the pregame intro for awhile?   http://www.nfl.com/videos/chicago-bears/09000d5d82061834/The-fan-th​at-​flew

That is interesting, I assume he was the first guy to do that "big head" thing behind the basket?   If he was the "originator", he probably deserves a Top 5-10 spot.

Not exactly in the fan category, but Gary Glitter is a fixture of every stadium because his one hit became a universal stadium anthem. Last I heard he was serving life or possibly even staring down a death sentence for pedophilia charges in Viet Nam.

I can't go to a stadium anymore and hear that song without thinking about that.

I don't know if he was the first but I've seen tons of images of him doing that at basketball games.  That he makes that same face while holding it up is what does it for me.

Found a pretty good list to find some more in....
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/758510-30-most-infamous-fans-in-sp​o​rts-history

As it has a bunch that we've discussed so far(Rainbow Man at #30, Ficker at #7, Jeffrey Maier #2, and Bartman #1).   IMO Rainbow Man was ranked too low.  And I'm thinking about individual notable fans here, not famous "sections/groups" like the Hogettes.  And not thinking about already famous people who are fans (like Elton John at #6).

I could see possibly throwing in Jenn Sterger (#4), even though she became a personality later on, the original "discovery" was just as a fan in the crowd.

Gunter Parche (#3) is another notable one, but, I was keeping this U.S. based anyway, as I'm sure there are plenty of "infamous" soccer fans overseas and such, or Cricket fans in India maybe, but, just keeping it U.S. here.

I actually think their ordering of the ones we've brought up, taking out the internationals, famous and groups isn't bad....
1. Bartman
2. Maier
3. Sterger
4. Ficker
5. Edwin Anzalone ("Fireman Ed" at Jets games)
6. Parachuting Guy
7. Rainbow Wig Man

8. Big Head guy
9. Bears jumping for the ball guy

I dont get what makes Jenn Sterger infamous? Because she has tits in a tight shirt? Or because she flaunted them at every camera she could find? What makes that infamous? What makes that famous? Go to any sporting event and you'll easily find hundreds of young women with big tits in tight shirts. Most of them would probably be happy to shake them for you if you have a camera too. So, what is the big deal about her? I dont get it. Seriously; not trolling or being Studman. I just ront get what makes her infamous or even famous. She's just another dime a dozen attention whore.

No, that was Katherine Webb.

Fair enough about Musberger. But it still doesnt explain why that article decided she was an "infamous fan." There's nothing infamous about shaking your tits for a camera.

Yes, she parlayed that into a very minor "sports journalism" career that resulted in a drunk hick QB doped up on opiates sending her unsolicited dick picks. But that was after her time as a supposedly "infamous fan."
