NFL Fan Bases.

the eagles are a little low in my opinion.

Giants ahead of them? No way.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

anyone interested, here is a very good article on what the eagles mean to philly.

of note, the year after the 3-13 season, season ticket sales INCREASED.

or how when jim mcmahon had a very bad game and was getting booed, oscenities etc, he was walking to the tunnel and gave the fans the finger -- so then everyone started cheering him and yelling "you da man".

yea everyone likes the pats... but were red sox nation. i didnt see any cars being tipped after the pats won the super bowl (and i was disappointed) and during the sox parade many schools got canceled because they knew everyone was going. sorry pats


I think the first superbowl parade for the Pats summed up that fanbase nicely with the overwhelming chant "Yankees suck!"

haha i was just thinking of that. any patriots-themed celebration in boston eventually deteriorates into the obligatory "yankees suck!" chant. good times, good times...

Now however, fan base seems to be predominantly So Cal gang banger -- witness the annual knifing in the parking lot after the Raiders come to town.


I know that we have a long way to go as a fan base but I think the fact that the stabbing only occur when the Raiders come to town is pretty telling about who the "gang bangers" root for...

The Steve Szaban article is interesting, but when you look at it closely the guy bases a lot of his opinions on fans he's happened to run into, isolated incidents (like the SD stabbing), various stereotypes, etc. Most football fans I run into are pretty reasonable people regardless of who they root for.

Although to be fair, you used to get the "Beat L.A." chant at Fenway, too.

Not bad Packers at #2. If I wanted season tickets I could get them for the year 2060. Hopefully, Brett Favre IV would be playing for them.

eh, for every one or two he got wrong, he nailed 5 right on the head. Maybe I'm biased as another East Coaster, but I agreed with most of these...

I was gonna disagree with you Mercer Boy and say, hey the Pirates and Pens were both winning in the early 90's.... then realized that was 10 years. Doh. Suddenly I need a beer.
Best... fantasy advice... EVER. :D
