I make this thread because I'm curious if other people have been at a game where you just cannot believe how the fans are acting.

Derek Anderson was not having the best of games today but he surely wasn't the only reason we weren't winning the game...

Yet, late in the game Kevin Shaffer gets absolutely owned and Derek Anderson suffered an MCL injury and was in clear pain, and the fans started to cheer and chant "Dorsey"

I cannot stand the douche bags that buy tickets and cheer when players get injured, most of the time it's the casual fan who doesn't know a damn thing and just sees a team losing and wants to blame it all on the QB.

“Mary Kay,” he told a writer who asked about it, “they don’t like me. That’s well known.” A writer told Anderson he hoped they would meet again. “Probably in the next life,” the quarterback said.

Thats horrible, he's a good guy and the fans treat him like ****, it makes me hate being a Browns fan more than just the ****** teams that we field year after year.

I think whats worse than that is when you can't get tickets for your team in ****** weather and you look at the stands during the game and only 50ish% of the ticketholders show up.

Their behavior at games is unexcusable. They completely dismiss the fact that children and families are in attendence as well and say the most obnoxious stuff.

What pisses me off more than anything is teams fans booing their own players. It's been happening all year with LSU and its ridiculous. What the **** do you expect with a freshman QB?

I also hate those douche bags that have probably never been to a football game selling tickets for 200 bucks over face value. They are the real pieces of ****.

Back in the Buccaneer creamsicle days, I remember there being fans that showed up to boo.

I remember when Favre and the pack came to town for a game (back in the NFC central era). Our "fans" were cheering on Favre. Trying to "light a fire under ownership" apparently.

This cleat chasing ***** was wearing a Chipper jersey and sitting two seats away from me. She jumped up and starting yelling crazily after every play CHIPPER made, didn't care about any other player. So I gave her the glare of death and that ended right there after the sixth. Ok, not really a bad fan, but not welcoming.

I like to think that all the Packers fans were angels before the Favre situation this offseason. I also think theyre the most loyal in the NFL. I like to compare them to Notre Dame. Very well traveled as well as selling out every game for the last like 20 years. Steelers have excellent fans as well, and the Pats fans are coming out of the woodwork the last couple years.

I disagree. I've lived in Philadelphia for 19 years and attended plenty of Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, and Flyers games from the age of five until today. The fans pride themselves on being vicious to opposing teams and fans. If a family of Cowboys fans stroll in there they can expect to be heckled. This, however, does not mean Eagles fans are assholes.

The fans demand a lot from their teams, yet they are some of the most loyal in the country. The fans packed the stands through the Eagles struggles, through the Phillies struggles, and through the Flyers hard times. They are loyal, they are passionate, they are loud, and intimidation is their fuel.

Would I recommend a family to buy seats in the nosebleeds with the drunks? Absolutely not. However, Philadelphia is a great place for sports and has some of the best fans in sports.

Everyone knows about the boos, everyone talks about the boos, but what about that loyalty and passion?

The worst fans are the ones with tickets and won't go to the game because their team is enduring a tough year. I would have loved to be in Cincinnati today, though it would have meant watching my team get the crap kicked out of them. There is the right way to support your team or show your frustration. The worst fans are the ones who abandon their team and do nothing. Those are the fans that leave a game at halftime because the score may be 21-3 or so. Philadelphia fans will crowd the stadium and not let up.

DeAngelo Williams can do that all he wants in Carolina, but you don't do that in other team's stadiums. I was actually about 50 rows directly back from that and our whole section cheered when it was knocked back. It's just like if you're at a baseball game and catch an opposing player's home run ball you throw it back.

Eagles fans have to pick up an NFL trivia test on the way into the stadium. When they leave they have to turn them in completed. I guess the results are favorable.

Philly fans are very knowledgeable but they take their passion excuse and use it when fighting other fans for wearing another teams jersey. I've lived in the Philly area for my whole life as well and I go to about half of the Phillies home games. Theres a difference between being passionate and being a complete scum bag. Dont get me wrong, the Philly fans are one of the most knowledgeable in the NFL but they are the most disrespectful as well. This thread is about the Best fans though and not even being a homer I have to say that that reputation belongs to Green Bay.

As are Phillies fans, like I. The Eagles fans top the list, or bottom it, depending on how you look at it as far as people you want to be around with an opposing team's gear on. I think you would be better suited with an American flag in France. In Philly, I've seen NY cars being destroyed just because they were from NY and cars from Florida flipped during the World Series. Also, Maple Leafs fan left in the middle of the street beaten down after responding to a Flyers fan's comment. Mind you, the Leafs won that game too. If we're talking fans as a whole then Philly has the worst behavior. Let's not forget about the batteries thrown at J.D. Drew, snowballs at Santa, and holding up Obama signs at the Flyers game where Palin dropped the puck.

I think unless the team is playing really, really bad like the dude's team above, you don't need to boo. You pay to watch your team and boo'ing them is only going to knock their confidence and give the opposition a boost as they know if they keep the pressure on the team/individual the boo'ing will just intensify.

Cleveland fans seem to be pushing for the "Asshat Fan Crown" that currently resides in Philly. They pulled the same **** with Couch, too. Boos are fine when they're based on performance, but this isn't the first case of injuries being cheered in Cleveland. Totally unacceptable.

Knowledge doesnt exclude douchbaggery
Exactly. There are way too many stories of total idiocy that come out of a Philly stadium from every sport. Defending the indefensible acts of some fans by calling them loyal, passionate, knowledgable, or anything other than sociopathic is foolishness.

Very well traveled as well as selling out every game for the last like 20 years. Steelers have excellent fans as well, and the Pats fans are coming out of the woodwork the last couple years.

Pats fans coming out of the woodwork are not Pats fans. Bandwagon jumping d-bags who probably haven't watched a game since Brady went down. Lots of sitting down, leaving early and a lack of noise make me think the Pats fans are spoiled at the very least, so I won't argue that they should be anywhere near the top of a best fans list.

Steelers would probably get my vote for best fans. Passionate without the horrific BS perpetrated in other cities. Green Bay is still up there at the top.

It's been one majority of a decade for me as a Lions fan(8 years aka the Millen era). 90s was some good football in a tough division(Favre/Vikings WRs/lowly Bears/Tampa near the end of the Central). 60s 70s and 80s are for old people/Bears fans living in the past (Da Bears) as far as I'm concerned. And yet the Lions are 6-10 against the Bears with two OT losses and a Mike Williams dropped pass in there too for a loss in the Millen era. Amazing how well we match up against the Bears under Millen.

Look to the future with a new GM. No more easy wins for the North. Restore the Roar LOL.

Lions' fans loyalty can't be questioned. Sold out for 7 years under Millen and only year 8 do we stop selling out.

I'd just like to point out a new type of bad fan that is emerging in today's NFL: The people in the good seats that are there just to be there. These people know relatively little about anything involving the game, or how to act at the game. If you sit in their section and actually act like a fan (see: make noise on defense, react to things on the field, etc.), they say "sit down", they randomly yell things like "GO (insert player here)!" when said player is standing on the sidelines, likely because that's one of the five players on the team whose name they know, and they make a half-hearted effort to make noise when the defense is in a third down situation, but otherwise, they do the "sit down" routine. Unfortunately, with the price of NFL tickets today, this type of fan probably isn't going to go away any time soon.

That's because you're a Packer fan. The Packers are actually owned by Green Bay, so they're not likely to get a new luxury palace fully equipped with a ton of suites and overpriced club seats any time soon. Instead, Packers fans get what a football stadium should be: row after row of diehard fans that are only there to cheer on their favorite team. Seeing the transformation from the RCA Dome (the loudest place on Earth when it wanted to be) to LOS...it would be like if the Packers moved from Lambeau to Jerry Jones's new stadium. I'm glad for the new stadium, since it kept the Colts in Indianapolis, I just wish the real fans could afford to buy up the tickets of the non fans and make it a loud, raucous environment which opposing teams don't look forward to dealing with again.

Reminds me of two years ago when I went to the TAMU-UT game in Austin and UT fans were there like it was social hour. Students werent even watching they were just hanging out and sipping their flasks. It was sad really.

No. You can't even make a case.

I think means on how packer fans act to other fans of the NFL such as Rival Teams. Not as Fans of there team in general. Because Packer fans can be very obnoxious..Sometimes when the packers win the fans will love to rub it in against a rival but when they lose to a rival they just cant handle the same type of abuse sort of..thats what im trying to get at. I mean I bet Packer Fans dont like Viking Fans that much either but Neither are Bad Fans to there team...They are both very loyal fans.

The Best Fans have to be Lions fans...If they can handle what they have gone through and still watch them they have some strength in being a fan.

I think it's like that with every team. No one takes kindly to trash talk after getting beat but yet everyone does it.

I want to say...........

"In the NFL, no fan base is any better/worse/smarter/dumber/whatever than any other fan base when everything is averaged out. Every fan base goes through phases, along with their respective organizations."

but I can't!

i want to punch the majority of Giants fans in my area in the face. Mainly the ones who bought Tyree jerseys and would debate with me that Bradshaw was better than Jacobs, Tyree better than Toomer, and that Boss was a top 5 TE in the league. I then would tell them that Tyree caught more balls from Jeff Feagles last year than he did Eli...

I see what you mean and I do know plenty of Packer fans who could definitely stand to be less of a douche-bag but don't you think that you being a fan of a rival team has a lot to do with your view of Packer fans? I think that the same applies to me when I look at Viking/Bears fans because I can't stand their teams, so I essentially have somewhat of a predetermined (I think that's how I should put it) dislike towards the person.

But I agree with you on Lions fans, as I think I would have jumped onto some bandwagon team at this point if I was in their shoes.

Damn straight, fans who don't know **** but still want to act like they know it all really bother me too. And for me the group that I really have come to despise is the hardcore (I mean really hardcore) Favre worshipers.

Jets fans are the absolute worst. On top of other things in the past, this weekend they were booing injured Denver players because their injuries were slowing down the game.
It was for good reason, but what do us Jet fans know. I think to generalize us Jet fans because of a bad few(Some morons have done some bad things like the scandal with the woman last year) is ******* idiotic. Same with any of the fans who dared cheer Pennington for getting hurt and for Clemens to get in the game.

But anyways....

http://www.gazette.com/sports/boo_44237___article.html/make_rutherford.html

When the Denver Broncos had a third player in three plays go down with an injury against the New York Jets, the Jets fans started to boo.

There weren’t many fans remaining — the stadium was about half-empty at the beginning of the second half — but receiver Brandon Marshall didn’t appreciate their reaction, which continued for every Denver player who needed an injury timeout in the second half.

“Our fans don’t do that and we expect the same, but you can’t control people,” Marshall said.
Marshall said the booing motivated the .

“If it wasn’t for the fans maybe the outcome would have been different,” Marshall said. “We thank the Jets fans for booing when our guys were down. We took it personal.”

Cornerback Dre Bly, who was the third player in a row to go down in the third quarter, admitted to some gamesmanship. He had a bruised shin, but figured Jets quarterback Brett Favre would run a no-huddle and go right at him if he stayed on the field.

“If I had to I could have gotten up,” Bly said. “Once I saw Brett was trying to hurry up and catch us off balance, I guess I pulled a vet move and stayed on the ground.”


I'm sure Jet fans understand when a player gets hurt or not(Boldin got absolute silence and cheers from the fans) but the Broncos at one point had THREE guys go down in A ROW and this was when Leon was killing them with a screen play. Seven altogether if I remember correctly, cmon now. Shanahan is just doing typical magic that keeps it coming. From beginning the freeze the kicker to the chop blocks he teaches to his lineman to his working of the refs to now this.....This guy will do anything for an advantage.

yea, alot are. especially the ones that talk so much thinking they know everything. sometimes I get angry at their stupidity, but I've learned to sit back and smile and only school them when they say something so dumb i literally "lol".

Benching Eli and drafting Dennis Dixon as our future starter was just one of the comments...

I never did. But are you so sure that a lot of them that were booing were doing it because they were thinking he was prolonging his injury? I guess I just don't think that a majority (for any team) would be that quick to bash for that specific reason.

See I think there's a difference between being ignorant and talking out your ass and straight up being a POS. I don't mind stupidity as much because there are so many **** tards I have to deal with on a daily basis that if I got pissed at everyone I'd be a serial killer

90% of jets fans this year weren't rooting for the Jets last year.

there are still some very good Jet fans that surprise me though

It got fishy once it was 3 times in a row and 7 times in a game. Its understandable regarding cramps but cmon it was getting sort of crazy because it only happens during the no huddle.

the week after the Super Bow, in modell's, some kid was bugging out because he couldn't find a Tyree jersey. I lol'ed.

I then cried when the worker said they sold out that week. I lost hope for humanity, all in the span of 5 minutes

I've been to about 25 Steeler games the last 5 years and honestly... the only fight I've ever seen is when I went last year with my mom, 2 Drunk Steeler fans got in a fight outside the stadium.

It was funny as hell though, this guy (145lbs soaking wet) spilled beer on this big guys wife (Probably about 240+lbs), he asked him to apologize. The Skinny guy said he doesn't apologize for spilling beer on whores... and the big guy just started beating the **** out of him.

Took I think 7 guys to rip him off the small guy.

I have to admit last year when we played the Browns McCown got hurt and I kind of rejoiced, it was pure reaction, not because I was glad because he got hurt, just happy that Culpepper was coming in. But Derek Anderson is better than both those QBs so I wouldnt have cheered if he got hurt. I actually like Anderson.
