After 8 pages of this thread Ive come to the conclusion that there is no best sports town. Its too subjective. But there is an award that goes to biggest homer sports town. The fans that sip their hometown kool aid and think their teams/fans are the end all. That award goes to Philadelphia.



Ive been to Eagles games in Philly before. Many of the people at these games are NOT from the city of Philadelphia. Everybody in the oh so dangerous 700 level of the Vet was a whiteboy accountant ex-fratboy type from King of Prussia or Quakertown. They all get drunk off Keystone Light and play tough guy but we all know they are suburban pansys.

Lol could not have worded it better myself. The city of Philly is definitely anything but soft, but its those suburban tards that try so hard to be tough that end up being the face of the Eagles' fan base. Thats mostly what I see both in person and on TV.

I will say that although they have no class and I deplore how they behave, the "crazy" Raiders fans are no joke and will quickly get violent. I might not like either one, but the rowdy Raiders fans would easily whoop the sissy frat boy Eagles fans that I've seen. But then again, that's really matching up trust fund/private school kids with felons and gang members.

Not all Eagles fans of course, just most of the ones I have come across in person and seen on TV at the games. If you don't fit the description then you're not who I'm talking about.

If they're from KoP or Quakertown, they're not trust fund kids, trust me...

And you're not coming at me all douchey and over-defensive like I'd expect from one of them, so you're definitely in the clear.

FYI - A recent MSN sports article ranked Philly and KC as having the best football fans in the NFL. Being a Packers fan, I don't know if I totally buy that because the fans at Lambeau are about as revved as I have ever seen (along with Lakers fans at Staples, which is also a totally awsome experience). But I've never been to a game at either Philly or KC. So all I can say is that the fans must be pretty good both places (even if good means behaving badly.....). So good job Philly and KC. Rock on!

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Seattle as the worst sports town (atleast for the past year). The Mariners were last in the AL West (39 games back), the Seahawks went 4-12, the Washington Husky football team lost all their games (first time ever), and the Sonics moved to a city with about a third of Seattle metro's population, Oklahoma City. Top that!

As awesome as that is, it's shocking they'd pick us and KC over Packers and Steelers fans.
