bandwagon fans aren't particular to any team, they are a type of fan.

that said, the bandwagon fans seem to have picked the Saints, of late, to be "their team."

Permanent bandwagon is an oxymoron...
GEEZ!

Most annoying - Steeler fans, because they're EVERYWHERE!!!

Most bandwagon - Patroits, Steelers, Heat and now probably Mavs!!

The bandwagon that bugs me the most is the Michael Vick bandwagon....it seems hood rats and people that look up to thugs are all of a sudden Eagles fans because of Vick.

I don't think you can call Cowboys fans bandwagon at this point...2009 was the first playoff game they won in what? 13 years? And then they lost in the 2nd round. Sure, many of them probably were bandwagon fans from their Super Bowl days in the early 90s, but if they stayed fans through the late 90s and the 2000s, I don't think they can be called bandwagon fans anymore.

I guess everyone has different interpretations of bandwagon fan. I always thought bandwagon was a not so serious fan that hopped on when things were going great for a particular team but otherwise didn't care too much.
