I've been a Dallas Cowboys fan since I was about 8 years old. I've stuck with them through the good times and the bad. With that being said, I have to admit that the Cowboys probably have more "bandwagon fans" than any other team. In my travels around the country over the years I've never been to any other city outside of Texas that I didn't see people wearing Cowboy's apparel. I'm sure that Jerry Jones is very happy about that...lol.

Same here - when Verne Lunquist said (of Jackie Smith), "Bless his heart, he's gotta be the sickest man in America!" after he dropped Staubach's pass in the end zone in SB13, I screamed, "But I'm the sickest kid in America!!"

The better question would be what team has the most life-long fans.

I do see the looks he gets now though when out in public with his Saints hat on. I'm sure those who don't know him are thinking that he is a band wagoner. Sad thing is, they probably didn't even notice the Saints hat on his head years ago. People are so self absorbed.
Same here....

Been a Saints fan for a long time that said I can understand how they are the current darlings of the NFL...first SuperBowl..I'm sure they don't mind at all

I'm also a long time Mets fan & trust me no band wagons there to jump on

I give you credit though. The same credit I give to diehard fans of teams with...um....winning problems. As a Steeler fan from Pittsburgh, I almost wish we didn't have the number of national fans that we do. It takes away from the fraternal feel.

The team's fans that annoy me most now are Saints fans. Maybe its because ever since I can remember there have been millions of Cowboys or Steelers fans. Those bandwagon fans were already established during the majority of my lifetime. But when you take a team like the Saints where there used to be a small number of saints fans to the way it is now with a bunch of LA bimbos wearing Reggie Bush jerseys, its disgusting.

Colts and Steelers and Cowboys...

I understand the Patriots, but not many people where I live ( I haven't been alive long enough to have more than one team)

Patriots gave up 15 pts within the 4th quarter, after stomping the Colts, and the Colts won by 1 point, everyone the next day was dogging on the Patriots and how they got "murdered"

Steelers, a couple years ago when Roth wasn't being accused of rape
and Cowboys continusously...I don't think they've won a game yet though, have they

Carson Palmer's mother is the other Bengal fan. Heck, she's got TWO sons on the team.

For me its the Pats for sure. Pats fans didn't exist until the 90's. Now they're coast to coast? Give me a break.
I think a lot of us ladies started liking the Pats when Brady came aboard. Yeah, it's pathetic but true. I'm Just sayin'...

Oh, and can I just say for the record I am a true Seahawks fan. I'm making sure it's known now so that when they win it all I won't look like a bandwagoner

I'll throw in my 2 cents - Cowboys (worst BY FAR), then maybe Pats, Jets and Saints.
