This should be fun....

Which NFL team has the most annoying and/or most bandwagon fans? Why?

I know people in the South that were suddenly Patriots fans a few years ago. Same with the Steelers when they won Super Bowls.

Dallas Cowboys, by far. It's not even close. Pretty much every team that wins a Super Bowl will gain a bunch of "temporary bandwagon fans" (Patriots this past decade, 49ers during the 80s and 90s), which comes with the territory with good teams, but there is a permanent bandwagon fandom with the Cowboys in places thousands of miles from Texas whether they win or lose.

I second this. My sister has only been to Dallas once in her life, and i swear she'd buy season tickets to see them play. We live in Cincinnati btw.

"Permanent bandwagon" is a contradiction in terms. If people remain fans whether the team wins or loses, they are not bandwagon fans.

Saints fans. All the sudden I started seeing "who dat" stickers everywhere and NO is thousands of miles away. Not to mention the ones I've talked to can't name a player on the team outside of Brees and Bush.

Cowboys fans are a close second.

the usual suspects - raiders, cowboys, chargers, steelers & patriots

if the jets ever actually win anything of note I'm sure they'll join the list

49er fans are pretty close as well

Cowboys fans. How is this even debatable?

So many inner city kids wear Cowboys gear, cuz everytime they lose a game, Cowboy fans throw their t shirts in the Goodwill bin. Then they win and go out and buy a new shirt. Just a bizarre trend.

I was going to say the same thing.


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.

49ers fans are just delusional. I don't know if it is the official NFL team of Psych Wards, or what? Maybe all that pot smoking.
