Pakcers fans tools over the L.A Colleseum. Eagles fans took over FedEx field. Browns fans came close to taking over the Broncos stadium. Any other examples?

Correction: Every group of visiting fans took over FedEx Field.

Technically still last year (1/7/18), the wildcard game between the Bills and Jags. It was crazy to see the amount of Bills fans at EverBank field in Jacksonville. I guess that's what happens when a team ends an 18-year playoff drought. Plus everyone in WNY looks for a reason to go to Florida in January HAHA!

Whenever the Minnesota Vikings play Arizona, especially if the game is late in the season.

The number of retired snowbirds living down there from the Dakotas and Minnesota is huge making for a stadium with a tremendous lot of purple. Every time they play down there the announcers remark about this.

Conversely Packer/Viking games in Minneapolis always draws a lot of green and yellow due to proximity and rivalry. Even Packer fans want to occasionally watch their team enjoying a cold beer without having to survive with spiked hot chocolate.

Pats fans took over the Super Bowl. Does that count?

Add Packers fans, Steelers fans, and Bears fans.

Amen. FedEx is essentially neutral ground for games. The half-empty stadium is usually split between Washington fans & fans supporting road team.

A generation of mediocre to bad Redskin teams has created a seating vacuum that didn't exist @ RFK. And there's been so many transplanted government workers to Northern VA, it's gone from solid Redskin country to a (more) cosmopolitan NFL fan base. Not good for a home field advantage..

Might not be a popular take and don't mean to generalize against the younger crowd, I'm older but Packers won't admit they have a problem.

Huge long waiting list which gets talked about during game broadcasts. However, season tickets handed down through families are being sold rather than attending. Some games you see many colors from visiting teams, even first row seats. I know people sell their tickets, some make money. Others will try to make sure they go to Pack fans but some look for profit.

I'm sure all teams have this issue, some more than others and I don't know what can be done to fix it.
