the skinny: If you are a team that is not considered a winning team, you have a rabid base of knowledgeable fans. If you are considered a winning team, you add more fans, and the fans you add are not knowledgeable about the team. They are front-running fair-weather fans who have zero loyalty and just want to feel like a "winner".
Just ask any of the longtime Pats fans who troll this board. If they suffered through the 70's and 80's hopelessly rooting for the Pats, I would imagine they have a certain degree of disdain for the "new" fans the Pats added after starting their run of SB appearances. Point in fact, these idiots boo'd the Pats at home in a close game against a division rival.
Ask 100 Jets fans who their LG is and 100 of them will say he sucks
I guess there are many posts like this on the Giant site most likely not because it is gay.
Giant fans are very fortunate that their mediocre 9-7, 10-6 teams backed up their blind homerism in 2007 and 2011. They act like they know all, when reality is their team pulled out 2 of the more surprising title runs in NFL history that was not hinted at in any way during the regular seasons. I can't stand how obnoxious they are, I can't stand that they think Eli is the best QB in the league (because of his comebacks), and I really can't stand the numerous breaks they got on those title runs (Tyree helmet catch, Williams fumbles twice, etc.). Lucky a.s.s. team
Insane that the same year Giant fans wanted Eli replaced and Coughlin fired, they end up winning the SB. Romo, Favre, and Brady should be ashamed of themselves for losing to that team.
JETS fans are passionate if nothing else.....
It requires some degree of intelligence to root for a team that hasn't won a championship since 1969.
The Jets fanbase may be perceived as dumber or less classy this year because of the Tebow-ites masquerading as "Jets fans" simply because we have him. Just look at the Jets Facebook page; dozens of poorly written wall posts/recommendations- "Start Tebow", "TEBOWTEBOWTEBOW", "Why isn't Tim Tebow playing?", when the majority of the users writing that are Gators fans. Meanwhile, the more constructive posts on the page, even the ones suggesting that Tebow see more time are written by actual Jets fans.
