Eagles pulling out to an early lead.....not that I'm surprised, they have earned that rep. At least no one was stabbed at any Eagles games this year though!

 
Gotta be philly.Booed SantaBooed children signing the anthemClapping the serious Mike Irvin injury was awful and classless.

As an Eagles fan, I just have to laugh at this poll. WORST fans in the NFL? :no: Unless you live in the Philly area and have a good idea of what our fans are like, and still wish to vote that way, then you are just clueless. The most drunk fans in the NFL? Not sure how you would even know that. I would love to vote for the Raiders based on their rep, but I've never been to a game, so I wouldn't know that. Yes, SOME Eagles may have made the rest of us look bad, but to call us the worst fans?? Great poll.

Yep, keep bringing up the same old boring Santa booing incident. :yawn: The Irvin thing I agree with.

The children thing I don't even remember happening...when was that?

 
Let's play ask stevejohnsonSo tell me stevejohnson,1. Have you been to a home game for each of the 32 NFL teams which allows you to single out the fans of these 6 teams as cream of the crop when it comes to drunken bums?2. Have you even been to a home game for each of these 6 NFL teams, or are you jsut making gross generalizations about their fans based on media reports and internet chatter?

 
Depends on what your definition of worst is I mean yes Eagles fans will boo other players as well as their own but they travel well and atleast understand what is going on around them and have passion for the game. I mean IMO nobody comes to close to GB fans as far as being passionate but Eagles fan are easily top 5. I would rather have loud obnoxious fans cheering along side of me then ones who are quiet and rarely show emotion. I was in the service for many years and went to a lot of different stadiums and I will admit Eagles fans might be some of the most obnoxious fans but go to a Rams game and tell me you rather be apart of that.

How did you come up with this list, really?Steelers and Redskins fans clearly missing from this list.But - all of them at least care. Where are the fans in Arizona, Jacksonville (they are in the playoffs people), among others.Every stadium has their upper deck / end zone / black hole / Dawg Pound / 700 level crowd. If they have a crowd.70,000 people who are cold and drunk - cannot imagine why they'd get rowdy.In the interest of disclosure - I've been to games in Philly (at the Vet a few times), both DC stadiums (FedEx is terrible - the stadium itself), and Ravens stadium.Where's my DirecTV remote? My basement and big screen are good enough for me....

The only way I can firgure his disdain for Jets fans is that little stevie johnson probably got beat down at the Meadowlands during a Jets game and needed his wife's help pulling the weggie from his ### afterwards. dummy.

Few years back.....Nervous teenage girl does the National Anthem and she slipped up a few times. They boooed her mercilessly.

 
Eagles fans are just dirty people, figuratively and literally. They have bad hygiene and they smell bad :X I still can't believe they cheered when Sapp got hurt. Thats low. They deserve everything they have gotten. They will go down in history as the most pathetic losers in the NFL. They just can't win the big game :no:

 
Guys, the Santa was a drunk guy in a Santa suit. However, Eagles fans in general are quite boisterous, intoxicated, and frequently stupid - especially my relatives. Before anybody gets upset - I'm from Philly, and I've spent enough time in the 700 level to know.

Steelers fans do not belong anywhere near a "worst" fans list. :boxing: :hot:
 
The Santa incident always kills me when someone brings it up. It was in the 60's, at Franklin Field, and they booed because the Santa that was supposed to appear never showed and they took a guy from the stands that just happened to be wearing a Santa suit. He looked pretty bad and the fans booed.I am a philly homer and some of the fans that go to the games are just plain morons. But I would imagine that every NFL city has a few boneheads that ruin things for everyone else.

:lmao: I'm not sure how that story helps your case.Yes every team has fans that are a bit of an embarrassment.
 
I have been to many Eagles games with my 9 year old son and have never had an issue. I have also been to several other NFL satdiums and experienced problems in some and no problems in others.I would guess that the majority of people that votes for the Eagles have never been to an Eagle home game.

I had the same thoughts...
 
I voted for the Eagles fans simply because, judging from this thread anyway, they seem to be the most defensive about the issue thereby proving the point at hand. :confused:

 
When I was in Oakland I met a ton of Raiders fans. I was a little surprised at how decent they all were. Extremely friendly people. I was actually getting a little disappointed. I went to a Raider bar and - despite several fans who looked like they belonged to an S&M biker gang - they were great. Even after they found out I'm a Buc fan. After being out there I'd rank Raiders fans among the best.

 
Steelers fans are the best in the NFL - bar none. They're loyal, knowledgable, respectful and just cool.

Our group is usually in the parking lot 6hrs or so before a 1:00 game, for example. Normally just other Jets fans are there in an otherwise empty parking lot. Every time the Jets play the Steelers, their fans easily out number the Jets early birds and make the parking lot look moderately busy at that time.

They'll be the first one's to come over, introduce themselves, offer up some of their grub and just want to talk football. I can't say that about any other fans I've met during Jets games.

I havent been to an Eagles game but I've watched plenty on TV. The boos always come through loud and clear.Eagles fans for the win.

:thumbup: I think the RAIDER fans in LA(when they played there )had a reputation because alot of street gangs would go and cause problems,but in oakland it`s just a big noisy halloween party every weekend.Take them off the list,they really don`t belong anymore.There about as intimidating as there team..... :yawn:

 
I heard that all philly fans are 7 feet tall and they shoot lightning bolts from their eyes :rolleyes: When's the last time that Philly fans littered the field with trash because a call was overturned against them???How about the last time they attacked an official during the game??? How many times have they gotten into fights in the stands with players??Philly has their share of idiots, but so does every other city... So keep bringing up an incident that happened almost 40 years ago

 
BILLS FANS ARE DRUNKEN LOSERS!!!!! :D :loco: Fan misconduct mars Bills game--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game day, time mix badly with alcoholBy GENE WARNER News Staff Reporter12/20/2005 Click to view larger picture James P. McCoy/Buffalo NewsSecurity personnel lead a shirtless fan to the sidelines at Ralph Wilson Stadium after he ran onto the field near the end of the Bills-Broncos game Saturday night, forcing officials to call a delay. Click to view larger picture File photo A fan, his face bloodied from a fight, is escorted out of Ralph Wilson Stadium by security workers. Maybe it was the 8:30 p.m. starting time. Or the fact that the game was played on Saturday night, a party night. Maybe it was the January-type frigid temperatures. Or maybe it was just a crowd of disgruntled fans unhappy with the Buffalo Bills' tough season. Whatever the reasons, Saturday night's loss to the Denver Broncos was witnessed by one of the worst-behaved crowds at Ralph Wilson Stadium in recent memory, authorities said Monday. The main culprit was obvious: alcohol. "I don't like night games in winter in Buffalo," Orchard Park Police Chief Samuel M. McCune said. "I don't like night games at all, especially on a Saturday. It gives people more time to get lubricated." Fans who like their alcohol had all day to drink - and all Sunday to recuperate. Things got so bad Saturday night the Bills decided to cut off beer sales after the first quarter, something they hadn't done in at least 10 years. Beer normally is sold through halftime. "In monitoring the situation, we realized that there seemed to be more intoxicated fans [than usual] around the concession areas," said Scott Berchtold, the team's vice president for communications. "So we made a decision to cut off the beer sales." Authorities on Monday detailed what a tough night it was for fans and for those who keep the peace: A late-arriving crowd created what several fans called a chaotic scene at many ticket gates. Patrick M. Howard, security manager for Apex Security at the stadium, remembered seeing the stadium virtually empty just before kickoff, while the parking lots remained filled with bonfires. The last-minute rush to the gates left many fans waiting 20 to 25 minutes, or more, to get inside. "At some of the gates, people were still trying to get in at 9 o'clock," Howard said. Authorities logged 22 arrests, compared with the usual average of about 10 arrests. Sixteen of those arrests were inside the stadium, six outside. Security officers had to break up more fights than normal. "We had a lot more assaults than usual, four or five at least, and there were a lot of fights in the stands," McCune said. Pat Braun, a 21-year-old Bills fan from Amherst, said he noticed quite a few fights, both in the crowd waiting to get into the stadium and in the stands. "It was surprising to see how many Bills fans were going after each other," he said. "The fans were really, really frustrated with each other and with the team." To put an exclamation mark on the rough night, one bold - or totally wasted - fan had to be corraled by security officers when he dashed onto the field near the end of the game. He wasn't streaking. He wasn't wearing a jacket or shirt, but he had his pants on, to ward off the 29-degree cold. Howard also noted several other signs of the excessive drinking, including a lot of fans either falling or vomiting. "We had a busy night, and a lot of it was alcohol-related, from start to finish," Howard said. "There wasn't a whole lot of fan consideration, from one fan to the next." Howard then added a postscript felt by other law enforcement officials: "Night games are tough." The rowdiness at Saturday's game may kick-start the debate over night games at Ralph Wilson Stadium. For years, in the mid-1990s, Bills officials preferred not to have any regular-season night games, because of the large numbers of fans having to drive back to the Rochester and Syracuse areas so late at night. The Bills hadn't played a regular-season home night game for five years, since the season opener against Tennessee in 2000. They had played only two prime-time home games in the past 10 years. But the Bills' position has changed in recent years, partly because of the desire to showcase the team in front of a national television audience. "We're grateful for any prime-time game we can get," Berchtold said. "There's an air of excitement for the fans."

 
The only real criteria about best fans/worst fans is how the team and players perceive the fans. And by that criteria, Eagles fans are probably the best. Eagles players over the decades have continually sung the praises of their fans.As far as worst, it's got to be Lions fans. What kind of morons wear the opposing teams colors to a home game? I'm sure the players and coaching staff really appreciated that gesture.

 
I really couldn't imagine a worse atmosphere for fans than at Raider games.
I don`t follow,atmosphere for raiders fans or the opposing teams fans?
both.i'm a raider fan and would never take a family there.

i have seen opposing fans have food thrown on them just walking up the stairs to get to their seat before the game.

between that, joints being passed around, drunken people falling on top of you, and fights breaking out it's a pretty miserable atmosphere.

i used to have season tickets in LA and have been to a couple games in oakland.

with that said, i would much rather go to any NFL venue than the ####hole the Cardinals play in.

gb them moving next year.

Either. I've never been to a Raider game and not been within visual range of at least two all out fist fights (many of them after the game in the congested BART lines). I lived in the Bay Area for four years and live about an hour and a half outside now so I know a lot of good Raider fans, but few of them go to the games. The two friends that I know with season tickets absolutely refuse to bring their family/girlfriend. It's a really bad environment all around.
 
As far as worst, it's got to be Lions fans. What kind of morons wear the opposing teams colors to a home game? I'm sure the players and coaching staff really appreciated that gesture.
umm... maybe those morons are really fans of the opposing team?
 
I voted hands down for Eagles's fans. I grew up in the area and found just about every Eagles fan to be one of the following:1. Rude, obnoxious - Would poor beer on a five year old kid who wore a Cowboys shirt.2. Disloyal - From booing McNabb, to burning tickets, to writing them off immediately this year (and most others)3. Nonsensical - Good luck talking overall football with them. They either are completely bias to Eagles' players or every player in the league is a "bum". They have no concept of what it means to be objective.4. Not learned - Generally, they really don't know what's going on on the field. The general fan will yell and scream despite the Eagles' coaching staff making the right decision, they don't know what the situation calls for, etc.5. A felon.

 
Eagles fans are just dirty people, figuratively and literally. They have bad hygiene and they smell bad :X

I still can't believe they cheered when Sapp got hurt. Thats low. They deserve everything they have gotten. They will go down in history as the most pathetic losers in the NFL. They just can't win the big game :no:
You do realize that the fans aren't the ones playing on the field, right?
 
Falcons have some really bad fans in terms of knowledge and loyalty. As a season ticket holder for the past 5 years I'd say the worst fans to come to the Dome would be from Philly. Always more fights, tasteless chants, smells, etc. when they are in town.

I was at a Chiefs/Steelers game on a Monday night showdown here in KC a few years back (Steelers won). There was a couple (guy/girl) that had their steeler garb on and since it was a Monday night game they wanted to get on TV and apparently it was there mom's birthday. So they drapped a yellow blanket over one of the rails that said "Happy Birthday Mom"...just trying to get their mom to see them and all of a sudden a bunch of inbred Chiefs fans jumped up and slapped their Steelers hard hats over the side and started a fight! About 20 Chiefs fans picking on a married couple or siblings. Just kinda pissed me off. I'm amazed at how the "KC inbreds" seem to think everyone has to like their team or be put to death. I don't mind talking smack but when someone places their hands on me just because I don't see the world through their eyes...sheesh! I was also at another Chiefs game when they played the jags (jags won). I am a jag fan and I was sporting my vintage Brunell jersey. I lost my footing coming down a hill in the parking lot and people were actually wishing bodily harm on me. Thanks to my cat like reflexes I was able to regain my footing without looking too silly. but what kind of people wish harm on others...other than Philly fans? ;)

Really....I also grew up in that area and the most descriptive word for Eagles / Philadelphia fans is "passionate". Multiple cities have that distinction, and it is usually preceded or followed by "knowledgeable". Boston, New York, Chicago to name a few. All are "rabid" or "avid" fans.

Yes, some are myopic and focus only on their team. However, I for one have been an Eagles fan for 26 years and I don't fit the bill on any of your wonderful list....

And #5 is classless. :no:

 
It'd be a coin flip between Eagles and Browns fans. Then they would argue about what side was heads and a drunken maylay would insue with senseless barking about who has the worse Defensive Coodinator, or the better giant foamy #1 finger. I'd give the advantage to Browns fans because they could use a buckeye cannon to fire the state fruit into the throats of their enemy. Either way the whole scene smells like urine and defeat which both sides are use to.

Gotta be philly.

Booed Santa

Booed children signing the anthem

Clapping the serious Mike Irvin injury was awful and classless.
This freakin' aggravates me every time some clown brings this up. I was at this game were you? For the thousandth time, fans did not cheer at this cokeheads injury. They cheered that he was NOT paralyzed.
