Top 20 Things Heard From Bandwagon Sports Fans

Bandwagon sports fans are the worst. Obviously, a team with more to play for is more exciting to watch, but completely ignoring your team when they're not doing well shows a lack of character. Even when a team is out of the running for the postseason, real fans should get pleasure out of seeing them win. You stand by your team because they are your team, and ignoring them when they’re down just means they aren’t really your team.

In down seasons, the players are out there busting their butts, risking their bodies purely for pride and for the fans. The least we can do is go out and watch them, especially when tickets are probably cheaper anyway. The will to win despite being out of the race is an inspiring thing to watch.

One of the most hilarious things in history wasn’t just what coach Herman Edwards said at his notorious 2002 press conference when questioned about his losing team’s ability to win. It was his face when he looked around the room as if he were explaining the simplest concept to the dumbest people on the planet. “You play to win the game. Hello? You play to win the game. You don't play it to just play it. That's the great thing about sports: you play to win, and I don't care if you don't have any wins. You go play to win. When you start tellin' me it doesn't matter, then retire. Get out! 'Cause it matters."

The ‘what is wrong with you people’ look on his face was so funny because of the truth in all of it. It was understandable and well-deserved. You do play to win the game, and if that isn’t enough for you, take Edwards’ advice and get out. Stop watching sports, because you don’t deserve them.
