Best Fans in the NFL
Some fans eat, sleep and breathe their football teams. Kidzworld looks at four NFL teams that have great fans!
Best Fans - Browns
Moving the Cleveland Browns out of town in 1995 was one of the most devastating things to happen to the Cleveland community. The reason? Cleveland loves their Browns and supports them whether they're winning or losing. A 2006 study determined that Browns fans are the most loyal in the NFL. It's no wonder they got their team back in 1999, and have sold 99.8 percent of their tickets since then. The most visible Browns fans can be found in the Dawg Pound - a section in their stadium where fans dress in orange and brown canine attire.
Best Fans - Raiders
Going to Oakland Raiders games is a lot like Halloween, except all the costumes are black and silver. Raiders Nation is the nickname given to the die-hard Raiders fans - not just in Oakland, but all over the world. They come early to games, paint their faces and wear black outfits. The Raider Nation typically sits in an area called the "black hole" which is a section in the stadium reserved for the craziest and rowdiest fans. It should be advised not to wear any 49ers gear around Raiders fans!
Best Fans - Packers
One word that will never be used to describe Green Bay Packer fans is bandwagon. Packer fans support their teams through thick and thin and the statistics prove it. Lambeau Field has sold out every year since 1960 and the waiting list for season tickets is 74,000! They probably have one of the biggest fan bases in the NFL despite being in a small market city. Wisconsin produces a lot of cheese so they are often referred to as "cheeseheads" and even wear foam cheese hats to the games.
Best Fans - Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys - America's team right? For decades, Texas has embraced their beloved boys in silver and blue. The Cowboys are one of the most successful franchises in all of pro sports, and you can argue that the 70,000 plus that pack in Texas Stadium every game has something to do with it. From August to December, the Cowboys are the toughest ticket in town! There's also a great base of Cowboy fans across the country.
