Bandwagon fans: Helpful for growing the brand of the team... detrimental to the psyche of the loyal fans.


It's just one of those things in the human experience that will happen. People want to be on the winning side, and if you care more about the wins than you do the team or sport, it is easy to jump on to the popular team. This is especially true if that team had fewer fans to begin with because it has the added bonus of feeling like you are among a unique faction that is different than the others.

Bandwagons don't exist for losing teams. So just think about that for a minute

They're also usually the first to jump off if things go bad.
I would like to have seen a graphical representation of the number of Falcons fans, as determined by Facebook posts, as the Super Bowl progressed. It certainly would have spiked during the 3rd quarter, started dropping during the 4th quarter and bottomed out in OT.

To be 100% honest, I LOVE bandwagon fans. When you're team has bandwagon fans it means your team is winning a lot. I don't care if someone was at every game during the 0-21 streak. I don't even care if they know we went 0-21. If they want to jump on the Gamecock bandwagon, bring 'em on. That just means we're winning.

Don't get me started on those who suddenly discovered that we play baseball at 11:36 pm June 29, 2010.

I worked with a guy that was a Sooner fan in football and Tarheel fan in basketball. He gave me crap years ago when unc beat us in basketball. Sometime around 2006, 7 or 8. I can't remember. I told him to STFU since he did not go to unc, ever live in NC and chose them probably because they won a lot. Douche.
