Every team has their share of crazy fans. They even have their share of psychotic fans. But overall a lot of teams just can’t compare to a few when it comes to how many nuts they actually have sitting in the stands for their home games. In 2017 the competition for crazy fan bases will continue as it always has, but in the case of some teams they won’t be able to live up to the rest when it comes to sheer volume. You might see the occasional fan of the Colts, Bengals, and any other team that go all out with their costumes and outfits, but those listed below will almost always rest a step above when it comes to the overall fan base.
5. Seattle Seahawks
The 12’s are known for being loud, painted up, and ready to throw down when it comes to supporting their team. Seattle is a proud and boisterous bunch that make the Clink shake with their voices as was evidenced in the past when they actually set the record for the loudest stadium. That record has since been taken by the Chiefs, but the Clink is still one of the most intimidating stadiums for visiting teams to play in, and it’s largely because the 12’s.
4. Philadelphia Eagles
You can badmouth the Patriots on a Boston street and not get beat down as badly as you would for daring to speak ill of the Eagles while in Philadelphia. They know their team isn’t that great but they’re the only ones that get to say so. If you so much as utter a word about their team in a disrespectful manner there’s a chance that you’ll have a flock of Eagle fans swooping down on you before you can even start to apologize.
3. San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco and their five rings. It might seem sad to hold onto faded glory when the team hasn’t done much in the past few years, but 49er fans are probably the most emotional of all the teams as they try to justify why they’re still relevant. In truth the only time they ever get really riled up is when they come near a Seahawks fan, and then they’ll gladly remind the Hawks about their five rings, and never mention why they didn’t get another chance at a sixth. What was that line again? Nope.
2. Green Bay Packers
Why are they psychotic? Who in the world sits in a stadium filling up with snow and temperatures reaching close to zero degrees and still cheers their team on through stuttering, chapped lips? That’s right, the Packer Backers. It’s called dedication, but it’s also called frostbite.
1. Oakland Raiders
The glory days might be returning, but that’s never stopped Raiders fans from acting like they never left. You walk into that sea of black and silver with anything but good intentions and it might just swallow you up like a black hole. Raiders fans are known to be kind of kooky and out there, but one thing you can always count on is their loyalty.
The most psychotic fan bases are usually the most loyal, and in 2017 we’re going to find out just who’s willing to stand behind their team once more and watch them rise or fall.
