I've always been under the impression that a bandwagon fan is someone who changes allegiances to teams from week to week and season to season. A fair weather fan is someone who doesn't necessarily change which team they root for but they only care about a team with passing interest (say they're in the playoffs or made a big comeback and it's on sportscenter or something) and there's nothing wrong with that at all. Some die-hards can become hostile towards those they perceive has being an inferior fan because they feel they've invested more time, energy, and emotion than the other guy.. "How dare they try and take part in this glorious moment when they haven't endured the tragic defeats?!" I think right there is where people can chill out.. If you're a die hard then you KNOW how ecstatic you feel when things are going good so why would you even care what the other guy feels? You know it's not as sweet for them as it is for you! So I say sign up / hop on the wagon and get while the gettin is good because every extra seahawk fan is one less potential 9'er fan, and say it with me - GO HAWKS!!!



You're basically describing the same kind of fan with 2 different words.

But as Bill says, the original band wagon fan is one who really owes no allegience to any team. Kind of like ninnir fans. There have been thousands of them wouldn't be caught dead being a fan until the last 2 years when they are winning again.

Seahawks have lots of those. People that would never have come here or mentioned the Seahawks. Now they are showing up in droves pretending they are knowledgable football fans when in reality they are goggle exspurts.

But it takes all kinds of fans to support a team through various times. You just need to expect it and take them with a grain of salt. After all they are here until the next losing season when its "oh the same old Seahawks" and they go of the map again.

:les:


The distinction I was making was that a bandwagon fan CHANGES teams as it suites them and a fairweather fan roots for ONE team as it suites them. That's why I used 2 different words, that subtle difference makes them distinct from one another. Maybe I should have omitted the word "necessarily" in my description of a fairweather fan but I thought it was pretty clear what I was getting at. The point was entirely moot to begin with as I was just rewording what BlueThunder said... It would have been easier to just say, "Why would a die-hard fan care?".

On to the next thread!

to put it more simply:

Bandwagon fan - supports whoever is winning (so would have supported the Pats, Colts, Saints, Packers etc over last decade)
Fairweather fan - only supports their team when it is winning but doesn't care about football any other time (niner fans)

Oh man, I hate the type of bandwagon fan that just floats around to the latest powerhouse team so they can quasi-celebrate the championship game every year. It's like they never want to experience defeat... I mean it sucks when your team is mediocre, but that's what true allegiance is... sticking with 'em through thick and thin. I don't even understand the mindset of that type of "fan". The 49er dynasty years is a perfect example. They had millions of those types all around the country. Along with them just buying championships in the pre-salary cap years, that's where my deep-rooted hatred of that team began, way before the Seahawks even joined the NFC. And no, Niners fans, this isn't a thread to argue about buying championships...

Incorrect. Most of us are level headed. A lot of game day only posters like Toronto or Mcbobly do have toddler meltdowns.

Most of the game day only posters go into meltdown if we go behind at any point. I wish the game day forum posts didn't disappear forever, topics from the end of the first quarter against the Bears, Rams and Redskins would make some good light reading when I feel down

If you think the game day posts are bad you should see the game day chat.

The very definition of bi-polar.

Oh well all you superior fans that don't meltdown during games.

I frickin freak out. Always have, always will.

I guess that makes those of us bandwagoners.

Just going to make resale tickets even more expensive. I will definitely have to get them when they go on sale this year at Seahawks.com.

So since I'm so new, I'm a bandwagon fan, but I wasn't screaming for Flynn every time we lost a game early on in the season. So where does that put me? level-headed bandwagon fan?

I'm kind of new here. My first post was after the Dolphins game and I DECLARED that the Seahawks would beat the Bears. Everyone thought I was on crack and laughed at me :(.

Can't call newbies bandwagonaires cause we don't know their team backgrounds. For now we're just happy to have you here with us.
