Well, it was bad, real bad and tough to be a bronco fan when McDaniels was driving our team into the ground and had to fight with the idiots that thought that was ok

I'd say Dallas because of the owner that has perhaps blocked his own team chances for success

I voted Cleveland. That franchise has sucked forever, and the disarray of incompetence is beyond terrible, and no sign of it ever getting better.

It's not even close. At least the other franchises have had some sort of past success even if only regular season, or mystique, or cult following or are young franchises. Cleveland has NOTHING. Detroit should probably also be in the poll.

Teams like the Browns would just be happy to be in the playoffs with a huge named QB.

We want to win the whole thing and big names and just getting in the tournament matter for very little.

Cleveland by a landslide.

Bookend one end of the Brown's misery with "The Drive" and "The Fumble" and then stick Johnny "Football" Manziel on the other end, and you now have a 3+ decade timeslice of bad luck, ineptitude, and constant "rebuilding" years.

Browns fans are the unluckiest fans in the world.

Damn right. I'll take our "winlosses" over perpetual losing and forever incompetence everyday. The only reason why some of our winlosses are determined winlosses is because a large chunk of our fanbase demands excellence.

Look at New England. They are a great franchise (even if some of their successes are ill-got). If a I see a level of success like what they've enjoyed, then I think it can be possible here.

Nah. 4 Super Bowl losses, even if having no wins, at least they've tasted what it's like to be in the big game. The Vikings have history with the Purple People Eaters and Fran Tarkenton. The Bills had some great great players on their Super Bowl teams, but the fact they have done almost nothing since those days must suck pretty bad.

ScottXray
01-10-2016, 08:40 PM
Of the teams listed I had to choose DALLAS. All of them suck, especially Cleveland. But Dallas used to be good... now it's how the mighty have fallen.

Jerrah has got SO much money and he thinks he is a brilliant football mind...Yet he has screwed that team up so much it isn't funny.

Used to be AMERICAS team....Now its just a Mericun team and can't even compete in a weak division. High ticket prices and no real hope of it getting better anytime soon. CAP hell and crappy coach, crappy QB crappy defense..with a crappy owner too.

Dallas won't come back tell Jerry gets his mits out of the management.

The problem for the Browns is that they now have the worst owner in the NFL.

Jimmy Haslam is now the poster child for "The Owner You Don't Want to Have".

Previously, that title belonged to Daniel Snyder. Just think how bad things must be if your owner is *WORSE* than Dan Snyder!

That's the thing that has been so insufferable about Raiders fans the last few years. They have sucked, but their fans didn't know they sucked.

I voted Cleveland, but Detroit is close.

The Cardinals used to be a really, really bad franchise, but the owner's son is doing a much better job. Bidwells I think.

Chargers are actually in my book as well, bad owners, crappy sports politics, lots of choking. Philip Rivers has glossed a lot of lipstick on that pig.

I could never be a fan of the Raiders, but I understand why they have the fanbase they do. They have a lot to be proud of and a style that's all their own.

Sad thing is their franchise left and did really well in baltimore.
It has to be Cleveland for sucking for so long and you are in a freezing city with a bad reputation. Jacksonville has to be up there too just because they are not well known and if you go to a bar to watch them play, it will be on the smallest screen available and not one other fan of the Jaguars will be there. Absolutely sad to be a fan and no one else knows who the f they are.

I found this interesting. Being a fan in Massachusetts is just natural. But all of these guys from across the united states that are fans of NE, I wonder how they justify Spygate, Deflategate, ect. in their minds.

This past year I got into a converstation with a Patiots Fan. During the conversation I said the Patriots were cheaters, he said they were not, so I said what about the NFL fining the Patriots $500,000, and taking away draft picks? He had no response.

I have no problem whatsoever with the long-suffering Chickens fan who knows who Jim Zorn and Dave Krieg were. It's the ones who hear the name "Curt Warner" and say "yeah, he was a great QB for the Rams and Cardinals" that raise the eyebrow for me.

If they think "Ground Chuck" is just something you buy at the supermarket, then it's a sure sign they're a bandwagon fan. Front-running bandwagon fans suck.

being a CLE fan is like being a Cubs fan. i think at this point CLE fans take a perverse pride in how bad they are. it gives them "cred" to stick by them as real fans.

i think being an OAK fan would be hardest for me. not only do i despise their uniform and logo and city and history and past players and past coaches (e.g. Madden) and past owners, but i actually hate their fans too. it would be impossible for me to look past all of that and root for them. the fact that they have won plenty during their existence is irrelevant to me. they are simply a detestable franchise in my eyes in ever conceivable way i try to look at them.

id' rather watch a 3 hour infomercial than a Raiders game where they aren't playing the Broncos.

Whatcha got? Spygate? You really think they won a Super Bowl because of Spygate? Patriots fans LAUGH at that one. You are cluless as to what Spygate was all about if you use it as an argument as to why the Patriots won a Super Bowl.

What else? Deflategate? Unbelievable, even if the balls were deflated Brady looked better in the second half with "properly" inflated balls. How did that help him again? How did they win the super Bowl last year?

The reason the Patriots are the number one target of cheating accusations: success. No other team in the league has been as relevant as the Patriots have been in the 21st century. Neither the Broncos, nor the Saints, nor the Seahawks – there will not be any cries for asterisks since neither team has rivaled the success the Patriots have had. If they don't keep wining year in and year out then nobody cares! You think if the Browns were accused of anything anybody would give a crap?

It actually makes us a stronger group of fans so keep it coming.Hilarious!

broncocalijohn
01-11-2016, 11:32 AM
Pats fans think their scandals are based on one game for thier last SB win. The deflated balls help them possibly win games throughout the season to get to the SB. Talent might have won the SB game but getting there could be from cheating. Anyways, let us keep this to the topic and not let the Pats fans screw another thread up.

Das Rote Baron

The deflated balls help them possibly win games throughout the season to get to the SB.

But we will never know that because checking the pressure of balls was never a concern, for ANY team until the Colts & Ravens became crybabies and the inept NFL F'd the whole thing up. How do you try to accuse deflation and not take note of ball PSI before the game?

God I hope the Patriots win a 5th this year, we need another scandal it's getting boring around here.

I'd say some of you haters are delusional, but it's as transparent as a window that you're alleging it would be hard to be a Patriot fan purely because you hope Patriot fans read it and believe that's your actual take.

It's pretty damn easy to be a Patriot fan. When they're firing on all cylinders, which is 90% of the time, they're always one of the most fun teams to watch in the NFL. Tom Brady's intensity is now legendary, and his cast of Gronkowskis and Edelmans make it even better.

The Patriots win… often by a lot.

A long string of epic playoff wins followed by near undefeated seasons and lots of hardware make it incredibly easy.

For us, football is fun. A whole lot of fun.

I think keeping the trophies is a better punishment. Giving them back would reset your karma and release the guilt.

Now you guys have to live with it forever. And always be called out as the cheaters that you are.

I have no doubt that will get old. Also raising your kids to be pats fans will no doubt lead to a terrible "why would you root for cheaters dad?"moment when the kid gets old enough to learn right from wrong.

I can only imagine your justification that will no doubt plant the seeds of eternal resentment from your child for being so weak of mind and spirit.

My kids are smart enough to understand jealousy breeds contempt. It's a really good life lesson.

The hard part is explaining why we don't have duck boat parades every year. We've had so many for all our sports teams they think it's an annual event.
