YOu can say the same about us with Elway. Do the fans stick with the team even when Elway retires or we suck? I say we don't fall in the bandwagon fan claim. Sure we pick up more fans but that happens with every team.
THere are tons of Cowboys, Packers and Steelers fans out there and they have a hard core home base like Denver. When you see the team in a down year is when you can judge. Chargers' fans are one of the worst I have seen. If people say Seahawks, is that because the city and area is getting overly excited based on this year's team? Then if that does make a team a Bandwagon, what do you call Denver in 1977 when people were painting their homes orange?
