Any "fans" that chuck D-cell batteries at a player *cough* JD Drew, are by proxy the worst fans.

And Yankee fans...well ask 10 of them to name 3 players on the team besides Derek Jeter and about 2 of them will be able to do it.


Again, you are refering to the bandwagon Yankee fans and not the true Yankee fans. There are only so many bandwagon Yankee fans because the Yankees have won so much. It would be the same if the Red Sox had instead won all of those championships- they would have tons of bandwagoners who know nothing.

This doesn't sound right? Every team has "true fans" who are knowledgable, loyal, die hards. When we talk about a teams "fans" we are refering to the majority? Not the few smart ones.

You think I don't know that?

Whether or not they are bandwagon fans or not, they represent the majority of the fan base. Much to the displeasure of true fans I presume.

The fact remains that most Yankee "fans" cannot name 3 players on the their "favorite" team.

Chucking batteries at JD Drew shows that we're loyal fans. That dude didn't sign and went back into the draft. He ducked us...then he tried to duck our batteries. That dude is the worst in conditioning and overall approach to the game. He makes Griffey look like Cal Ripken. I hope his whole family drives off a cliff.

Best - Cubs

Worst - Yankees and Phillies

Notice I didn't put my team... we are average fans...

I just don't understand how people can be fans of the Lakers and the Yankees? It just makes no sense to me how people could be as passionete (sp) as I am for the Twins and the reasons I love them for those two teams..... it just doesn't seem fun...

Philly fans are just jerks

Yankee fans booed their captain whihc didn;t settle well with me either

Philly fans are by far the worst fans in all of sports. They just have no clue.

They booed Kobe Bryant during his homecoming in an All-Star game, booed McNabb on draft day, lob batteries at Drew, cheered when Irvin got hurt, fought with Tie Dome and booed Santa. And of course the most ignorant of all was they booed Mike Schmidt. Sure they weren't all baseball fan actions, but the entire fanbase in the area is just bad.

I actually gained some respect for Yankee fan when they gave Jeter a standing ovation towards the end of the big slump.

LOL. As long as no one catches a ball in foul territory. :-o

wrong. we did not turn on the team (we very well could've, since alex gonzalez booted that freaking easy double play ball), we turned on a specific, rather dumb fan who was not associated with the team at all.


Whatever. I was basically just referencing that they put a lot of blame on the kid when he did exactly what 99.9% of all other fans would have done and he had nothing to do with the outcome of the game. It wasn't his fault and he had to leave the area. That ain't right.

Fwiw, player's voted Card fans the best. Can't remember the rest. But Phillie fans are brutal on opponents, and their own team. I can't see Dodger fans being mentioned. Few teams can match the 3 mil + seasons they generate.
