    More Haters or More Bandwagon Fans?

    When a team is winning a lot like Titles or they are in the finals yearly (ECF/WCF) such as the Celtics of the 60's, Celtics/Lakers of the 80's, Bulls of the 90's, Lakers/Spurs of the 2000's and this past season for Boston and the Lakers. With that in mind, are there more fans who are Haters or more Bandwagon fans?

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Let me just end this thread rather quickly.

    When you see people across the globe wearing Laker jerseys, you know it's nothing but bandwagoners.

    When I saw that Iraqi boy with a Kobe jersey on burning the American flag, it automatically clicked in my head.

    EDIT: Well, I don't know. The bandwagoners turn people into haters, so it's kind of even.

    Naturally - most people aren't gonna drop 80 bucks to watch a team get whooped 75% of the time. Most watch from home every once in a while and follow new news by means of the paper, radio, and internet. It happens with every team: success increases interest and willingness to spend money and effort to travel to a game - going to games takes more than just dedication because people have lives to worry about as well. There's more than just one way (going to games) to show dedication (listening to the latest news on the way to work).



    There are more haters when the team and/or other teams in the city repeat(s), but more bandwagon fans when the team wins one because less outside the city are gonna hate on a team that wins once.

    The Packers have sold out every game for the last 30 something years. They were a horrible team a few years ago for like a 3-4 year span.

    What you said is not true.

    would u say in most cases it is true or for the most part not true at all?


    i think it might have to be taken on a case by case, team by team, sport by sport basis. very situational. for example a 16 game season can't be looked at the same as an 82 or 162 game season.

    i dont go to games always expecting my team to win im just there to have a good time so if people in Boston cant have a good time just because their team will loose they should move somewhere where the team is winning or just change teams all together not just wait for the team to win

    Well there were alot of the Celtics bandwagoners on here, but that is pretty much all I've seen in terms on PSD lately.

    Im sure there are plenty of bandwagon Laker fans, but hell..the Laker fan population is so huge here already it's hard to tell.

    I think there are more haters.
