It’s fair to say that sports teams and athletes would be nothing if it weren’t for the fans. No really. Imagine a stadium lacking the roar of the crowd, the energy, no cheers, no songs, no boos, nothing. Just the sound of your own beating heart and your feet hitting the ground. While that may sound magical, it’s nothing compared to the raw emotion that fans emit for the love of the team, the love of the game. That passion is beautiful. However, on the flip side, some fans are just a bit too crazy in love with their team. Take a look at these 15 fan bases all over the globe who are a bit, well, crazy.
Borussia Dortmund Fans
You’d think you were looking directly at the sun from close range by the amount of yellow that floods through the stadium of a Borussia Dortmund match. This club has earned the mantle of the “B team” of fans globally because it is so easy to get swept in the that manifests itself at one of their games.
Philadelphia Eagles Fans
As an Eagles fan, you’re much more emotional than almost any other fanbase out there. You are also extremely loud, no matter the result, I mean if you lose, you’re angry but you’re still loud as heck. And the funny thing is that these fans always expect the worst, interesting. Oh yeah, one last thing, did we mention the Santa Claus incident?
Pittsburgh Steelers Fans
If you flaunt your six Super Bowl championships one more time, I’ll go ahead and consult my personal injury lawyer right now. Never mind that these fans are mega intimidating and hard-nosed to any opposing team who dares in come to town.
Celtic FC Fans
Celtic fans are maniacs, let me explain. Celtic FC is a Scottish Premiership soccer club with a huge fan following. The fans chant and sing so loud that often times you can’t even hear the commentators. They’re always jumping up and down even if their team hasn’t done anything. They are intense and passionate, no matter the result, these fans will yell and cry their team to glory.
Boca Bosteros Fans
These fans know how to start a fire, and we’re not just talking about the atmosphere, we also mean literally. Quite often blue and yellow smoke comes wafting out in waves as they cheer their team to victory. Sounds a bit like this crew has a severe brain injury because setting a fire in your own stadium just seems so far over the line.
Duke Blue Devils Fans
I hope you’re not a sensitive baby who needs their personal injury lawyer on standby after getting heckled by the “Cameron Crazies” because that’s what happens when you step into Duke’s house. These fans have the best chants and insults to throw at the opposing team so be prepared.
Boston Celtics Fans
Rowdy? Check. Loud? Check, Bashful? Double check. You must be a Celtics game if you’ve got rowdy, loud, bashful fans shouting at you. In fact the amount of noise they produce might even cause you severe brain injury, no joke.
Manchester United Fans
This English soccer club has fans all over the globe. While some people would poke fun and say that they only have fans when they’re winning, they’d be right. Kidding. United fans are loud and proud, they have an army backing them up. Their passion and love for their club is historic.
If you’re in the cluster of a Montreal Canadiens fan then maybe you’re suffering from severe brain injury! No, no, we’re only kidding. Just a bad joke. What we do know is that each and every single fan dissects every little move, every turn, every play into minuscule sections. These fans riot whether their team wins or loses, doesn’t matter. If Montreal Canadiens aren’t classed as “crazy” then maybe we have severe brain injury for believing anything but.
St Louis Cardinals Fans
Cardinals fans have been dubbed the best baseball fans out there, especially when they travel away from home to watch them play. Like groupies. Also, you know that seeing the Budweiser Clydesdales is like Christmas. These fans bleed Cardinals Red through and through.
While it seems as NASCAR fans are a dying breed at the moment, we still appreciate each and every one of you. Cuddos to you for sitting in sweltering heat, sweating in places no person ever should, cheering until you lose your voice all while you watch cars go round and round and round for up to six hours. Granted the cars are going exceedingly quick. And sometimes, there’s a massive crash.
Oakland Raiders Fans
Welcome to Raider Nation. Home of the most intimidating, wild and raucous group of supporters that there ever was. Each fan in the stadium is always decked up with face paint and war clothes, it’s a little scary sometimes and I think that’s the point.
The most passionate bunch out there. This team has actually sold out every single home game since 1962! Now that’s pretty impressive. Don’t forget that you will stand out in Memorial Stadium if a giant corn hat is not adorned on top of your head. Also, don’t ever talk about Texas and the whole “Big 12” ordeal.
New York Jets Fans
Loud and crude but these fans know how to go with the flow. However, if you should say something negative to them about their team, and to their face, run. You’re going to need brain injury attorneys at your aide.
Seattle Seahawks Fans
Quite often these fans end up the butt of bandwagon jokes but they’re also longstanding fans of the great city of Seattle. The amount of noise that they produce at stadiums is legendary, seeing as how it forced the NFL to enforce a “noise” rule. Although these fans don’t always follow the rule and by always, we mean never.
