I guess telling the truth is retarded to those who defend bandwagon fans
Is this thread still going? I do not even bother reading it anymore. The first page just seems to repeat itself over and over.
I'm a Titan's fan when it comes to football but I'm going to feed the troll.
When it comes top baseball I guess I'm a bandwagoner. I used to follow the Washington Senators avidly, when they moved to Texas in 1971 I did not continue as a fan of baseball. 34 years later when a team came back to DC I became a Nationals fan.
The Texans average home game attendance has been around 70,000 since 2002 - I'm sure most of those fans followed other teams. Between the fans that attend those games and the fans that buy merchandise and show their support in other ways - thats a whole lot of bandwagoners.
TexasCowboy is overly upset because Jerry Jones p*ssed off a good number of fans with his Tom Landry fiasco. Those fans ditched the Cowboys because Jerry Jones is 180 degrees from Tom Landry/Tex Schramm. Jones took a respected, legendary coaching staff and front office and turned it into a media circus.
The anger over that situation has led to his warped and distorted view that you can never switch teams for any reason even if your team leaves your city for greener pastures. This twisted opinion goes to such fanatical lengths that it even purports that any fan of any expansion team is a "bandwagon jumper" unless they were never a fan of any team at any point in the past.
Let's remove ourselves from the context of this conversation for a minute and re-visit the real world. In the real world, bandwagon fans are fans who decide they are sick of losing and move to the flavor of the season. Now, if I called ANY Houston Texans fan a bandwagon jumper, would that make sense? Remember, we're talking about a team that has never had a winning season.
Ridiculous and laughable.
Ridiculous and laughable? that's a under statement if I
ever heard one, so just what is Ridiculous and laughable?
The fact you defend this bandwagoner and try and use the
warped logic of, Houstink didn't have a winning season yet
so they can't be bandwagoners. is pretty laughable and out
In sports, someone who selectively cheers for a particular team (Team A) not because he likes them or follows them faithfully, but only because another team (Team B) that he does not like, happens to be doing worse than Team A. This person then enjoys ridiculing fans of Team B, and often will claim that they have been "a fan forever", but only for the time being, because when Team B performs better than Team A, they then go back into hiding and remain silent.
if it quacks like a duck, waddles like a duck, and looks like a
It must be Houstink Texturds fans

A bandwagon fan is a phrase used among sports fans and sports writers to describe a fan that only roots for popular and successful sports franchises. This kind of fan is typically despised by fans who consider themselves "die-hard fans" . Other similar terms for bandwagon fans are fair-weather fans, fake fans, and disloyal fans.
A bandwagon fan, also called a "fair-weather fan" supports their team only when it is winning.  They will often ""jump" on and off the "bandwagon" of the teams having the most recent success in the major professional and college sports. They generally don't care if their adopted team has a bad season, or even a bad game, as they ultimately don't care too much about the team. Boston Herald sports columnist Tony Massarotti equates bandwagon fans to church patrons who show up only at Christmas.  Ali Hasnain of the Daily Utah Chronicle calls bandwagon fans, people (who) root for teams or players who they have no clue about. 
A bandwagon fan will often leave a game before completion should their adopted team be losing.
However just because a sports team wins frequently does not mean the team will have bandwagon fans. A team must not only win but must have dynamic and popular players to be on the team for successful bandwagon fandom. 
The prosecution rests
Wow... is English your first language? Seriously, if not, it would explain some things.
I hope he meant "pursecution".
I think "success" must have a different meaning in his world.
