Default What Type of Fan is Worse

The insufferable homer - someone who defends and makes excuses for anything and everything their team does, even if there's no basis for defense. They are unrealistic about everything that pertains to their teams.

OR

The pessimistic fan - Completely overreacts and bashes everything their team does, during the weekly game threads they make insane comments about how bad their team is and calls for the coach to be fired after one bad play or game, and bashes every move the organization makes make (like that Saints/LSU fan Johnny Jones)

Personally, #2 is far more annoying to me, but we have these both of these types of fans in the Football Forum, so which is more annoying?

The second one def.

At the end of the day, if you're not having fun or enjoy being a fan of your team and watching them, what's the point? Not saying you abandon your team for good but damn, take some time off if they affect your mental that badly when they suck.

easily the pessimistic fan...that is Randy Quaid in the movie Major League...just a massive Debby Downer

most fans have some degree of homerism in them and it isn't that hard to look past it...the overly negative fans will talk shit about their own team all the way up till they win a ring and THEN they will act as though they were behind the team all the way

Lots of Cowboy fans like that too...if Jerry ever did happen to win another ring he would have over 50% of his own fan base eating crow (but they would just pretend they were behind him all along OR they would find a way to give credit to someone else)

The "Homer" sports fan. As a Bengals fan, I watch and support, but I'm pretty pessimistic. We get a lot of fans who defend Marvin Lewis, saying he's turned us around and made us into a relevant team. Those fans will chide the rest of us for having the "audacity" to be negative. With no playoff wins under him in a decade plus, and none period since 1991, I don't want to hear that.

Number 2.
At least homers have a sense of loyalty, will support the team financially, and continue to support through loses.

Pessimists have a "prove it to me" attitude or I love this team....but only if we are winning attitude.

They both suck

Homers don't live in reality, and they serve as co-dependents to poor management of their teams.. They help enable teams to continue stealing their money and giving a half ass effort..


Pessimists suck because they ride a rollercoaster of emotion. When the team wins? hell yeah they are the main ones screaming about 'living or dying" with a team, or "bleeding" whatever colors the team has on its jersey.. But the slightest mistake, and they go on a endless tirade about how everyone sucks and how we will never win because it is fate that we will always lose.. It is really tiring

I probably find #2 more annoying because the city of Pittsburgh becomes insufferable after a Steelers loss. I can be a bit of #2 when it comes to Pitt basketball but only because it has been drilled into me over the past 10 years of March disappointments.

Browns fans are all both homers and pessimists.
