    Besides, we have never really been doing anything about people posting duplicate info within an existing thread; just new threads.
    It is much easier to spot a duplicate if it is a new thread than to sift through each thread tfor duplicate material.
    Also, a dup within a thread is not really taking any credit away for topic starters.

    Cowboys fans are total fair weather fans and they only follow the team when it starts winning. They should be lower.

    How can they rank the Lions and the Cardinals 31st and 32nd? both teams have delivered so little for so long it's surprising they have any fans left. That's the mark of a true fan IMO, to stand by your team even when things go bad on the field.

    That would be a hard list to make. It is hard to agree or disagree unless you have been to every stadium and seen the fans in action. And of coarse if your team is not number one, then people will argue. Good off season article though. Gives us, being the football world, something to talk about
    We're bringing purple back.

    The problem is that within an existing thread there is new information that pertains to that thread's overall content posted. Then a few hours up to a day later a person starts a new thread with a new title with the exact same information.

    Re: Viking Fans are pretty lousy! NFL's best fans? We gotta hand it to Steelers

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say that MN Fans as a whole aren't the best at anything.

    We have a very popular team and yet we can't sell out a 65,000ish stadium.
    (Yes Z I know all about the fake/pretend sellout record).

    We have a "Twin City" environment that can't seem to figure out how to fund a new stadium.

    Speaking of the stadium, have you been to any other stadium?
    I have been to 5 others.
    All of which put the Metrodome to shame.

    We have the biggest group of bandwagon jumpers of almost all of the teams.

    Do we have some very loyal fans.
    Hell yes, but don't all teams?
    It will be very interesting to watch the PUKERS if they slide back into the doldrums thier fans had to endure Pre-Lord Dickhead.
    The Deadskins, Eagles and Steelers all come to mind of teams that sucked for years and thier fans stood by them.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my team, and I love the fans that stick with the team, but MN Vikings fans are a fickle crowd my friends.

    (Marrdro stands by for the scathing comments.)

    Re: Viking Fans are pretty lousy! NFL's best fans? We gotta hand it to Steelers

    I'd have to hand it to the Steelers as well. Anywhere they play, there is a sea of their loyal fans in the crowd.

    I saw it happen twice in MN & one was a preseason game. There was a shitload of them there & most were very friendly.

    During the regular season when they played the Vikes, their numbers came close to the number of Packer fans we typically see.

    Wisconsin is right next door & we can understand why we see so many, but Pittsburgh is not right next door. I respect their fan base.

    I don't spit in their beers when they get up to go to the can like I do when I sit next to a Packers or Bears fan.

    Great. You are the reason I am getting kicked out this year. Thank a lot.
