In an article published in USA TODAY, fans of the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns were named in the top ten in U.S. sports.
TEXAS, USA – Who do you think of when you are asked which fan bases are the most unbearable on the planet? I’m sure you can come up with a few.
Well, apparently, some fan bases in Texas have performed a feat to strike the nerves of the nation … or at least one writer.
USA TODAY published an opinion article on Friday listing the 10 worst fans in the sport.
Fans of the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns graced the list.
Here are the top ten fans in American sports, according to Mike Freeman of USA TODAY:
- Miami Heat fans
- Dallas Cowboys fans
- New England Patriots fans
- Boston Celtics fans
- Red Sox fans
- Fans of the St. Louis Cardinals
- Fans of the Golden State Warriors
- Football fans of the University of Texas
- Notre Dame football fans
- Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles.
In his article (let’s give him a favor, everyone) Freeman’s arguments about the location of cowboys and longhorns stem from a false sense of superiority, despite the lack of performance on the field.
Freeman’s comment on Longhorn Nation:
“Suffers from the same symptoms as Irish fans. They haven’t won a national football title since the 1800s. At least it seems so.”
For context, Irish Barbus Notre Dame says they are “behaving as if they are Alabama” even though they have not won a national championship for more than three decades. In the case of Texas, the last title was 2005.
Here are Freeman’s comments to Cowboy Nation:
“Fans of” Cowboys “in August: (Speaking to you in person)” This is our year! Back to the Super Bowl! ”“ Cowboys ”fans in December after dropping out of the playoffs: (Speaking from the other side of the room)“ I’m going to go and become an Eagles fan ”.
Until I wrote this, it never occurred to me that both fans were ironically identifying themselves. “[mascot] The nation.
I know one thing: either you read it and felt attacked, or you shout “Oh, yes.”
The passion of the fans for Cowboys and Longhorns is real, as is the steadfast position of irritation on the part of those who cannot stand them. Just check out the social media after the Cowboys / Longhorns win or lose … one of these crowds is very loud.
So only for this reason can Freeman think of something.
Another interesting note: overlapping teams from Boston.
Perhaps they should also feel attacked.
