All serious sports fans are delusional to some extent. Do you think that anyone put any rational thoughts into being a Winnipeg Jets or Charlotte Bobcats fan? No, of course not. They made that decision because they’re probably geographically close to that team’s city or liked the colors as a kid, or had a favorite gambling-addict uncle that took them out for ice cream when the Sooners covered the spread. So to create a list of delusional NFL fan bases is a bit of a fool’s errand. Common sense doesn’t factor into painting your face or putting a foam block of cheese on your head.
Interestingly, 97% of NFL fans throw their weight behind teams that won’t win the Super Bowl. And about 66% of fans support teams that have no earthly chance of winning a playoff game any given season. So let’s look past the stats and find the delusional fans that are fooling themselves for other reasons. Oh, and before everyone starts bitching about this list without actually knowing what the word “delusional” means, you can click here to find out.
