    Red Sox and Patriot's fan base has grown 43% since the year 2000. Bandwagon fans I tell ya.

    Oh and 54.6% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

    I think they really had a lot more support until this year with the cheating and running up the score.

    And it was sort of respectable in the past when they won without a bunch of superstars. This year they can't really say that.

    I honestly don't know a single Patriot fan.

    I know a couple. They're all bandwaggoners.

    Friends grew up in Massachusetts, but don't follow any sports. Pats started winning, then started outfitting their kids w/Pats gear.

    Another one is the epitome of a bandwagon fan. Liked the 49ers when they were winning. Liked the 'boys when they were winning. And now he's all on the Pats jock.

    In 2001 they had Super Bowl support at least, it was a tumultuous year and they were a heavy underdog with a 6th round pick behind center plus the media was riding the Rams as hard as the present day Pats and I for one was sick of the so-called "Greatest Show on Turf".

    So in that instance, for that moment I rooted for the Patriots and at the time found it appropo that a team called the Patriots won the Super Bowl under the circumstances of the time.

    After they went 8-8 promptly after the win I figured they had joined the pantheon of one year wonders but after their success was regained I've since gone back and marveled at the number of lucky breaks that have gone their way, truth be told they have been a good team but more than once they have been afforded impossible breaks with astonishing regularity.

    The tuck rule which was clearly a fumble, come to think of it Brady fumbles alot when hit, they would've been an early playoff exit otherwise.

    The 21 game win streak which the Colts could've ended after six had they not fumbled on their own two and ended the game.

    The 2003 AFC Championship where Ty Law got away with the same kind of things Deion Sanders did in the 1994 NFC Championship and ultimately changed the outcome of the contest accordingly.

    Since then alongside luck their very integrity has called into question their legitimacy and the influence that brought what I previously thought to be luck was perhaps something far more sinister.

    I said the same thing 2 weeks ago. You cannot be America's Team when 90% of all football fans do not like you and think you cheated.

    Yeah, I can see the SB support etc.

    But statistics dont mean very much. Don't know abut you guys but I have not cast my vote for favorite team and I dont think I saw it on the last census. Not sure how anyone can measure fan support.

    No team will ever have fans in every stadium as we do. If they do it will not be the Pats. Other than Brady and Lil Bill they are unrecognizable. Throw in Moss for a year.

    As far as hatred by jealous fans, they may rival us there. But thats not the proper definition of AT.

    I cheered the Pats on against GB in the Super Bowl, and against the Rams... but that was just because I wouldn't cheer for the other two teams.

    Otherwise, I hate them.

    Oh and when Ditka was saying that Emmitt was saying, "There's only one America's Team."

    i have hated the Pats for a very long time. mostly its been cause i hate almost all northeast teams in every sport cause of the idiotic fans and press up there. also the fact that the Pats never should have won the first one with the whole tuck rule crap. I was hoping the Rams would crush them but yea it didnt happen. now with the whole cheating thing and the NFL not doin really nothing about it makes me hate them even more than ever!

    All I can say is, lucky breaks, cheap calls, and a dang good kicker. Are the reasons they were winning before.

    My cousin is such a bandwagon fan he chose the Patriots as his team when they won their last super bowl, (he also had KC & Denver as his teams):banghead:

    Years passed and he let the patriots go cause he really never liked them in the first place. Now he has picked them again and let his other teams go apparently.:lmao: Bandwagon Fan to the Bone!
