If you have ever been to a football game, you have most likely noticed the different kinds of fans. It doesn’t matter what level of football you are watching, there are fans that range anywhere from the quite traditional guys to the die-hard guys who overdress and paint their faces and bodies. Fans for all sports, especially football, all have different ways to cheer on their team but one thing is clear and that is that they love their sport.
The Traditionalist is probably the most common sports fan that you might hear about and/or see. With the traditionalist, when it comes to game day they will sit down and watch the game and root on their team, but won’t get too crazy. They might wear a shirt or jersey but won’t go over the top with the

They’re usually the ones who are on TV commercials and that the broadcasters at the games single out. Usually on game day for Die-Hard fans, if they aren’t tailgating and having a good time at the game, they are at their house or even at a friend’s house and they are usually head to toe in their team’s game day gear. Some people will have anything from just a jersey to face paint and props to go with their outfit. And they almost always have friends that are Die-Hard fans too and on game day they will usually have a party or at least invite people over to watch the game to eat and drink and hangout. For Die-Hard fans, pretty much every game is treated with the same respect and attention as the superbowl. When I think of Die-Hard sports fans, I mostly think of the Oakland Raiders fans. Raiders fans do some pretty wild things sometimes and dress to match. For Die-Hard fans, their sport most definitely comes first before all other things.

If they are either at the game or watching it from their couch, most Die-Hards won’t dare get up while the game is playing. Even if they have to use the restroom or something, they will not get up because they don’t want to miss any of the action.

Their sport most definitely comes first before other things because they are always checking to see if their fantasy players are injured or making plays out on the field. These fans will always have their phones in their hands now-a-days because that’s the easiest way to check that stuff and it becomes very addicting. Fantasy guys might not always sit down and watch the game, but they are always very into it and always thinking about it. As I said before, in today’s day and age, you can watch the game keep track of all the stats anywhere you want with all these new smart phones.
