    Parts of what you said are unfair.

    Unfortunately I live on the West Coast of Canada (Vancouver) My dad was a Bronco's fan, first game I remember watching was the SB against the Pack and I remember wanting to root against my dad, been a fan ever since. Having no local team, and seeing other games more often than Seahawk games kind of spread it. I've had Packer gear since then, and have worn it proudly all year round. I've missed my own sporting events to watch Packer games, I ordered NFL Sunday Ticket solely for the Pack, I can easily rattle off any player on our 52 man roster and know a lot about the history. Everyone becomes a fan for a reason, mines just different.

    Well, this bandwagoner cannot wait for tomorrow evening - (it'll be a 9.30pm kick-off for us UK fans).

    From the various criteria listed on this thread in various places I suppose I will have to wear my bandwagon badge - but I will do so with immense pride.

    In England there is a rather popular football (sorry, I mean soccer) team called Manchester United. Personally I do not like them. At all. Anyway, the vast majority of Man Utd fans have never even been to the city of Manchester, never mind to Old Trafford the stadium where their team play.

    I live around 4,000 miles from Green Bay - hardly a local, then - but I HAVE been to Lambeau Field. It was a few years back and myself and a friend flew to the US specifically for the game. Ok, we lost a MNF game to the Vikings, but it is among my most treasured memories, and always will be.

    Having been a Packer fan since 1982 I have stuck with them through thick and thin, and I am simply loving what we have right now.

    Why not hop on the Packers bandwagon and let the Pack be your #1 team?

    You can't name 5 players on the team, specifically on Defense.
    You can't name a coach other than McCarthy.
    You go to church and don't know how to work a DVR/VCR
    You have the money, but don't have a jersey.
    You don't know who our last draft picks are.
    LTF will like this one: You only post when we lose.
    You still want Favre to come back.
    You don't know who the owner is. :cool:

    I know people that are casual fans of teams but does that make them a bandwagon fan? What I mean by casual is that they don't know much of the details like diehard fans do but they still support the team and represent with gear, etc. Just because they are not constantly talking about every detail and stat doesn't make them a bandwagon fan IMO. You have to admit that diehard fans are a different breed.

    We'd say fairweather, but they show up any time we lose to complain too

    Those first two are irrelevant really. For instance I never knew this forum existed until last week, and once I knew I still had a heck of a time locating a Packer fan forum that was active and not choked full of spammers. As for the location of residence, lol really? I've met a few people born outside the WI borders who are just as dedicated fans as anyone else inside the WI border. As for me I was born in La Crosse WI, and my life has taken me to numerous destenations since I them. Through it all I have bled Green and Gold

    IMO there is only one determineing factor of Bandwagon fans. That is: they are if they became a fan of the team during a Super Bowl run or a really dominant regular season preformance, that happened relatively recently. Basically, if you became a fan of the Pack within the last 2 years; I've got some bad news for ya.
