NFL Fan Emotions

Oakland Raiders fans aka "The Raider Nation". Always an interesting bunch


















Kind of ironic if you follow the NFL

U of Texas fans








Even Lance Armstrong took out time to Hook em'


Here's a college tradition for big upsets; tearing down the goal posts. In one famous incident, Texas Tech fans ripped down a goal post and rammed it into the Texas A&M fans.

I think it's a bit stupid to dress so much out, because it's a football match not a carneval. You don't see painted faces and all that very often anymore in european club football, only in national team football. But the real football fans are the club fans not the national team fans.

@ Rantanamo

Waahahaahahaah, those Raiders fans are hilarious. And I thought that Dutch national team supporters were already pretty stupid with their carnival-like outfits.

It looks like a bad GWAR rip-off...

That's just their style for some reason. Don't know why. Every team's fans seem to have their own thing in the NFL.

Wow, international recognition of one of our rivals. The Aggies are indeed very loud and have their weird Aggie traditions in order. If you want to hear constant yelling, chanting, and cheering all game, go to Kyle Field. Just don't step on the field or you'll get chased with a sword, LOL.



Despite all of that, consistency and tradition, I do think we(Texas) have a bigger, better fanbase. Every college thinks that, LOL

I love college football! The atmosphere is so much better than the NFL.

I think the team with the best atmosphere is Michigan. YOU CANT COMPETE WITH THE BIG HOUSE!

Just for pure atmosphere, its gotta be LSU, Tennessee or Ohio St. Florida in the 90s probably topped them all.

G!oRgOs,

NCAA (collegiate) athletics are more popular than professional sports in most parts of the States. Nearly every university in the nation has a NCAA team, although only 119 play Division One american football, which has a much higher talent level than other divisions. (Other sports are played, but american football is, by far, the most popular.)

The 119 Division One teams are divided between 11 conferences (8-12 teams per conference), set primarily by TV audiences and revenues. Schools of similiar size, popularity, and geographic region are usually in the same conference.

The rivalries and talent in NCAA sports creates an environment that is unparalleled in the United States and is truly unique worldwide.

Most US universities have both intramural and NCAA teams. Intramural teams are similiar to Club overseas. NCAA is actually closer to professional sports, although the athletes are not paid and must be enrolled in the university.

I hope that explains it. NCAA sports is a way of life over here. Some arenas (such as Louisiana State University's in Baton Rough, LA) have been known to get so loud during a game that they register as earthquakes on Richter scales miles away. It's that intense.

Florida, LSU, Ohio State are my picks.

Kyle Field can get quite loud, but the Aggies haven't had much to cheer for the past several years, so the environment has fallen off significantly.

LSU is just insane. Especially night games. You can't beat 90,000 drunk cajuns when looking for fans. Those guys get nuts and are LOUD.

Florida and OSU are both insane as well and can be some of the loudest in the nation at the right time.

Never been to Happy Valley.

My vote goes to LSU.

The Big House isn't loud at all, not because the fans aren't loud, but because the stadium doesn't hold sound in. It's size is impressive however.
