The San Diego Chargers fan base ranked as one of the NFL’s most loyal, so it was a sad day, indeed, when their team left for Los Angeles in 2017. After ten years, the team could not negotiate a local stadium contract. The newly minted Los Angeles Chargers undoubtedly miss the diehard support of those dedicated fans. To this end, a PR effort launched by owner Dean Spanos pleaded with the jilted fan base to support their “Southern California” franchise. But, after 53 years of cheering for their local team, heartbroken fans are calling it quits.
With local San Diego tattoo removal shops receiving an influx of bolt removal requests, and with tattoo parlors offering designs to disguise and alter bolt tatts, the fan base is clearly not taking the L.A. transition well.
Fire Coach Fox
This clever sign attracted lots of network cameras. Chicago’s WGN9 TV featured the fan’s plea in a story they ran about the Chicago Bears and their unpopular coach. The Bears fan base took to the Mozilla Firefox web browser logo to get their message across. It became a rallying cry to get rid of coach John Fox.
The fans won! After three seasons, Fox was ousted with a 14-34 record. In a prepared statement he said, “Thank you to all the players, coaches, the city of Chicago and Bears fans everywhere, your passion for the game and this team is unmatched in the NFL.” Fox is currently a former NFL coach, due, in part, to the passion of Chicagoans.
Endless Humiliation for the Los Angeles Chargers
Los Angeles Chargers owner, Dean Spanos, has racked up very few fans since he announced the team’s move to Los Angeles. On the other hand, he’s acquired quite a following from displeased San Diego Chargers fans. They will troll him every chance they get.
“Thanks, Dean.” Sarcasm alert! This fan is reminding people that Spanos is responsible for sending two future Hall of Famers, quarterback Philip Rivers and tight end Antonio Gates, to finish off their careers on a soccer field. At this point, the passing and receiving duo may never get the chance to be inducted. What could be more disrespectful?
Not Even Santa Claus Can Deliver a Bills Win
The Buffalo Bills have never won a Super Bowl. The team spent 18 years of the 21st century in a playoff drought effectively drying up any chance for a championship run. Yet the Bills have a fan base that is one of the most vibrant in the league. This despite the fact that Buffalo, New York is the most Northern (and most frigid) football town stateside.
So, in this winter wonderland, it makes sense that Santa might just come through due, at the very least, to proximity. He must see this plea first! And Buffalo Bills fans are so good all year! But, as we all know, sometimes Santa doesn’t come through for us.
So Right it Can’t Be Wrong
This young Minnesota Vikings fan better hope his Packers fans parents are all the way in Green Bay when they catch this image, that went viral during the Sunday matchup between the Vikings and the 49ers. The boy, proudly sporting a Kyle Rudolph jersey, will have to enlist the burly tight end to come to his defense if his parents happen to see how they were so brutally trolled by their kid.
On the other hand, this boy may already have all the backup he needs. Doesn’t that sign look suspiciously well-crafted? We may have a case of a higher power involved here. Do you think the work of Vikings' fans grandparents may be at hand here? Or, perhaps some aunts and uncles are in on the prank? The Vikings are a great team. They have made significant showings at the playoffs on a consistent basis. Can’t blame this proud fan for his pick.
