    which is their right, but if they sell on the interwebs they are just selling for $s


    either way.


    Purposefully high ticket prices combined with tons of capatilistic PSL owners means the vast majority of the Titan fanbase is, like yourself, glued too your layZboi

    You need great fan support (at the games) if you're going to win it all, so we need to get on that ASAP.

    Take a look at the teams with garbage fan support (Jags, Chargers, Bengals, Panthers, Texans, etc.). What do they have in common? No rings. We're right there with them, unfortunately. It's not that all fans suck, but as a whole the support at games is awful. Not hardcore enough here. No one cares about the Titans... especially outside of Nashville. It's an absolute joke in Knoxville. You'd think you're living in Indianapolis or Denver. ****ing Peyton fans. You think I became a Ravens fan when Steve McNair left? **** that garbage. Dumbest fan logic ever.

    And vice versa, if you take a look at the teams with rings, they generally have excellent fan support all the time... they don't allow opposing fans to take up half the stadium.

    I guess the bandwagon will prevail when we have a good team... and disappear once we don't. Just the way it'll always be here, I guess.

    it's a shame with how this works with bandwagon fans but it is the truth. I can't stand it myself, especially the fans that follow a player like peyton and not a specific team. How can you be a fan of one player? This is a team game! I wish I lived in TN so I could get season tix but I live far from it.

    F*** bandwagon fans that root for teams when they are good and move on, they are bloodthirsty savages that have no integrity when it comes to being a fan. I would rather sit in a stadium half full with die hard titans fans then a full stadium with bandwagon fans any day of the week.

    If I had the money, I'd buy from them and resell them to Titans fans only.

    Maybe one day I can do that if I'm incredibly lucky... Maybe I can start up a group (of current season ticket holders) and we can all pitch in to buy a ton of tickets and resell them to Titans fans.

    Whatever it takes.

    Case Keenum making his first start on the road against an undefeated team with the top rated defense in one of the league's loudest stadiums.I'd say his chances are nil to none of winning this weekend.Can't wait to see Houston slip further down in the standings.

    Yep. Tennessee in general has extremely fickle fans.

    The Preds fanbase and Memphis Grizz have good fanbases, but they somehow avoided it.

    For football, it's a joke.

    I remember when everyone was a UT fan. Like everywhere you looked.

    Now 1 out of 3 TN residents are Alabama fans.... how'd that happen? Oh. Bandwagon, of course.


    Back in 99-2002 Titans fan support was nuts. Flags, shirts, everywhere... mailboxes...

    Now? May see it every now and then. Very rare.

    And I get that we haven't been great- but we haven't been BAD.

    These fans would the death of teams like the Lions, Cleveland, etc.




    Lions fans, I love though. And the Lions. But I'm proud of that base.
