    The discussion in the thread about camping out for Titan Tickets has made me want to ask.

    What do YOU think makes someone a diehard Titan fan?

    Is it Camping out for a week to get tickets? Giving up a weeks pay, air conditioning and a week of your life?

    Do you have to buy a 34' school bus and decorate it with Titan colored paint and logos then drive it to every game and tailgate out of it?

    Do you have to go to every Home Titan game.

    Or do you have to go to the away games too?

    Do you have to be a PSL holder?

    Do you have to paint your face at the games

    Do you have to have more than 500 posts on your favorite Titan forum?

    Do you have to have the last 3 years of games saved on your Tivo?

    Do you have to start your own Titan fan site like Jeff?

    Or do you have to do all of the above?

    You decide and post below

    he camps out
  4. Post counts don't mean much in terms of diehard fan. I've got more than Gut, and well you know....................

    To be a dierhard fan, for me, would be to go to all the away games.

    adding a few more questions:
    Can fans that don't live in the US ever qualify as diehard?
    What about Titans fans in the US that don't live in the Tenn area - can they ever be diehard

    I consider myself diehard.

    I travel over 6 hours round trip for every home game.

    If I'm not at the game, I'm watching on TV.

    My most prized possession is a Super Bowl 34 mini helmet signed by K Dyse, A Dyse, McNair, and Kearse.

    If the Titans lose on Sunday, I come to work pissed off on Monday.

    My son's 3 month baby pictures were taken in his first Titans pajamas.

    He could say "Ti-see Ti-tans" before he he could say "juice please."

    I own more jerseys of players no longer on the team than current ones.

    When the Titans were in the Super Bowl, I drove to Atlanta just to go to fan fare, then drove back home... in an ice storm.

    I haven't had a car, truck, motorcycle or boat in almost 10 years that hasn't had a Titans bumper sticker on it.

    The wall in my office is covered with Titans art work and memorabilia.

    I go to training camp nearly every year and stand in the heat for hours just to get a Titans fix in the summer.

    I'd have more luck at remembering Keith Bulluck's birthday than my grandmother's.

    I'm naming my next dog Bud. Take that as you will...

    I spend more time reading about the Titans before 9am than most people do all day.

    If I could find a good job in Nashville, I'd probably move there just to make it easier to get to games.

    Hey broken record
    Where do you drive from?
  8. Just to clarify, I am not a DIEHARD Titan fan.

    I think that would be impossible, I've never seen the Titans play at LP Field or anywhere

    Knoxville, which is usually a little under 3 hours each way, but with game day traffic it stretches out a little.

    I consider myself a Die hard fan even though I've been told repeatedly on this and the "official" forum that I'm not
    I have been to EVERY home Titan game. A few away games
    I too drive 3 hours to every home game, but i do it in me and my brothers 34' titan bus <img src="http://flameheads.com/Flamehead%20Pix/images/1.jpg">pictured here. That usually costs us about $185 in fuel round trip
    I dress up every game, Home, TV or away game (see my avatar) and have been doing so since 1999
    I enjoy every game i go to even when we lose. Although I enjoy the wins a lot more. I have NEVER left a game before the clock hits zero. I repeat NEVER. Hence i was one of the 20,000 or so that "Really" witnessed the Music city Miracle.
    I've camped out for titan tickets every year since the 2000 playoff tickets went on sale. Ihave plenty of money so it has nothing to do with that
    I LOVE doing it because I love the Titans
    I recently bought PSL's It took me all these years because I wanted certain seats 5 rows from the field. and now they're mine for life!

    I absolutely hate the ravens and wouldn't root for them to win ANY game even if Steve McNair Eddie George Jeff Fisher and Bruce Mathews all joined the team!

    I own Titan plates on all of my cars and on my buss

    I've been reading this forum for several years even though I only recently began posting here

    with all that said I don't think you have to do all of that to be a Diehard fan.
