What makes your team the best team to be a fan of?

Dunny, Lions: ” The Lion’s are the best team to be a fan of because they always give you hope. We have a very strong fan base, I mean who else can go 0-16 and still get people in the stands. We’ve been through it all with this team and as a group we are willing to go through even more just to taste that super bowl victory. Detroit is a football town, we just need that 1 season to show the world that this is the best team to be a fan of.”

Siddiqui, Vikings:” I would say it’s the history and tradition. They have been in Minnesota since 1961 and have always been a huge part of the community. Regardless of how many games they’d win or lose, they would always have players who are fun to watch (Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page, Cris Carter, Randy Moss, John Randle, Adrian Peterson, etc.) They have also always been very active in helping the community.

Being at the games is always fun and will be even better once they move into US Bank Stadium in 2016. The Metrodome was not a very good facility. The new stadium is going to be one of best in the NFL and will provide the fans and players a great atmosphere.”

Coleman, Bears: “If you like hard nose defense and a team that knows how to run the football. With multiple Football championship in the history of the NFL you choose The Bears.”

Engman, Packers: “The tradition and history. There is so much history behind the Packers. The story of how it came to be with Curly Lambeau. The rise of Vince Lombardi. The rebirth of greatness during the Wolf/Favre/Holmgren era, the examples are endless.

I’d also have to say the camaraderie among the fans. I’m not sure I’ve ever met two Packer fans that hated each other. The Packers fan base is like one giant family. But If our fan base was a stereotypical family member, then we’re the Uncle that’s passed out on the couch from drinking too much beer on Thanksgiving.”
