    Fans??...It's amazing to me................

    In my 5 years of living in Tampa/Clearwater I've only seen a handfull of Colts fans but ever since the SB i've seen so many Colts jerseys. A friend of mine the other day told me she saw everyone in a Colts jersey, she couldn't believe all the Colts fans in Tampa and I told her....uhhh no! Those are called Bandwagon fans! Has anyone else noticed the Colts stuff really coming out since they won the SB? I know everyone was a Steeler fan after the SB, I had people buying Steeler stuff who were not even football fans all year, good for us but I hate when people jump on a "winners" bandwagon. The only T-shirt, let me say that again T-shirt not jersey(only buy Steeler jerseys) I was going to buy was a Saints T-shirt if they got to SB but only shirts that the proceeds went back to the city of New Orleans as Reebok and Reggie Bush would donate.


    Thanks Steelers086 for my awesome signature!!!




    Thanks for the new avatar SteelerBee!

    The thing that shocked me was the day of the super bowl... we were out and about after church and I had never seen so much Bears crap in my entire life! I always see Steelers stuff around town all year long, license plate brackets, hats, shirts, jackets, stickers... but I never see Bears stuff or Colts! But on the day of the super bowl I felt like I was in Chicago and couldn't believe it! I haven't seen any Colts stuff but I haven't been out much since the super bowl

    I have to reply to this because I have a Steeler fan club and the requests to get in went up a great deal after our sb win. But many of them had been fans for years. I do believe though that many people are true fans for years and do not join clubs, etc until they get excited after so many wins. Like 2004 brought many out also.

    Yes, I agree there are the bandwagoners. We have club tee shirts with the est. 1997 on them and one of my members was telling me she was in the grocery store a few weeks after the sb win and had her BlackNGold Pride Club tee shirt on when this lady approached her to say, "I am glad to see you are not a bandwagoner."
    Peace & Yours in Black 'N Gold,

    Since I live in Cincy, jumping off and on the bandwagon is a weekly event to watch. Jerseys on and off...flags up and down.....magnets off and on cars....
