It is much easier to watch these games at home on your 70" flat panel HD TV, while eating your dinner -in the comfort of your home. Players like DH and the Beard make these fans spring for the cash to see a few more games in person, but again that is not necessarily a measurement of bandwagon-ness.
short of asking every person in the city who their team is...there isn't any true way of finding out who's a bandwagnoner & who's not.....but fan attendance at games does speak to it though. besides, what you say can be extrapolated to every professional team..
Jags team owner: "yeah, this city is behind us fully, they love us.....We just put those tarps up in the stands b/c we wanted to make sure all our fans watching at home could get a good view of our newly designed team logo.."....
