I too am born and raised in Texas by the grace of God. More specifically born in Dallas.
I root for the Cowboys, Mavericks (even though NBA is crooked), Stars, and Rangers . . . Yes RANGERS. They Suck and are pissing me off with their transactions this off season, but I'm still a fan regardless.
IMO: This is the way it should be. If you're not a current or former resident of the city/area/state of a team you root for, then you
are the Bandwagoner. Why?? Tell me when you became a fan of the Packers? And I'll show you that their record was above .600 for that year/range.
Maybe it's because my family (majority) hasn't moved from Texas in over 120 years, or Dallas in 70 years.
But one of my grandfathers was born and raised in Minnesota . . . but I would never root for the Vikings, and that doesn't give me the right to either.

If it's not because of flags on cars, then what the hell is it???
You going to claim that everyone in DALLAS are bandwagoners because they only talk cowboys around the water cooler when they're good??? BULLSHIT. TOTAL BULLSHIT. Did you work in the same office during the Campo or Quincy years? They were still talking about the Cowboys, guaranteed.
Stand around the water cooler during the summer, I'll guarantee that someone will mention how much the Rangers SUCK!!! And because they suck, I didn't go to three games this last year when I was given the tickets for free!!! Does that make me a Bandwagoner??? FUCK NO. I didn't go to send a Message. As a REAL FAN, I want and deserve a better product on the field. I want the best players, and right now they are not providing that. I don't want to go to a game to watch them trip over their dicks all night long. Does that make me a Bandwagoner? And when they do put out a better product on the field, I'll go to games . . . I'll even pay for my tickets. Does that make me a Bandwagoner?
You're telling me that right now, the same people who you'll claim were Mavs Bandwagoners two years ago aren't talking about how much they're Sucking right now? BULLSHIT!!!!
You're so fucking stupid it's pathetic. YOU "think" everyone are bandwagoners because you hate hearing everyone talk about the team you dislike. Yet, you're in the city of said team you dislike!!!!
That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard.
By your definition, there are bandwagoners in Every town. You know there are Eagles Fans that live in Wisconsin that say the same thing about Packer Fans. Or Giants fans who live in Boston say the same thing about Pats fans. Cowboy fans that live in Denver that say the same thing about Bronco fans. So you're statement that Dallas is the worst is false.
This is why Bandwagoners do not exist in the city/area/state of the team. Fair Weather Fans, yes. But not Bandwagoners.
This is the worst "Sports Point" made by people.
Here's a Bandwagoner: an insurgence of USC shirts on thousands of people with no affiliation to the school or state conveniently the month after they win the MNC. That's a Bandwagoner.
And Women, they are bandwagoners by default.
