The Chive's 15 NFL Teams With the Most Annoying Fans and Where Denver Finishes


Apparently many of the NFL's best fans can also be the most annoying.

That goes for supporters of your Denver Broncos, too — even the Peyton Manning fans who resisted ripping doubters after Denver's incredible win over the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday.

Last year, we shared Forbes' roster of the ten NFL teams with the best fans, in which Broncos boosters did very, very well.

Then we stumbled upon a new list of the teams with the most annoying fans as ranked by votes from visitors to theCHIVE. And lo and behold, nine of the teams with the best fans were included among the fifteen squads whose loyalists scored highest in being irritating — including the Broncos.
