Green and gold fans strike again! Forbes magazine has named them the best fans in the NFL.
Forbes said they aren’t "ranking crazy" but instead showcasing the idea "that you only admit to crazy in a public space" when you have a gang just as wild behind you.
The business magazine gave some examples of Packer-crazed fans. Here's a few:
- Green Bay fan mixes up tradition and takes wife’s last name, Packer
- Green Wagner has six teeth implants that have the team’s helmet on them
- A priest took Sunday mass to his worshipers in the stadium parking lot during tailgating
- A fan takes his team to the grave with him by having a Packer themed funeral. Casket and all.
Forbes said they used specific criteria to determine who the NFL’s best fans are. They looked at hometown crowd reach, local television ratings, national television ratings, stadium attendance, merchandise sales, social media reach and monthly views on the team website.
So pat yourself on the back Packers fans, your dedication does not go unnoticed.
