Throughout the halls of EHS, the amount of bright orange and blue Bronco jerseys with the number 18 or 58 on them have drastically increased since the 2011-2012 NFL season. Since the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning and the consecutive wins have been stacking up, the fans been stacking up as well.
“The amount of Bronco fans has definitely gotten bigger since they have been dominating lately. Especially now that we have a genius as a quarterback, Peyton, he has put Denver back on the map. But, because of the success of the Broncos, there is definitely a lot more bandwagons here in Englewood,” Ric Scott Neff (11) said.
Without success, the numbers would decrease. Every NFL football season, fans increase or decrease depending on the success of a team. True fans are those who stay with their team through thick and thin. Bandwagons are not really liked by true fans. In fact, they might be titled as “annoying” or “posers”.
There are many conflicts between fans simply because of people that hop on the bandwagon whenever a team does well. The concern is whether or not they will stick with the team even through the rough spots.
