Acceptance of the invevitable bandwagon fans

When you look at other teams that have had massive "random" bandwagon fans, most of them have already won super bowls.  I have a buddy that is still rooting for the 49ers because when he started watching football Joe Montana was their QB.  He's been in misery every year (which is funny to me) for the last decade.  Look at the Cowboys, and Steelers.  Both teams that I hate with a passion, but they racked up a massive amount of fans.  There are many reasons that people jump on a bandwagon.  One reason is a superbowl, and there are other reasons as well.  Maybe their state doesn't have an nfl team? And yes, look at the Green Bay Packers, as much as I hate to admit it they acquired many bandwagon fans in 97 because of the super bowl and because of Favre.  I'm ashamed to admit it but I have a signficant amount of Packers fans as friends, and there is a slice of that fan base that is furious at the Packers management, and find it difficult to still root for their team. 

  Every successful team, is loaded with bandwagon fans. A large percentage of them jumped on the ship for a reason.  Whether they're unhappy with their current team, or looking for a new team to root for, or there is one player that they're a big fan of.....it doesn't matter!  What matters is that the invevitable will happen.  Some people have voice concerns about it, however I believe that this is a process that happens to successful teams, and when the curtains close to this soap opera, some of the bandwagon fans may leave when Favre leaves.  However, my guess is that a sizable percentage of those fans will stick with the Vikings.  Especially if we win the superbowl.    In short, I feel we should welcome aboard anyone that wants to root for the Vikings, and whether they decide to stick with the team after #4 goes away remains to be seen, but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt because they're here for a reason.....whatever that reason may be.
