Fans I can't stand

Tonight, #1 Notre Dame and #2 Alabama lock up in the "What Fans do I Despise the Least" Bowl, or what most fans know it as, (the soon to be defunct in a 2-team format) National Championship Game.  Anyway, I will be cheering for Alabama.  This pains me.  It's like someone is forcing me to pick between the Cubs or the Cardinals, Michigan or Ohio State, or (if I was a Packer fan) Chicago or Minnesota. 

Credit to my guy Doug Russell of WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee who posed this question on facebook which I (and probably everyone else in Wisconsin Sports Radio) will be turning into a show topic.  "What fans do you despise the most?"  Annoying, stubborn, uneducated, or whatever you want to the reason to be, you be the judge.

Here are my Top 5 in order:

#1.) Notre Dame Football - I have never understood the fascination with the Golden Domes.  I get it, they were once really really good.  I was 12 years-old.  That was 19-years ago.  I can't stand watching them on TV and the high brown notion that their independent status brings.  Can't stand them.

#2.) SEC Football - I am being very vague in the category label, but people outside of SEC know exactly what I mean.  Yes, the SEC is the best conference in college football.  This does not mean they are a step ABOVE the NCAA like fans think.  Unfortunately, the SEC does rule college football so it's a matter of getting use to it.

#3.) St. Louis Cardinals Fans - One word: hypocritical.  Seriously, they judge EVERYTHING other fans/teams/coaches do but have no clue that their team does the exact same things!  Also, let people decide who are the most traditional fans in baseball, you don't need to tell people.

#4.) Soccer Fans - I don't care about your sport.  I don't want to care about your sport.  I never will care about your sport.  Move to Europe.

#5.) Boston Red Sox Fans - Everything they hate about Yankee fans, they are...and then some.  Over the last 10-years, they have been shooting up the charts faster than M.C Hammer fell off them!

By the way; I don't "despise" people in a literal sense, but in a sports world sense you should get my drift...It's exactly why I love sports, conversations such as this.

By the way #2; I left out specific groups of in-state sports fans on purpose.  Maybe I can go there another day.
