Why Do The Browns Have The Worst Fans in the AFC North? Two Words… Deshaun Watson

Ray Rauth Mar 18, 2023

Day three of our polls has wrapped up and the Cleveland Browns join the New England Patriots as the worst fans in the AFC. 

The Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers were neck and neck for a long time, but the Browns began to run away as the worst fans in the AFC North. Dean Blundell made it pretty clear why. 

My Vote – Browns 

I’m on the same page as Blundell and 47% of the voters. There isn’t a fan base in the AFC North that has left a bad taste in my mouth outside of the Dog Pound. Baltimore Ravens and Steelers fans can be a little annoying from time to time, but they’re just a passionate fanbase. I’ve never disliked any Cincinnati Bengals fan I’ve ever met. So, that leaves Cleveland fans. I used to think that the Dog Pound was the greatest fanbase in sports. However, after I watched Browns fans celebrate, embrace, and defend Deshaun Watson, it made me sick to my stomach. Some fans, like Criers own Lochlin Cross, walked away from the Dog Pound because of Deshaun Watson, and I have a lot of respect for him for doing that. Winning isn’t worth your morals, but Cleveland sold their souls for Deshaun Watson.

For our next poll we’re heading back to the NFC and I’ll be asking Twitter which North team has the worst fanbase; Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, or the Minnesota Vikings.
