FanSided has released their annual Fandom 250 rankings, ranking the top fandoms across the world. Where do the Colts sit on the list?
Colts fans have always been very passionate about their team one way or the other. When they are good, they support them all the way through their playoff run. If they are bad, they want them to be bad enough to get a good draft pick.
But it looks like that fandom wasn’t enough to crack the #Fandom250. They were left off of the annual list published by FanSided. They were not even in the top 20 as far as NFL teams were concerned. The rankings were determined by five different criterion.
Those criteria were buzz, legacy, fanmanship, passion, and magnitude. Apparently, Colts fans did not score well enough in these areas to be mentioned in the #Fandom250. Is that a fair assessment of what Colts fans are like though?
Every fanbase has a segment of extremely passionate fans. But the number of fans is what likely made it so the Colts didn’t make this list. There aren’t a huge amount of fans of this team outside of Indiana. There are other teams who have massive followings everywhere.
I do disagree with this list however. I think the Colts warrant being one of the 250 fanbases in the world. Maybe they will be included in the list next year. But this could serve as motivation for Colts fans to show their fandom even more. And that would be a good thing for everybody.
