Who has the greatest fans this Superbowl? I took to Twitter to get the answer. In honor of America’s greatest event, I give you the 2015 Super Bowl Fan Superlatives. Over 12K tweets were collected over the past week about Patriots and Seahawks fans. The tweets were analyzed so the world could see what people think of the fans. The results? Absolutely hilarious.
It turns out, very few had anything nice to say. Out of all the posts about Patriots fans, 97% were negative. Seattle 94% negative. In fact, not only are there a lot of negative comments, but they are brutal. According to Twitter, there are a lot of butt-hurt, cheating, scummy Patriots fans and just as many obnoxious, salty, fair-weather Seahawks fans.
Seattle fans win!
In the analysis, 22% called Patriots fans “the worst” while only 7% called Seahawks fans the worst. On the flip side, 7% called the Patriots fan”the best” but a whopping 18% called Seahawks fans “the best”.
Head To Head: Patriots vs. Seahawks Fans
The chart below shows the different categories of things people were saying. I simplified them. For example, someone may have called a fan a “moron” or “batshit” which would have ended up in the respective Dumb and Crazy categories. Yes, both of those are real examples (see below for more quotes).
New England Patriots Fans
Full disclaimer, I spent a lot of time living in Boston and only a few of my friends are like this. Then again, I’ve seen my fair share of bad Patriot tattoos and painful sports debates. If you’re a Patriots fan, turn back now.

If you’re a Seahawks Fan, now is your time to look away.
