NFL Fans“Dawg Pound”

Even when they saw their franchise disappear when they moved to Baltimore in 1996, but have never reached the Super Sunday and though its biggest star Jim Brown played his last game over half a century ago, followers of the Cleveland Browns remain stoic in the “Dawg Pound” each season with the firm hope that someday things will get better.

Cleveland is a “loser” city par excellence in a sporting level, with the Cavaliers vacant shelves in the NBA, besides the Indians in MLB newest title was back in 1948; such is the need of success or a reference to the organization of the Browns they have retired the number 45 of Ernie Davis, runner who was called to be the successor to Jim Brown, but was diagnosed with leukemia in 1962 and the team uniform has never been donned in any competitive match.

The Raiders parallel universe

There is no other peculiar and colorful fan base as the Oakland Raiders. Any game in the Coliseum is the best excuse to let out the “character” they have inside and dress with black and silver motifs.

A franchise steeped in history, winning three Super Bowl rings, but for more than a decade has not been in the foreground; however, that does not stop the Raider Nation feed the spirit of Al Davis, John Madden, Ken Stabler, Marcus Allen and other legends to create a unique atmosphere in the stadium and show that the “pirates are ready to set sail again into pleasant waters “.

The Soldier field

Opened in 1924, the “cave” of the Chicago Bears is the oldest stadium in the NFL, but its age does not make it old, but a true temple of football, legends have passed through the gridiron test such as Dick Butkus and Mike Ditka, and one of the pioneers of the sport owners: George Halas.

Interestingly, in its 90 years of life, the Soldier Field has never hosted a Super Bowl match, because weather conditions in the city are the main impediment to celebrate the most important game of the year in winter.
