TALE OF THE TAPE

Which Football Fans Are More Tolerable? New York Jets Fans Vs. New England Patriots Fans

Last week, the Jets stifled the New England Patriots – something that wasn’t entirely unfamiliar in the Rex Ryan era. But after the game, things got nasty when a bunch of Jets fans and a bunch of Pats fans started throwing punches. Now, if you quizzed a number of NFL fans on who they’d prefer to win, they’d probably say “the meteor” because they hate both teams, but here at tale of the tape, we’re a little more even-handed. So who’s more tolerable: Jets fans or Pats fans? Let’s go to the tape.

Winner New England Patriots
5 out of 6

Edging out the Jets by a scarce 5-4 margin, the Patriots - just barely - take home the trophy of “more tolerable fans...sort of.” Of course, I myself am a Patriots fan, so I was never going to let New York take this, because I’m petty like that. Go Pats!
