Over the course of a season, there can be many fanbases that annoy the rest of the league’s fans for a multitude of reasons. Whether it be by gloating after a fortuitous win or by complaining too much after a bad decision, every fanbase does this to an extent, causing other fans to take to social media to vent their frustration with that fanbase.

Because of this, Gambling.com decided to utilize Linkfluence to analyze the total amount of social media posts that have been made over the past year in which each fanbase is referred to as “annoying” in order to reveal the Most Annoying Fans in the NFL.
