    Auburn rarely sells out its 85,000 seat stadium ever during good times or bad. The place is a ghost town if Auburn is not doing well. Bryant-Denny is packed no matter what.

    But Barners are the most loyal fans? Sure. Makes sense to me.
    That doesn't necessarily prove that Bama fans are more loyal. Perhaps there are just more of us.

    It could also indicate that in today's economy, there's just not much disposable income left from a Waffle House chef's salary after paying for the double-wide, the tractor, and the boxed set of WWE videotapes. If they had a need for toothpaste, it would send them into financial ruin.

    I've always wonderd why they dont call it teethpaste, but i guess when it comes to aubren fans toothpaste is appropriate.

    Rasmussen reports Barn fans most loyal according to report.

    Whoever posted this reply was spot-on.

    You guys are right, I don’t understand it. I’ve been there, plenty of times, and still don’t get it. Much in the same way I didn’t understand the Branch Davidians, Scientology, or Heaven’s Gate. You people are weird and creepy as hell.

    It is not JUST about football down there.
    They really do have a cult mentality.
    They honestly believe attending college at a middle of the road state school is a mystical experience.

    And yes, I graduated from the University of Alabama, which I freely admit is another middle of the road state school. I love my alma mater. There is nothing wrong with that.
    But it is not a Church. It is a university.

    Auburn has simply the most delusional fanbase around. One way to gauge it is that PF Show is broadcast all over the nation and his show is designed to bring out the cookiest fans out there. By my count, Auburn has every other school beat 2-1 in this category.

    What I'm saying seems to have flown past all. I've seen AU's numbers on attendance, income and expense. They stink to high heaven and they're the ones supplying the numbers the "value" is based on to the WSJ, which is what the article is based on...

    i just dont understand articles like that. it's like the writer doesnt actually see this stuff in person. I live about 4 blocks from Jerdin Hair. at halftime of both the UGA and A&M games, it was like someone pulled a fire alarm.

    Don't know if that is right phrase or not, but pretty close. Sometimes I believe you can substitute survey for statistics in that phrase and the meaning will still be true in its intent.
    They used the statistics like a drunken man uses a lamp post. For support rather than illumination.

    It all makes sense now. I guess being delusional makes everything seem much more than what it really is!

    I guess you'd have to be loyal to stick with them with all the crud they go through with being the redheaded step child.
