Study says Jets fans are a pretty angry bunch
If you follow the NFL closely, you know that the draft was last week, and you can find countless articles ranking how each team fared in picking their college players, with columnists and analysts giving out grades before the new players have even played a down.
A betting website, Gambling.com, used the social listening tool Linkfluence to analyze the social media reactions and posts on Twitter and Reddit of every fanbase in the NFL and calculate the average percentage of negative reactions each team has on social media since the beginning of the NFL draft.
In other words, they wanted to gauge fan reaction to their team’s draft and then ranked them based on how angry they were.
It turns out that Jets fans are pretty angry; Giants fans, not so much.
Jets fans are the ninth angriest fan base while the Giants are 15th.
The NFL’s angriest fans are in Tampa Bay based on the number of negative Twitter posts and negative Reddit posts. Cleveland is #2 and Carolina (who had the #1 pick in the draft) is 3rd. I guess the fans didn’t like the Bryce Young pick; you’d think they’d be happier.
Miami, Detroit, Minneapolis, Dallas, and Baltimore come next; then the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets come in at #9.
Philly fans must just like being angry, because even after numerous publications said the Eagles had the best draft, hands down, they’re still angry, coming in as the 11th angriest fan base.
A few spots later you’ll find fans of the G-Men; Giants fans are the 15th angriest.
BTW, the least angry fanbase is the LA Rams; I guess they’re too laid back to care.
