Default 'Who Dey' just went away

I moved to Ohio from SoCal in Sept. of 05. In 05 and 06, I was exposed to something I had never encountered in Cal. That would be, the silly ass Who Dey chants. When I first heard the song, I was sure it was someone making fun of the Bungles. Then I found out it was actually some sort of battle cry. Anyway, a funny thing has happened this year. Who Dey just went away Bungles fans now only want to talk Buckeyes football now. And now I have encountered something new. Browns fan coming out of the wood work. I had never met a Browns fan in Ohio until just 4 or 5 weeks ago. Never saw a jersey. Maybe one or two hats. But now they are all over the place. My question is to my fellow Ohio Steeler fans. Has it always been like this( fair wheather fans in Ohio)?

Welcome to the Buckeye State!!!

Bungle fans are tired of having their stupid question answered by "everybody"! College sports are huge in Cinci because the Bungles have sucked for so long. And Browns fans are............well Browns fans. They are fiercely loyal but tend to hide in the closet until they start winning. Most bungles fans have a spare Colts or Patriots jersey waiting in the wings.

The one constant in Ohio still remains us Steelers fans. The ring thing or a We Dey will stop a Bungles or Browns fan every time time.

The Browns fans in my part of the state are fairly consist. If they're anything they're pretty loyal. Now the few Bengals fans iin the area reall like to jump around. Haven't heard much Bengal smack this year.

They'll only come out if they win.

I'm obviously not a Steelers fan... and I despise the Browns. I live in the heart of Browns country ... 50 miles south of Cleveland, and somewhat in Bengals country...150 miles or so from Cinci. I can tell you that the Browns fans I know are very loyal... they are just so tired of losing that they just don't get too excited anymore.

This year has been good for them... understandably so. I just roll with their entusiasm, because if ever a franchise deserved some good karma, its the Browns.

The bengals don't have anywhere close to the amount of fans the Browns have... or the Steelers for that matter, where I live. It has always seemed strange to me that the Bengals have so few fans... even in their own state.

Anyway, I give all the Browns fans a pass this year... and just let them crow a little... they've waited a long time for this.

i gotta agree with you. I think that's why I have a bigger tolerance for the browns over the bengals. Browns fans are not bandwagon hoppers and love their team just as we love our steelers. By the way s&b congrats on your two game winning streak

Hey, thanks. It feels great to get back to back wins in our division. I almost forgot what winning feels like. The past 4.5 years have been reall hard on an old Raider dog like me... I'm not used to losing like that! Hopefully we have turned the corner and are on our way back... time will tell.
