Alright, we all have seen them. They're pretty much everywhere. They're the homers of FanNation. Now, although we might just want to say, "Homer", I have noticed that there are many different types of homers. I have narrowed this down to 3 different types. Chances are, I'm going to get chewed out for this one (At least give it a chance Larry B and Cassidy), but here is the breakdown:

 The Realistic Homer

These are the types of homers we all love. They will stand by their team no matter how bad it gets (me being a Jets fan, I know this stuff). However, they stay realistic about things. They aren't the type to start proclaiming their team the greatest. They're not making continuous throwdowns about this team. They realize the truth- "We suck. But hey, we can live with it." They will be loyal to their team, but will be able to give credit where due.

Some examples of your Realistic Homer include: Wallace, Ef, Irish, Detroitfan, etc.

The Moderate Homer

Well, this is kinda a shady region. There is no clear line between this homer and the levels between it. It's all judgement. However, Moderate Homers are the type of homers that will say such things as, "We'll definitely win the division this year!" They will make a fair amount of TDs about their team; but typically, they know thier limits. You may like some of these, you may hate some of these. Anyways, these guys are dyhard fans (although slightly misinformed).

Some examples of your typical Moderator Homer: (Insert any Packersfan here), Tracy, Stecky, Cassidy

The Extremeist

*sigh*

These are the ones you're going to remember. They're dellusional half the time. They're the ones that are going to claim people are Gods, make rediculous statements, and usually back those statements up with, well, less than stellar arguments. Most of the time- you feel like you wanna kill them. Some of their statements are so rediculous, you can't help but laugh. Also, a list will be hard to compose due to the tendency for these guys to get themselves deleted. I actually like most of the Extremeist- but some...well, you get my point.

Some examples of your typical Extremeist: Larry B, Woodson, Larry B, Cassidy (at times), Larry B, that 12 year old Steelers fan that escapes my memory...did I mention Larry B?

Anyway, there you have it. The official breakdown of homerism. Any questions or comments, I really don't give a damn about, but your free to leave them.
