Which fan base is sadder: the 2018 Vikings or the 2019 Saints?

Tough to tell!

Eagles fans will always remember how petty and sad Vikings fans were following Philadelphia’s 38-7 win over Minnesota in the 2018 NFC Championship Game.

But it appears Vikings fans might not be the saddest fan base anymore. Saints fans are giving them a real run for their money following New Orleans’ loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the 2019 NFC Championship Game.

To be fair, Saints fans have a much more legit gripe than Vikings fans did. NFL refs missed an obvious pass interference (and/or helmet-to-helmet penalty, take your pick) that likely would’ve allowed New Orleans to beat L.A. in regulation. Still, the Saints did have a very real opportunity to win that game in spite of poor officiating after getting the ball first in overtime. That is, until Drew Brees threw an interception.

Much like Vikings fans couldn’t get over losing to the Eagles, it’s clear that Saints fans can’t get over losing to the Rams. It’s almost like the fan bases were meant for each other. Let’s compare and contrast to determine fan base is the saddest.



So, what do you think?
