About a week ago, I introduced a three part series, brought to us by Guinness. They asked who were the BOLDEST fans of (1) the Miami Dolphins and (2) The Phinsider. In this, the second part of the series, we will take a look at the boldest Miami Dolphins fans.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at the DolFan Bandits. I know all of you have seen these guys during games, either on TV or live at the stadium. They've been spotlighted on ESPN, they're known to the players, and they are always there.
According to their website, dolfanbandits.com, they got their season tickets in 2007, just in time to be there for the 1-15 season. Yet, they were there every game, demonstrating their love for a team that couldn't seem to win anything.
From their website:
After restructuring, the Miami Dolphins made a superb transformation in 2008, making it to the playoffs! We wanted to thank them and also give the Team and the Dol-Fans a NEW LOOK !!! For the New Era!!! A New Team!!! A New Beginning!!! So we decided to spice things up by attending the playoff game against the Ravens with our bodies painted with the team logo, some of us even had aqua and orange skulls on our faces to pump up the volume. Although the Dolphins may have lost to the Ravens that day, the team and it's fans won in the NFL community, by proving that the Dolphins may have been down, but they were far from out!
These guys have been traveling to the away games ever since. They are always there at the home games. They are always painted and ready to go. From chewing on helmets, to yelling at refs, the DolFan Bandits are clearly, the boldest fans at each and every Miami Dolphins game.
