Anyone who claims they are a "fan" of a particular sports team, even though they had no prior support for/interest in the team until that team started winning. These types of fans only show playoff interest, have probably never watched a regular season game, don't own any type of team merchandise, nor would they buy any.

Whenever a region's sports team suddenly gets really good really quickly, everyone and their fucking dog either buys a sports jersey or takes their old one out of the closet where it's been for 20 years, proclaiming they are a diehard fan. Bandwagon fans usually flock to their team's games in large numbers and usually constitute 80% of that team's fanbase. See Florida Gators.
