A disgraceful sports 'fan' who roots for a particular team (usually one that has constant postseason success) but knows nothing about that team's history, players, coaching staff, etc. In fact, the 'fan' probably didn't give two shits about the particular team until they started winning. The bandwagon fan makes the established fanbase of a team look bad and is often seen flaunting New York Yankees hats, Miami Heat jerseys and/or Alabama Crimson Tide gear. A bandwagon fan is usually someone who fails at life and cannot think for him/herself.
Ex. 1)
True Fan: "I didn't know you liked the 49ers. You didn't root for them when Alex Smith was quarterback."
Bandwagon Fan: "What are you talking about? I was born in San Francisco!" (Lie)

Ex. 2)
Bandwagon Fan: "Hey did you see the Bruins win the Stanley Cup last night?!? Look at my dedication, I bought all this fan gear last week!"
True Fan: "You follow hockey?"

Bandwagon Fan*," Rodgers, Matthews, Woodson, I can't think of anyone else."

When a person decides to route for a team, not because they are faithful fans, but because it is the popular thing to to. Perhaps the team is winning, their friends are fans or they may be the team closest to their favorite mall. Either way, when you have never watched that specific sport your entire life, then you start posting things, repeatedly, about how you're so happy they've won, yet you can't name one player on the team. You are a bandwagon fan.
Like, OMG, the Giants just won! That guy with the long hair threw the ball really fast, yay! Bandwagon fan!

A person who becomes a fan of a sports team just cause they're the "newest hit" or "big thing". Also almost all of the Golden State Warrior fans. Want to be saying "Go Golden State!", Just because they're 23-0 and because they won the 2015 NBA Finals.
Real Fan: "Go Lakers!"
Bandwagon Fan" "Haha, Lakers suck. Kobe can't even make a three pointer. Go GOLDEN STATE!"
Real Fan: "At least I stick to my team you bandwagon faggot!"
