Scoopex is a term used to describe someone who purports to be a football supporter but never in fact goes to a ground to watch a game. This sort of person will generally only have latched on to a team after a team's success in a cup competition and is a classic example of a glory hunter
. Armed with an armchair and a TV remote control, a Scoopex will watch his or her team on TV and actually believe they are supporting the team merely by pressing buttons.
A typical Scoopex will not support a local team, an example would be a Birmingham based person supporting a team in Liverpool. As this type of 'football supporter' does not have to travel, they will find themselves with a lot of spare time on their hands and this time is frequently used on Usenet or surfing the internet looking for porn
