1.
In sports, someone who shamelessly cheers for a particular team not because he likes them or follows them faithfully, but only because that particular team is the "popular" choice or has been or is the top team in their specific sport recently. When that team which bandwagoners follow falls from grace, they gleefully jump on the next teams bandwagon and cheer for that team.
All Lakers fans are bandwagoners, ALL OF THEM, except maybe Jack Nicholson.

A fan of a particular sports team who had no previous interest in the team until they began winning. They often will claim that they have been "a fan forever." You must discredit them on every statement they make.
Ever since the Anaheim Angels won the World Series their baseball park is full of phony-ass bandwagon fans. That's why I root for the Dodgers.

5.
A fake fan. Wannabes who want to fit in with whatever's considered popular or hyped in order to gain attention and acceptance. They like something based on the majority of people's interests, not their own. Once that sports team or trend is no longer popular, they will follow whatever is currently considered "cool" or "popular".
bandwagoner: LAKERS ARE A JOKE! LETS GO HEAT!
