1. A "Fan" who only roots for the winning team.
2. A Fake Fan

Myth: Front Runners Only Like Yankees, Patriots, Heat, Bulls, etc
Fact: Believing the myth is basically saying, people from the NY, NE (MASS,NH,VE, MA) are all front runners.

Myth: Front Runners claim that they were "always fans"
Fact: Ask them a simple question like names of 5 players or starters for positions and their answer will reflect what they really are.

Front Runner: Switches their "Favorite" team within 3 years or less.
Fan: Always 1 team for life

Front Runner: Can only name 1-3 players (normally the famous ones)
Fan: Can Name pretty much the whole roster along with player numbers etc.

Front Runner: Never Watches the Games except for championships
Fan: Watches all the Games and actually remembers key highlights.
Actual Conversation with a Front Runner

ME: Yea, could have been better if the Pats won
ME: You a Giants Fan?
ME: Yea, well Giants didnt get that 96 yrd drive or a brilliant QB.
FR: I dont Care! Giants WON!!!!
ME:*Suspecting a Front Runner* What was the final score?
FR: I dont Care! Giants WON!!!!
ME: Name 5 players on the Giants and give numbers.
FR: Eli Manning, 10. Hakeem Nicks, dont care. Bradshaw, dont know. Cruz, dont know.
ME: You dont watch Football do you?
FR: To be honest I only root for NY Teams. I Like the Giants, Jets <----WTF???---->Yankees, and Mets.
ME: Wow...even more pathetic than the average Giants Fan.

in boxing, a frontrunner is the word used by p4p king floyd mayweather jr that means a boxer starts good in the beginning rounds but then he gets tired reaching the end later rounds.

he used the word in the 2006 fight v.s zab judah interview.
