A person who has very little understanding of a sport, and thinks that he can make up this lack of understanding with a great knowledge of irrelevant, unnecessary statistics. Instead of actually watching "his team's" games, or ever attempting to play the sport, this person spends a great deal of time on the internet looking up ridiculous statistics. So while this person has the ability to recall a great deal of stats, he is still for the most part ignorant and not a real fan, just an internet fan. When real fans are actually discussing the sport, an internet fan usually butts in with some irrelevant statistics thinking he will sound smart, but really sounds like a jackass, and a straight up noob. Similar to a Sport Snob, but with less understanding of the game and even more of a tool.
Dude 1 : Chris Paul is looking like a stud this year
Dude 2: Yeah he runs that pick and roll so sweet. I see his shot has come a long way as well. He could very well be the best point guard in the league
Internet fan: No way. He is a career 35% three point shooter and his 2.6 turnovers per game stat is troubling.
Dude 1/2: Dude you're just a fuckin internet fan
