Anyone who claims they are a "fan" of a particular sports team, even though they had no prior support for/interest in the team until that team started winning. These types of fans only show playoff interest, have probably never watched a regular season game, don't own any type of team merchandise, nor would they buy any.
Everyone in Cleveland became a bandwagon fan only after LeBron James got drafted and they made the playoffs.
