FanSided released its Fandom 250 rankings Tuesday morning and Cleveland Browns fans made the list for the second straight year.

The Cleveland Browns are having another terrible season in 2017, but that doesn’t mean the fans have jumped ship just yet.

FanSided released its second annual Fandom 250 rankings this morning, and the Browns came in ranked No. 144 overall, and No. 12 in the NFL.

Remember, these rankings are done for fun so don’t get too upset about the fan base not being higher on the list, which was topped by Ohio State fans.

Some may see FirstEnergy Stadium rather empty on Sunday and declare Browns fans to be awful, but that is simply not the case. The team is awful and if anything, people not going is done to stick it to ownership more than a general lack of caring for the team. It’s also just too cold to go watch an 0-13 team.

Browns fans want nothing more than for the team to be good. Even four or five wins seems nice after this current 1-28 stretch.

I wrote the entry for the Browns for the Fandom 250, and I found myself referencing all the great things about being a Browns fan. From the tailgating in the Muni Lot to obsessing over the NFL Draft, most of the excitement about being a fan unfortunately doesn’t involve on-the-field results.

But the hope of change and success is what keeps fans coming back each and every year.

I strongly recommend checking out the Fandom 250 rankings in its entirety. There are fandoms you may not even know about that made the list, showing just how many fan bases of countless things there are in the world.

The Browns should continue to make this list every year, and hopefully it is not just because of loyalty through the bad times.
