Rams Parade Draws Criticism

The Rams are the third Los Angeles team to win a championship since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the first to hold a victory parade as restrictions were still in place when the Lakers and Dodgers won their titles. Fans of the Rams — a team that has only called Los Angeles home since 2016 after relocating from St. Louis — didn’t appear too keen to show up. As Dan Lyons of noted, attendance for the parade paled in comparison to other recent Super Bowl celebrations.

“A fair share of Rams fans have turned out, though attendance looks sparse in spots. It definitely isn’t the madhouse that fans are accustomed to in other cities,” he wrote.

Pictures of the parade route drew some viral interest, with many other fans criticizing the fanbase. Bills fans seemed particularly miffed, with many predicting that their fans would have shown up in force had Buffalo won it all.

“It could be -6 degrees in Buffalo and the entire city will take off work to attend the parade when the Bills win the super bowl,” one person tweeted.

“I attend the LA Bills Backers and OC Bills Backers and yes combined we would have more at the parade then the Rams do now,” another tweeted.

Bills Fans Showed up to Support Team

As many Bills fans noted, their fanbase has made a habit of greeting the team at the Buffalo airport after big games — wins and losses alike. The tradition largely started on New Year’s Eve in 2017, when the Bills ended their playoff drought in a dramatic season finale that included a win over the Miami Dolphins and a last-second victory from the Cincinnati Bengals that got the Bills into the playoffs.

The tradition continued in the years that followed, with many fans waiting until close to 3 a.m. to greet the team after the loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in this year’s divisional round. As Buffalo’s WGRZ noted, the heartbroken fans said they wanted to be there to show support for the team.

“The only thing that I can expect different today was a win,” fan Matt Mootz told the news outlet. “It’s disappointing, but we’re still out here in droves and we’re still waiting for our team. So let’s go Buffalo.”

While the response in Los Angeles drew scorn, many Bills fans were more impressed with the attendance for the Cincinnati Bengals’ homecoming. Crowds of Bengals fans packed together at the airport to welcome their team back after their loss on Sunday.
