Here's five off top of head reasons why, if you are all Vol but don't have that NFL team to root for, you should join the Monsters of the Midway over the Atlanta Falcons. Let's spend a few moments to break this down.
1. MIKE DITKA IS A MAN'S MAN.
2. FAN BASE
The Chicago Bears are one of the best fan bases in professional sports. The Bears fan base mimics the loyalty of the Tennessee fan base. Emory Sports Marketing conducted a study of the best NFL fan bases and do you see the Falcons anywhere? Hell no! Bears don't need to pump crowd noise in the stadium unlike the cheating Falcons who were fined $350,000, and must forfeit their fifth-round selection in the 2016 draft.
"The Bears nabbed the sixth spot in the “NFL Fan Equity” rankings, per research done by Emory Sports Marketing Analytics. Fan equity is “a measure of brand equity that is based on fans willingness to financially support their team,” Emory Sports explained. Ranking in the top five, in order, were the Cowboys, Patriots, Jets, Giants and Colts" -Emory Sports Marketing Analytics
"Atlanta Falcon fans are nearly the least supportive and least loyal in the entire NFL. An annual study from Atlanta-based Emory University Sports Marketing Analytics ranks the Falcons 31st out of 32 teams in the league in terms of fan support."

The worst thing about the Atlanta Falcon fan base is that if you put them next to a Georgia Bulldog fan, they look identical.
3. BEARS 14-12 ALL TIME RECORD VS. FALCONS (Bears spanking that ass since 1966)
4. FRANCHISE'S BEST PLAYER
WALTER PAYTON was the NFL's all-time leader in rushing yards and all-purpose yards prior to the 2002 NFL season.
5. TEAM DANCE
When you have one of the best and most dominate teams of all time together dancing in a video, there shouldn't be a debate
