Poll Results

If we're going to praise the super fans, then we're obligated to ridicule the far-less-than-super fans.

So, take a look at our list of bad actors, boors and suspicious supporters, then vote for the worst of the lot at left.

Daredevil Royals fan

Michael Orchlin, 22, won a $400 bet for jumping 12 feet onto the turf at Kauffman Stadium on May 3. Trouble is, he also suffered a compound fracture of his ankle and faces a possible $1,000 fine.

Penalty-box diving Flyers fan

Tie Domi said he squirted water at fans behind the First Union Center penalty box because they were throwing things at him. Little did he know the next thing to fall on him would be 36-year-old Chris Falcone, who said he was just trying to swat the water bottle out of Domi's hands.

Out-of-the-owner's-box fan

Yes, we admire the way passionate Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has shook up the league. But let's stay off the court and cut out the tirades that disrupt the game.

Oakland A's right-field fans

Seattle Mariners right-fielder Ichiro Suzuki was struck in the head by quarters thrown from the stands by fans at Network Associates Coliseum on April 10. To paraphrase former Bengals coach Sam Wyche, "Come on, people. You don't live in Cleveland!"

Minnesota Twins' left-field fans

"Come on, people. You don't live in Oakland!" Chuck Knoblauch was traded from the Twins to the Yankees in 1998, but some still can't get over it. On May 2, some Twins fans threw golf balls, hot dogs and plastic beer bottles at the Yankees left fielder.
