For many fans, the price of admission is an invitation to send a message — to an opposing team, player, Oregon’s cheerleaders, and so on. I’ll wait a second for those of you weirdly attracted to blonde, Liza Minnelli-ish Eli Manning (you may have forgotten, Eli pulled a diva-move and refused to play for San Diego when he they drafted him, but the Chargers faithful clearly have not).

Just like we did last year, and the year before that, and the year before that, we’ve collected the greatest sports fan signs and listed them in no particular order. In this year’s edition, we’re very heavy on the #GameDaySigns submissions. These run the gamut from elaborate artistry to likening a conference to fecal matter. Not judging.
