All fans get emotional to a degree in all sports. It's not just football. There may be a little more emotion in American Football because there are less games than the other major sports and it is only played once a week. ... So all that anticipation for the next game builds up unlike it does in thr other 3 sports.
When your fans' emotions are game-based, they're likely elicited by the game itself, the overall season, the play calling, etc. These fans are more likely to talk about their teams biggest win – or most disappointing loss – as a cause of their emotional response.
The dangers of professional football is a hot topic. Studies have found high rates of concussions, traumatic brain injuries, and a serious brain disorder called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) in former players. These injuries can have terribly debilitating effects.
