Niner fans, what is your equivalent to the "chop"?


Simple question: Chiefs fan do the tomahawk chop.

What do Niner fans do?

Things like the Tomahawk Chop aren't as popular as you might think.

What do Cowboys fans do? Patriots? Packers? Raiders?

Yeah, those types of things are more limited to college sports. I can’t think of an equivalent for most NFL teams. Redskins fans will sing Hail to the Redskins but there’s really no physical action they do. Packers fans have the Cheesehead but I don’t think there’s a song or anything else related to it.

Swinging the Terrible Towels is kind of similar, and a few teams have used them.

As college students at the University of Kansas, a group of us came up with the "Jayhawk Squawk". You'd put one hand up by your face, sticking out like a bird beak, and the other hand behind your butt, sticking out like tail feathers. Then you'd stomp your feet back and forth while emitting a loud squawk.

For some reason, it never caught on...

We have no culturally inappropriate signal like that.

The San Jose Sharks have The Chomp.

I can only think of a few similar examples -

Washington Nationals fans did the baby shark thing last season because one of their players starting using it as his walkup music. He's not longer on the team (he went to Japan to play) so it remains to be seem if they'll continue it. They got a lot better just after the started doing it, so maybe they should.

Fans of the University of Texas have a gesture where they extend the index and pinky fingers This is intended to mimic the school mascot, a longhorn cow.

The Chiefs stole this from the Seminoles, and it looks like the Braves stole it later.

That's not what a Jayhawk is. The motion should be hacking a slaver to death, as is tradition.

Reminds me of the Yale students who posed as Harvard students and infiltrated the Harvard side of the stadium before the Harvard-Yale football game, getting them to hold up signs that, together as a group, formed "WE SUCK." They had told the Harvard fans that the signs were patterned to read "GO HARVARD."

It's a hack that has happened several times, going back to 1957, the 1961 Rose Bowl, and others. The Havard-Yale version happened in 2004.
