According to new research from the Action Network, supporters of the Denver Broncos are some of the moodiest in the NFL, with over 15% of fans heading to the Internet to hate on the team after a loss.
It's possible that the Broncos hate isn't coming from true fans, but it's still an indicator that we're kind of sore losers (and vocal about it on social media).

Aside from angry social media rants, the company didn't go into detail about how else Broncos enthusiasts are getting their emotions out. However, other research has given us some insight.
