When they are losing, the town turns on them. Denver is a bandwagon city when it comes to sports, minus the Broncos. Denver is first and foremost a NFL city.

Dallas Stars? I don't know what this fan base resembles. Pretty unique series of past events.
Exactly. Denver will always be a Broncos first city. It takes the other major sports (Avs, Nugs, Rocks, Rapids, Buffs, etc.) being in the top of their leagues for anyone to notice, especially local media. It's Broncos all the time, all year long.
