I always had the impression the origin of the "bro" was a thinly disguised homage to the pre Jets Atlanta lineup that composed of an unusual amount of Afro-american players. The belief of the prior management was that by having such players it would attract more fans of that demographic profile. Now that the team is in Winnipeg, and even though there aren't that many Afro-Americans, the fans nevertheless conformed to become "bros" nowtimsay'n?
