Show your pride with Fancred

NFL fans can be a curious bunch. Irreverent if their teams are longtime cellar-dwellers; insufferable if their teams are perennial winners; and fun if their teams are having a miracle season. Then there are teams who’s fans are legendary for their bad behavior (I see you Raiders and Eagles fans).

The Fancred app is designed as a social networking site where team’s fans can communicate with each other. Just create a profile, pick your favorite team and you’ll have access to a feed filled with news, scores and comments from your fellow fans. Available in iOS and Android.

Use these apps to enjoy the first Sunday of the new season, and throughout the year.
