With all the neologisms getting forged in the heat of the blogosphere, we thought we'd throw an iron in the fire:

TALIFAN: n. A fan whose zealotry for his team absorbs all personal frustrations, predjudices, and irrational hatreds into a single point of focus, the opponent, causing delusion even in the face of plain facts. Often commits inexcusable acts in the name of fandom, including fighting, egregious name-calling, and tossing bags of human excreta at opposing fans.

ex: Dude, those guys who pissed on us from the upper deck were real Talifans.

Why didn't Rich Hall come up with this?
