A study conducted at Emory University that analyzed consumer demands in baseball from 1998-2014 found that Phillies fans are the least tolerant of losing in all of Major League Baseball. The "fan sensitivity rankings" were based on "statistical models of consumer demand." The models were built to gauge how fans respond to ticket prices and winning percentages.

The Orioles, A's, White Sox and Dodgers rounded out the top five, respectively, in the rankings of biggest bandwagon fans based on the model.

On the other end of the spectrum, the teams with fans most likely to attend games and support the team despite ticket prices and winning percentages:  Yankees, Cardinals, Marlins, Red Sox and Diamondbacks.

I can almost hear Phillies fans cursing out this study. Almost.
