Much has been made of the, well, enthusiasm of some of the fans in attendance at the World Cup. In fact over the weekend we had a post that showed a series of fans in attendance at games that could also star in horror movies. But while some of these passionate spectators are indeed intimidating, I was interested in seeing how they stack up with, what is by my estimation, the most terrifying fan base in North America: The Raider Nation.

I'll let you be the judge. Below I've compiled a few photos of World Cup and Raiders fans side by side. In the name of social science, which fans seem crazier to you? Vote at the bottom of the post.
