Charles Barkley Names The Worst Fan Base ‘In the History of Civilization’

Former NBA player Charles Barkley continues to do and say whatever he wants, and his latest statement is very on brand. Charles Barkley made an appearance on Bill Simmons’ podcast this week and the subject of “irrational fans” was being discussed. Charles ended up veering towards college football fans, and let’s just say, he didn’t put it delicately.

“You know who talks to me a lot about that? Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson.

“They do the SEC, which are the worst fanbases in the history of civilization. ‘You don’t say everything good about my SEC school, I hate your ass.’

“When I’m in Alabama, I got friends who are like, ‘We on CBS this week. Verne Lundquist and Gary Danielson hate us.’ I got Alabama fans saying, ‘Man, Verne Lundquist and Gary hate us.’ I’m like, ‘Why do you all think that?’

“I know Verne really well. And Gary I like, I don’t know him as well.”

“I said, ‘They don’t give a (expletive) who wins. I know both of those guys. They don’t give a (expletive) about Alabama-Auburn football. They are here to do their job.

“But fans hear what they want to (expletive) hear, Bill. It’s that plain and simple.”
