This Sunday will see the teams for Super Bowl XLIX revealed as we learn the winners of the NFC and AFC Championship games.

The Indianapolis Colts will take on the New England Patriots whilst the Green Bay Packers will travel to the home of the current Super Bowl champions, the Seattle Seahawks.

It is usual for fans to get very close with their teams ahead of the Conference Championship games but some have gone a bit too far this year.

The Seahawks can boast some of the loudest fans in all of sport and the Legion of Boom have literally become a 12th man.

The Packers and the famous atmosphere at Lambeau Field can be more intimidating than most sports crowds, and both fan sets have shown how far they are willing to go to support their teams.


With the Packers as the sole NFL representative for the state of Wisconsin, people all over the state are showing their support of the team ahead of Sunday.

A Milwaukee radio station has gone that far that they have boycotted any Seattle based band to be aired in a campaign titled "Say no to Seattle".

Including the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Heart, the station is clearly behind the Pack, but that is nothing compared to a city in Seattle.

No cheese on their heads in Seattle

The people in the city of Bainbridge Island in Kitsap County, Washington has gone so far to support their team that they have actually banned Cheese ahead of Sunday's big game.

With the Packers faithful often known for the blocks of cheese they wear on their heads at games and referred to as 'cheeseheads', the city based 40 miles outside of Seattle may have gone a bit over the top.

"Due to the relationship between the Green Bay Packers, their fans, and cheese, the possession of and/or consumption of cheese or cheese flavored products shall be banned in Bainbridge Island City Hall"

Clash of the powerhouses

The game at CenturyLink Field on Sunday is a true clash of the powerhouses as the Packers offense has been one of the best all season whilst the Seahawks defense is clearly back to their powerful best.

The Seahawks have only lost once since week eight of the regular season and their defense is currently the highest rated in the NFL.

With quarterback Aaron Rodgers still nursing a calf injury and Eddie Lacy limiting his practice time this week, the Packers may need to call upon a miracle to make it to Arizona.
