In the ferocious debate between the two hosts, Stephen remarked, “Boston’s No. 1!!!!.” However, Mad Dog couldn’t hold back and had to reiterate his reasoning for not having Boston on the list. He said, “If Boston teams don’t win, they don’t care about any other teams.”

Conversely, Stephen believes that Boston becomes out of control for their team and their fanbase is like no other. Mad Dog’s A-List has Detroit, New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia in the same order, however, it leaves out Boston entirely.

The Twitter world is divided between Mad Dog’s list and how Stephen feels about the Browns‘ hometown being on the top. Multiple users commented on Barstool Sport’s tweet that showcased the hot debate on live TV. One user said, “The list in based off fan bases. You can’t tell me the city of Cleveland and Detroit doesn’t care more than Boston when it comes to their team winning a title.”

Another user replied to this and said, “Cleveland has horrible attendance in all 3 of their sports. If they cared, they would be top 5 in at least 2 out of the 3 sports.”
