The Resume

    (1935- )
    Originally nicknamed 'Bronks'
    Became 'Stampeders' in 1945
    WIFU 1936-53, CFL (1954- )
    Eight Grey Cups (1948, 1971, 1992, 1998, 2001, 2008, 2014, 2018)

Why they might be annoying:

    They were Calgary's fourth attempt at establishing a stable football franchise.
    One of their Grey Cups came as a result of a controversial fumble against Toronto (1971).
    They went 15-3 for three straight years from 1993-95, but failed to win the Grey Cup each time.
    They caused Canada to lost the Grey Cup for the first time (and only time) when they lost to Baltimore 37-20 in the 1995 Grey Cup Game.
    Due to financial troubles, they were on the verge of folding in the mid-1980's.
    Their uniforms make them look kind of like the Kansas City Chiefs.

Why they might not be annoying:

    In 1948, they went 12-0 in the regular season, then won the Grey Cup.
    They are the Miami Dolphins of the CFL, as they have the only undefeated Grey Cup champions in CFL history.
    Their fans and city saved them from their financial troubles in the mid 1980's.
    They had some of the most statistically dominant CFL teams ever in the 1990's.
    They went 8-10 in 2001, but upset their way through the playoffs, and won the Grey Cup.
    They have a great rivalry with cross-province rivals Edmonton.
    Doug Flutie and Jeff Garcia played for them.
