Are you a displaced fan? Do you love your team? Do you live in enemy territory but never miss a game for your favorite team? Here’s an easier litmus test, have you been able to see a Bucs home game on television this year? If you answered yes and you’re not pirating cable or the owner of an extremely expensive off-air satellite dish, then chances are you, my friend, are indeed a displaced fan! And if that’s the case then DirecTV has a competition for you to prove just how die-hard you are about your team. All you need to is go www.ultimatedisplacedfan.com and tell them why you are the ultimate displaced fan and you can win a grand prize that includes a Superbowl trip, a chance to mingle with some of your favorite players and a chance to participate in DirecTV’s celebrity flag football game. Here’s an example of a winning submission from last year:

I wanted to reach out to you regarding the 3rd annual Ultimate Displaced Fan contest that launched giving die-hard NFL displaced fans around the country the chance to earn the distinction as America’s Ultimate Displaced Fan. What is a displaced fan? A displaced fan is someone who lives outside the city of their favorite team, for example Archie Manning, who lives in New Orleans, is a die-hard Giants and Colts fan, uses the NFL SUNDAY TICKET Package to watch his son Peyton and Eli play every Sunday. Die-hard Displaced fans, such as Archie, can enter the contest by logging onto www.ultimatedisplacedfan.com and upload their videos, photos or essays showing why they deserve to be crowned the Ultimate Displaced Fan. One grand prize winner will receive the ultimate Super Bowl experience, including a trip to for two to Dallas, two tickets to the game and the opportunity to go on a media tour at the famed “radio row” with a player from their favorite team. If that’s not enough, the winner will rub elbows with NFL stars and celebrities when they participate in the DIRECTV Beach Bowl celebrity flag football game.
