Fan-O-Meter Score Chart
0-5: You are an UDFA, with a mind like a steel trap (Old and Rusted), people laugh at you when you go out in public and often call you a "Newb!"
6-10: You almost know enough to be dangerous, but not quite. If you can pick up a few more points you might be able to pick up that bar-fly with the cum-target tattoo on the small of her back, down at the local Grill & Swill.
11-15: You made the practice squad by showing the coaches which end of the football is marked forward... "The "that 'a way" end...
16-20: Congratulations, you made the third string, back up position. Now all you have to do is learn how to polish the pine, or hold a clip-board right side up.
21-25: You are definitely 2nd string material, you know what a football looks like and sometimes you can even catch it, or not fumble it when it's handed to you. Way to go sunshine! You’re in the big time now!
26-30: First string all the way baby! At this level, if you can actually perform, you might survive the dreaded "Chop List." Good- luck butter cup, one drop and you will be traded to Oakland!
