Fuelled by their early success, by 1884 the group looked to take their act to a wider audience. For an unfathamoble and as yet unexplained reason, it was decided the best way to do this would be to masquerade as a football team.
This left County with a problem, as fielding a team with 42 legs went against League regulations. Attempts to get around this by removing the rear legs of each sheep proved a rash and unpopular solution, as not only could the sheep not play football, it also made intercourse far more difficult for the good citizens of Derby.
Axed from the group and traumatised by their experiences, yet unwilling to go quietly, the sheep went on to form the Derby County Supporters Club. Their influence can still be seen today in the delusional, stubborn and sexually maladjusted Derby fans.
Replaced with nine mental institution outpatients and a cauliflower, County became masters of irony. Famous gags include being the holders of the 'worst Premiership season ever' title while simultaneously performing their shows at a venue known as 'Pride Park' and their ability to charge inbred Derby residents exorbitant prices for one dire performance after another.
Derby fans are probably the most loyal fans in the country, because even during the bad times they sell out almost every single game and outsing opposition fans home and away.
Derbys local rivals are Nottingham Forest who play in League One and probably won't ever get out of it, however due to how shit they are, most Derby fans have forgotten about them. In fact you may struggle to find a Derby fan who can name a single Forest player...
"Yeah... we beat them but i've never experienced such passionate fans in my life"
"What about Nottingham Forest?"
"Sorry?... Is that joke?"
"Yeah might as well be!"
they're fans are commonly known as "sheep shaggers" to all other respectable teams.
they also need to take their head out of their ass, swallow they're pride (little as it may be) and admit that forest, who have twice been the best team in europe are better than them.
even leicester city are better than them and leicester are bollocks.
"all those fans of derby county really should get their dicks out of those sheep's asses and start watching their team lose"
