Sports fans don't hold back what's on their minds. They don't hold back when yelling at the TV when there is a bad play, and don't shy away from bragging about how Tom Brady is the greatest player of all time. Insert eye-rolling emoji here.
Sports fans are also known for trash-talking the opposing team, which is hilarious to do with your buddies in a group chat. But using the standard iPhone emoji keyboard doesn't really capture what you're trying to express. Sure, you can use the clapping hands, or hands in the air touchdown style to get your point across, but you can't deny the lack of sports-related emojis.
Now there is actually an emoji keyboard that is pretty much any hard-core sports fanatic's dream. Similar to the insanely popular Kimoji app from Kim Kardashian, SportsManias includes animated emoji versions of some of our favorite players. While sending the signature crying Kim emoji may be appropriate for sore losers, this app features even better emojis, such as Odell Beckham Jr. whipping after making a catch and Rob Gronkowski spiking the football in the end zone.

Not only does SportsManias allow users to send emojis, but fans can take their trash-talking to the next level by also sending GIFs and memes. That means users can send Tom Brady looking around for a high five, or a Peyton Manning meme bragging about his game.
While this app has been around for some time now, its February update brings with its 10 new animated emojis that bring LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and the "Cam dab" from Cam Newton.
While nothing is better than bragging to your friends how your team is better by using emojis, SportsManias is more than a library of shareable emoticons. The app allows users to select their favorite teams in the MLB, NHL, NFL and NBA, with the ability to get related news, videos, rumors and social media posts in real time.
Version 3.1.8 of the app now gives fantasy basketball alerts. Users can import their fantasy football and basketball teams from ESPN, CBS Sports and Yahoo so they can view and stay updated on their roster changes throughout the seasons in their personalized feeds.
