  1. I have a friend that has been working for the organization now for a few years.There was a company meeting a few weeks ago that was attended and It was explained to me that this years Fan Fest will involve an admittance fee. It wasn't said whether it was fifty dollars or fifty cents, only that there will be an admittance fee. The organization will be treating this event as a regular season game day. After the past season ticket system, and people trying to profit off of it, it will now be a fee based ticket system this year. I have no reason to believe I was lied to and I have done several internet searches to see if this claim is in fact true or false. I have come up empty in my endeavors. To be clear this is only an unsubstantiated internet rumor imposed by me based on the things I have been told. What say you Huddle, can you find anything in regards to this? Oh, also by the way. Adults that are sitting in the end zone when a touch down is scored and Cam wants to give the ball to a kid and you, as an adult, interfere. You will be asked to leave the stadium. There has been a real problem from adults taking the balls away from the kids when Cam scores a TD. http://www.wbt.com/articles/panthers-charge-fan-fest-admission
  2. Exclusive Fan Fest Photos

    Yet again Fan Fest has come and gone. Due to the CBA regulations, the players did not wear pads. So, unlike in years past, fan fest did not feature an actual scrimmage. Still, it was great to see the guys in action. Before practice began, Cam had some encouragement for Greg Hardy, who was fairly quit for the practice. It an awkward situation Hardy is in, but everyone is trying to make the best of it. I noticed KB tends to stick his tongue out quite a bit. It worked for Jordan, but I am not so sure its a great idea in football... Cam Newton and Ryan Kalil continue to develop great chemistry. I think it is under appreciated how well these guys do together. Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis threw on the sidelines for a while. Davis kept putting some heat on the ball and causing Luke to drop them with the crowd watching, which wasn't appreciated. The two really do seem like brothers. The usual conditioning and training drills began. We got our first look at Tyler Gaffney. Gaffney may see increased snaps at the start of training camp due to Jonathan Stewart's hamstring pull. Gaffney really needs to take advantage of it. Chandler and Bell once again split time at both tackle positions throughout the day. Dave Gettleman was seen on the sidelines looking over his squad. He was joking around with Charles Johnson a bit and seems to really have the respect of the players. I think they relate to him well as an ex-football coach. Cam looked healthy and was able to perform all that was asked of him. It is not surprise that Josh Norman looked good. He always looked good in camp and in practice. Can he make his way out of the dog house this season? Tavarres King made a really nice grab that was initially bobbled in the air during wr/cb matchups. In an actual game, it may have been picked off by a safety. None the less, it was impressive to watch. Byron Bell was drawn offsides by Charles Johnson. The flag would probably gone against Johnson I believe, Cam's hard count the credit. There is little doubt in my mind that Trai Turner is our day 1 starter at right guard. The man is a double wide. Swole Bones Brandon Williams also made some nice grabs with the first string. If he can produce this year it is going to be huge for the Panthers offense. Hello two tight end sets! Any time I can take a picture and have two future All Pro players in the frame, its a picture worth taking. Benjamin made a nice grab from Cam in heavy traffic and headed for the end zone. He continues to flash and could be a breakout player this year. Deangelo looked good, as usual. He has never had an issue with conditioning in camp. We tend to take that for granted. Could Vinnie Testaverde's influence on him still linger? Kenjon Barner is quick. He gets to the outside faster than any running back on the roster. He also made a couple of really nice grabs. I know some of you have written him off, but I haven't. Cam had a blast directing "the wave" with the crowd. I can't think of another player in Panthers history with so much likeability and charisma. The best play of the day goes to Bersin with a gorgeous TD grab over Byndom. After practice, it is easy to see who is the most sought after player by the media for a quote. Hope you enjoyed these photos. I am heading to Spartanburg on Saturday for the kickoff party. If you are there, please be sure to say hello!
  3. Fan Fest Update

    Historically, Fan Fest has always taken place well into the start of training camp. Not this year. The Carolina Panthers are having their annual Fan Fest at the start of training camp this year. On July 25, the Panthers will open their doors to thousands of rabid Panthers fans. The Panthers are anxious to unveil their awesome new stadium upgrades to Panthers fans. Fans will see new scoreboard/video boards, 360-degree ribbons boards and hear the new sound system. The boards, which dwarf the previous video screens, will provide a much more enjoyable visual experience during the games. The sound system, which we learned from Vinny Esposito in the Huddle Podcast Episode 2, will feature an ability to "move sound around the stadium". The Panthers will practice, but whether or not they will be in full pads is unclear. In all probability, you can expect highly entertaining drills such as 7 on 7 and WR/DB match ups. This will provide plenty of excitement for the fans and their quest to quench their football thirst. The reason for moving Fan Fest to the start of camp is simple, the Carolina Panthers wanted their own fans to be the first to witness the new stadium upgrades. On August 2, there is a Guinness International Championship soccer match scheduled between Milan and Liverpool, whose fans will also enjoy the new upgrades. So, the date has been moved up and now Panthers fans, not soccer fans, will be the first to see the new diggs. Smart move. Fan Fest will take place July 25 at 6:30pm at Bank of America Stadium. Admission is free, but there will be a charge for parking around the various lots. Historically, parking has run 5 to 10 dollars depending on the proximity to the stadium. The South side of the stadium fills up quickly as more shade is available there. North seats will be in full sun for the start of practice. Autographs are signed after practice. Make your way down to the bottom of the seating where players will be walking around the stadium and signing whatever fans bring. I have noticed in the past that those closest to the south tunnel have the highest chance of getting something signed.
