Does this really deserve to be in the Smack Forum? I'm considering creating a candy canes and cotton candy forum so I can move this thread therein

I must say, though, that seeing how virulent you are in your protestations

I can't hate anyone who can use the word "virulent"...and correctly too.

:cool:

I, personally, think people that were fans of a team prior to 1993, then threw away their allegiance like a candy bar wrapper to support the Panthers are nothing more than good for nothing turncoats who don't know what allegiance truly is. They're like hookers, see...


It burns you up, doesn't it- that I would be down in the dumps one week should my Bears miss the playoffs but still be celebrating the next week because the Panthers might have moved on in the playoffs, huh?




Help me understand. In your view, a 100% shift in loyalty and support to a new, and in most cases local team, is traitorous and contemptible. Swapping on a weekly basis is okay and you get to avoid the downs associated with a 100% committment to a franchise that failed.

Yes, exactly. What kind of true "fan" so willfully and easily throws aside their supposed allegiance to a team at the drop of a hat? I question their claim as a "fan" of the first team.

Swapping on a weekly basis is okay and you get to avoid the downs associated with a 100% committment to a franchise that failed.


No, I don't think that's ok. Who does that? On a weekly basis? Naaaa... that's just riding a bandwagon and has nothing to do with being a fan of a team

Frankly I'm surprised to find the number of Panthers only fans I see on this site.

So what exactly did you do before 1995?
I'm pretty sure everybody here is over 13 years old, right?
Also going to assume you have always liked NFL football, right?

So that pretty much tells me you USED to be a fan of another team.
Now you aren't.

So.....as Dimbee correctly points out you can either be considered a turncoat to the team you used to root for, or completely loyal to your region of origin.
Both situations have their merits.

Personally I simply can't imagine rooting for any other team than the Bears, but I do root for the Redskins because my wife is from that area and I always disliked their rival the Cowboys. Root for in the sense that I like to see the 'skins do well, but I'm not what anyone would consider a "fan".

So again, I'm surprised that I don't see more fans like Dimbee, that remained loyal to the team they first had allegiance to, and I think your scorn is misplaced.

Some might even argue YOU are the one to be looked down on, depending on former allegiance or lack thereof.

Just sayin'.

Grew up a Dolphins fan. Lived in South Florida for a time when I was in elementary school and my first pro game was MNF Dolphins-Patriots in 1979. I have lived in SC since 80 and claimed the Panthers as my team from the day the team was announced. Now I am a Panthers fan and I merely follow the Dolphins from a distance. The way I see it, the 'Fins are AFC and I'm no longer what I would call a "fan". That ain't "turncoat", that's just reality and it makes sense to me.
