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.


i dont understand how anyone can stop rooting for a team after over a decade.....

its kinda "homerish" to root for a team you live bye....i dont care if i moved to hawaii and 30 yrs later they introduced the hawaiin surfers as a team....im still a dolfan....regardless of geography...

you just werent fans to begin with imho

So what exactly did you do before 1995?


I wondered aimlessly from team to team. I liked Tarkenten for a spell. I thought (and still think) Montana was one hell of a player. I even pulled for the Chargers at one time. Now that the NFL has provided us with a team, I have committed myself.

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



Personally I simply can't imagine rooting for any other team than the Bears, but I do root for the Redskins because 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.



This is exactly what you hear people complain about onm this board. The Panthers are a relatively young team. That is why you see so many differently colored jerseys at a game and hear the loud cheers of the oponet teams at BOA. It will be that way for a long time. Die on out MFers. Just don't tell me you are a Panther fan "unless'. Just MHO!

So anyone who followed pro football in Panthers Country for more than 10 years before 1995 ought to ignore the Panthers? I guess there shouldn't be many folks in the stadium over 25 years old. Like I said, I still follow the Dolphins but I am a diehard Panthers fan. No big deal how I got to where I am today. I can accept it.

all im saying is if you are a die hard fan of a team....regardless of where you live, and what team appears there....you still root for your team....if not, then you are fairweather, bandwagon, homer....whatever you wanna call it...

guys like a few posts above who never really had a team untill the panthers got here....thats fine....but i couldnt imagine trading teams...cause one popped up where i live....

so if charlotte gets ANOTHER team (hypothetically) who do you root for then?!?!

it just boggles my mind i guess....

You know this is just my feelings. I speak only for myself. If you are a diehard fan of a team, then be that. It just burns my to have someone act like a Panther fan and show up wearing a *od dam steelers jersey for a Panthers steelers game. Insert any team name. If you are a XXX fan, be a XXX fan! You can't quit being a skins fan, be a skins fan! Just my feelings.

The way I look at it, I'm either on the bus or off the bus. I started with the Dolphins when I was 10 years old. I was in my early twenties when Carolina was awarded the franchise. I went to the first game and I decided it was the right move. I got on the bus. Miami was changing right before my eyes and it was an easy call to make. They forced Shula out for Jimmy Johnson. That sealed the deal. I guess I never really forgave them for that and honestly they haven't been worth a damn since. I still follow them and they are the only team in the AFC that I pay any attention to. I never followed them like I follow the Panthers now. That sums it up.

I can let it go on that note. Hell, it was only a football game I saw when I was 10.

srry you only cheer for 1 team more then one your just band wagoner

fairweather fan go wtih who ever is hot loser.


So I'm not allowed to be a die-hard fan of the team that has been in my heart and soul for 20+ years and root for the team that represents my hometown?

I think you should get a life and then go back to school to learn how to construct a well-worded sentence.

And, again, NO I'm not going to give you the gay-man loving that you desire.

I have no problem with you rooting for more than 1 team.

With the 'phins success this year, have you felt yourself pulled one way or the other?
