The Panthers do need a bigger fanbase

45 posts in this topic

you would think a two state team would have plenty of fans....but all people talk about here is the gamecocks

North and South Carolina have a relatively large population, but its more spread out than most states. Raleigh Durham and Winston/Greensboro have a significant portion of NC's population.

The fan base will grow if the Panthers keep on doing what they are doing now.

So we should accept someone who ditched their franchise so they can come to be even more wishy-washy than some of our "wine and cheesers" already are.

STOP TRYING TO FEED YOUR CHILDREN ZOD!!!

Most of us cheered for another team before we were awarded the franchise. We picked up quite a few rabid fans during the Superbowl run, it's be nice to pick up even more.

I got swept up during the 05 season, but then that was the first time I'd been in the US. UK NFL fanbases are basically a function of Superbowl wins and how much the city is a tourist destination. I saw a total of 5 Panthers jerseys in my two NFL games in London, 2 of them were NC girls studying over here.

The only way the Panthers will get a game over here is if they win at least one Superbowl.

I say welcome, one and all. I've been a Panthers fan since they became a franchise but if Carolina wins the Super Bowl, fans will be coming out of the woodwork. This is what it will take if fans want media attention.

Or regular season ones, too. They did before the Super Bowl year.

I have been a fan since I heard the team was awarded to the Carolinas in 1993. I attended my first game in 1997. We saw the 49ers on MNF. Been to a game or two almost every year since.

The ticket restriction really slaps me in the face.

That would definitely be some dedication, but really, Charlotte's rather close to several state borders, so a lot of fans may be relatively close but still can't get a ticket. They need to do away with that.

The Saints played over there already!London would be a good Panther away game/opponent home game!;)

Hi, I'm a Panthers fan from Denmark.

I became a Panthers fan in 2006 and the first game I saw we lost 20-6 to the Falcons. They rarely show and games with Panthers in TV, it is always the Cowboys, Giants or Patriots but if the Panthers makes it to the Superbowl again and keep playing good offensive football hopefully it will get better.

The good about the Panthers games is that most of them is played at 1 p.m. (7 p.m. danish time) but the game against Tamba was totally worth sitting up from 2.15 a.m. to 5.30 a.m. to see. although the next day in school was pretty hard.

Here is a top 10 list over the most populare and unpopulare teams in Denmark:

The populares:

1: Giants

2: Colts

3: Patriots

4: Cowboys

5: Packers

6: Steelers

7: Chargers

8: Saints

9: Jaguars

10: Vikings

The unpopulares:

1: Patriots

2: Raiders

3: Colts

4: Giants

5: Lions

6: Cowboys

7: Steelers

8: Packers

9: Bengals

10: Chiefs
