Steelers. The first game I ever watched was when the Steelers beat the Cowboys the second time (back in the 70s). Before the game started, I decided that who ever won would be my favorite and I would hate the loser forever.

Then, in 1993, it was announce that Charlotte would get an expansion team. I've been a Panther fan ever since. I still have the original team hat -- bought it the first day it went on sale.

The Cowboys. My Dad has always been a huge Cowboys fan. He went to high school in Ohio with Roger Staubach. So I was born into it. I grew up in Virginia Beach and I always wished I had a home team to root for. When the Panthers came into the league I decided they were close enough. Eventually I was able to move to Charlotte.

I was a Cowboy fan until Jerry Jones fired Tom Landry. The disrespect that was shown the legendary coach turned me off to Jerry Jones version of Cowboys. I then went a few seasons without a "favorite" team until the Panthers started playing.

My dad was and still is a Redskins fan, so I pulled for them when I was younger... mainly because that's all he could watch growing up... I've tried to convert him.

I was a Redskins fan from the days of George Allen. Leaned to hate the Cowboys, and I still think Joe Gibbs was the best coach in the last 30 years. But once Carolina got a team, it was all Panthers. I don't even pay much attention to the Skins anymore.
