The Vikings, my sister lived in Minnesota. They were fun to watch with Cunningham at QB and that high powered offense they had. Good to see they are still choking and breaking hearts after all these years though.

No one... I was 6 when the Panthers played their first season... And still have a few vague memories from that season.

I was only 6, so I didn't even begin to watch football yet until I was in middle school. However, at that time I was an avid Chicago Bull and Michael Jordan fan. I still have my old white, black, and red MJ jerseys from back in the day.

I was a Buffalo Bills fan for 23 yrs. Switched my allegiance as soon as the expansion teams were announced. I was tickled to death that a new team was going to be one state away. Not very often you get a chance to be part of something from day one. Love it. :thumbsup:

Bengals and underdogs. My parents moved to Mason (near Cincinnati) in '85 and my dad took me to a few Bengals games. I was 7 when the Bengals went to the Superbowl in '88. I got really interested in football but in '90 we moved to Concord (near Charlotte) so I had to watch whatever teams were on. Since I couldn't watch the Bengals and we didn't have a team here I took on my dad's method of pulling for whoever was the underdog, and hating the Cowboys. I didn't have to wait long before talk of Charlotte getting a team came about.

Miami Dolphins fan from about 83 until the Panthers arrived. My mom's family was all from south Florida and they would send me Dolphins stuff, and I was a huge Marino fan. As a Charlotte native though, it was very easy for me to drop them and immediately adopt my new hometown team.

I grew up watching the Steelers (Bradshaw, Mean Joe Green, Jack Lambert, Franko Harris, Swan) and the Cowboys (Too Tall Jones, Staubeck/White, Dorsett).

Then it was the 49ers in the 80s (Montana, Lott, Roger Craig).

The 90s started with those awful Cowboys - I'd always respected the Cowboys however an arrogant new owner in Jerry Jones fired the classiest coach in all of football (Tom Landry) and brought in Jimmy/Aikman/Irvin/Smith and for the next decade we had to hear that incessant 'HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS' and how their America's team and the hatred was ON and has continued for most ppl outside Dallas (me included).

Now I'm passionate about my Panthers.
