Hi all, Panthers fan born and bred in England UK
I spent a year out from my university and went to USA 8 years ago. I had 3 choices of universities to exchange at: Grand Valley Michigan, Kansas City or UNCC. I made the right choice in UNCC and was once offered a ticket to a game. I've been hooked since.
I've been back in the UK since but still keep up with the Panthers. For some reason I've only just bothered to find this site, stupid as I always delve deep for an understanding of what's going on. I support a soccer team here and need that deeper view of what's going on, rather than simply ask "why is our budget so small? Why don't we move to a new stadium? Let's demand the owner/president to sell up so someone rich takes over!".
I've been to a few of the International Series games here and while they're fantastic days for getting drunk alongside fans of every other NFL team (mostly US-expats) I'd rightly be annoyed if one of my soccer team's home league games was moved to a different country, even if I'd love the trip. Besides, the prices have been ridiculously high!
I'll quit waffling on before I start sharing photos of distant relatives and what I had for breakfast, and just want to say hi
This is a popular forum and I'm thick-skinned, so I look forward to arguing or drunkenly agreeing with you all
