Discouraged Fan.

Feeling very alone on an island right now. Friends, co-workers, neighbors all make fun of me and the Panthers as they root for whomever.

I see no one wearing panther gear in Raleigh. All kinds of ravens, steelers, cowboys and skins fans. I saw ONE guy with a Panther hat at Crazy Fire the other night - wanted to high five five him.

The Huddle. Seems most people are concerned with next year and the draft. I haven't even looked 'Luck' up but to wonder why if this guy Cam (who seems like a thug) is going to win the Heisman why we wouldnt want him, followed by the uncertainty of labor negotiations - seems highly doubtful this Luck guy would even come out and even if I did I haven't given up on Clausen. I wish he wouldnt stare at the WR he is going to throw to and im sick to death of check-downs..but that can be learned / un-learned. I just dont think he can throw the deep throw...every one 'deep' seems to be this freaking lob. It would irk me if we just give up on him and the draft pick he cost us.

But back to being a discouraged fan. I swear I am like the only person rooting for the Panthers. I can understand fair weather fans in women, but wtf..even here on the Huddle?

Is it wrong to call out a 'fan' who thinks losing, at any time, no matter the situation...NOT a fan??

Was wearing a Panther hat in public the other day, and a guy said "It takes a bold man to wear that..." I said "Yup."

Don't be discouraged, buddy! Wear your Panthers gear with pride...there's only 6 games left in the preseason!

I know where you're coming from I'm in Baltimore right now for a wedding and surrounded by Ravens fans that keep telling me sorry. I just tell them sorry Luck will be better then Flacco :)

I guess ive gotten used to the jabs since i live in tx. Gotta represent your team man, no matter what. At least the cowboys fans are somewhat subdued this year. That will change now since they have managed to win a few, im sure.

Panther gear is always a guaranteed way to get some poo slinging in a bar around here.

What? A thug? People throw around that word very loosely around here.

Anyways, stop worrying about other people and rep your team. We all get made fun of man. Hopefully, we can become a dominant team in the future(I know most of you feel JR has put us in "good position" to do that anyways :rolleyes:), and you can return the favor and make fun of and talk smack back.

I'd rather be a "fairweather" fan that one that has to sulk on the Huddle because people make fun of him for being a Panther fan.

How about you grow a pair and stop being so timid?

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
