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."

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?

I catch the occasional hurp durp Panthers sure do suck this year at work from the various Redskins/Cowboys chumps that have business in my area. I usually hurp durp them back and don't care because I've been through shitty seasons before as a Panthers fan and I'm just taking things as they come.

There was a Packers fan who used to work with me who was actually from Wisconsin and he picked on one of the more annoying Redskins fans about how he had actually been to Lambeau and seen his team in person. He had absolutely nothing to say to that. Piece of advice: those kinds of people are mean poo until you point out that they've only seen their team on TV. Also grow some thicker skin because this won't be the last shitty Panthers season in your lifetime.
