I wear my Panther gear all the time, 4 or 5 days a week. People do say things, but now its more sympathy or disbelief. I have the same reply to whatever is said.."If Im not a fan right now, Im not a fan at all." ..and thats how I see it. I was a fan in '96, thier 1st NFCC game, I was a fan in '01, '03 and now, regardless of the team's record. My name is Justin and Im a Carolina Panthers' fan...
I do say something to every person I see wearing Panther gear, there are a few here & there around VaBeach. Most of the time its something like "It takes a set to be wearing that hat/ shirt." They turn around with this look on their face like 'Whoinnafuk?', that is until they see Im wearing the same team..
This. I give a fist pump to everyone I see wearing Panthers gear. I rock mine atleast twice a week. Cant wear my stuff to work, but I do have nice Panthers colored work shirts.
I live in atl and am the only panthers fan here. Stop being a pussy.
This too. quit being such a puss. If they wanna make fun of you, tell them to shove it. We will see whos laughing when we start kicking everyones ass again.

Why is Newton considered not bright, but Luck extremely bright.
Could it be racism or could it be Liberal Elitism.

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.
I live in Wilmington, and Panther gear has always been rare. In the south college sports take a huge precedent over pro. People wear college logos 20 to 1 over pro, while in the northeast it is completely opposite.
Another problem is that 95% of the apparel scream redneck...even the stadium's endzones have the nascar type font.

I wore some Panthers gear, just to stand out from all these out of nowhere (band wagon) Atlanta Falcon Fags. And i could give a sh*t less what people say. Gotta take the bad w/the good.
I was at the game yesterday and saw a group of about four or five decked out in Shitbird gear with several rocking Vick jerseys. It's taken a few years but it seems like the Falcons are becoming the bandwagon team we know and love again.

No fair weather fans are left on the huddle, it has been cleansed out. Which we most certainly needed. They'll be back don't worry. We'll see people who haven't posted in years start posting with the Panther's #1 draft pick. That will bring a bunch along. I still wear my panther snow cap and ball cap.
Yep. Just like the Front office and coaching staff will be cleaned out in Jan-May of 2011, the fairweather fans are all but gone. By the time we are 2-14, they'll all have hit the road.

I'm still very proud to be a Panthers fans. This year has been a disaster, but it has been 2 years in the making and we are only going to go up next year.
The Panthers were 1 of only 4 teams who hadn't had at least one 10 loss season since 2002 before this year. Now only NE and INDY are left.
Funny how they have the best 2 QB's in the game. The upside of this bad year is that hopefully we will have a shot at a guy who could do the same for us.
The Panthers do have major holes to fill, but they have a lot more talent than the 2001 team did.
This year was a perfect storm of injury, inexperience, and lack of commitment from ownership to fielding a good team.
Hopefully injuries will not be as prevalent next year, and the inexperience and lack of commitment from JR certainly won't be.
The Panthers are going to continue to play in one of the best divisions in football over the foreseeable future given the other QB's in the division.
However, this situation is certainly no worse than it seemed in 2002 or 2003 for that matter when we competed against the defending Super Champs (Tampa), Michael Vick (Atlanta), and a New Orleans team that had pretty good talent even with an inconsistent QB with Aaron Brooks.
I for one salute John Fox, wish him well, and look forward to the Panthers being a competitive team next year. Super Bowl Contenders? Maybe not, but we still have a good owner despite this one-yeat abberation, better talent than people would lead you to believe, and a better fan base than we are given credit for.
Go Panthers!!! And draft Andrew Luck!!
