Yes Charlotte has complacent bandwagon fans.
Put a few winning seasons together and that might change.
All these people I know are slowly turning into Panther fans now because of Cam and the bright future when a year ago today they didn't give two poos about the Panthers. Mind you these are the types that were Panther fans when we made the playoffs in 08 and their teams didn't. I welcome new fans, but I gotta admit it irks me a little that these fans who didn't stick it through the thick and thin are just now hopping on.
is this such a monumental peeve of yours and affects your life so much you wish you could change it?
i felt the same way about the rest of you after we went to the superbowl
superbowl bandwagon fans hating on camwagon fans lololol
I hear u...I'm a NY Knick fan when it wasn't cool to admit it...Got to stick with ur team through thick and thin..
Any fan that is in Charlotte and hadn't already made the switch when they moved here or when the Panthers came into existence isn't a fan worth having.
Don't care why someone becomes a fan. Getting new fans because of Newton....wonderful. Welcome everyone.
screw being some kind of elitist snob "i'm a better fan because i was here when we SUCKED!!!!"
we accept you
one of us
Some people call them bandwagon fans, some people call them fans that won't put up with crappy play and horrible coaching.
Give me a decent product on the field and I'm all in, even if we're not even good enough to make the playoffs. Give me what we put on the field last year and the year before ... well ... I have better things to do.
We may go 2-14 again this year, but at least people are trying and there's hope for better things down the road.
You guys sit there and act like the panthers are a generational team. I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but we are not. A team that is only 16 years old is, by definition, a team that does not even have a 2nd generation of fans. We are not an established team nor do we even have 2 winning seasons in a row. Please do not get me wrong here, I would DIE for my panthers, but all this "omfgbbq your a bandwagon fan shame on you" is just stupid.
16 years ago panthers fans did not exist, because the team did not exist. How many Jacksonville Jaguar fans do you know? Face it, its just a simple side effect of being a recent expansion team. A few decades down the road, when we have a few generations of Panthers fans, and the Panthers have a little more history, then we can start screaming bandwagon fans. But until then, not everyone can be like me and remember going to games in Clemson back on 1995 and at least 6 home games a year since. That is a lubricious and frankly arrogant assumption/requirement for a franchise this young. All fans have to start out as "bandwagon fans." Every single fan starts out as a bandwagon fan at one point in time, even more so with a team this young. If even 20% of these new fans decided to stick with us through our next atrocious season, then the team, city, and organization will all be better off. To sit there on your throne and scoff at this chain of events is just plain stupid, and makes me question either your loyalty to the panthers (maybe acting like a true fan is more important than being a true fan, because to a young team like this any fan is a fan worth having) or your sense of logic. maybe both are screwed.
But what do i know?
