Does it matter if I bring my cousin tomorrow? She invites me down to Nawlins' when we play down there.
You can bring her anywhere you like.

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?
I posted that in the bandwagon thread and frankly I'm too lazy to come up with another argument for this thread. so i shall needlessly and arrogantly quote myself for this thread!

another thread about who are the real fans and stuff.
why post in another thread about the same topic and continue a discussion when you could get a gold star and start your own thread?
