A Question From An Italian Fan

I went to the opener of the great :wacko: 2010 season in NY with my wife - the first game in the new Meadowlands Stadium. I received some comments about my teal 89 jersey already in Manhattan cause they also had a Steve Smith that time, but it was all fun, people were cool and I made sure to let everyone know that we had the REAL Steve Smith. Then we went to get the bus from Manhattan to stadium in NJ. The bus was completely packed with Giants fans. We were the last two persons to get on the bus nad the only non Giants fans. Now THAT was a great experience :ph34r: . We swallowed all the comments although 80% of them werde more fun than rude. We talked to Giants fans on our way to the stadium, everything was fine. Later in the stadium there was only one drunken idiot who barked at me the whole time during the game, but all the other GMen around us were respectful and great. It was a perfect day (except the loss) and I would do it again.

But I would never do the same in Philly and Oakland - despite all the love I have for my team.

BTW: I am from Germany, a die hard Panthers fan since 1997 (since my first of many stays in NC). I attend a lot of soccer games here and it is truly amazing how peaceful and safe it is to attend an NFL game being an Away-Fan. Mentioning I am from Germany, we even have a Panthers Fanclub here, so there are quite some Carolina fans in Europe.

Go Panthers!

Considering the stereotypes thrown out about the OP being Italian (therefore he must be a gangster and itching for a fight/murder) I have to wonder if the fans around here have any more class that the Philly fans.

Way to welcome a new and international member to the board. Its crap like that that is the reason nearly every discussion here is between the same handful of members, or otherwise trolls.

I doubt many here have crossed a state border much less ever visited another country.

I have to hand it to Atlanta fans, at least the ones I've encountered and who have encountered me when I went to the GA Dome for games. When I was still living in Auburn in '10 I went with my then-gf to a game wearing my blue Stewart jersey and hat and Falcons fans were pretty chill. We talked poo here and there but it was all in fun. I asked one woman, "what if we picked Cam Newton?" and she said "NO. That would be awful. I don't want to see him beat us."

Too bad :D

I'll be @ the San Diego game this December wearing my Cam jersey right behind our bench at the 50 yard line, hoping to come out of that game alive and well.

Wearing my gear in Philly would be a fascinating anthropological moment. Wearing my gear in Dallass or Fixburgh would be different, as I absolutely hate them.

*****DO NOT WEAR YOUR PANTHER COLORS IN PHILLY***** Those people are classless nutcases.

Don't listen to this REDSKINS fan... seriously....nothing more annoying than Redskins fans from NC...

Why do you post here? So you wouldn't wear a Redskins jersey in Philly? Really? It's funny grown adults are scared to wear their team colors in Philly... glad you're not a Panthers fan.

I've been to Philly, for a Panthers game AND Blue Jays vs Phillies

I wore my Panthers jersey back at the 2004 NFC title game in Philly and my JOE f'n CARTER jersey in the nosebleeds at the Bank in Philly...everyone around me was actually pretty respectful and all the jabs were in good fun...and the Jays swept them and Panthers...well we know what happened in that game... : )

Just don't be obnoxious, and you will be fine.

BE PROUD AND REP OUR PANTHERS!!!!!!!!!!!

So awesome that you're a Panthers fan in Italia!!!! : )

Fortunately i'm not from North Carolina and would never go to a shithole like Philadelphia. Hopefully for the good man from Italy he will catch the game and the 1st flight out of town.

LOL.........judging by this thread you would think the Philly home games are played on Riker's Island. It is quite obvious Panthersphan is the only one who has ever been to a game there. Wear your Panthers jersey and nothing will happen......it isn't the 700 level of Veterans Stadium anymore.

There was a guy on this board who went to our game against Oakland in 2008 decked out in Panthers gear. I think he even put together a sort of small photo journal of his trip.

I remember a few of the pictures were of what looked like thousands of completely empty upper deck seats covered in seagulls. A few people talked trash and got in his face but the overall tone of it struck me as more pathetic and depressing than menacing.

HOLY SH*T. The Huddle, supposed to be full of the best Panther fans around, is encouraging NOT wearing Panthers' gear to an away game? F*K the A HOLES in Philly, represent your team. This is why we get punked when teams like the Eagles and the Steelers come to Carolina. You act like a bunch of GOD DAMN 9 YEAR OLD GIRLS SOMETIMES. Fine, why don't one of you guys send him a warm sweater and I nice Chianti he can tailgate with.

What your saying is you would renounce the Panthers under threat of a beer (which the stupid philly fan probably paid 8 bucks for) being poured on your head? How many times do I have to call you fatty before I get your lunch money?

Being poured on my head is not so bad. Being hit in the head with it, well I could do without that. :)
