Just curious. Have some balls & tell the truth. Cam Bandwagoner, Panthers fan, or Cam fan turned Panthers fan?

Been a fan since '03, when the Panthers beat the Giants at the end of the season. I always hated the Giants because my friends were fans, and it was one of the few Panthers games that were ever televised up here. I watched them march to the Super Bowl and realized I had found my team. Steve Smith had a lot to do with drawing my fanhood. Not sure about the relevancy of this thread, because whatever draws a persons interest to this team (Cam included) is fine by me. It may be a player, the location, team philosophy, whatever that makes someone a fan, but fug if they are on board with the team it's fine by me

Dear God I feel old. I graduated college in 1990.

we made these little pins to wear to lunch for the NFCCG I remember. I remember my dad explaining the signifigance of sam mills intercepting troy aikman and returning it to about the 20 yard line or something like that. Good times.

2003 was wonderful because my 9th grade sweetheart and i used the night games as an excuse to go upstairs and fool around. Also good times.

2005 sucked because i got my first job as a bagboy and i had to tape the games. I missed pretty much every game. I had to buy these expensive extra long VHS tapes.

2008 was horrible because I transfered to a new university for the spring so my first sports bonding oppurtunity with my new roomates was the arizona game, blech.

Been a Panther fan since 03, the year we went to the Superbowl. To put something I'm perspective, people were bitching then complaining about all these new fans that were popping up because the team was successful. Who cares why you support the team as long as you truly support it.

delhome got a ton of the credit too just like The Golden Calf of Bristol in '11. Amazing how similar those seasons were. Delhome could throw waaaay better than The Golden Calf of Bristol though. Which makes The Golden Calf of Bristol pretty horrible.

Come one, come all. I don't give a fug why you follow the Panthers as long as you follow them. If The emergence of Cam can force some of these opposing fans out of BofA I am 100% behind them.

i never had a favorite team of mine growing up, until about seventh grade, (2007). a couple buddies of mine were panthers fans and it rubbed off on me. i've been hooked since.

Born in 89 and also a native North Carolinian (Winston-Salem born and raised!), so the Panthers are all I know. My Parents are/were Cowboy and Steeler fans, but they've fell in love with Cam, so I think they're on board now as well lol. Pretty much my whole family have come on board due to Cam. I give them a lil grief, but the more fans we get the better. I'm a Cam fan myself, but I was a fan before Cam, and I'll be a fan when he retires a Panther in 13-16 years. Hopefully, he will have lead us to quite a few Superbowl Championships, and will be a lock for the hall of fame.

only problem is they identify with Cam so much is that they only get loud on offense. I heard one lady say that she doesn't cheer anymore because everytime she cheers we would throw an interception. Apparently getting loud on defense is a foreign concept.

Honestly, originally I was a Peppers bandwagoner. Before Peppers, I was more of a general NFL fan. I just liked watching good football. I had a casual interest in the Panthers as the local team, but there was nothing there to make me a full fledged fan. As a big UNC fan, the drafting of Peppers changed that. I was all in as soon as we drafted him.
