Rayz, I understand the Kumbaya-politically correct attitude, but you don't think it makes a difference whether someone is rooting for the Panthers or just Cam? What this inevitably means is that if and when Cam goes, they go. I don't think there is necessarily a right or wrong answer. I am just asking.
honestly i don't care.
not sure why it matters.
if they leave...fine. if they stay...fine.
not a politically correct statement. at least that's not what i'm trying to be. i could care less about that. i'm not trying to be diplomatic.
i'm just pragmatic. i'm happy for anyone that is pulling for the panthers. i'm glad to have them around. i honestly can't see why anyone would want less fans.
i'm not going to put parameters on what it means to be a panthers fan or throw out some litmus test. i just don't think it matters. why look for defining lines? i just don't see how it benefits anyone or the fanbase or why anyone would care about motivations someone might have for pulling for my favorite team.
it just seems silly to me...the idea that there are factions or whatever among the panther fan ranks.
the more cam and the team improves, the more fans this team is going to have.
if this team gets back to the superbowl and actually wins it...you better believe there will be a lot of "bandwagon fans" coming aboard. are you (not specifically you top dawg) going to check their boarding passes or quiz them on their panther knowledge before you let them board?
everyone has to start somewhere. if people are pissed about them not knowing or being a part of this "rich" history of the carolina panthers or whatever then educate them or at least have a little patience with them while they learn.
seriously....i just don't see a point in labeling fans beyond being a panthers fan.
