Some people take this team and sport wayyyy too seriously.

No offense, but if you, like the rest of us, post on a message board specifically about this team, you're also guilty of taking this team and sport very seriously.

Yeah autographs are cool, but I feel like I'm beyond that now at my age. Dick LeBeau played golf at my club this year and I could've easily gotten an autograph, but I just said I'd like to shake hands with a hall of famer and joke about him being the godfather of the 3-4. He smiled and we talked a little football. He had nothing but praise about Cam.

What I think is weird is when an adult meets a high profile athlete, and they get star struck... I do think that that's pathetic. After going to a few of DeAngelo and J Stew's events in the past it made me sick to my stomach.

I mean seriously... You're a grown ass man, and you're fawning over another grown ass man in person?

It just doesn't make any sense to me.

I think it's fricken weird to see a man 3x my age (20) yelling out Mr. Smith, Mr. Smith let me shake your hand.

you'll be a 50-60 year old sports fan one day................

don't tell me you know what you will and won't do.......because you don't,

PS.......TC is the place to do these things.

Oh you are damn right, I will be a Panthers fan til the day I die.

But I want knock a 10 year old kid on his ass to get Steve Smith's autograph.

"Mr. Smith, Mr. Smith, I came all the way from Tampa to shake your hand."

I mean really?

True, but not "wayyyy too seriously". There is a difference. I no longer own a jersey, or any memorbilia, I couldn't care less about reading about TC, I no longer get angry about stupid FO moves or blunders by players, and if the team loses it no longer ruins my week. Heck, I don't even think we're going to make the Playoffs.

Seeking autographs at training camp are sad,creepy, and pathetic.

Not the ones who come down to the fence after watching practice but the ones who sit at the fence the whole practice and scream for players 10 years their junior and calling then sir and Mr.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who reacted to this.

Post-practice was absolutely pathetic. I moved to the scoreboard endzone along the bushes just to see if anyone would come by. Jimmy jogged over and started signing, but by this time everyone's attention was focused on Cam who had just started signing over on the home side of Gibbs. Everyone, adults and kids alike, are shouting for Cam, and this forty year old man with his kids in tow standing by the bushes with the rest of us starts a "We want Cam!" chant while Jimmy is quite literally right in front of him. Needless to say, as Cam made his way over to the endzone, Clausen ended his signing quickly and I don't blame him.

We talk on this board often about Cam being Charlotte's first superstar and the impact that has on the community. Post-practice, what I saw was the equivalent of Beatle-mania, which is understandable among the youngsters, but I expected much better decorum from the parents of those youngsters.

What's worse? An adult asking for an autograph or an adult using their child to get autographs? I like getting autographs, I don't feel bad about it. I don't sell them, I don't display them. It's just nice to know I have them. Now the people the op talks about do annoy me but I don't find anything creepy about them. They sit up at the fence every day and miss the entire practice. I can't help but think they aren't even Panther fans. There are guys that come to Ron Rivera's radio show and they bring an army of kids with them. They hand out nice pictures of whichever player is there to the kids so they can each get one signed. It's so obvious they are looking to make a buck and it bothers me. What I hate is the collateral damage when regular adult fans get blown off because of these ebayers.

So it sounds like the only reason you come to this site is to troll and you think that is better than caring about the Panthers.
