Any of you in Raleigh? Specifically Brier Creek?

I think the problem is that since we can see every game at home...it's much nicer to drink beer cheaper at home that at a bar and potentially have to deal with other fans.

Draft has a pretty good selection of beer. I have only been to one of the games so far but for a pre-season game it was a decent turnout.

And yes the amount of relocates in this town are sickening. I drove through my neighborhood the other day and counted 6 #1 Steelers fan license plates in the what minute and a half it took me to get to my house. As compared to the only 3 Panthers fans I know in the neighborhood....

I used to get on Carlton Tudor of the Raleigh N&O on a routine basis for the lack of coverage given the Panthers in Raleigh.

Love Raleigh, glad to live here,; but, when it comes to the NFL, the media totally ignores the Panthers. Of course that has changed now that the N&O and Observer share sports staffs.

There are a good many frustrated Panthers fans here.

Perfect example is when the Panthers fan caravan used to come to Millbrook Exchange park. Neither the local news or the N&O would advertise the event until either a) the day of or B) B) the day after and they wondered why they had such bad attendance.

As for me, I make the 3 hr drive to and 3 hr drive back from Raleigh to Charlotte for every home game and try like hell to not throw beer on the opposing teams' fans around me.

Hopefully, with Cam and Company, the need to do that will be much less.

I'm in Cary about 15 mins from Brier Creek, but I won't be attending. I have a perfectly good 70 inch TV, and no one can kick me out for being drunk in my own house. There are too many Steelers, Giants, Redskins, and Eagles fans around for me to even attempt to deal with.

I don't blame you, but this is why people think there are more Steelers/Redskins/whatever fans in Raleigh than Panthers fans. Most of the Panthers fans are watching the game at home. That said, most bars in Raleigh have the Panthers game on the big screen with sound. Draft in downtown is great, but you can also try Wild Wing Cafe, Rudinos, Gorman St Pub, the Ale House in Cary, etc.

With influences like ncstayate and RTP rawlee is a true example of just how bad a "sports" town can get. From the imports working in the park to the venomous wolpie local fans, its a wonder there are any decent sports people in the entire city.

Haha, it's just sad how obsessed y'all are with the NC State hate. Can't you just focus on your own team?

Speaking of bar watching, is there a generally agreed upon/known bar for Panthers fans to congregate in NYC? Last year, I went to the Mason Jar on 30th between Madison and Park, but besides Week 1 (when there were probably 6 of us), I was the only Panthers fan there :| I did end up getting a TV dedicated to showing the Panthers game every week because I always showed up, but it was kind of lonely being the only one cheering them on. I wonder if I'll see some bandwagon Cam fans there this season.

East Village is one of my favorite bars in the entire state of NC.

Did the Hillsborough hike once in college it was pretty crazy. Almost got arrested for pissing on the alumni house.

Oh man that's rich. State fans are obsessed with Carolina to a point where it's quite pathetic.

Just look at what's went down in the past month.

State fans are so retarded they thought a message board post was going to bring down one of the most historic and successful basketball programs in the country.

State fans: OHHHH THEY POSTED JULIUS PEPPERS TRANSCRIPT ON A WEBSITE!!!!! TAKE THE BANNERS DOWN FROM THE SMITH CENTER!

I went to high school at Leesville and use to frequent Brier creek many a time as a teenager. I went off to college at ECU but my dad's birthday happens to be this sunday, depending on where he wants to eat, we could end up there and I could help you out.
