Oh, the irony. Historically, buccaneers/pirates were notorious for being homosexuals. I guess that insult backfired.
If the teams chosen name is suddenly representative of the fans, well let's learn about Panther fans:
The panther is solitary animal. A male's range can be up to 250 square miles. A female's range is usually between 70 and 200 square miles. Territories may overlap. Dominant animals usually have the better territories. Males fight other males that invade their territory. The panther marks its territory with markings called scrapes. Scrapes are piles of dirt and grass scratched up with the panther's hind legs. They are about six inches long and are usually marked with urine.
So I guess that mean you have no friends and don't leave your territory that you mark with urine (also know as your moms basement with a strong pee smell) and spend a large part of your day cleaning poo from your butt with your tongue. You were right, talk about backfiring! Lol
