Not that sad when you consider the number of NY/NJ transplants in the area.
Think about it: The Panthers are a small market team with a 9-25 record over the last three seasons, and attendance at the home opener was over 72K, primarily Panthers fans. I expect the same, if not better numbers tonight. Again, primarily Panthers fans. There is nothing "sad" about it, unless you're just looking for a reason to complain.
There will always be fans of both teams at BOA. It's that way at every sporting event in the country, even in those markets with the most die-hard supporters.
Also, local sports radio is not going to be a true reflection of the Charlotte sports market. They are going to take those callers and run with that agenda because it stirs the locals up and gets them to make threads like this which makes the radio show relevant. It's the same tactic used by ESPN and Skip Bayless.
Best thing to do is ignore them.
I'm sorry....I must have missed something.
If 20-25% of the crowd tonight are rooting for the giants............. it is fu*king SAD.!!
