I won't fault Giants fans for going, or even for guys who've lived there for years refusing to cheer for the Panthers. I've been in NYC for over a year now and I will always be a Panthers fan. I thought about maybe giving the Jets a try too, since they're AFC but... nah. So if I ever went to a Giants game I'd be a Panthers fan 100% and maybe even wear a jersey even if they were playing a different team. I really think it has to do with the wine and cheese PSL crowd. I've been to seven years worth of games and sat in the silver seats. While they are good fans who love the team, they dress in slack, loafers, and button downs. I'm not sure how rampant these types are throughout the stadium, but they're the ones who sell their tickets. We've all said it'll take decades to get the youngins grown up who will be handed their parents tickets, but these will be the kids of those wine and cheesers. It really speaks to Charlotte when you boil it down. It's a banking city, it's a transplant city, it's a snobby city. It's not blue collar like a Philly or Pittsburg. I lived there 18 years but I'm glad I got out. I don't honestly ever see Charlotte changing or the loud fans taking over the timid ones.
