I moved here from Gainesville, Florida in 2003. Huge Gator fan, born and bred. Up until I moved here, I followed my gator players in the NFL and not one team. Now i'm a panther, tried and true. It aggrivates me when the fan base is trounced for not being loud enough or showing up on time, but I know that for whatever reason, the "majority" of fans that make it into the stadium are not the loudest and a bit fickle. I understand why they are not though. My biggest problem with the team is how it is run. You must put a quality program together for a fan base to follow it. Marty Hurney has not done that. Jerry Richardson has not done that. I dont have much faith for the future as long as these two are pulling the strings.
As a fan base, we must demand better. To be a fan base like the Ravens, or Steelers, or Cowboys, we have to hold managements feet to the fire. We have to call for Marty Hurney to be fired. If needs be, we have to call for new ownership. The NFL is a business and not a family. We must be willing to part with those players who are not performing. We must address our needs. We cannot accept mediocrity. Players,coaches, managers, owners must be put on notice. If you do not perform, you do not have a place with this team. We deserve better. We must demand better. Its up to us.
