Would it take a playoff drought like the Buffalo Bills are enduring? (I think it's up to 13 years at this point).

Would it take the team somehow botching Cam Newton staying in Carolina for his whole career?

Would it take the team moving to a different city?

Or would you stay a fan no matter what happened?

Can't imagine not rooting for the Panthers. Frankly, it's a miracle that I'm even a fan since I started watching the Panthers in 2001 during the 1-15 season.

I wouldn't support them if they left North Carolina. As long as they're here I'll watch the games. Personally I don't like the direction of the team but there's nothing that can be done to change it. I do think this team will be like the Raiders and Bills going forward.

Moving elsewhere would hurt for sure. I'd have no other team to root for, but pulling for the Panthers would undoubtedly become more difficult.

Hm yeah, didn't think about the whole "moving" angle...I doubt that happens though.

Moving.

But my degree of fandom can change. Could go from hardcore to casual. Appears no real desire to make the moves to be a legit contender.....if it continues and Cam says enough is enough and gets his way to get out of Carolina......I will probably tone it down and devote my fandom elsewhere (another team I support not in the NFL)

moving.

if the team were to be moved that would mean the organization is pretty much in the same or worse craptastic shape than it's in now.

i'm not going to go thru the hassle of finding ways/spending money to watch the games.

The Panthers are the only NFL team that I've ever pulled for.....could never imagine wearing another teams colors. Yeah it would hurt if they went on a steak like the Bills or Browns but I'll still pull for them

Even if they moved I'd probably still be a fan unless they changed their name and tried to become a completely different team. They've been my team since the 5th grade so I'm not going to stop supporting them now.

I think I will always be a fan but if they manage to let Cam get away the way they did with peppers it might cause me to watch less.

Good grief. It's no wonder we get hounded by trolls here so badly.

I have been a huge fan ever since '95 and I couldn't just stop being a fan one day.. it would have to take quite a bit for me to ever stop being a panthers fan.
