I am in Oregon, and a Panther Fan, if they move I'll be their fan there, and if NC got another team I'd hate them and cheer for the FORMER Panthers. Strange. Or I might just say fug it, and cheer for the Ravens.

It would take way more than just losing.

Moving the team is an obvious one. That or if they did something 'real world' objectionable, which is highly unlikely.

I would never stop being a fan unless this team became like the Bills/Raiders, but with less loyal fans and then they actually moved us and changed our name.

I could only see that happening in like 25 years though when nobody on our current roster will even be playing.

There will be a team in Los Angeles very soon and if in 25 years the Panthers are some other team with nothing to remind me of my 'Carolina Panthers', I will be rooting for the Los Angeles team and finally be able to go to a Dodgers game, Lakers game, and NFL game all in the same city.

Solution: Move team to LA B)

As long as they are in Carolina I'll be a fan. If they moved, I would have to reevaluate.

Nothing could ever make me stop being a Panthers fan. We could let Cam walk for nothing, and although I'd be extremely pissed and probably physically sick over it, I'd throw on my jersey and head to BofA to see what the next guy can do.

Moving would not stop me from being a fanatic Panther fan, I am already 2000 miles away so no deal breaker there. If they change the name and get an owner like Jerry Jones, well then I would have to think about it.

moving is probably it.

i think the hardest thing about being a panthers fan, though, is other fans. i have no problem with homers because those guys are going to be the loudest at games and give off the most positive vibe.

i really don't like people bitching and complaining about everything the team does and just give off this feeling that they hate being a panther fan and like the team losing just so they have something to bitch about and pull out the "see, i told you they suck" card.

the worst, though, are the apathetic fans...esp. PSL holders who go games just to hang out and talk to other people or who let their tickets get into the hands of fans from other teams. that just sucks and it takes away any possible home field advantage.

I will be honest...if

-We never get over .500 in the next 4 years

During or After those 4 years
-Cam leaves
-Hurney still employed here
-Smitty, Beason, T.Davis, D-will, and J-Stew are all gone
-Falcons win a Super Bowl
-Cam wins a Super Bowl ring with another team
-Richardson basically tells/shows all fans the attitude "F*** you, pay me!"
-We're on our 3rd Head Coach after Fox

^^^All of this would have to happen. Prolly would become a regular fan of the NFL for a while afterwards

I have a hard time believing this is even a serious question.

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?

Been through the moving thing before. I am native charlottean so losing the Hornets was agonizing. I was as loyal to them as I am the panthers but dropped basketball all together when they left. The Bobcats are my new team but the bad taste in my mouth from the Hornets leaving makes me more of a casual than diehard fan like I used to be.

Moving would be the only potential thing that could make me drop them as my team, I love football too much to know if that would even make me drop them. Hopefully I will never be faced with that decison ever.

I remember a long time ago there was talk of Winston getting a MLB team. I would have dropped the Braves if that happened, just like ill drop the Panthers if Winston or Greensboro(maybe even Raleigh) ever gets a NFL team. That'll never happen, so I'm down with the Panthers till the end. I would lose a lot of interest though if Cam left. He's quickly became my favorite player.
