What if the Panthers moved to another state and changed their name and colors? Would you still follow them? If not, who would you follow?
If a team came back to Carolina 5 years later and were named the Panthers again, would you leave the team you were currently supporting and got to know and start all over and support the Panthers again even if your current team might be a very solid organization?
I would support the Ravens if the Panthers moved and would support the Panthers as my favorite team again when they returned no matter how close I have gotten to the Ravens and no matter how good they may be. There would just be a closer gap between my favorite team and second favorite team if that were to happen. JR, or whoever the owner would be, could eat poo and I would not show any remorse if the owner died before me.
Maybe it's the mood I'm in after my SF Giants lost but STFU!
Edit: 30 seconds of thinking about it.
