Observation of a weak fan base!

Eagles haven't won a Damn thing and they are as rabid as it gets

they've at least been quite competitive and have been around for a long time. there are generations of eagles fans.

they also don't have to deal with the same influx of out of towners bringing in their own teams. your average joe on the street in philadelphia is probably an eagles fan.

weak fanbase? or

sign of a losing team's fanbase? new frnachise at that

don't have a problem with it because poo like this is the only thing JR cares about. If we were 0-16 each year but people filled the stadium, bought gear, got sales up I see it really hard for JR to give a poo. That is what I think is part of the problem now, lot of money in Cam not so much in the Panthers. No need for there to be.

really you'd probably even see an improvement if the team bought out all the PSLs in maybe two upper deck sections and replaced it with a single game ticket "fan zone" or something where all the drunk hell raisers and college kids could pile in for cheap.

considering the way the ticketing scheme is set up and of course the family friendly thing our ownership tries to push i don't think that would ever happen though. plus that would mean taking a ton of locked in season ticket revenue and just lighting it on fire if the seats didn't sell.

That's a really good idea, but like you said, it'll never happen.

I don't think that is a fair comparison at all. They may not have won a championship but in the last decade or so they have won more games than all but 3 or so other team; have something like 8 playoff births; 5 NFC East titles; NFC champsionship appearances and a super bowl appearance, That is not the same compared to 4 winning season in 17 or 18 years for a frachise with no real history. You just can't compare the two.

Besides, sports in general is a way of life in Philly....it's what they live for, 95% of that town are born and raised there and it's all that many of those people have. Charlotte will never be that way and that's not a bad thing.

Yeah, Eagles are the Buffalo Bills of the NFC. Next? We both have the same amount of NFC championships in the last 10 years

People start leaving with 10 minutes left in the game because they usually have a reason to.

I don't agree w/ selling your PSLS to opposing fanbases, but if some poor person is dumb enough to offer you his life savings to see the Cowboys/Redskins/Steelers because they can't afford to go to that city to see them then man you gotta do what you gotta do.

It wouldn't surprise me to see retards like Grits give away his kid's college fund so he can go see the Skins when they are in Charlotte. Let's face it: this is as close as they can afford to get.

BTW: I had the best seats I've ever had to a Panthers game on Sunday. We were in a box. Sadly, they were wasted on a boring game.
