There will always be "weak" fans out there... I can only speak of the Seahawks fanbase in terms of experience, but I can say if a team is under performing with a team that shouldn't, there is obviously tremendous contempt. If you look at the Panthers roster it has much better than 1-4 talent, seems like there is some pretty questionable playcalling (seahawks can relate) and I think it's more than ok for the fans to express that. Especially if they are a long time fan that has been through the ups and downs of the franchise. Saying just "the fans are the problem" is a cop out to the real situation. Yeah, there are bandwagon fans in carolina, there are those fans everywhere. If the team was performing to expectation, this issue wouldn't come up. It's just not a shocker to me I suppose. I don't think Rivera is a good coach at all, and I am pretty sure if he was gone, more "real" fans would come to the games. Same thing happened with Jim Moron Jr and the Seahawks. But I don't know the feel of Rivera among Panther fans, I would assume it's pretty negative. FO decisions DO impact not only product on the field, but fans in the stands. Thats the real problem.
Holy crap............................ a fan from another team that has a real conversation.
Thank you for stopping by you made my day.
