Where were you seats yesterday?

850 miles north. When I did live in Charlotte, I went to about 5 games a season and couldn't talk the day after. I don't have a problem with your point being made though, but my old fan friends I used to go to games with confirmed the disgraceful attendance ratio that I assumed watching on the television.

So your 850 miles of separation gives you the insight to say what charlotte does or doesn't deserve?

Did everyone of normal intelligence or higher commit mass suicide?

It was disgraceful but it will not change for a while. A lot of it is PSL owners who don't have the time and can't afford to eat the price of tickets so don't make an effort to sell each ticket to a Panther but rather throw it on stubhub or give it to a scalper. Hard to blame them

We need more locals to go to games but a big percent of locals still root for their original team.

When my kids are buying their own tickets as lifelong PAnthers fans the atmosphere will be different.

And it happens elsewhere too. The Cowboys were outnumbered by bears fans for their Monday night game.

For some reason watching the game, despite our bad play, hearing loud cheers when they scored a TD bothered me the most. I'm aware why our fan base isn't solid, I've defended it or reasoned with it for a while and I made a this here thread stating the obvious. And I don't mean to be a drag for all of our good fans who show up and make noise, the fans who visit this message board aren't the ones selling out to opposing teams so this whole thread in this platform was useless.

Sorry for offending anyone here you guys aren't what pissed me off. I'm usually pretty even keel but this snowball effect thing is adding up.
