Win & they will come.

The team has been 8-8, 2-14, 6-10, & currently 2-6. You can't expect 70,000+ Panther fans to come running into BOA stadium. When the team is winning this fanbase is a rabid & intense as any come game time. In '08, after we went 12-4, BOA stadium was jam packed with Panther fans & absolutely rocking for the Cardinals game.

The Eagles, Steelers, etc are considered to have better fan bases. It isn't true. They are just more consistent at winning. Look at Philly this year. Their stadium was a ghost town during their last home game.

Just because fans don't flock in groves to come spend hard earned money & cheer for a losing product doesn't make them "bandwagon" fans. Most of them still watch the team every week; sitting at home on their sofa. I don't blame them. Once the team starts winning consistently there will be far less opposing team fans & far less tickets being scalped.

Win & they will come.

Doesn't mean poo to me really. Don't care for anymore JR letters. I thank PSL owners long before I'd appriciate JR. This isn't an accomplishment that had any significance, well except if you're a fan of the Panthers for the buisness aspect and even then you'd have to be ok locking people into contracts rather than have the product sell the seats. I'd rather see a satdium full because the team is winning and derserve that kind of crowd. As stated above I was at that Cardinal game in 08 and after Dwills first score of the game 30 seconds in, that place was louder than a Dallas Cowboy playoff game in the 90s, I went to a couple of those as well.

It is all about winning, as it should be. The crowd is something the team earns. The crowd will keep going for a while but 2-3 losing seasons and it falls back on the team's shoulder to get the crowd back again.

Hardly.... you may have to fork over about $20.

What I'd really like to know is if BOA has ever had every seat filled. Sold means nothing... hell, about every team in the NFL sells out... except Jacksonville...

'97 Playoffs vs Dallas comes to mind.

Possibly the 2008 train wreck against Arizona... at least at the beginning of the game.
