When the fuggin Broncos almost outnumber panther fans, that is fugging sad. This funk that started with the Cardinal playoff loss has got to end now. I met more Bronco fans yesterday with no ties what so ever to Denver or Colorado. Just random assholes from Raleigh, Wilmington, etc claiming diehard fan status.

You mean to tell me our defense's play isnt filling the stands? j/k

SCP we appreciate your commitment and loyalty to this team, despite others choosing not to. Whenever I tell people from here I'm a Panther fan, they either say "why" or "Panthers suck!"

We are a new franchise and we won't have total loyalty until our kids grow up Panthers fans. It takes time.

Oh and this guy named Peyton Manning helps too. Most fans are fair weather and don't post on football forums.

we're a state of wal-mart tar heels and blue devils who know nothing other than national titles and universal acclaim. the panthers have never won anything in their lifetime so you get poo like this.

it happened during the saints super bowl run too-people just couldn't understand why i was pulling for the colts over them.

It will only change with consistant winning. Winning every other year and now four years of losing does not bring fans in droves. We start winning and we will have a homefield advantage and a lot more support in general.

On the train from Raleigh there were some bandwagon bronco's fans who were really just Peyton Manning fans. Another Broncos fan walked by with a Rod Smith jersey and they didnt know who that was. As I'm sitting in the stadium at about 12 there seemed to be 90 percent Broncos fans in their seats early, it was......discouraging. I was in seat 27 row 26 sec 521 and was surrounded by Denver fan's. I know NC is full of transplants but this was crazy. When I caught some of the game on DVR at home it looks even worse, a sea of orange.

1) Charlotte is a city of transplants who are loyal to the teams they grew up with.
2) Not every Carolina native dropped their favorite team to support the upstarts. Love and loyalty run deep in many fans.
3) If the team were more successful the youth of the area would jump aboard. No one likes a loser.

why would you cheer for the panthers when you could be a patriots, cowboys, or steelers frontrunner and be surrounded by other fans just like you?

i mean how else do people with no ties to the area become fans? and i mean people my age (mid 20s), not people who were adults before we got the panthers. i know people who cheer for the blue devils in basketball, patriots in football, and new york yankees in baseball. how else could that happen?
