I am convinced Charlotte is only about 20% Panther fans

67 posts in this topic

Scientific survey says 49% Panthers crowd, 27% Broncos, 24% empty seats.

It's unlike any other stadium or market in pro sports.

Agreed, whats more sad is go watch Bobcats games this season. The Cats fans are loud, cheering and on their feet despite last season's debacle. Panthers might just have worse fan base in the NFL, maybe even worse than the jaguars.

I wonder how they would do in the RTP?

RTP would suffer the same fate as Charlotte IMO. Look at Canes games when the Sabers or Rangers or Flyers come to town.

I love going to Bobcats games, I always have a good experience arena-wise, even if the team sucks.

True. I'm one of three Panthers fans in the eastern part of the state, and I don't know if the other two would be willing to drive to Raleigh every Sunday. Charlotte is a haul, though. I can't make the trip on a regular basis.

Yeah, Raleigh is a huge transplant area too. Though PNC Arena is rocking all the time for the Cane's, one of the loudest in the league. Those Sabres-Canes games get pretty roudy and have extra police protection. Far more "protection of the house" from the fans.

in all honesty at the start of the game, seemed like there was a good amount of blue..Id say 70% were panther...but the lower level visitor side was all orange. Obviously when we were getting blown out, it was about 90% bronco fans and the cheering at the end made me shake my head...one of the louder times in the entire game.

Got to start winning folks, that's the "silver bullet". As much as it pains me to say it, Atlanta (after 45 years) has a home field advantage due to finally winning. I belive with all my heart it will come sooner than latter. Of course when it does, just wait for all the morons I spoke of in my above post to be "die hard" Carolina fans.
