I am convinced Charlotte is only about 20% Panther fans

The game Sunday was the 1st one i have been to in about 7 years. Safe to say for ever 5 panther fans i saw 1 or 2 bronco fans. Sad.

Transplants has a lot to do with it. For example, I live in NYC now. Do I cheer for the Jets or Giants now? Nope. I'm a Panthers fan. I was going to give the Jets a go, as they are in the AFC, but they suck, so why bother. Same exact thing is happening in Charlotte. Just because they move there doesn't mean they need to switch. And they definitely won't switch for an inferior product.

I haven't been to a Panthers game since the AZ debacle and won't return until they prove to me that I will show up and see a team worth seeing in person.

I couldn't believe the sound of the stadium during the punt return. I could have sworn i was in Denver.

Winning cures all ills. It's that simple.

It's that simple....and that hard. All at the same time :-(

Your logic doesn't really make sense.... all you need do is turn it around now that you don't live here and the Panthers suck, yo have free rein to pull for any team you want.

I'm a believer that you support your local team, just as you support your local businesses. I was a lifelong Raider fan until I moved to NC and 18 months later announced an NFL franchise was on the way, and that was before the Raiders went into the toilet so it's not like I was dumping a crappy team.

Most of the people where I live are Redskin fans because "they were the only team around..." But Charlotte is 2.5 hours away and DC is about 4.5 hours, so why not switch? Both teams suck hugely, but one is closer than the other.

Would you all still be a Panthers fan first and foremost if you moved to another city like Pittsburgh. Dallas, or San Francisco?

If so...then you have your answer.

That would make sense if any of the people at the game yesterday were from Denver, or before that Dallas, or Pittsburgh, or on and on and on. When San Fran played here in 2010 it was the same way. No way 30,000 Forty Niner fans flew cross country to watch that game, or for that matter were transplants. The vast majority are North/South Carolina natives that jumped on a bandwagon and hate the home team, plain and simple.
