I am convinced Charlotte is only about 20% Panther fans

Born and raised in NC. Panther fan since 10/26/93. Ask 3/4 of these a$$hole Dallas fans who Lance Rentzel of Chuck Howley were and you get "huh?". Ask dip$hit Steeler fans about the team they merged with for a while and you get "huh?" Ask band wagon Patriot fans who Steve Grogan was and you get "huh?". Well you get the idea. I honestly belive that we have a$$holes that check our schedule, then run out , buy that teams gear the week before and show up at BoA, claiming to be "die hards". Iam and will always be an unashamed Panther fan.

Overall I don't think a city of transplants is a good recipe for long-lasting success of an NFL franchise, but considering they "sell-out" almost every home game, I guess the business model is doing well enough.

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