I can't agree with that DD.
Only problem with out fanbase is that it isn't big enough. Other than that, its similar to every other NFL team. Except the Cowboys, because their fanbase sucks.
I think we have a sizeable fanbase. Even here, we have numerous fans from out of state who have no personal ties to the Carolinas.
The problem is the passion and the indifference. It leads to apathy and acceptance of mediocre results.
Look at Philly. Those fans hate Reid's guts for the most part because of what, two under-performing seasons? Dude made the playoffs nine years IIRC and took them to multiple NFCCGs in a row as well as a Superbowl.
Philly fans aren't a group that other fanbases should look to model themselves after, but my point is, they remain passionate. Not saying they're right in the Reid situation, but because they are impassioned and adamant about what they want, their owner appeases.
