I get it why we have lots of Redskins (former TV market) and Steelers (transplants) fans here... but wtf are there so many dumbass Cowboys fans here???

I mentioned in another thread, the Redskins old owner George Preston Marshall was a vehement opponent of racial integration and a huge advocate for racist policies. In reaction a lot of the Redskins market (which probably would have included NC at the time) started to cheer for their division rivals the Cowboys in protest. It was many decades ago, but that would've been passed down through generations. The Panthers just need some winning seasons to steal those fans.

Does anyone else find it hilarious that the saints fans are all of a sudden loyal? Since when? oh yeah circa 2009.

Oh and yes, facebook is the determining factor to a fans loyalty...lol

winning changes things.

The art of a true fan base is having loyal fans (even when you lose. i.e. Browns, Chiefs, Bills, and Lions fans). Gaining fans from winning doesn't mean you have a loyal fan base, it means that the majority of your fan base consists of fair weather fans who are supportive in the good times and critical/non-existent in the bad. You can believe that.

This is not really a measure of fan loyalty, its the percentage of fans within a 50 mile radius of the city. So really the Panthers are hurt here by Charlotte's location because the 50 mile radius includes a lot of Tennessee and Georgia and leaves out large chunks of the Carolinas. So even though there is no rival city within 50 miles, state lines go a long way in determining favorite teams

That may be true, but how does that explain all the white trash redneck goofy ass Cowboys fans I often see?

The Cowboy fanbase is the epitome of bandwagon. Someone hear's the name America's team and says well I live in America, so they must be my team.

You can believe that.

how did the browns get their fans? where do they come from?

panthers dropped into the middle of an area with fans from a lot of different teams and an area that draws people from other areas who are already loyal to other teams.

panthers are going to have to rely on an originally small base of fans slowly creating generational fans and converting fans of other teams. to convert fans, you have to give them a reason beyond, you know....just being here. you win over fans by being something we haven't been...a winning team. create hype by winning and then building on momentum the next year. its a snowball effect. you get rolling and the small snowball of fans gets bigger.


and all that hating on fairweather fans going on is ridiculous. most loyal fans start out as fairweather fans and picking up fairweather fans isn't a bad thing because it usually means something good is going on.

I don't really know if Facebook is a great criteria for measuring fan loyalty :unsure:

That said, winning fixes everything. The fanbase gets better when your team becomes a consistent winner.
