Panthro's "Hollow suit" theory date back to 02?

Proof to back what up?

The fact that I owned PSLs and missed fewer than 8 games during the 17 seasons I attended in Charlotte and I know what I see?

The fact that fewer and fewer seat owners whom I had grown accustomed to sitting with up until the 2008 post-season now attend games at all?

The fact that most of the people who did arrive to sit in the seats surrounding mine were different every week and explained to me they had purchased tickets on the corner outside the stadium?

The fact that more and more opposing teams' fans are now attending games? The fact that you can go to a game between the Bucs and Panthers and see plenty of Pittsburgh and Dallas jerseys?

The proof is simply opening your eyes at any Panthers home game and looking around.

I'm seeing a lot of meaningless anecdotes and very little evidence of anything.

My anecdotal evidence of why people I know go to less games than they used to is that they got tired of weekly battle to see who could be more annoying to be around.....the drunk rednecks or the Sunday school crowd...neither of which ever learned to stand and cheer on defense and sit and shut up on offense or that the wave is lame.

Imagine that...the casual fan dies not understand that owning an NFL franchise is a multilingual million dollar "for profit" organization.

Everyone wants to believe that owners AND players own teams and play football for the live of the game and the enjoyment/ adoration of the fans.

Newsflash. Most (if not all) do it for the same reason....big money.

None of us would work or own companies without trying to maximize our earnings.

not to mention you know, the whole recession that we have been going through since 2008. Ya totally no reason for that to affect the purchasing of expensive tickets tickets that are considered a luxury not a necessity.

The JR haters just mad and clueless. They can blame JR for the 2009-2010 seasons if they want but that's about where it ends and it's in the past now. So y'all haters are just cry babies that need a good case of grow the fug up.

Hearing the truth really gets people's defense mechanisms all riled up...cry babies who need to grow up? Seriously you as a fan are part of the problem. You accept mediocrity in your life and have no issue with perpetuating that mentality across all facets of your mediocre existence.

There is nothing in our history that proves we are going to be ok. We have 4 winning seasons. God forbid we try to examine why.

Obviously have not attended any or very few games within the past 4 years.

Don't trust what I see and say? Go to a game- that is all.

This was also a contributing factor in selling my PSLs this past off season. It's more of a pain in the ass dealing with idiots and the entire ordeal of attending a game when you know that you have less than a 50% chance of seeing the team win or enjoying the whole "stadium fan experience," whatever the fug that is. Not to mention the constant threats on the big screen about behaving yourself, which occur about 6 times per game.
