Yes. I was a Skins fan, born in SW Virginia. Been a Panthers fan since the night they made the announcement Charlotte was awarded the team (was attending UNCC) even though I'm back living in Virginia. I still pull for the Skins against anyone but the Panthers but don't follow them at all in the way I do the Panthers.

I have. Was a Buffalo Bills fans. But you know the story. Burned everything I had that said Bills and became a Panthers fan when they were awarded a franchise.

I was born and raised in LA so I was a die hard Raiders fan. When they left for Oakland (again), I spent a year searching around for a new team. I saw some *rare* highlights of Panthers games and for some reason, I started to follow them...perhaps it was because they were brand new. It was late in the '95 season so I didn't jump to them entirely, but that changed the following year and I haven't switched since.

For me, no and will never.

However, I don't think anyone here is going to come out and admit to bandwagoning.

My other option would be the Cards. Why would I put myself through that?

Fug no. Lose interest in the NFL? Yeah. But never change my loyalty unless we lost the Panthers and a new NC team came in.

No way, never in a million years. Hell, I'm heading down to the team store at lunch today to waste some more money on Panther stuff that I don't even need. I do this about once every 2 weeks.

The only way I'd consider switching teams is if they moved to LA.

I don't think I would watch at all without a local team. As much as they drive me crazy I just choose to care less than I once did.

Ditto. Rooting for another state/city to win is beyond rediculous.

Never, unless the Panthers someday move and even then I wouldn't "switch teams" - I would just become a casual NFL fan.

Has never crossed my mind. I have switched nba teams from the Knicks to the bobcats though.

Panthers are too much a part of my life; of my own doing. Season ticket holder, tattoo, group of friends with same love for the team. And of course my 8 month old son is named Cameron.

Love this team.

I grew up in South Carolina, and have been a panther fan since the inaugural season. I have since moved to Oklahoma, and have lived here for 10 years.. the only way I could fathom switching at this point, is if Oklahoma got their own team. I don't think anyone could blame me for that.. that's how we all became Panthers fans to begin with.
