NC was only "Redskins territory" because that's the way the media contracts played out.

Half the dipshits who still claim to be diehard Redskins fans because this is "Redskins country" are probably also diehard Braves fans. How does that work? Shouldn't they be Nats fans? Atlanta is far closer to most of NC than the DC area and a far closer cultural tie as well. This was never "Redskins country". The diehard Redskins fans simply expose themselves as people who will accept whatever the media feeds them. In other words, they're fuging idiots. Their opinion is not worth being heard.

you're a real accomadating barkeep aren't you. so you actually have people come to your bar to watch the panthers, when they are on local every sunday, and also have the added attraction of not being able to watch any of the other games. i bet u have a booming crowd. no wonder the nfl sunday ticket is so popular.

 

Yes....we are in downtown Charlotte and we have over 1700 people that come through on all the home games.  And yes, when the Panthers are on that is the ONLY game I show and the only sound you'll hear (except for music during the commercials).  And no, there are no other bars in downtown that host more people than we do on game days.  So....if you're trying to make a funny, sarcastic comment about my business decisions....it seems to be working out pretty well for me.  If you care enough to have to watch another game while the Panthers are on then you're not the kind of person we'd want to join us anyway.

what? this was redskins and colts country from the 50's and 60's, these oldtime longstanding fans of the nfl loved their teams and still do. by your reasoning anyone without a team in their region isnt a true fan, and this coming from someone who probably didnt even watch the nfl until the panthers came to charlotte. you have no idea of what you speak.

From the picture, it sure does look like people are upset to only get to watch the Panthers and you can clearly see how much it hurts business.

YouTube fail.

What I was trying to express is "I love this bar".

What is the name if your bar. Couple of buddies and I are looking for a new venue to watch the away Panthers games.

We used to frequent Stool Pigeons downtown, but it is not as good as it used to be....changed ownership.

I would rather give my patronage and money to a true and die hard Panthers fan.

Yes, it is. I've played around with the idea of the away games this year. I like to go to away games so we will see....
