Sorry for link quality - phone

We could easily make a thread 100 pages about the crap that goes on at BoA Stadium.

IMHO I do feel that Panthers fans are targeted more by security and are held to a higher standard than opposing fans. I go to 4-5 games a year and am downtown tailgating for every home game whether I go in or not. Other teams fans are always around being loud, obnoxious, and aggressive.

The worst fan bases I've encountered the past few years have been the Saints, Falcons, Cowboys, Steelers. I was at the Raiders game last year and they may be near the top as well. Almost 2 big ass fights in my section alone. I still rember two morons in Bo Jackson jerseys cussing and yelling the entire game right in front of an usher and nobody asked them to pipe down. No real surprises there I guess.

I've never been to BofA stadium but I have been to FedEx and m&t bank and everyone is always standing yelling there asses off for their team and no one complains. Maybe something needs to be done where fake fans who don't wanna scream and cheer need to be asked to never come back because this is football not a summer baseball game.

I don't give a fug. When I go down for MNF this year I'm going to be screaming on defense and yelling fug the Pat's.

I was almost kicked out for getting into it with a group of Bucs fans. They were walking by our section giving us all the finger. Me, being in the first row, started shouting them down. Who gets in trouble? This guy, that's who. Maybe I shouldn't have started the whole "buccaneers are fuggin queers" chant but it felt justified. At least I wasn't chucking batteries at them, right?

I've shared this before on here but I went to a game 5-6 years ago and we sat in some seats that weren't ours and the lady behind us said we could only sit there as long as we didn't standup the entire game and were quiet.

Something is seriously wrong with the people who attend these games because from what I hear people think nfl football games are a day at the spa and are for relaxing. It's disgraceful

This is 100% true

The closest, and it isn't even close, I have ever been to getting in a physical altercation at BoA stadium is at

1.Ecu vs VT like 4-5 years ago when ECU blocked that punt and shattered all those dirty ass hokies national title dreams. We got our tickets off stub hub and of course they ended up in VTs side. Our purple shirts stuck out and u could prob spot us on TV.

2. ECU vs SCar like 2 years ago was pretty damn close too. My buddy actually choked some punk dude out and I thought i was gonna have to defend myself from some inbred redneck from "the upstate" in jean shorts when we were walking back to our cars on Moorehead.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
