I do wonder if the guy who posted this on Reddit has since sobered up?

 

I've been to plenty of Panther games and have seen fans plastered. I remember the Cardinals playoff game when Jake stunk it up and these two people in front of me were like, "Jake you f***ing piece of s***" very really with a woman and her two kids next to them. Alcohol brings out the a**hole in a lot of us, as much as Jake deserved that that night.

 

On the flip side, I agree the atmosphere at Bank of America Stadium really isn't as electric as it is at other stadiums. i been to both a Falcons and Redskins game and it just felt different. I don't know if that has more to do with the team being newer and the city not having that burning passion for the team, or if it's because of restrictions by the stadium that prevent fans from cheering.

 

That might have been me and my buddy.  Sorry.

Have to makes sure that wine and cheese doesn't get knocked over.


People say this but the only time I've ever been asked to sit down was by a Kerrs Light drinkin Bubba.

That does it! I'm creating a character called Cabernet Brie. He will carry a glass of wine & a plate pf cheese to every game & educate people on how to behave at games. Things like clapping softly & sitting the entire game with correct posture...

Was she a lot bigger than you?


No I was with family, and didn't feel like security's bullshit with my family there with me.

There is a logical disconnect many of you are failing to realize.

 

The tickets are expensive and rich people have most the money.

 

My experience at Bobcats and Panthers games is that, unless you're sitting in the nosebleeds, you'll be sitting next to wine and cheese people. This isn't necessarily bad. I wish people would cheer for the team, but I also don't want to see brawls and alcoholics when I go to the game.

 

Charlotte is a nice city unlike some of the cities up north. Comparing the fans in places like Detroit and Philly to Charlotte is a mistake. Sure those fans are loud but you really don't want the crime statistics they'd bring to Charlotte just for a noisy stadium.

 

You want that rare breed of white collar worker who can check the wine and cheese at the entrance and enter a primitive state from kickoff to the final whistle, then drive home sober while listening to new age radio.

It's instances like this, and the entire culture of BofA Stadium that limits our in-house fan base.

Admittedly, it's been years since I've been to a game (I'm just realizing now that I haven't lived in CLT for 6 years), but indicators from the Huddle and other sources lead me to believe that things aren't much different.  The result is that our home field advantage really only comes in the forms of comfort and convenience for our players and little more.  It's not that the environment is a boost, only that it is less hostile and less of a hassle (travel, strange facilities, literally being away from home) than playing on the road.

And that just... sucks.  Couple that with being a new(ish) franchise in a small market full of various transplants (a lack of legacy) and you get something that, frankly, lacks any personality to speak of.

Hopefully, as younger people who quite literally grew up with the franchise and have more passion for their home town team begin having more purchasing power over the next decade (along with winning ways, fingers crossed), that might change.

Until then, honkies (my word for the wannabe wine and cheese types of CLT) call the shots and ultimately decide the atmosphere.

Maybe I'm the only one here that thinks getting completely wasted in public is only ok for white trash and college students.

i wouldnt be completely opposed to limited alcohol, or even no alcohol at the games... like 2 tears offs per ticket or something like that. yeah you will have someone who dont drink that shares the tear offs, but so what..

It doesn't always have something to do with alcohol.  When we're on D I want to yell and cheer my ass off to try and rattle the opposition, and I don't drink an ounce of alcohol at games.  It's easy to say that the people who are yelling and cheering for their team are drunk or under the influence, but that's far from the case many times....
