@Panthers: QB Cam Newton wants #Panthers fans to GET LOUD on Sunday! Are you ready? http://t.co/XYZqBGwvei

Instead of appealing to us to make noise, maybe they should address the losers that sit on their ass and complain when real fans stand and yell.

 

Instead of appealing to the fans to make noise, maybe they should make sure they address everything they need to do ON THE FIELD.

Didn't say they aren't working hard ... that's what I want them to concentrate on, though. There have been times I've seen players go crazy waving their arms on the field, trying to get the crowd riled up, and guess what ... they miss their assignments and allow a first down or a score. They need to concentrate on their jobs ... the crowd either will or won't be loud, and their reactions mostly are due to how well the team is doing on the field.

 

It's all I'm saying.

 

Yes ... our fans need to be loud and proud, and for the most part, they are. I read all the time on this board -- have for years -- about the "wine and cheese" crowd and people being told to sit down and shut up, and people even getting kicked out over such.

 

I've been going to games since the Death Valley days ... and up until last year I went to every single home game; never missed one tick of a home game, in fact (health issues put an end to that). I sit in a so-called wine-and-cheese section (135) and I've never seen that happen. Our section, and the surrounding ones, are always up and rowdy. The only time I've seen anyone kicked out because of standing up was in the Cowboys playoff game, when I had security escort four Cowboys fans out because they were standing (one grown woman even in her seat), spilling beer, being obnoxious and physically assaulted me and others around them.

 

I get tired of the same old mostly false stories about how bad our fan base is.

I've seen other people sitting and not cheering wildly, but no one has ever given me a hard time for standing up in front of them and cheering or beating on the seat in front of me...provided they weren't sitting in it at the time. You're supposed to cheer on defense, and after a score or big play, not the entire game, and you're not supposed to do the fuging wave on offense. I've sat all over the stadium and never had a bad experience with an older, more sedate fan. I think some of you just need something to bitch about.

 

FWIW, I don't want to have a stadium like the Jets or the Eagles. I like that people can feel safe bringing their kids to a game. I've been in some scuffles at several games and after it was over and I realized I'd let it come to blows, or close to it, over a football game I wasn't even playing in, I felt really silly, and lucky no one got seriously hurt or thrown out/in jail.

Going to Panther games has always just felt different than other venues I have been to. In many environments people go to the game in order to be part of the atmosphere and to let lose and enjoy the day. Many times it feels like our fans are approaching it like it's a play or comedy show in that the crowd is waiting to respond. It's just different.

You've been lucky.  I stopped going to games because I literally had people telling me to sit down every game.  The example I used earlier was based on real events.  I was standing and cheering after a play.  Some fat slob sitting a few rows behind was yelling at me to sit down.  The worst part is that the guy had on a Giants shirt, and the Giants weren't even there playing!!!!  I turned around and told him no, I will not sit down.  He called security.  They told me to sit down or leave.  If I want to sit down, I'll stay home on my fuggin couch (which is what I've done since 2009).  

 

I would love it if our fans were as passionate as Jets or Eagles fans.  I'm sick of the polo t-shirt douche bags and their dumb ass kids showing up in the 2nd quarter and leaving after an hour when the kid runs out of food to ram down his throat.

I'll be in 1A on Sunday! So pumped!

 

If someone tells me to sit down they will be getting the double solute.

I feel that perhaps there are some key details you are leaving out of this story...

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
