Simple question, were you a fan of the Panthers before Newton was the Quarterback or after he became the Quarterback?

 

 

Personally, I was born in 1994 and my dad had me on the couch for every game as an infant. I even have a faint memory of the 96' Championship game when I was about 2 and a half. So, I can pretty much claim to be a lifelong fan. I don't ever recall missing a game in my life. I know for a fact I've not missed one since at least 2001.

Panther fan since the team was awarded to Charlotte, before then I was 49ers fan. I tried to root for both teams even though they were in the same division at the time. I have never regretted my decision on which team I chose, even during the 1-15 season.

Been a fan since Week 1 of the 2003-2004 season at the age of 13. Favorite player on this team is no other than 89, and fell in love with this team on that Delhomme to Proehl comeback victory vs. the Jags.

 

10 years as a Carolina Panthers fan.

This is kind of a silly question for The Huddle... Highly doubt many of us here became Panther fans overnight when we drafted Cam. Not saying those fans don't exist, but the Huddle is made up of more diehard Panther fans than say Cam Newton fanboys...

I became a Cam fan overnight the day we drafted him, that's for sure. And damn do we have a special QB...

The Camwagon is long gone, dude. My first posts to what was then the Panthers Huddle go back to when you were like 9.

Just look at members join date and how they voted! We've got a lot of band-wagoners since Cam came along. I'm not complaining though, we need all the support we can get!!

 

 

Edit: BTW I've been here since the announcement was made that we were getting a team.

What does it matter? A fan is a fan. As long as that person is not hopping off the team when they are not doing well then I don't care.

Since the first time I heard about Carolina was in the running for a team.  So I have been a fan of this football team even before the name was established.
