Just look at members join date and how they voted! We've got a lot of band-wagoners since Cam came along.
You can't say that really I just think the Huddle is becoming more well-known within the Panther community.
Plus, I don't even know when I signed up ...but I've been lurking on the Huddle since the Super Bowl season ..didn't get a name or start posting for a couple years.

Were you just a College Football guy? Or what?
Too young to understand football haha, my parents weren't huge sports people so I just took a liking of the panthers when they played the pats in the superbowl and stuck with them ever since lol

Born in 1988, Smith's rookie year was my first as an every game watching fan.

Became a fan in 2003 when they went to the Super Bowl. I was 15 years old then. I have been a fan ever since. 10 years now.

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...
More like many fans became fans overnight after that Week1 debut performance vs. the Cardinals.
But glad to have them anyway. More fans, the stronger we are.

When it was announced we would get the Panthers I was kind of meh about it. I had watched a couple Super Bowls, my earliest football memory is the Cowboys destroying the Bills in the Super Bowl but I loved the Hornets. Not football. Then I watched the Hall of Fame game in 1995. It was just special. The excitement for the inaugural preseason game...The way we played that day. It didn't matter to me who was playing, they were Panthers.

(To add to my earlier post)
Before I moved to here in North Carolina at age 6, I lived in Wisconsin for two years (age4-5). Always knew of the Packers and Favre. I guess I can say that my dad and brother were somewhat a Packers fan; not so much though. I was too young and didnt care about football, but was tied to the Packers somehow. Being Asian back then, football was rare. Moved here in 96' and was introduced to the Panthers. Coincidentally, the Panthers played the Packers in the Playoffs, and as a stupid kid who knew nothing about football I was actually rooting for the Packers to win. Try to like them but as a kid was just never able to like sports at the age. If you know what I'm talking about: Pokemon' cards!
But, I remember I got my first Panthers Football from Burger King! Anyone remember those??? It was long back in the days where BK had it for like $5 if Im correct.
Finally at 13, I introduced the Panthers to myself and taught myself how the game was played. Since then, not just me but my whole family and GF are all Panthers fans. Had a great family night watching the Panthers' win over the Pats.

I was 13 when the team was accounced. At that age I did not have a favorite team. I did not like the redskin, ugly uniforms at the time....I sound like a girl on that one. I also hated anything atlanta becuase the braves where stellar back then and I got sick of hearing about them. I was a good baseball player then. Anyway I was really getting into football at that age and when we got the panthers , I knew I would root for my home team. I still long for the day that we will have generational fans and a real home field advantage. its coming but still has a long way to go.
My foundest panther memory. In 2003 I was in iraq and got my updates literally a week late. I was so pissed out to miss out on it. I nevermissed a game before that! Luckily my unit was rotated to the rear and I got a month leave to come home just in time to watch the playoffs! My heart jumped so much during the rams game it was comparable to combat. The super bowl was amzing and devestating at the same time. I got to watch it the day before I flew back to Iraq. In 2004 I took my rage out on enemy lol.
