yeah, one of my first posts was ripping Mike Minter for not retiring at the end of the 2006 season, not like his knees were going to get any better in time for the next season.

One time I misread twitter and thought mike goodson guaranteed a win...actually it was a chick talking to him saying we would win....epic fail for me

I didnt used to have Directv like I do now, so I would used to spend my whole weekend (when the draft was on Sat/Sun) watching the NFL Draft online from the NFL website. Waiting for the names to be scrolled across the screen one by one at a time. Yup, that's how I watched the Panthers picked Thomas Davis.

 

I used to also watch all my Panthers game from a little 13' tv/vcr combo that had bad coloration. Antenna and the location sucked so most of the time I was watching it in black and white pretty much.

 

During the 03'-04' Playoffs games vs. Cowboys/Rams/Philly I went further in time and was watching it from my dad's early 90s wooded tv set. But I enjoyed it. I was fortunate that the SuperBowl was played on CBS and was able to catch it. Thank God!

1994, I just started watching football at the young age of 9. Living in SD, watching the Chargers get blown out in the Super Bowl to San Fran. Decided to be a day one fan of a new franchise to say I've been there since the beginning. Having family in NC, and having gone there every summer since being a wee one, the obvious choice was the Panthers over the Jags (thank god my family summer visits weren't to Jax!).

Never missed a single game, and never will.
The highs, the lows, the very highs, the lowest of the lows, through thick and thin, through Micky Mouse gloves and Pickles, this is my team and will be until I die.

When I die I want to be filleted and fed to a real panther.

I will add that I became a fan after cam joined the panthers. I live in new york and watched the giants win both of their superbowls but was never attached to them for some reason. I thought when cam joined the panthers that this would be a good time to choose a team and stick with it. That was three years ago, a long time through the ups and downs of losing seasons. I have come to really like the panthers history and spirit and all the players on the squad. Even if cam leaves in the future, I will still be a panther fan as this is my home now. I thought I should just add a different perspective.

Respect for your honesty! No shame in that answer despite what others may say. Might I suggest that you watch the Cardiac Cats documentary by NFL films regarding our '03 Super Bowl run? Just make sure you turn it off before Kasay shanks it.

For the record, I don't blame that loss on Kasay. I truly think Brady would have marched down the field regardless of the gifted field position. Much love for #4. Our D Line was virtually non-existent that game.

Spygate obviously had a hand in that as well.

I get your sentiment, but not everyone can be lucky enough like most of us to be able to claim fandom since the inception.

What I love seeing is Cam giving the TD ball to the kids. He's building a future hard core fanbase. Remember, we're still a first generation stable of fans. These kids are getting a life long memory and will turn out to be what makes the future of the fan base gnarly.

i moved here from colorado in 2002. i didn't give too much of a poo about football, but i spent the elway era fifty miles south of denver, so i was sort of a broncos fan by default i guess. i watched the panthers superbowl in 03 and adopted them as my team, but didn't legitimately start watching games until halfway through the 2005 season. i remember the bears game where delhomme got sacked like eight times and they stifled our offensive attack as the first game that really truly pounded the poo out of me emotionally, and that's where i now consider my birthplace as an emotionally-attached fan of the carolina panthers rather than just a casual observer.

 

eight years later i'm spending too much time on this dumbass football forum for the fifth straight year with you motherfugers. it's been a long decade and i had better a get a superbowl out of this poo.
