I was thinking after the game last night the differences between the fan experience at Panthers games and last night's Hornets game. I realize last night was something special (being a homecoming of sorts for our beloved Hornets), but do you think the Panthers brass has any desire to replicate that feeling for the Panthers fans?
Jerry Richardson was at the hive last night and he experienced what is was like to have a fan-first experience. Every employee in the place was cordial, friendly, and wished my wife and I a good evening. Everything the Hornets did last night was fan-centric (from the top notch giveaways to the friendly service and fan acknowledgement). They did it up right.
Do you feel the same way at Panthers games? Do you feel it is truly fans first or do you feel the team has a money-first mentality? The fans were rewarded last night for the patronage and thanked continually. I'm getting the feeling that Carolina has gotten used to being the best show in town and has let their service slip. I know we will never see Jerry Richardson pumping his fists like Jordan last night, but isn't it time to thank the fans for sticking with our up and down, inconsistent team?
