How many true, lifelong Panthers fans are actually out there?


Recommended Posts

Chances are, unless you were born on or after October 26, 1993, you are not a lifelong Panthers fan. 

If you were lucky enough to be born on 00/00/00 A.P. (Anno Panthera) then you are currently a measly 21 years old.

Since kids usually start cheering for certain teams by the time they are 5 or so I can even say with fair certainty that if you are older than 26 you had a fav team before the Panthers.


Soooooo...in honor of the off season and because I think it would be cool to know, how many of you can claim to be a lifelong Panthers fan?  Don't tell a fuging lie if you are older than 26.


And for the rest of us....I am older than 26.  I have something I need to say.

My real name is Tony and I...I used to be a Falcons fan.

i'm 28 and didn't pay attention to pro football before the panthers.  the only pro sports team i really gave a crap about was the atlanta braves.


I'm originally from the Atlanta area and a lifelong Braves fan like you.  I don't know how I would feel if Charlotte ever got a MLB team.  I think I would stay loyal to the Braves. 


I know I would.

I'm 25. Born in 1990 and have been a Panther fan since 95'. I was a new fan of the game and they were a new team. As a 5 year old I picked them for the logo and color scheme and have stuck with them ever since. Being a fan of a team in another region hasn't been easy. I remember "watching" entire games on ESPN Gamecast because there was no such thing as Red Zone or Sunday Ticket.


Age 5 or 6 here rocking a Panther t-shirt. My bowl cut was the GOAT.

I don't really think it's fair to judge someone before the Panthers even existed. I also don't think it's fair to judge someone before they even truly know what a football is.

That being said, I've rooted for the Panthers since I wad 5 years old. Should be around year 2000.

I can honestly say, life long football fan. Never called any team my own til the Panthers came along.

I'm over the hill.


Over the hill 30, 40, 50?  What are we talking about PC?

I believe you but if you are 30+ and you NEVER had a favorite team before the Panthers?  Really?


Closet Cowboys fan...admit it.

    • I have to agree. To be fair, I don't feel like the bar was very high here. His first year I thought I would be able to just watch the games with zero expectations. I was almost upset I didn't get a year of low expectations,  because missing the playoffs wouldn't hurt so much. We outplayed my expectations by a mile last year. Losing 8 or 9 games by a score or less showed we were competitive in almost every single game we played. It felt like we belonged inside the top 20 of the league. Which we had no business even sniffing judging by the personnel we had. The defense has grown at a ridiculous rate. I honestly believe the offense isn't far behind. It may not be until next year before it really takes off, because we need to strengthen the o-line. All I know, is Rhule and Co. saw the issues we had.....and made some valid attempts to fix them. (o-line is questionable considering options we could have gone after in draft) But all in all, it was refreshing to see our weaknesses being addressed.  
    • This is an extremely premature thread. Two games against the worst team in the league and a saints team who didn’t have half a dozen top shelf players playing as well as a bunch of offensive coaches out with covid. Real tests for me in the first half of the season are the Vikings, Eagles and Dallas. Vikings are much, much better than their record indicates and the Eagles and Dallas have explosive offenses. We come out of the first 8 games with a 7-1 or 6-2 record I’ll feel more confident going forward. The real tests on this schedule are the Bucs, Cardinals and Bills. Those are the elite teams we face this year. I wanna see how we play against them before I eat crow on anything. Darnold is playing steady, solid football and that’s great. Before the season I predicted this would be his best statistical season but that the real tests would be how he performs in big moments. Remember we’re trying to see if he’s a franchise qb going forward. If we want to give him that bigger contract he needs to prove he’s a guy you can trust to make plays in big moments, in big games.
