Got my early Christmas present. The Cowboys leave BoA stadium with a shiny "W" over the Panthers. Woo Hoo!

Dude, I hope you don't live in Charlotte! If all y'all Texans are gonna evacuate your state for greener pastures, AS IN CHARLOTTE, have the guts to become PANTHER fans! Those two BAD calls were a gimme for Dallas! More terrible calls of that nature will cost the NFL their credibility!
We love you 89!!!!!!!
COWBOYS S#$CK the refs you-know-what!

Just realized that 90% of your posts are based around Charlotte...there's something seriously wrong with you! Go away traitor! Or, perhaps, you only cheer on the winning team? What's next? Cheering on the Pats? What's this city coming to???

There are more Cowboys/Redskins fans in Charlotte than Panthers fans. Romo jerseys fly off the shelf. Meanwhile, Delhomme jerseys...

Funny you say this because I personally do know more Redskins/Cowboys fans in NC than Panthers fans, especially around the Triangle. But in Charlotte about everybody is a Panthers fan ... maybe not a fan of Delhomme but a does pull for the home team.

Personally, I've got to quit rooting for the Falcons because it'll be a good 5-6 years before I'll have anything to cheer about if I keep rooting for them so I may be very soon a Panther convert.

You must be joking. It seems like there are more and more jerseys for opposing teams at the stadium any given Sunday.

I hope the Pats go undefeated through the regular season and lose their first playoff game. I'll take that as a late Christmas present and an early birthday present at the same time.

Perhaps it has just seemed that way to me as a Falcons fan spending time in Charlotte with the NFC South rivalry. But strangely enough, I've been to games in Atlanta, Cincinnati, DC, and even Nashville, but never Charlotte.

You mean Charlotte has people who are fans of the home team?

The Panthers are a young organization relatively speaking + the fact that this is a "transplant" town. That's why there's a "minority" of Panther fans (most people have ties to their "home" teams right or wrong). Only time and being successful will add more fans.

Very good game last night. I'd have to say MMoore is definitely #2 to Delhomme for next year (haven't seen what Basinea (sp?) has done yet).

Agreed those two plays were game changers. After seeing those obv pass interference "non" calls, I really think they need to let the head coach challegence those type of plays.

I have no problems with people being fans of other teams, but it is very obnoxious when those fans rub a loss in the face of their own home team. Go ahead and cheer against the Panthers Moderator cut: Please dont flame other members debate the game not the members please Thank You . I guarantee that Stripes17 was a Panthers fan when they had their Super Bowl run and will be again when they are playing better.
