Re: Fairweather Fakers

Growing up, I was a Barry Sanders fan. I followed the Lions because of him so I wouldnt say I was a fan of Detroit, just a fan of Sanders. When he retired, I stopped watching football & it wasnt until around 2004 that I started following the Panthers again. I was excited that we finally had a team back in 1995, but I was still following Barry at the time.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

for me it was about the coaches and will never forget landry and lomardi, boy they were great, but as far as following the players and rooting for the teams, i had no favorite.  when Carolina came along i became an instance fan of the players and the team. 
it's about like being a acc fan, although a lot of conferences have great  programs, i live in north carolina and get excited about football and basketball and have always followed the tarheels.  it's my team, like the panthers!

Re: Fairweather Fakers

One pro team and one college team...Just cannot seriously pull for any other pro team, other than rutting for teams playing the other NFC South Division teams...(really not all that pumped over watching other pro games on the tube)...Do tend to pull for certain NFL head coaches...ie., if Singletary coaches the Browns or Cowher the Bills I'd take not eof those games---the inverse is also true---I can not pull for any team coached or owned by J Jones N Turner or the Tuna   

here N Football gets the 24-7 attention that a pro team would-media-radio talk shows local tv coverage wise...so Saturdays are devoted to Husker FB...get a bit much at times but N FB is just part of growing up in the State...

Many Bears, Chiefs, Broncos, Packers and Viking fans here---which fits better geographically...other Carolina fans here---but we are heavily out numbers by the aforementioned teams...

Re: Fairweather Fakers

Yeah I'm not really sure how you can pull for 2 different teams. I mean I like other players around the league, like Rothlisberger and Peyton Manning, but I don't pull for any other team than the Carolina Panthers. I have a friend who roots for both the Cowboys and Panthers, I dont understand it. But I always make sure to give him grief about Tony Romeo and Roy "Butterfingers" Williams.

That is blasphemy.

Re: Fairweather Fakers

But isn't it a little crazy that most people on here (Albeit Panthers fans)have favor towards another team in some way-CRAZY. Like I said, growing up we didnt have a team here so it was whoever. But having two teams is whack!! Straight up. And I can't stand the Cowboys-my brother likes them still. Growing up it was Pitt vs Dallas between us. He stuck with them though-TRADER

Re: Fairweather Fakers

So, he stuck with his team AND he's the traitor?
