So I just bought my tickets for the Panthers game when they host the Seattle Seahawks. This will be my first Regular season game I have ever attended. I have spent the last 4 years in the military so I haven’t been able to get down to Charlotte to attend a game and before that I was too young to afford tickets and my parents were always broke.
I’ve been so excited ever since I bought my tickets. I’ll be sitting in section 134 row 2. Its right behind the Panthers sideline at about the 25 yard line. If anybody has sat in section 134 give me some pros and cons. The point of this post is to point out what I have read regarding games at Bank of America stadium.
After researching about BoA on different sites. I have found a very common theme. We Panther fans are pathetic. I have found that when we host teams like the Steelers, Redskins, Packers, Cowboys, it’s more of a home game for them then it is us. I've got more and a poll after the jump...
Another common theme I have found is that if you like to stand and cheer (which is the whole reason you attend a football game) you’ll have about half the section screaming at you to sit down because they can’t see. Are you kidding me? If you want to sit on your butt, then you should have stayed home and watched it from your couch.
Also another gripe….my cousin went to the Vikings-Panther game last year and said that there were more empty seats then there were filled. If I do recall the season wasn’t even lost at that point and if we would have won that game it would have put us at 2-3 or 3-3, if I remember right. As die-hard panther fans we have to change this fact. We need to start going to more games and getting involved in the game. We need to become a factor and let the other team feel are presence.
Just a heads up, if anybody is going to be sitting in section 134 during the Seahawks game, beware I am going to be standing(Gasp!) and cheering(Double Gasp!!) at the game. We need to start a new trend and it starts with just a few hundred people taking a stand and cheering and standing and making home games feel like home games again. We can do it, one fan at a time!
