My name is Alex and I have been lurking and posting on CSR for about 3 or 3 1/2 years. I just got done reading the "Final Goodbye" thread by PantherTrain. And instead of its desired purpose of making everyone on here look stupid and intolerant, it ended up making me think about exactly how much I appreciate all of you and the mods. I am not afraid to admit that I am a relatively new Panthers fan. I have been following the "die-hard" route for about 5 years. I dont use any other site for my Panther news. I used to go to Carolina Huddle and Cat Crave to try and get the most Up To Date news. However, with the amount of people on this blog and the dedicated Mods(who are actually knowledgeable and able to articulate their thoughts cohesively) that can effectively convey their points without judging or condemning one another(aside from the occasional ribbing). Without this site my knowledge of the Panthers would be severely diminished. The analytical breakdown of plays, the constant conversation, the 1200 post game day threads, The Monday Morning Optimist.....all of these are great tools for young fans and as a growing franchise that is most of what we have. In addition I also subscribe to quite a few other SBNation NFL blogs and I am happy to say that we are definitely one of the more active sites. Anyway, after reading about how unhappy PantherTrain was here I just thought I would make a fanpost to show how much I LOVE this site. So from the bottom of my heart, Thank you. Thank you to James, Jaxon, BW, ERL, CyberJAG, Rick, King, all the random Posters and anyone else I might be forgetting for providing a place where passionate fans can come and discuss the only NFL team that really matters OUR CAROLINA PANTHERS!!!! KEEP POUNDING!!!
