7. Native Charlotteans have stood fast with the Panthers
Yes, Charlotte born and bred folks do exist and we’ve always stood by our hometown team. As the city has doubled and tripled its population, pulling in lots of new residents from the North and Midwest, the Panthers have become a team to be remembered and feared. The team’s youthful energy and down-to-earth charm reflect a city that is welcoming and up-and-coming.
8. We want this more than Denver
Take a look at the Denver Broncos sideline on any given Sunday and tell me if you think they can match the calm and collected confidence that the Panthers have evidenced in every game this year. “The Sheriff” can ride off into the sunset with his chicken Parm and his mopey face, we’ll take the ring thank you.
