Cutting Edge Football With Carolina Panthers Tickets

By: Al Terry

For a relatively new football team, Carolina Panthers tickets are pretty high in demand. This is due to the fact that the Panthers have already distinguished themselves from the rest of the pack as a team to watch. They have a distinctive and hard hitting way of playing football which is truly unforgettable.

The Carolina Panthers play in the National Football League and are also a part of the NFC South and the American Football Conference. Their home turf is the Bank of America Stadium and they have already picked up one Conference championship win and two Division titles.

An Early Fan Favorite

Right at the beginning, Carolina Panthers tickets were sold out and fans welcomed this brand new expansion team to the field with warmth. The Panthers officially hit the field in 1995 but long before that, when the initial buzz of an NFL expansion hit North Carolina, the citizens stunned the media and the football world with their enthusiasm for a new team. The team was officially awarded to the Carolinas in 1993 and jubilation was widespread.

The team hit the football field in 1995 and needless to say, Carolina Panthers tickets were pretty much sold out. The team was one that was highly anticipated for the simple reason that the Panthers had the opportunity to put together a really killer team, thanks to free agency. Accordingly, the Panthers went down in history as being the very first expansion team to win their inaugural game.

Stunning The League With Success And Scandal

The Panthers literally ripped through the competition in 1995, leaving the league stunned that such a young team could accomplish so much. As Carolina Panthers ticket sales soared, the Panthers decimated teams like the New York Jets and the San Francisco 49ers. By 1997, the team was starting to face its first set of problems off the field. At the time, the Panthers were already showing signs of fading on the field but off-field the team had to deal with a number of scandals. These include Rae Carruth, who was sentenced for murdering his pregnant girlfriend. Kerry Collins was found to have an alcohol problem and had made racial slurs to a number of teammates. Fred Lane was killed by his wife in a domestic dispute.

All of these factors hit the Panthers hard and in 2001, the team lost 15 straight games which is an NFL record for most consecutive losses. But the fans didn't let the team down and Carolina Panthers tickets were still hot property. Accordingly the Panthers called in John Fox, who put in some defensive discipline into the team's training. Soon they had what many experts feel was the best defensive line up in the game. They made it to the Super Bowl finals in 2003 and were part of a sizzling game that many feel is one of the best Super Bowl games ever. Though the team lost, they came to be known as the Cardiac Cats for their close calls and style of play. Do not miss the Panthers in action when they come to a city near you.
