No doubt a dedicated bunch, Panthers fanatics have followed in the footsteps of center Ryan Kalil, who in July took out a full-page newspaper ad guaranteeing a Super Bowl.

Same newspaper, same length. The only difference? They went in the completely opposite direction.

A group of Panthers fans, calling themselves the “Perturbed Panthers PSL Owners Federation," bought a full-page feature in the Charlotte Observer, which can be viewed here.

In it, the "group of business folks and long-time personal seat license (PSL) owners" blasts owner Jerry Richardson, head coach Ron Rivera and former general manager Marty Hurney, who was fired in October.

They accused Richardson of building “The Panthers Pyramid Scheme," entailing that Richardson is focused solely on making money despite the team's below-average performance.

Rivera, who could soon join Hurney on the unemployment line, was hit with this zinger: “His clock management would be a mystery even to the Swiss.”

Mostly, the ad was formulated to blow off some steam as yet another playoff-less season winds down. It ends with a plea to Panthers management to treat the fans right, because they've been "hoping and paying for nearly 20 years!"

Somewhere in Charlotte, Cam Newton is thinking to himself, "at least it wasn't me this time."
