Many local Panthers fans belong to Roaring Riot, the unofficial team fan club that boasts 2,200 members in 35 states and 10 foreign countries. Sean Singleton, who works in Ballantyne for Payzer, a financial technology startup, is president of Queen City Riot, the Charlotte chapter. He says at home games the club's family-friendly tailgates raise money for the Cam Newton Foundation. For away games, members like to party in Dilworth or travel together to provide the team hometown spirit. "I've been a huge Panthers fan since they become a team in '95," Singleton says. He and wife Jennifer take their 3-year-old son to the team's Christmas tree lighting at the stadium as well as to training camp and Fan Fest in the summer. "You're starving for football at that point in time," he says. Ashley Jagielnicki, a Ballantyne superfan who works at Carolinas Medical Center, is already anticipating traveling with Roaring Riot to Tampa for New Year's. "It's a birthday present to myself," she says. "I can't wait because it's such a fun experience to be with so many Carolina fans." Two years ago, the Barbees went on the Tampa trip.
