The Carolina Panthers scored a big victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday to remain undefeated. While the game was in Carolina, a Packers fan brought a banner to hang in support of his visiting Green Bay team. Panthers quarterback Cam Newton didn’t appreciate it and showed his displeasure by tearing it down and taking it into the locker room after the game. Here’s the sign in question.

The fan reported theft to the police at the stadium and claimed he spent $500 on the banner with hopes of hanging it in his man room.
Cam gave his comments on the sign by saying the following:
“There’s a Green Bay banner in Bank of America Stadium. That don’t match. … I feel it’s my due diligence to protect this house. We played in Green Bay last year and I didn’t see no ‘Panther Country’ signs in their stadium. You’re not going to sell a Whopper at McDonald’s.”
Who do you side with?
