The Carolina Panthers announced Wednesday that they will not be giving their fans the gold they were promised.
“We are sorry to disappoint our fans, but we will not be gifting them any gold,” the team said in a statement.
This news comes as a major blow to Panthers fans who were eagerly anticipating receiving their gold.
“I’m heartbroken,” said one fan. “I was really looking forward to getting my gold from the Panthers. Now I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
Another fan said he was “outraged” by the team’s decision.
Despite the backlash, the Panthers say they stand by their decision.
“We believe this is the best course of action for our fans and our team,” the team said in a statement.
There are a few reasons why you might not be able to give gold to your friends within Big Fish Casino. One possibility is that you have not reached the required level to engage in this activity. Another reason may be that you have already given your friend all of the gold that they are able to hold. Lastly, it could be that your friend is currently not logged into the game.
The Carolina Panthers have announced that they will not be gifting any of the team’s remaining gold to fans. This announcement comes in the wake of the team’s loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.
Some fans are reacting to the news with disappointment, while others are praising the team for making a savvy business decision. “
It makes perfect sense that the Panthers wouldn’t give away their remaining gold,” says one fan. “They’re a business, and they need to protect their assets.”
Others are worried that this decision will further alienate fans who are already disappointed about the team’s lackluster performance in the Super Bowl. “This just feels like another slap in the face,” says one fan. “I’m not sure I want to support this team anymore.”
The Carolina Panthers casino has announced that it will not allow any gifting of gold. The decision comes as the casino seeks to prevent money laundering and other criminal activities.
“We want to ensure that our players have a safe and enjoyable experience when they visit our casino,” said a spokesperson for the Panthers casino. “This means ensuring that our gaming floors are free from illegal activity, including the attempted use of gold as a currency.”
The spokesperson went on to say that the Panthers casino will be keeping a close eye on all transactions taking place on its gaming floors, and will take appropriate action against anyone caught trying to use gold as a form of currency.
The announcement has been welcomed by many in the Carolina Panthers community, who feel that it will help to create a safe and fair environment for all of its players.
To Panthers fans, it was a way of honoring their team in its first Super Bowl appearance: giving each other small pieces of gold jewelry. But to the NFL, it was an unapproved use of league trademarks.
The Panthers reached the Super Bowl after posting a 15-1 regular-season record. And some of their fans came up with a way to show their support for the team before the Feb. 7 game against the Broncos: gold jewelry in the shape of the team’s logo.
But NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said Wednesday that the league has denied requests from some fans in Charlotte to wear or give such jewelry at Sunday’s game.
“It is not approved,” McCarthy wrote in an email. “They can wear blue and silver.”
NFL rules prohibit using team trademarks on unapproved items, and the Panthers’ logo is no exception. Charlotte-based jeweler Justin Thorp created the logo-shaped pieces of gold, which he calls “Super Bowl L” necklaces, and began offering them for sale at his shop last week. He said he had sold about 200 necklaces at $250 apiece by Wednesday morning.
Some fans who had ordered them were disappointed when they learned they couldn’t wear them at the game.
Mike Kuczkowski, a 44-year-old sales representative from Fort Mill, South Carolina, said he bought two necklaces for himself and his girlfriend as a way to show how much he loves the Panthers. He called the NFL’s decision “a letdown.”
“It’s kind of a slap in the face to all Panthers fans,” Kuczkowski said.
