These are the hottest Carolina Topcats or Carolina Panthers cheerleaders in the 2013 NFL season. You can see all these hot Carolina Panthers or TopCats cheerleaders in the accompanying slideshow, and on the sidelines at Carolina Panther NFL games.
The Carolina Panthers joined the NFL as an expansion team during the 1995 season. That same year, the Panthers formed their cheerleaders, and named them the TopCats. So the Carolina Panthers cheerleaders, named the TopCats, have been entertaining the fans since the Panthers joined the NFL.
During the 2003 season, the Carolina Panthers made it all the way to Super Bowl XXXVIII, where they barely lost, 32-29, to the New England Patriots. The Super Bowl appearance was great for the TopCats, as it brought the Carolina Panthers cheerleaders plenty of publicity.
It does not look like the Carolina Panthers will make the Super Bowl this season, which is too bad because it is being played in the New York City area. Whichever teams make it to the Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, just outside of Manhattan, their cheerleaders are sure to get a ton of publicity.
I've put a hockey Panthers photo, and two rugby Panthers photos into the slideshow.
Famous women who were Carolina Panthers or TopCats cheerleaders in the NFL
- Kimberly Coon
Former Carolina Panthers TopCats cheerleader Kimberly Coon was a contestant on "The Bachelor" in season 15. Kimberly only lasted three episodes on the show, but she made a splash when she departed by cursing out Brad Womack as she left.
- Renee Thomas and Angela Ellen Keathley
Topcats cheerleaders Renee Thomas and Angela Ellen Keathley became famous for all the wrong reasons. The two Carolina Panthers cheerleaders were on the TopCats squad in November of 2005, when they were arrested for having sex with each other in a bathroom stall at Banana Joe's, a Tampa, Florida nightclub.
Renee Thomas hit another patron in the face, after the patron got into an argument with the two TopCats cheerleaders because she was tired of waiting to use the bathroom. When Thomas was arrested, she falsely identified herself as another Carolina Panthers cheerleader, who was not involved in the incident.
Angela Ellen Keathley was so drunk at the scene that she could barely stand up and she had to be helped out of the nightclub. Both women were charged with a variety of offences, and they were both eventually bailed out of jail by other members of the TopCats.
Both Keathley and Thomas were quickly dismissed from the Carolina Panthers cheerleaders squad.
