Well he was born in Boston, and you can hear that, and then he's go the NYC thing added in there somewhere. Southerners my sound totally bizarre to him. I honestly didn't know what word he was saying the first time he said Quarterback. He mangled that word worse than anything I've ever heard in my life.
"Sure hope the cap goes up as high next season as he can jump, or at least as high as my nipple shorts. It's interesting how my voice sounds normal in my head, but when I speak I sound like a dying seal from the Bronks."
Have you seen his wife? I hope she comes to the game. I hope her sister comes to the game, all her friends come to the game. One of my favorite games of the year, guys.” This is typical guy talk that is done in private, and when women are not within earshot. Women determine what is socially and publicly acceptable behavior in our society. In my opinion most women would find Hardy's comments to be offensive and (get ready for their favorite buzz word) inappropriate. Guys like Hardy are a nightmare for football teams concerned with pleasing the pc police, and keeping the media's negativity at bay. Once the media catches on that Hardy's comments are causing a stir they will circle him like sharks circle blood in the water. The media will poke and prod Hardy to get him to elaborate on his offensive comments, and try to bait him into making more offensive comments. Why? Money of course. They need to stir the pot as much as possible to generate interest and ad revenue. $$$$. The reporters don't care in the slightest that Hardy is willing to publicly comment that a woman is hot. But they are ready and willing to pretend to be offended if that stirs up public interest. The pc social justice warriors are completely committed to helping the media turn a mole hill into a mountain for about one to two weeks, and then on to the next "offensive" story. If a woman does nothing with her life but look hot, and then someone comments that she's hot and he's looking forward to seeing her, then that's offensive in our bizarre society. The media knows exactly how to take this one little scrap of meat and make a big pot of soup out of it. Sure it's mostly just water, but the public is full of mostly ignorant sheep who are easy to manipulate. Thank goodness Hardy is off this team. I truly hope we never have another player on our team who doesn't understand how to deal with the media. Hardy's answers to the media should be "yes", "no", "maybe", and "I'm looking forward to the game." He isn't intelligent enough to give any other kind of answer. He thinks he's being entertaining, and creating a name for himself. That's true. And when the media is done with him, and he retires, no one will hire him. He won't be working at ESPN, or anywhere in the public eye for that matter. He's got to shut his trap now.
Do you read Panther related sports articles? True/False: What is the narrative when we are losing? Multiple choice question: A.) Cam is a bad QB and he is the sole reason they are losing. B.) The Panthers have not given Cam the weapons he needs to succeed. I can't make it any easier for you to understand how you're wrong. If you disagree at this point then I'm done.
CJ himself was shocked by the contract Hurney offered. CJ had one foot out the door so to speak and wanted to sign with Atlanta. The Falcons didn't think we'd make the kind of offer we made, and it did hurt their pass rushing situation, but now we have to pay.
From here on out I would rather we stick with young cheap RBs with fresh legs. Even if CAP does a great job during his rookie contract, if he wants a big contract I'd rather let him walk. Just keep reloading with young RBs who can be obtained later in the draft.
It's interesting to see how different players respond to getting older. Peppers is doing just fine, but CJ's body is falling apart and he just doesn't have it anymore. I can't imagine CJ coming back for next season unless he plays great after his return.
That 49ers game was as angry as I've ever been watching a Panthers game. I was livid and screaming at the tv more than RR was screaming at the refs, and that's saying something. I went berserk, and I've never been that angry over a football game before or since. I had go walk around the house to cool off during commercials. I wanted to reach into the tv set and strangle the refs. I definitely don't ever want to see another game like that. The AZ playoff loss was the saddest game, and the 49er playoff loss was angriest game. No more of those types of games ever again.
I know of sports writers who actually hate the Panthers. They use the word hate in their videos when referring to the Panthers. But yes in general hate is not the right word. Any sports writer has the choice of saying or writing positive, negative, or neutral things about the Panthers. We've been receiving an unusual amount of negative press, and I can't figure it out. It's their choice to go negative, positive, or whatever. The Panthers are way into the negative column in general when in comes to the media, and that is not the case with other teams that are not dominant, and have never been. I want more positive articles and videos about the Panthers. I've had my fill of sports writers choosing to go negative with our team year after year. There are very few teams in the modern NFL that have been dominant over the long run. It's mostly a mixed bag with up and down results from season to season for most teams. You can go negative about any team pretty easily, yet the Panthers are a major target for negativity. Or we're just outright ignored to the point where people outside of NC think we're the equivalence of the Jaguars. So you're answer is that we need to become a dominant team and stretch that out over the next decade? And then the media will become more positive toward our team? Or just more wins in general over the long run and the media will change? We'll we all know that if we go 16-0 this season we're going to get trashed in the media worse than ever before. It'll be a nightmare media wise. That's a damn given. 100% certain of that.
The Panther hatred in the media is something that I have been trying to figure out. Like the media doesn't hate the Jaguars. They don't hate other small market southern teams. When the Jags were good they were picked in the media many times to beat the Colts with Payton Manning in his prime. The media gushed over the Jags. Even now when we played the Jags, who have not had a good team since since George W Bush was in office, were picked by many experts to beat the Panthers. It's not a small market southern team issue. A member of NFL.com's staff outright called our entire franchise "lousy" right before the start of this season, and said we would have a "lousy season". What did he say about the Jags in the same episode? He said they had a really good WR, and that they were getting better. I want to point out how the media deals with the Panthers when we're winning. They pump up Cam Newton, and take as big of a dump as they possibly can on our franchise and team. Love Cam, but can't stand the Panthers. Cam should be MVP, but the Panthers team is garbage. fug the 4-0 Panthers, oh but we love Cam. The Panthers are the worst 4-0 team in the NFL, but Cam is wonderful. That's when we're winning. fug me. Now when we're losing the gloves come off. Now we're expected to lose every game no matter the opponent, and our losses are Panther related, not Cam related. We lose, the Panthers are the losers, we win, Cam is the winner, but the Panthers are still hot garbage. And that's if they even talk about our team at all. Now some people are pointing out that a few sports writers are bucking the trend and saying nice things about our team. Great. Why? One way to draw attention to your sports articles is simply by saying something different from the rest of the crowd. So out of self interest these few sports writers are going the unique route with their Panther articles. The trend is to trash our team, and disrespect all of our players and coaches except Cam Newton. Why? I've been thinking about it and I can't figure it out. What did the Panthers do that was so wrong?
