  1. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    It's a beautiful set up the NFL has. If a team wins due to skewed officiating, they happily accept the W and call everyone else 'poor sports.' If you're not a fan of the losing team, you may notice the issue,  but it doesn't really affect your team, so you let it go. If you're a fan of the losing team, whatever you say will be shouted down as being a 'sore loser' and eventually you'll just let it go as 'part of the game.' Nothing in this world is immune from corruption. It's basically the same scam our government has pulled on us, but instead of political factions it's sports teams. 
  2. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    We have corruption in politics, finance, medicine, education...why is it so hard for some on this board to believe that there could be corruption in the biggest game of the most lucrative sport in the United States?   
  3. Cam and Ginn both tackled Patrick Peterson when he got the pick in the NFC Championship. Ginn running the length of the field and catching one of the fastest returners in the NFL from behind was just more memorable than Cam jumping on him. Cam has NEVER shied away from contact, so when he says there was a good reason for his not going for that ball, I will give him the benefit of the doubt. He's taken helmet to helmet hits, dragged up to eight defenders several yards for a first down and taken tons of vicious hits in his career. To question his heart or his will to win is just silly. 
  4. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    I believe we have a more complete team than any of those others you've listed, other than maybe the Packers. We're also in a better place financially/contractually. I do agree though that nothing is a given. I just like our odds better now vs. 2003. 
  5. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    2003. I am bummed/angry that we didn't win, but I'm confident that we'll at least be in the hunt for the Super Bowl for the next few years. Like OP said, it was do or die in 2003. Jake had reached his ceiling and we didn't have the pieces in place to stay competitive.  Cam is just starting to hit his stride. We are one of the youngest, most talented teams with a two time coach of the year and a GM that can literally make a delicious chicken salad out of chicken poo.
  6. Does anyone know if they're selling that black Panthers Starter jacket Cam was wearing yesterday, or if it's a custom job? I want one and can't find it anywhere!
  7. I look at it this way...I think a lot of these guys are scared. If the MVP can get away with ignoring them, who else might follow his lead? Especially with the crap these guys say about these athletes. They're trying to punish him, and Cam and the Panthers are going to ignore it and win. 
  8. "Show me a good loser... "

    I absolutely think it's an admirable and desired quality to be gracious in defeat. There's photographic and video evidence that Cam Newton was in fact gracious in defeat to his opponents, congratulating Peyton and other players on the field after the game. They were his peers that bested him on the field, he owed them that. He doesn't owe a thing to reporters who have maligned him for the majority of his career, and now want a sound bite from the MVP. The MVP is an award given by the press, and while they'd like everyone to believe that some obligation comes along with that award, it doesn't.  We've all watched enough post game interviews to know that there wasn't any new insight or information to be gained from that post game press conference. He was the losing QB, they're going to roast him either way, so why give them any material. Hell, your QB did the exact same thing when it happened to him. He didn't even congratulate the other team. I hate Peyton Manning(at least the teams he's played for), but I don't think it was immature of him. Immature is cursing someone out on social media or announcing that you intentionally tried to hurt another player. 
  9. "Show me a good loser... "

    Man, I'll bet every DB in the NFL would be jealous of this backpedal. 
  10. video of Cam responding to criticism

    Oh the irony of anyone on this or any message board calling an NFL player a 'punk.' It's astounding how little the average adult male understands the athleticism and toughness of even a practice squad player in the NFL. 
  11. If Cam Newton wasn't a Panther...

    If he was a Falcon, I would hate him. I would probably also call him a thug and wish disease and death on him as I have every other NFC South rival QB in my weaker moments. I like to think I take every opportunity to learn things about myself and correct my behavior when I notice something wrong with it. Being a fan of Cam has opened my eyes to a lot of hypocritical BS that I've participated in in the past. I've tried to do a better job of hating the jersey, not the guy wearing it, and reserving the label of 'thug' to people that actually hurt other people, rather than just their feelings.  
  12. My take on the Cam Newton fumble.

    The simplest answer usually IS the correct one. So I'm going to assume you say all of this dumb stuff simply because you are dumb. 
  13. Ealy made Super Bowl History

    He's due a big roster bonus in March, so we should know by then. 
  14. Ealy made Super Bowl History

    I like where your head is at, but he's not a FA until 2018, right?
  15. Ealy made Super Bowl History

    Time to find him a nice bookend in FA.
