    "we need ID at the polls" is in the same category as "we need to drug test food stamp recipients" it's a tried and true rabble-rousing tactic that makes people prick their ears up. it targets the "common sense" (in mile-high scare quotes) part of their brains that causes them to go "yeah, why the hell would you be opposed to that? gravy train's over, freeloaders!". obviously the only people who are opposed to it are naive liberals, lazy idiots, and people who want to cheat the system. it plays to preconceived notions and, conceptually, it scratches an itch in a way that makes it really, really hard to talk people out of it no matter how many facts you present them with. it's also easy to muddy the waters by lumping all fraud in with in-person voter impersonation, which is only a tiny slice of the problem. it's also the only type of fraud that ID at the polls is intended to help solve. it's easy to go find some article somewhere where somebody lied on an absentee ballot or a registration form or made a clerical error and thumb your nose at the opposition. it's a classic straw man tactic, and it works because people generally aren't very precise when discussing the issue.

    we also attempted the 27th most passes in the league with the most rushing attempts get cam slinging the ball around 40 times every week and let's check those numbers then
  5. Great piece on Mario Addison

  6. Cool. J-No showed up for Tolbert's charity event

    cpantherking was probably in the room when it was all going down so i trust him when he says norman was let go at the order or command of many of the players.

    he was serving talib an ass whupping before he got injured. among other much-bitched-about factors that was one of the differences in the game i think.

    also there are people making fun of a former panther in the thread about byron bell being injured so if you could rush over there and deliver some of your insider info from your days inside the panthers org to set them straight that'd be awesome

    all kinds of tampering, fugery in the registration system, mail-in ballot fraud, and shady garbage from poll workers happens all the time. who denies that? and making someone flash an ID at the polls won't do a damn thing to stop that. does the article get specific about how these ballots were cast? how many of them were actually situations where someone showed up at a polling station, said they were a dead guy, and then voted as them? i ask that because mail-in ballot fraud is way more common and it seems like people care way less about that. it's interesting that the one state that's non-compliant with help america vote and doesn't participate in a system like this: has that kind of problem though. in-person voter ID is already conceptually useless because the rolls get nuked by overlapping systems that are tied into the DMV and other systems that store a ton of information about registered voters. if anything they're too harsh; they flag millions of voters as possibly having voted twice every year. even if a fraction of these were valid there'd be tens of thousands of prosecutions per year at the bare minimum.

    how does a fanbase (or section of it) having a particular opinion about the front office actually affect the team other than if it gets to the extent that they start boycotting games or refusing to buy merchandise? does it really matter if you support josh norman vocally on the internet? does it matter if panthers fans in general are behind him? i think there might be a few more factors at play that are important than that. you and a few others on this site take what amounts to pretty basic fan banter and just another aspect of human emotions way too damn seriously. i would actually put your religious fervor for discrediting dave gettleman on the same level as people who blindly defend everything he does, actually. you and a couple others in your weird little cult who act like you're too good for a 15-1 football team and that a guy who got fired three years ago and wasn't hired by any other team in the league could have done a better job. i look at you and see someone who values sentimentality over actual on the field performance. and that's bizarre to me. to me everything about you down to your brad hoover avatar indicates obsession with things and times that are gone.

    after giving it a lot of thought, i believe the man who best encapsulates my world view is the one that got up on stage at the republican national convention and had a conversation with an empty chair
