  1. Guilty until proven innocent. As a long time criminal defense attorney, I hate that this is often the case.
  2. I wasn’t at the Cota INT game. I was 17 and at my girlfriend’s house for lunch after church. Her dad and I were watching the game and went nuts when Cora intercepted that pass. I would have loved to have been at the stadium for that. I was at the stadium for the first game of the Cardiac Cats. The crowd was pretty intense at the end of that one as well. Really great memories, all of these things.
  3. This thread has turned from completely improbable happenings that won a game for your favorite team to cool moments in sports history, regardless of fandom. There are many great moments over the last half century, but being a fan of the actual team/competitor in an improbable play like the Minneapolis Miracle adds so much more. For me, I witnessed X—Clown from one of the top rows in the upper level at the Edward Jones Dome. Awesome to witness. On the other end of the spectrum, I witnessed Vinatieri’s SB XXXVIII winning kick from the corner end zone section at Reliant Stadium. These two were the only two I witnessed live in-person. Taking it way back in Panthers history, Chad Cota’s interception against the Steelers to clinch the NFC West in 1996 is my first “improbable” Panthers outcome at the end of a game. As far as Bama goes, this past National Championship game was pretty improbable. I also suffered through the Kick Six during the 2013 season. As weird as it may sound, I’m also a Cleveland Indians fan (married a girl from the Akron, OH, area). Game 7 of the 2016 World Series was a complete swing in both directions from being down by 5+ runs early to tying it up in the 8th to losing in extra innings. I also suffered through Edgar Renteria’s two outs in the bottom of the 10th RBI single to win Game 7 of the 1997 World Series against the Tribe. Great thread. Fun to think about all those times.
  4. I think the problem with the safeties the Panthers have is that they go for big hits as opposed to securing the tackle. How many times has Coleman or Adams overrun a receiver looking for the big hit when simply breaking down and tackling would have gotten the job done? It happens all the time. Shaq does it as well. I was rewatching the most recent Saints-Panthers game the other day. You can't convince me that Kamara scores the first touchdown if Shaq actually wraps up as opposed to trying to blow Kamara up. With the amount of missed tackles by the defense this year, the Panthers don't need "big hitters." They need guys in the back end who can tackle.
  5. The Last Jedi *Spoilers*

    When looking forward to Episode IX, how is no one mentioning the boy at the end of Episode VIII using the Force to pull the broom up to him?
  6. Know how you know the Super Bowl coverage starts too early? CBS runs a five minute segment on the Bills fictitiously winning the four straight Super Bowls they lost 20+ years ago.
  7. He's talking about the Seahawks internal clock, I'd imagine. If they had an 0730 EST wake-up, it would be equivalent to an 0430 PST wake-up.
  8. Haven't seen Stewart in a while? Have I just missed him, or is he injured?
  9. The last few games (except the Flacons game) have seemed like college rivalry games for the Panthers. What I mean by that is this: the opposing team is simply playing off of emotion and plays very well initially. However, as we have seen, that emotion is not enough to overcome a superior team. The Panthers have done a fantastic job waiting out that emotion and, more times than not, stripping the emotion away through a big play or two.
  10. Panthers grooming future GM?

    I don't know if Brandon would do that, seeing that he is a local boy. I went to high school with him in Stanly County. he has stayed with the Panthers this long why not wait it out for the GM job if that is what is next for him? Although he may not have exclusive scouting experience, I have no doubt he has learned the ropes in that regard. He was a sports junkie growing up. He has been with the Panthers for years and worked his way up through the ranks. Plus, he has learned some ways not to do things from Hurney and ways to do things from Gettleman. I would be fine with Brandon taking over after Gettleman and would be extremely happy for a former classmate.
  11. NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    I had no idea of what Florio wrote. I just deal with all these burdens of proof on a day-to-day basis in my job. Thought the ones making a big deal of the word "probable" we're just missing the point.
  12. NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    It is actually quite easy to see if you read the word in context of how it is used in the report. Investigations, whether they are criminal in nature or internal to an organization, require a burden of proof to either substantiate or unsubstantiate the claims. By using that language in the report, the investigator was merely saying, "The burden has been met." But you all can keep your panties in a was if you'd like.
  13. NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    Everyone upset about the word "probable" should read the word in context. The word describes the burden of proof used during the investigation, which sounds to be proof by a preponderance of the evidence. That is a legal standard much lower than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and it essentially means "the greater probability of the evidence," i.e. more probable than not.
  14. The Azores

    Flown through and spent the night several times. Windy as all heck from what I remember. Cool feel to the area though.
