  1. Might be Jobless

    Money equals power. Even if you aren't a millionaire or billionaire, being free of debt is a YUGE factor! It enables individuals the ability to raise their standards when it comes to what is tolerable and not tolerable employer behavior/practices. Those employees living paycheck to paycheck tend to keep their heads down and their mouths shut. The ideal employee owes their soul to the company store...
  2. A Funchess Reminder

    Panthers have more talent at wide receiver than they've ever had before. It is going to be tough to part ways with a few of these guys.
  3. Gettleman eating

    Who's that hogmolly with his back to the camera? Looks like he would make a good buffet stuffer. Seriously, love DG and want him to be around for a long time to come, but he needs to take better care of himself. Come on Coach Rivera, get Dave to drop a few pounds and hit the gym two or three days a week.
  4. This^^^. Josh did what he thought was best for his future, the Panthers did what they thought was best for their future. They both made the right decisions for the right reasons. No hard feelings are necessary, best of luck to both parties involved.
  5. Might be Jobless

    Yep, pick your battles wisely and have a Plan B sorted out beforehand. I respect those with principles willing to put it on the line (in a professional manner of course). I've done it on several occasions during my military career with good results, but there was often a price to be paid as well (not that it wasn't worth it to me anyway). You'll sleep better at night knowing you've done the right thing. You'll sleep even better with some savings in the bank and a viable exit strategy if things head South.
  6. Update on the toddler body count

    Firearms in the home are many times more likely to be used on family members or friends than an intruder. Apparently, even a bunch of toddlers are smart enough to figure that out. The NRA and firearm aficionados? Not so much.
  7. When Hillary talks tough

    Hillary is a chicken hawk neocon. She is to the right of Obama when it comes to military interventionism. In fact, her lust for military conflict is philosophically closer to GWB than to Obama. Remember GWB's eight years? How did that work out for our troops... our nation? If you remember how bad it was... apparently you are among the minority of democratic voters who do.
  8. Trump vs. Hillary

    Hillary is a republican in all but name, loves wars, big banks, big oil, big pharma, privatized jails for profit, and trade agreements that ship American jobs overseas. Her social agenda is different, but just like the GOP the social agenda is merely window dressing to get the rubes to vote for her corporate agenda. Low information American voters fooled yet again by bumper sticker politics. Two New York elitists, representing elitists interests, to choose from for president. 1%/corporate multi-nationals win again.
  9. Sorry. Gettlemens Draft This Year Blows

    This^^^. The Panthers have never been so deep on talent, ever. They also have an incredible amount of cap space for such a talented team. That cap space is still available to address the few areas of concern remaining.
  10. Bradberry given JNo's number

    No need to panic... after exhaustive research into the issue... turns out the number 24 is an actual number, wasn't retired by the Panthers and was available for immediate re-use. Furthermore, double blind testing at our labs indicates the number 24 does not possess magical powers to improve or hinder any DB's game performance, despite beliefs to the contrary by some of the fanatics here. Bottom Line: There is no need to panic, that is all.
  11. In case you lost count....

    Gettleman must have finally gotten tired looking in bargain bins for the Panthers defensive backfield, especially late in the season. Makes sense, now that this team has formidable talent in most other areas.
  12. On second thought...we should have paid Norman

    Gettleman wanted Josh on the team next year, hence the tag. He hoped to have Josh on the team long term, hence the contract negotiations. What Gettleman didn't want is to mortgage the Panthers future for one player. Other key players contracts are coming up for renewal in the next couple of years and there is only so much money to go around. Gettleman, after months of trying to come to an agreement with Josh and his agent, determined the Panthers dollars would be better spent elsewhere. Is Gettleman right? That remains to be determined, but Dave's track record as GM suggests the smart money is in his corner.
  13. Will HB2 ever get repealed?

    Time marches on... NC will eventually move past this fixation with genital purity. Only question is, will it (once again) be the courts forcing change or will it be the state legislature coming to their senses? My money is on the courts.

    Finally, something enjoyable that improves your long term health prospects... (Reuters Health) - - Men who ejaculate often may have a lower risk of prostatecancer than their peers who don’t do it as frequently, a U.S. study suggests. Researchers followed about 32,000 men starting in 1992 when they were in their 20s and continuing through 2010. During this period, almost 4,000 of the men were diagnosed with prostate cancer. Men who ejaculated at least 21 times a month in their 20s were 19 percent less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than men who ejaculated no more than seven times a month, the study found. Men who ejaculated more often in their 40s were 22 percent less likely to get a prostate cancer diagnosis. “Ejaculation frequency is, to some extent, a measure of overall health status in that men at the very low end of ejaculation – 0 to 3 times per month – were more likely to have other (medical problems) and die prematurely from causes other thanprostate cancer,” said lead study author Jennifer Rider, who did the analysis while working at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston. “While our findings should be confirmed in studies that evaluate the potential biological mechanisms underlying the observed associations, the results of our study suggest that ejaculation and safe sexual activity throughout adulthood could be a beneficial strategy for reducing the risk of prostate cancer,” Rider, now at Boston University, added by email.
