  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Will HB2 ever get repealed?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.

    You know things are getting bad 'round here when "teh Czar" feels oppressed.
  9. Bruce Springsteen cancel Greensboro Show over HB2

    Looks like North Carolina will have to say goodbye to hosting any of the NCAA basketball playoffs thanks to HB2. Citing the need to maintain a “safe, healthy” atmosphere for both the players and the public, the NCAA doubled down on its anti-discrimination stance on Wednesday, approving a new decree mandating that all sites that hope to host NCAA events “demonstrate how they will provide an environment … free of discrimination.” “The higher education community is a diverse mix of people from different racial, ethnic, religious and sexual orientation backgrounds,” chair of the NCAA Board of Governors Kirk Schulz stated. “So it is important that we assure that community— including our student-athletes and fans — will always enjoy the experience of competing and watching at NCAA championships without concerns of discrimination.” The decision comes in the aftermath of the highly controversial Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act (HB2), which, among other discriminatory measures, forces transgender people to use the bathroom that accords with the “biological sex” on their birth certificate, not the restroom that matches the gender with which they identify. The law directly affects public schools, thus ensnarling the NCAA in the debate. Read more here:

  11. JaWalrus Russell's open letter to Jerry Jones

    The Canadian Football League is custom made for QBs looking for an opportunity to resurrect careers. It has wider fields and deeper end zones. JM wouldn't be the first to take this path if he is serious about a comeback.
  12. Why Democrats Are Perpetual LOSERS?

    TYT reporter, Jordan Chariton, interviewed DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz and former congressman Barney Frank. He asked them about the corrupting influence of money on Democratic candidates.
  13. Star's 5th year option picked up

    "The fault, dear Panthers Fans, is not in Star Lotulelei,but in ourselves."

    Takes some serious ignorance of history orcognitive dissonance to think this is a clever meme.
  15. So, almost a month later...

    Sometimes all that isrequired is for people to reflect on issues using someempathy. From my perspective, it is hard to believe transgenders haven't been using their bathroom of choice ever since there have been public bathrooms. To do otherwise would draw obvious attention to them. Here is the type of reaction they would face without the protection of the law... South Carolina sheriff says he would ‘whip’ trans woman in restroom Video of Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright speaking at the Greenville-Spartanburg Republican Women’s meeting shows the county’s top law enforcement officerthreatening bodily harm to any transgender women who uses the ladies’ restroomin his presence. “Because if you are a guy and you go into bathroom with my wife, I’m gonna make the news — I know there’s three cameras rolling — I’m gonna whip your tail if you go in there with my wife while she’s trying to use the bathroom, or my granddaughter. That is bologna,” Wright says. “So, I don’t really understand why there’s an issue in any legislation, or state senators or whatever gotta make that stuff. I mean, the men’s room is for the men. The girl’s room is for the girls. We were taught the symbol when we were little and we couldn’t read. Wearing a dress is supposed to be a chick. Supposed to anyway. Unless you’re raising money for something. Listen, I’ve dressed up like a girl to raise money for under-privileged kids. But I was the only one who didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t shave. I tried to look like a man dressed up like a chick.”
