  1. Getting Benji Back

    2016 - We finally have back to back winning seasons!
  2. Tom Brady: The Winner

    Black and white is part of it, no question.  I think small market big market is part of it as well.  Big market = support is popular opinion, small market = support is minority opinion. i.e. If the media supports Brady a lot of people agree, if the media supports Cam a lot less people agree.  It's all about ratings and clicks.  You need an agreeable sentiment to maintain a majority audience.
  3. This is crazy

    Turner on the right is sliding the exact same way.
  4. Dameshek defends Cam

    The media void for clickers looking for dissenting opinion from the norm was too big for someone not to support Cam.  
  5. I was in a huge funk Monday as I drove out of San Jose en route to Sacramento for a red eye home.  Flight didn't leave until 11pm pacific time and absolutely nothing I wanted to do except be home.  I stopped by a BJ's brewpub just outside the Sacramento airport to have some suds and kill time.  Bartender there was extra salty as well since he lost a 5 game parlay that would pay out 10 to 1 with a Carolina win.  He also lost a prop bet on the field goal doink.  The barflies were all talking about how terrible the officiating was and how uncarolinalike Carolina looked.  I started to feel better as the beers flowed and the hospitality I found myself surrounded by became quite warm conversations.  An older lady who was sitting at a high top behind me for awhile and overhearing the conversation stopped by on her way out and gave me a hug and a kiss on the cheek and wished us better luck when we return to the big game, and suddenly I was over it.  The pride for my team started to take back real estate stolen by bitter disappointment.  I'm glad I went finally.
  6. Want To See The Super Bowl 50 Crowd Firsthand?

    Here I am before becoming sad. :(
  7. Can't recall where I heard/read it but it was one of the best takes I can recall.  Against New England, Denver was able to play on their toes, driving on the play.  Carolina forces you to play on your heels, it's a lot easier to get trucked when you're playing on your heels.
  8. Norman's coverage is irrelevant when Peyton is peeling KK's teabag off his chinstrap every other down.
  9. Cam Newton disappointed me

    I would say the players have been instructed by their handlers to interact as little as possible when in public.  It's a media circus there and everyone has a phone, you say/do/react to a single thing wrong and suddenly you have a huge distraction sweeping the world media.  Why go through the annoyance of measuring every single word and action you take in public to make sure something isn't made from nothing, keep your head down, get your food and take care of business.  I don't think you saw Cam's nature, I think you saw Cam the business man.
  10. Voth compiles the best Media day quotes

    I've said all year that I think our coaching staff should share or maybe even have the lion's share of credit for the production of this roster.  Gettleman has brought the right bodies in and that can't be denied, however, the constant production we've gotten from retreads cannot be explained by anything other than we're coaching them up better than they were previously.  If a team can build players then they don't have to buy em, we've seen that for several straight years here.
  11. Super Bowl Roll Call

    Thunder rolled, lightning cracked, the sky was dark and hopeless.  Monday morning, I heard a voice and saw a divide in the sky.  An unrecognizable feeling came over me just as my phone rang.  It was THE call, hopeless uncertainty instantly turned to gleeful joy as I was offered a ticket in section 131 at face value!  Mere hours later, all travel was booked, yesterday tickets promised became tickets in hand, Friday I leave for a bucket list trip!
  12. Josh Norman takes it to Deion Sanders

    I thought Josh was sizzlin'!  Deion trying to play nice in front of the world and Josh went full #truth on him, then glared from the corner of his eye like "whatcha gotta say now", loved Josh's glare, nods, the pointed mouth as Deion retorted, it's as if his words tasted like the BS they were to Josh.  He gave him a break with the bro hug at the end that wasn't deserved.  It's prime time to stop acting like your anything other than a media figurehead now Deion! My favorite Josh quote was regarding trash talking though! “No I don’t consider myself a trash talker. I consider myself a motivator.”
  13. Broncos enjoying the underdog role

    Yes because Green Bay, New England, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh or anyone else you want to toss out there is Carolina.  As so many other fanbases have learned this year, there is a very very rude awakening coming.  
  14. Ryan Clark has a different POV on why Cam is hated.

    Ryan makes a good point, but it's just that, a point.  I'm certain he's correct in assessing that for some people it's cultural.  I think his error is in trying to box the Cam hate into one thing.  I feel confident in saying that for plenty of people (notice I didn't say white people), the color of Cam's skin is enough to set their opinion in a direction.  For others, the dancing, even if they understand the culture is enough to set their opinion in a negative direction.  Yet for even others, the college allegations, pay for play, laptops, what not set their opinion in a direction long before Cam became the discussion.  Different strokes for different folks.   However, those who choose to be enlightened see far more in Cam than has even become obvious yet.  He's kicking the barriers down, grinning, kissing kids, and winning a lot of football games in the process.  Now that Cam has the glaring spotlight pointed directly at him, he doesn't hesitate to discuss the elephant in the room.  That's using your platform to discuss something that needs attention, and it's the hallmark of a transcendent human being.  Cam has a message for everyone, particularly anyone who judges another human for any reason.   "Cam says he doesn't lose sleep over his critics because he checks himself short of judging others." I'm ok with my son and daughters hearing this message.
