Because conservative, "red state" morons want to stay away from a "bad seed" instead of taking a chance once in a while. The Panthers should be all over this guy if Cleveland cuts him, offer him small dollars with a chance to make more down the line while convincing him that this is probably his last chance to prove that he belongs in the league.

 

Massachusetts

Washington 

California

 

Where are the red states? Oh, that's right. Sitting back waiting to b*tch about something one of those 3 states did. 

Want to know why we have a "conservative" approach to players with a troubled past? *Hint* it doesn't have anything to do with politics.

How about that's what I said about you in the original post that you replied to?

 

I'm sure :unsure:

 

 

I already know you probably feel that way so what's the point of you telling me what I already knew about you?

 

I ran this sentence through Google translate.  It came back with this:

 

 

WTF?

Again, why are you telling me something that I just said myself?

 

I. Just. Said. The Panthers and Hornets, as organizations, behave more like their fan bases think, than Jerry Jones, who doesn't mind rolling the dice on a knucklehead. Of course Richardson would want to stay away, just like you would. 

 

So congratulations on your temporary testosterone increase, gained from thinking you made a good point when all you did show me that you think exactly like I told you that you do. Too bad I just took it away from you.

 

 silly, you are saying the organization behave like the fan base and I'm am saying the fan base knows how the organization operates.

Not really.

 

What kind of "troubled past" did Rae Carruth have before the one that sent him to prison? That's the more important question.

 

The reason that question matters is no player has to have a "troubled past" to end up shaming your organization that one time they decide to do something stupid or criminal, just like those who shoot up a school or a post office don't have to have ever done anything before that would lead you to believe they would now.

 

That's a fact. What good is a "background" check if the guy buying the gun has never killed anyone and has just now decided that he wants to? 

 

But you could have someone who got out of prison who wants a gun for protection because he knows he's a wanted man, but he can't get one for a good reason while the disgruntled student who wants to shoot up his school is given one because his record checks out.

 

In other words, plenty of other NFL players who aren't always in the news will likely do a lot more violent things and shame the league before Josh Gordon does, so if he could be had for virtually nothing when he can be, I would do it in a heartbeat.

 

I would. Whether "I would" has zero to do with whether Richardson ever will. 

 

This board isn't the Panthers' front office.

I am not saying that the organization does what the fan base wants it to do.

 

I'm saying you all are conservative-minded. The fans and the organization, so you think alike.

Haha, Don't forget that we also need to lock him down with a massive long term deal. You don't let him get away.

 

I should go peruse the threads where people were arguing we needed to trade high picks to get him ASAP because he was worth the risk (just for laughs).

So, in a nutshell (which is appropriate here) we should go after guys like Josh Gordon who have a long history of stupidity and bad behavior because you never know when a guy like Jason Avant who's never done anything wrong is suddenly gonna turn bad on you.

 

Oh yeah...That makes sense :unsure:

 

(be a great philosophy to try out when hiring a babysitter as well)

you must be one of the dumb posters the thread in the Hornets forum complains about.
