Who's the best beat writer?

12 posts in this topic

Of the guys who write about the Panthers regularly, who do you think is the best and why?

Darin Gantt used to be pretty good. And he was regarded as the best around here for a long time. Then he defended Delhomme and Fox too long, so everyone turned on him.

But now he is smug and he acts like a condescending tool. I can appreciate a smart ass, but not when its not genuine.

Steve Reed

He really covers the whole team more in depth than the other guys.

DG has gone downhill fast since joining allegiances with the Disturber.

Gantt's a little bitch. Reed I think is the best, but I'd still take Mr.Scott, tattorhino, and anyone else here who closely watches the team and gives us their objective views over any of our beat writers.

I still think Gantt's the best out there, followed very closely by Reed.
This.

Thread now locked since answer has been given.

I say Reed. Hell Sorenson has just as much insight as Ngatt

A new beat writer is starting soon for the Observer. DG will still be writing as well.

I have to go with Gantt, his frequency and use of twitter puts him just ahead of Reed.

All of them are so closely monitored by the Panthers we're unlikely to get much more than what we get now.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
