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.

DG is a giant douche. Steve Reed is by far the best.

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

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 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.

Gantt seems like the kinda guy that if got into a fight, he would slap the guy instead of punching him.
