I think I'll buy out the Panther shop. Ordering some jerseys and hats right now


quit being the "other side" of the argument just for the sake of it DP... there is no other side in this argument. We're all stuck floating up poo's creek with no motor or paddles on the U.S.S. Panther. And I'm sure you have plenty of money to spend in the Panthers store with all that money you have as a college student... I know, I am one.

Well we cut every player we could conceivably come up with an excuse to cut, added absolutely nobody in FA, jacked up ticked prices and trotted this garbage team out on the field.... wait, you guys have a problem shelling out hundreds of dollars to come see them?

Can't take it out of me either, but support and pride are two different things. If someone calls you a bitch, they hurt your pride, and you most likely want to retaliate. That's pride. If someone calls you a bitch and they've got 10 fully functional friends with them but you have 10 friends missing arms and legs and are mentally retarded... They have support. You don't. Every other team has the 10 functional friends... We are the armless, legless retards because our owner made it that way.

It doesn't matter how loud you cheer or how much gear you wear this year, it isn't gonna make the team better or play better. What it will do is put JR even further above the red line than he was before. So, that's up to you. My Panther Pride is kicked, shitted on, and spat on every week with the way he constructed this team and I'm not going to show my support by putting more money in his pocket.

Also, the statement he is making by not spending money can't be boosting morale in the locker room b/c the players have to see that as him 'drawing the line' for labor negotiations. We have how many stars playing on one-year deals right now? What if they get injured? And then you got TD trying to get his busted up ass back out there from 2 ACL injuries in one-year b/c he's scared he won't get paid if he doesn't??? THIS poo IT RIDICULOUS MAN. JR is telling you he doesn't care about me, you, or anyone else - he cares about his money, point blank.

So, at this point, it's not about supporting the team, you're supporting him.

Cheer all you want... That is when we actually have something to cheer about... But, you don't have to put more money in his pocket.

+1

I almost always tend to side with the Front Office and management.... Not this time, not this season. The difference is every other season that we sucked, I felt like the organization tried to put the best team on the field within in reason. They made tough choices, some we may have disagreed with, but they were always trying to win.

But this year is different. I wouldn't care if we went 0-16 if the front office tried to put a good product on the field, but this year for the first time I feel they didn't.

They subtracted, subtracted, subtracted, and subtracted from the team never replacing them with any proven players. Just young, cheap, unproven rookies and young players. the type that would be battling for backup positions on other teams.

Then everyone in the world knew we needed a #2 WR. Past years, we attempted to address, not this year. We'll just relay on DJ who has never proved himself worthy and newly drafted WR that needs time to develop in the NFL. If you contacted TJ, tried to trade for VJ or someone else and it didn't happen... fine. At-least you tried. But to sit on our ass when there was available options to prove a point to the players Union?? Now it's all about you and not the fans. That's what unacceptable.

I will continue to watch the team because I am a fan, but does not mean I have to be happy or support the ownership. My G/F was giving me a present that was tickets to a game later this year... I told her to cancel that. I'll watch the game at a bar.

We're horrible this year, but we didn't have to be!!!!!

all of you sob's that say you won't support our team when it's down.......can kiss my ass. I will support this team at all times. Matter of fact I just ordered a #2 jersey for my son to wear today. It's the start of a new era in Carolina.........JC in and JF out. Get on the wagon now because I don't want to hear anything from you SOB's when it starts too turn. You can bitch all you want but, lack of support is down right wrong.

The difference is I feel the Lions were trying to become a winner. They didn't give up... Making trades, signing players, admitting their mistakes and redrafting the same position, personnel shake ups.... They wanted to win and was trying to get there. To be that's fine. I can support the FO when they are trying. I am just of belief that our FO does not have that same dedication to putting the best product out their on the field they have in pass years.

It's not if the FO makes Good/Bad decisions... It's if they're committed to winning first. I feel the lions were... and this year or FO aren;t.

JR is looking at this season as write off... wrong or right. Doesn't matter to me, we will come back stronger with lots of money and a new coach. Anybody who really thought the Panthers were going to be competitive this year were just fooling themselves.

Now I'm gonna get higher.....good day.
