I will just say this and leave alone. I dont like pulling the race card but there are people here that make racist jokes and later on say "oh Im just kidding...lighten up". Thats like telling a chick at a bar "let me lick on u" and saying "oh Im kidding" once she gets offended.

You actually take comments written in the Observer seriously? Ouch :nonod:

Over the years, I've seen various threats to leave the Panthers over one thing or another:

- "If they don't cut Jake Delhomme, I'm done with this team."

- "If they don't fire (Jeff Davidson/John Fox/Marty Hurney/Ron Meeks/Whomever), I'll never give this team another cent."

- "If they run one more draw play, I'm finished with these guys."

- "If they don't draft - or sign - Player X, it's proof this team doesn't care about winning."

In pretty much every case, stupid statements made by silly people who never followed through on them (even though in most cases, we wished they had).

We've had all that and more, but now the newspaper finds some nimrod who plans to print anti-Newton T-Shirts. And that's supposed to be a big deal or somehow prove rampant racism in the fanbase.

Yeah...right :rolleyes:

News flash: All the "racial undertones" are more likely in your head. There are some folks who just don't happen to think Newton is the best choice. And throwing charges of racism or personal bias against folks just because they happen to disagree with you about a draft pick is pretty weak (and, as one poster found out, can get you banned).

Bottom Line: Thinking that nobody can possibly doubt Cam Newton unless they're racist is really, really stupid :frown2:


What is silly & really really stupid is you taking me saying there are racial overtones regarding Cam(& there is) as if I am saying everyone who questions his talent is a racist! This whole back & forth is really stupid. Some of you are taking what I said waaaay out of context, but whatever. Not wasting my time on this anymore. Trust me, I am not a "regular" on this site. If I get banned for saying there were racial overtones on certain posts over the past month, than it is what it is. Who gives a damn. I would survive, trust me...

I just thought of something. We have never had an Asian QB. Open your mind, Hurney!!!

Pretty sure Timmy Chang is available.

What I find amusing is that, as often as not, the first mention of racism is when someone is being accused of it, despite the fact that the topic of race hasn't even entered the conversation prior to that time.

That tells me a lot :frown2:

Im ok with it. It'll more than likely take Dareus 2-3 years to develop. No 2nd rounder.... Little to trade. Sounds like we get another shot at Luck to me.

I don't actually believe this will happen of course. We will more than likely win just enough games to be out of contention to draft a Franchise QB....again. And probably at the cost of a few star players who got hurt playing their guts out to try and win games without a passing threat. Man, I used to be so optimistic about panther football. :(

Racism should be a joke. It's too ridiculous to be taken seriously. Only by taking it seriously and making a constant freaking hooplah about it do we empower racist morons, and continue to allow it to exist.

People who don't want a player drafted to their favorite football team because of color do exist im sure. But assuming that everyone that doesn't like that player is a racist; is actually quite racist.

Boy, that is a bold statement. There are a lot of people that would strongly disagree with that statement. Including myself.

I agree that people who don't like Cam Newton aren't inherently racist. But to claim racism is a joke is a joke in itself.

Point taken. I guess I should have said racism should be a joke. Racist people are a joke.

BPA pick (not QB) or trade down. Vet QB.Once we get the CBA it will be done quick.

Have you all thought and wondered why Gabbert held his pro day indoors, when it was reported that the wind was gusty in Columbia the day of his pro-day? Have you all thought to yourself why would Mel Kiper call Cam Newton a one year wonder, and Jimmy Clausen never had consecutive good seasons at Notre Dame. He was HORRIBLE his freshman and sophmore years. Speaking of Jimmy Clausen I want you all to watch this , and tell me what does his high school footage have in common with his professional footage...


I didn't read your post but I did watch the video and I got confused because for a while I thought that was Cam Newton throwing all those screens, check downs, and streaks to wide open receivers.

Cam=The Jimmy?

blahblahblah


You are so incredibly wrong it hurts, dude. Your entire premise is built that people don't want Cam Newton because... I don't even know.

You seem to think that everyone wants either Clausen, Gabbert, or Newton. You're insane.

Some of us just think that we would be a better team if we drafted Dareus or another player and got quarterback competition through FA.

As a note, some of us have seen Gabbert play. Some of us have watched him for two years. Some of us like him a lot. Almost none of us want him at #1. Some just would rather have him than Newton, which isn't necessarily saying much. I'm Gabberts biggest defender on these boards and I wouldn't draft him #1 overall.

edit: Clausen wasn't a one year wonder. His numbers weren't amazing his sophmore year, sure, but they weren't terrible. He may have been terrible, but it wasn't due to his stats... :P
