...and it turns out that Ron Rivera had a hand in the decision, will it affect your opinion of Rivera as head coach of the Panthers?

If so, how?

I love it. Yeah I know, I know, but bottom line the guy doesn't want to be here anymore. As a coach or GM I get his ass off my roster ASAP. If Rivera said 'lets get him outta here' I salute him for having the balls to do what needed to be done for the betterment of the locker room and team even though it was a fan favorite.

None what so ever. I love smith and want him to stay,but this is a biz and he has to do whats best for himself at this stage of his career. I know he doesn't want to use his later years playing pitch and catch with a young quarterback.

I'm giving Rivera my full support right now. Just like I give all Panthers players and staff he will have my full support until he does something that clearly isn't in the best interest of the franchise. If he cuts Smith I will hate it I will be angry but I will trust that it is in the teams best interest.


But I hope he doesn't get rid of Smith...

All Rivera has to do is win games for me to be in his approval. We all know how playing favorites and keeping people in the forsaken doghouse lead to John Fox's decline and ultimate demise.

Steve Smith isn't in his prime.....

Steve Smith has a lot negative aspects about him....and he isn't the type WR you want on young team.

I think Rivera willing to part w/ a player like Smitty could be a clue he might be a pretty good coach.

Not really. Smith has been an issue for a while, and it's starting to get the point where his skills/production (lack there of) aren't making up for his antics. He's also on the decline, since his game is based on speed. I'd like to see it all worked out, but what can you do? This team has already wasted too much time on aging vets in the past.
