Panthers hire police to keep media out of workout

85 posts in this topic

According to ESPN, the Panthers dont want the media covering any of our super secret player workouts. Thought it would be interesting for the Huddle

to take a stab at why they're going this route. Let the conspiracy theories commence!

The answer is clear. Richardson is selling the team and the don't want the media seeing LA on there Jerseys.

how about they just don't want to be bothered by the nagging and butt-hurt press pissed off that they still aren't allowed at practices? too easy?

seriously...let them have their time together. i know i would like to know what they are doing, but i'm willing to miss out on that so gantt can whine about something he's not even covering anymore and the reporters can find out that they aren't as important as they think they are.

Wouldn't the players have to cover the costs for the police security? I would think if the Panthers were paying for it, it becomes a gray area on whether it is a team organized function.

players paid for the security...

from the article:

Players hired a police officer to shoo away reporters from the high school where they were working out Tuesday morning. Cones blocked another entrance to the field at Charlotte Christian.

very true. This is all a circus act at the moment. They wont run the same drills, have position coaches, have appropriate trainers etc... Even Cam throwing to a w/r is worthless. No one is coaching the sharpness of routes, QB timing, footwork etc.. I am glad they get to toss the ball around but that is really the extent of the "learning." I hope people dont blow this pick up game into anything other than what it is.

This is just a good tool for team unity and relationship building. IF anyone actually thinks that these guys are going to be out there behaving even 25% similar to a training camp they are crazy.

I also hope they dont try and act like they are really training for a real football season/game. I dont want Cam embedding some bad habits with Gettis and Lafell before he is even coached by our staff. Not to even mention the fear of injury with a complete lack of trainers and stretchers out there. I know there are some trainers out there but the ones who work with DTs vs WRs is night and day.
