Thought I'd be a bro and show it to you guys.



It's a pretty good read.

Not a very good writer, IMO.

When your last season was as hopeless as the 2010-2011 season for the Carolina Panthers, you need to do something big to improve the team as much as you can. The Panthers appear to have done just that in this past week, acquiring what may be a crucial part of any hopes they have of a quick turnaround.

<3 you guys too.

Anyone have any actual constructive criticism I could use? I haven't even started my first year of studying journalism yet, so it's obviously not going to be as good as a majority of the articles you see on larger sports websites. That's why useful feedback would help instead of "olololol bad".

And yeah, I noticed the run-ons now that I look. I was running on three hours of sleep and caffeine yesterday. Not really surprising. Shouldn't happen too often.

Before we start the "it's terrible" crap, keep in mind, I'm an 18 year old writer who's just going into his first year old college for Journalism. Or course this isn't as good as ESPN articles and other stuff. So, if you have a suggestion or any HELPFUL criticisms to help me improve, go right ahead. But temper your expectations a bit. I'm not even through college yet. Just out of high school, in fact. So bear with me for now until I get some more experience under my belt.

So this "friend" is someone else, that's not you...

It was a read. I killed some time with it. Better than some of the stuff I read on Yahoo sports by Jason Cole or Micheal Silver.

The friend would be me. I just can't make topics yet.

Today's on the Clausen/Newton situation.
