They did not chose Cam as the first pick, "we" did not pick Cam as the first pick. The Panthers administration did, and while they see something in Cam, the people who are trashing Cam hasn't. And they are entitled to their opinion. Personally I had Locker and possibly Gabbert over Cam but understood why they drafted him. Anyways, how is it pathetic for people to have their opinions?
WE are the fans of the Panthers. Therefore, we ARE a part of the organization. If there are no fans, if there are no PSLs sold, there is no franchise... So WE are a part of this franchise. Therefore, when my team drafts a player, I will say "we" drafted that player.
It doesn't matter if you like it or not, it's who "WE" drafted, so you have to live with it. I didn't think Clausen was going to be great when we drafted him, but I had to pull for him because this is MY team, and WE drafted him. You see?
We each bring our own opinions and thoughts to the table, but at the end of the day, the decisions are made by the guys that are getting paid to make them - and if you care about this team, you are trusting that they are acting on our behalf and in our best interest as fans to put a productive and successful product on the field.
If we would've took anyone of the guys you mentioned, I bet half of these dickbags would be saying "WE" drafted (insert name here) because they liked the pick. Difference between me and a lot of these fake ass fans that have showed up during the last year (there was a huge influx of people that came in at the start of last year for some reason, then more before the draft this year), is that I say "we" whether I like the pick or not.
If you don't feel like you're a part of this franchise then why even post on this board or discuss things regarding the team?
I don't know, maybe I'm just a different kind of fan. I bleed black, blue, and sliver, and so will my children...
What's pathetic is that half of the people on here arguing or starting arguments, aren't arguing for what they believe is best for the team, their doing it just to piss people off. For the most part, even people I've gotten into it with on this board, guys don't care who is out there so long as they win. This is what is lacking in the motives of these jackasses who keep trolling Cam threads.
I guarantee you if these dumbasses would stop posting useless, redundant, repetitive sh*t talk, you would see a much more peaceful and objective board. It's pathetic because the people doing this are doing it under the assumption that their argument makes a f*cking difference. We get it - you don't like him. Great, let's see what happens.
We can't have a competent, calm, and cordial discussion on OUR team because people that don't give a sh*t about the team keep wanting to re-hash stats from Cam's college season to prove how he will or won't be an NFL QB. You know how many people on here laughed at Tampa for drafting Josh Freeman? Guess what you Marty McFly motherf*ckers, we can't go back and change anything that's already done, so you're gonna have to live with it... If you like the team, you're pulling for this guy to succeed because we invested a high pick and money in him to be the face of the franchise. So, you quoting stats and plays from a college game where maybe 4-7 guys ended up in the pros ain't gonna do sh*t now... We all have to watch and see, and real fans would put their butthurt aside and pull for Cam.
I've never seen sh*t like this in my life... I've been on this board since year one - within a month or so after it was up... And that's why it's pathetic. Never have I seen our fanbase become so polarized and fractured over something they haven't even seen yet and have no evidence to base an argument off of or start so much sh*t over one of our own players - and that's including the Jake Delhomme/Chris Weinke debates.
This is the dumbest this board has EVER been, and that's saying something. I can't open a f*cking thread without some cocksucker starting a pissing match and picture war. I can't read about my team and get some good objective conversation with unique observations without some f*ckoff jumping in and dumbing it down immediately to a sh*t throwing contest. I'm sick of it. That's what is pathetic. This board has never been so bad off in terms of regular posters. In fact, many of our quality posters don't even post in here anymore, or as frequently because it's gotten so sh*tty.
I've never seen Zod, Kurb, Panthro, Squirrel, or whoever have to lock so many threads for such f*cking ridiculous reasons as they do now. It is really disgusting.
I'm tempted to just log myself out on the regular, so I have to make the decision of whether to log myself in or not as I'm reading things... That way I have to give it a second thought, just in case I'm moved to jump into another one of these cluster f*ck threads. I'm really tired of dealing with it. So, there, that's what is pathetic.
Let me save you the trouble, here's your response (and if not yours then some other jackass who enjoys sh*tty threads, dumbassery, trolling, and pulling everyone down to their borderline retarded IQ level):
