Yeah, but toward the end of your article, I think you mean "tenuous," not "tedious."


I was actually going to tedious, in that it's a "tiresome" process, by definition. However, "tenuous" is a better fit.

I could also just say "pain in the ass", for clarity.

Whoever the hell you are, you are a damn good writer.

Very, very good stuff.

Agreed. And being the only one who posts on the huddle is a plus. I know CO lurks in here, and I'm also glad CO doesn't post in here, because the idiocy that runs rampant in the Observer comment section would bring this huddle to an all-time low.

Keep up the good work, Mr Ellis. You are now my favorite read for Panther updates right in front of Steve Reed. Person has some work to do...

The writer, who constantly inserts commas, and abuses run on sentences, is not particularly good at this.

Here are my qualifications:

1. Radio dude
2. Reporter since 2003
3. Know more about the nuance/schematics of the pro game than any writer/talking head in this region.

Not being cocky. Just honest.

Thanks for the continued support.

instead of being a grammar nazi, you could have read the content of the article and appreciated the fact that he is unbiased in his reports on the team

That's tenuous, for sure.

I did read it.

The reason it appears unbiased is because it was based off work done by other journalists. He just compiled a bunch of training camp reports. There's nothing here you haven't read before besides his ponderous prose.

This guy is the only guy remotely media that has been objective. It's refreshing since a number of the non-media fans that tweeted from camp made observations of Cam completely inconsistent with what the reporters are saying.

Steve Reed (who is still the best).....summed up his camp review saying it was fair to say Cam overall outperformed Clausen.
