So, we're on track to finish 4-12 this year. It sucks, but honestly, most people expected a rough year for us given the schedule, youth of the team, the lockout's effect on the off-season, a rookie HC, and now injuries at D.

But in every loss except the Falcons game, Cam Newton has been amazing. He has almost single handedly produced all of our offensive firepower and kept these games close. He's light years ahead of anyone's prediction and expectations. He's broken records, and is on track to break more. Everyone in the media business who doubted him, is either backpedaling big time, or is just responding with "Wow, I was wrong".

The only people arguing against Cam at this point, and who are trying to say he doesn't have what it takes to play at a high level in this league, are people who are established trolls on this board.

I respect that everyone is entitled to their opinion. But when that expression of opinion is obviously intended to cause a flame war, for the sake of trolling, from the same people every thread, there's a problem.

To be honest, I don't even bother reading more than the first page of most Cam threads these days, because within four or five posts, one of a handful of posters is taking a shot a Newton, and the same old poo storm is stirred up.

I think there needs to be some higher degree of moderation here, at least to send a message to those who would troll.

'Preciate the input. We're not owned by the Panthers organization, so we'll continue to let people voice their opinion whether it's accepted/lapped up by the community here or not...

BCG, I think you have to expect Cam trolls on a board like this no matter what the mods do. There's always been an element to our fanbase that wouldnt accept a QB like Cameron and felt they were entitled to be vocal and ignorant about it, that doesnt go away in one offseason. By far the environment here is more positive and constructive than pre-draft, but that ignorant lowest common denominator element of "fans" will always be around as long as Newt is our guy. Just remember that these "trolls" are usually low self esteem types who's boring life gives them the time and energy to hate on someone who's better than them on a message board all day.

Besides, who really wants to visit a messageboard full of drones all singing songs of candyland and giving each reach-arounds whilst discussing teh awesomeness that is Cam Newton?

That sounds boring as fug to me. Of course, I like controversy, dissension and angst... so...

SUcks morons are aloud to voice their opinion, but thats why this is just an online forum, so I don't have to deal with idiots in real life (not by choice anyway) and I only have to see what they say when I am unbearably bored and come on here.

Wish you did because when you have a poster like TheOracle posting on game days, either he needs to be banned or he is a Mod Alt as he can do whatever the fug he wants.
Pathetic.

Criticism of Cam isn't the issue. Logical debate about his play isn't the issue.

But there's a line that's crossed when a handful of people continue to bash him, for no reason but to troll and start flame wars, when it's obvious they are trolls, have been banned multiple times here for being trolls, and have banned from other message boards for being trolls. I'm only talking about a handful of people, and it's obvious who they are.

Having people post negative comments about our record-breaking rookie QB in almost every single thread about him to the point that multi-page flame wars are started, when he happens to have helped score, or score directly, 18 out of our 21 TDs this season so far, is NOT letting them "voice their opinion". It's letting trolls take over this board.

And to be honest... this place isn't the only Panthers forum on the Internet. People will get sick of this crap and leave.

If idiots couldn't speak their mind, how could you identify the idiots?

Everyone should get the chance to show what they are. Once they have proven it though, appropriate responses should be made. In this case, when it gets to the point it has, when the trolls are being trolls... the response should be one for trolls.

It would seem no one is forcing trolls off this board either.
