Please get Gantt back on the Panthers beat. He is god awful at covering Winthrop (you can tell he doesn't give two f*cks)

People hated Gantt because he is an Armanti fan and they let their hate of the pick bias their opinion of him. You never know what you have till you get stuck with Joe Person.


Gantt opinions go back waaaaaay before Armanti Edwards

Where did the info that Clausen was getting this bonus come from in the first place. I dismissed an entire site that had salary cap figures based on them showing him not being due any bonus in 2012. Either they were correct or just lucky.

The hate for Gantt went back to his perception of supporting Delhomme days.

He was just reporting how the Panthers felt about Delhomme, and people took it personally.

However, it is apparent that he did hold a high personal opinion of Jake. It seems he always believed that Jake did not get a fair shake from fans.

I loved Gantt from his days of blasting Seifert.

He puts in the effort and obviously has the passion for covering it.

His hissy fits over players or coaches not giving him access really turned me off. Also his attempts at player analysis are sad.

I used to dislike him for those reasons but I've mellowed out on that completely.

I realized I'd rather have a fan as beat writer than...... Joe Person...

holy god Gantt is such a better reporter than Person. He provides useful information, is witty, and seems to be more on top of the signings/cuts/visits than Person is.



I always liked Gantt. Huddle fans hate every NFL insider from every Media outlet..just because.

Joe Person seems like he just hates his job and puts in the least effort into Panther coverage in the history of the Even-More-Casual- Observer: "Twice the casual,half the observing!"

You would think Jerry Richardson violated his mother 40 years ago at a Hardees and he is trying to get revenge as an insider...wait a minute..:eek:

I remember when everyone hated Gantt

He's better than Person, but he's still a tool
