reputation is the new pie. You can even take someone's pie now.

rep was better than pie but i liked both. it's not necessary to run a good forum but it's kind of a morale-buster to take away people's meaningless internet dots. internet cred is important.

yeah the repped post stuff isn't very effective.

it's interesting how a network of reputation-building can actually lend a personalized feel to a very impersonal web-based discussion. there are senses of friendship and camaraderie that actually build on the admittedly silly concept of "just a bunch of green internet dots." rep and pie add a greater sense of belonging in a community so that users are more than just a couple of avatars and opinions. there is a greater sense of involvement and holistic participation that i feel the huddle has lost just in the last couple of days.

and i hate using words like holistic.

my suggesting is everyone get a notepad and a pencil every time you get on the huddle and every time someone likes your post the quote it and say "pi" then you tally it down on your notepad. I just give myself mental pi on all of my posts and couldn't care less what others think. But I understand for some, an ego boost here or there is their whole reason for the Huddle.

there is also virtually no point to rep as it stands currently. there is no instantly calculable parallel between a good post and the advance in reputation. the numbers are simply too high, and the only way to access it is by viewing an individual profile and nobody is going to bother with that.

i always scoffed at the saints and falcons message boards because they had this same sort of generic personality. i'll still post here as this place has its collective fingers on the pulse of the panthers franchise and is a great source of information, but by fanaticism in checking for updates is starting to lean only towards getting those updates and less in enjoying aspects of participation.

i think i'm gonna go get a life instead

    • Steve Beuerlein's pointing about not holding on to the ball so long was interesting to me. Some of you who remember when Beuerlein was here will remember that he took a straight beating in '99 and '00 and he also had a tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. It might be smart for Cam to listen to someone who had 21 surgeries from football injuries because of this. I love me some Cam and I want to see him as the starting QB for the Panthers for a long time to come.
    • As an LSU fan, I've seen nearly all of Fournette's games and he is the real deal. He was the best running back on the team. It does not take a genius to run the read option running attack and most of the work is on the Qb. I wouldn't mind either but Fournette should be taken if he's available.      My pipedream is for us to trade next year's 1st and both 2's for us to get a Fournette and Howard combo. I think it would be worth it.
    • I'm surprised that people actually buy into this idea that our offense is going to look drastically different. I'd be shocked if it does. I hope I'm wrong, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots. If Shula had the ability to adapt he would've already done it. He is who he is and this offense is what it is. If you want real changes you make a change at OC. We didn't and we'll see an offense that looks far more familiar than different next season.
