Not sure the Observer likes JR very much!!! Lets see in 2010 they destroyed any morale of our team by every day talking how cheap JR was and they sold that BS to the fans, the community, but they sold it to our players, we know the rest.
Now we got a QB that will take us to the Promised Land, so what they do all they can to make him not like the place that fate has put him in.
You can spin anything to be what you want it to be. Cam could have been out trying to make a living the way the rest of the QB's of any reputation are in the off season but no he is a money hungry player digging for a few more dollars acording to them.
Wonder how they make Cam feel???
Most of us love Cam but that is not the question but how much Cam loves us.. Observer don't like JR!!

Not sure whats more silly, the extreme outrage over the autographs or the extreme outrage over the extreme outrage over the autographs.

If you feel really strongly either way, you need a hobby.


Well, I said it in the other thread: there is no overreaction, just a normal reaction in my estimation. The whole situation is more pretentious than contentious. I don't like the fact that this aspect of sports marketing is so pervasive, but I am not going to exhibit histrionics because of my perceived ills of our capitalistic system. Cam is a product of this society and his generation. I understand what's going on, even if I don't agree with it.

In fact, I could make an argument that the conformity tips the scales in Cam's direction regarding this situation. It would be non-conformist for an athlete not to buckle up under the pressure of making the almighty dollar.

Personally, I don't believe that this is about small town thinking. Even in small towns you have business owners who are disciples of Mark Cuban and the rest of the financiers on Shark Tank. I think that it's more of being wistful, reminiscent of a more down-to-earth America thing.

And all-american boy's Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning do exactly the same thing. A session with PM can be arranged for a mere $50k, and AR charges $175 and up to sign at similar events.

The Observer should just pack it in and let the AP (Steve Reed) cover the Panthers.

Cam is the same fuging guy who started giving out game balls to kids in attendance at the games, and now he has the entire team doing it. Yeah, he's so fuging selfish and egotistical.

Scott Fowler just wanted a fuging story, Charlotte is proving ONCE again how shitty their 'news' reporters are. No wonder Smitty has so much angst towards them.


That's a good point. They haven't written about anything worth a damn in weeks. Just give us a feel good story or two.
