Cam's big, even if Carolina isn't

I understand what she's trying to say... but damn if she didn't come off as a snide bitch. Seriously, it seemed like every other word she typed was some sort of condescending remark.

I guess 'dem ho's is ready for the season to start as well.

I understand the point she's trying to make here, but I do take issue with her contention that Carolina has never had any noteworthy players before Cam, Julius, and Steve. While they may not have gotten spreads in GQ, as a guy who has watched and been a fan of this team since 1995, I cannot help but have warm memories of many former Panthers. Some that come to mind include Jake Delhomme, Steve Buereline (sp?), Kevin Greene, Sam Mills, Lamar Lathon, Wesley Walls, Ricky Proehl, Brentson Buckner, Mike Rucker, Mushin Muhammed, Mike MInter, and several others. Granted, they may not have been the guys that Under Armour and Nike wanted to pitch their products, but they were all fine players for Carolina who are responsible for many, many hours of pleasurable football viewing for me over a large portion of my life.

outside of long term carolina fans and the more hard core NFL fans, those other guys you listed were just guys and barely known. they weren't big names that generated a lot of excitement. they didn't bring in many fans from outside the carolinas they didn't bring in bandwagon fans (which isn't necessarily a bad thing).

we had good players, but not "star" players.

The article makes sense. And it's a good thing for us... Cam doesnt have to be in a big market, like he would if he played NBA or MLB. In the NFL big stars can thrive in smaller markets and that give us a great chance to resign him when the time comes.

Cam is already by far our biggest star ever. He lives up to the hype and you might as well make his face the logo.

Teal?

I'll say one thing about this franchise, we are on a fast track rise. Last night I watched the Panther/Cardinals season opener from last year. The number of Panther fans at that game was pretty suprising. TV could have been playing a trick on me, but I saw a lot of Panther blue in that stadium.

Fug the rest of the world, go Panthers.

I was at that game, and I purposely wore my Beason alternate blue to stand out as much as possible in a sea of red. I'm obnoxious like that. I wish I had the tv recording to see if I could find me and my wife in the crowd. fug the world, go Panthers.

PS: that line about Kevin Kolb's big dumb head did make me laugh. Not out loud, but it was internal and nearly audible.

Once while riding a bus in Bosnia I saw a guy wearing a Wrightsville Beach tee-shirt. When I asked him were in NC he was from he looked at me funny......he didn't speak English.

In Malawi I saw a Malawian wearing a Wachovia tee-shirt.

the end

It would be interesting to see what she had to say about the taints* before 2009 or whenever the NFL gave them the Superbowl...

So were there as many Panther fans there as it looked on TV? Every time we scored you could see and hear a lot of cheering.

That article was oozing with condescension. Methinks she's the kind of bitch that holds her home state with disdain after having moved away from it, replete with a posh NBC writing position.

"The answer was typically a town that was, like, three Cracker Barrels from my own."

What does that even mean?
