it really wasn't that bad. People around here are over-sensitive when it comes to Charlotte for some reason. It's not a huge city like LA or New York. That's fine, nobody wants it to be.


I didn't really think it was that bad either. It's just that the media coverage of the Panthers has bothered me for years.

Don't like it because articles like this have a "Cam is bigger than Carolina" undertone. He's our QB, why even create a division between him and the franchise? To use her Peyton Manning example, no one ever said "Manning's big, even if the Colts aren't" because they're one and the same. She likes the player but wants to distance him from the team.

Sure Cam is big, but Jelisa will never find out just how big. Watch this video to find out why, it reveals something about her.

She makes great points... Even when I was in Jamaica in June some of the locals at the resort seen my Panther Tattoo and asked what it meant (its not the logo) and I explained I was a Panthers fan, no sooner than saying that they all were like "Cam Newton Is Awesome"....

Made me smile..

I think a comparison to Indy is very fair.

Yeah, I get all that. I'm not missing the point she's making in the article. Carolina has never had any real superstars, at least not at the level Cam is. What I am saying, is that for all the superstars out there, there are many more good players who go out there and do their job every Sunday, making it possible for the superstars to shine. I guess maybe it's the blue collar guy in me, but I've always taken a lot of pleasure in those kinds of guys, as much or more than the "stars". The fact that Carolina has never had a superstar of Cam's caliber doesn't take away a bit of the pleasure I got from seeing Wesley Walls haul one down in the red zone then drag guys with him as he crossed the goal line. Or the Dallas game when Greene, Mills, and Lathon pummeled not just Michael Irvin, but Neon Deion, too. Or when the notoriously immobile Steve Beuerline took it in against Green Bay in a mad diving lunge during a playoff game. My point is, superstars or not, Carolina has managed to field teams made up of guys who have always given me - for the most part - my money's worth as a fan. I'm stoked we have a guy like Cam, but I'm equally content to have a team full of pros who do their jobs to make the team a team.

it's not supposed to take away the pleasure of watching the less high profile players. every team has local heros, so to speak, like the jakes and walls and minters. it's not a slight on any of them. it's just that they are guys that haven't garnered much national attention or hype. they aren't/weren't household names outside of maybe their own fan bases.

it's not better. it's just different. the thing it helps is helping grow the fanbase, esp. at games. sure, championships help, but so do these big name guys. if it helps get more tickets in the hands of people cheering for the panthers, i'm all for it.

none of the things she said should be taken as a slight or offensive because it wasn't that at all. it was just a statement that in all the years she's been a panthers fan living on the west coast (which for the life of me i can't figure out why someone would be blasting her for any of this) she's never had the reaction that she's having now from people and it's because of cam. i don't know why anyone had to read into it anymore than that. it's just pretty silly.
