Bleacher Report Power Rankings: WTF?
Posted 17 August 2012 - 11:48 PM
The Panthers are ranked 20th? Seriously?
I'll accept - maybe - that we don't need to be in the Top Ten yet. But we definitely should be considered in the top half of the league, with everything that we were able to do to finish out last season (and, of course, there's Cam - who should give us a few extra bumps up the list, well... just because)
What do you think? At this moment in pre-season, are we really 20th?

problem #2: you read it like it wasn't written by wannabe sports writer monkeys with no credentials other than "i post on a messsage board" and "i watch football sometimes so i think i know stuff and stuff" and "i'm a fan". ANYBODY with a keyboard can write and have it posted on BR. anybody.
problem #3: you shared it here thinking that it would matter. there's only a couple people who read BR thinking that it's worth reading and sharing and it's more than likely because they write have written an article for it themselves.

Only noobs get butthurt over the truck stop bathroom stall of sports message boards know as the bleacher report.
I actually like reading bathroom stall philosophy more than BR.

So regardless of how off-the-wall BR happens to be, some idiot posted that we're #20. I think we should be higher - regardless of where that report originated from. What say you? Where do you think the Panthers should be ranked heading into Week #1?

Aside from 'Blech', your post read like the guy's opinion was thread worthy. Maybe in June-July it would have been, but not in mid Aug. There's real action and real sports writing going on now.
Right-o. Seems nobody picked up on my subtle "Blech Report" reference in the post. Cool.
