?

Did you completely misinterpret the tone of my post? You must have. Read it again. This time don't picture the imaginary capslock (and ignore my avatar lol). Good lord, man. I thought we were just having a discussion here.

My bad. It just seems like every little thing I say people want to bounce on....I probably did read that under the assumption you had a little more in it.

You think giving Cam a "C" will help him become the leader that he should have been last season, but I think it will only stunt his growth as a player and leader. You never know the impact of telling a young player that "he's already proven enough" to be the "official" leader of the team. It can make him stronger (with Cam, this is very possible, no doubt) or it can make him spoiled, impatient, and stubborn. I wouldn't risk it.

Cam isn't an ordinary 2nd year player, I know. He can very well make the most of the opportunity, but he's the kind of player who's smart enough to know this is a locker room that respects their veterans and that he doesn't need a patch to lead this team anyways. Him not getting a patch doesn't make him think the team wants to downplay his presence as a leader. He's not the kind of dumb player you'd find on other teams who thinks his squad slapped him in the face for not giving him a patch and is already talking to his agent about getting out of town when his contract is up.

I actually prefer this idea of showing Cam he still has plenty more to prove before he can earn a patch. I think this will only serve to fire him up this season while making sure he still respects the veteran talent on the team.

Man you guys will find a way to argue about anything. Team captains are ... team captains. Who really gives a poo?

How many years have Smitty and Gross been captains now, at least two for both of them? It was always gonna be hard to take it off one of them and give it to Cam.

The players vote on the Captains. Therefore, whomever received a patch is EXACTLY the right person(s) to have received it.

Cam loves his o-linemen. Hell, he probably voted for Gross as a captain.

Arguing about the captains?

Wow. Never thought I'd see that.

I have zreo problems with who are captains, and who isn't.

It's not about who is irreplaceable.

Why people acting surprise like they didn't know Cam wasn't going to be a captain?
