The media's job is too evaluate the team and offer criticism when they perform poorly. I see no problem with the picture. Cam whines a lot and he's known for that celebration. Superman is supposed to be invincible yet the Panthers keep losing games. Also the Hello Kitty reference is nothing new, ESPN has done it several times before with the Panthers.

Some of you should grow up a bit. You take it all too personally. If they didn't play so poorly on Thursday this picture would've not been drawn. They have no one to blame but themselves. Quarterbacks are leaders of the football team. When the team wins they gain most praise and when they lose they receive the most blame.


lol...Cam whines a lot? Whining involves talking and complaining. He simply can't stomach losing....and plays for an organization that deals with it fairly easily.

Building a great team starts with building the foundation. The foundation:
  • Ownership
  • Front office
  • Coaches
  • Fans
If our own Newspaper is poking fun at our Franchise QB, what does that say about us a Franchise?

Think it says our "franchise" QB has decent odds of following the new trend of guys deciding they want to change teams and flexing their muscle to get that done....

No point in Cam taking it on the chin....for what everyone else created. He was a playoff caliber QB last year.....was 6-10 bc of where he played.

only thing the observer is doing is making themselves out to be someone that the panthers won't want to talk to when things are going well.

our beat reporters will continue to get scooped because they've been acting like pricks and no one in the panthers clubhouse will want to talk to them. i seriously wouldn't blame any panther for turning down anyone at the observer for an interview. it's not being butthurt, either. it's not wanting to bother with pricks who will take cheapshots at you. no way i would waste my time with the observer after that. they certainly aren't owed anything. insults don't bother me, but when they come all it does is tell me that that person just isn't worth my time. i'd treat the observer just in the same way.

PSL holders en masse give their tickets away to fans from other teams rather than finding panther fans to get them to. the local paper treats you like crap. yeah, i wouldn't blame him for wanting to go somewhere that actually had a loyal fanbase and a town that actually knew how to support his team and him.

Oh ok, I stopped reading as soon as I seen the cartoon, my bad.

The only two people that have done their job right so far are the cartoonist and the Observer. They wanted traffic/readers and not only was it posted on NFL.com but we're already 8 pages in talking about a silly cartoon. Job well done. Meanwhile, people would rather there be a cartoon with someone like Charles Godfrey or the Cap'n. Yeah... THAT would generate something lol.

Again, the Oberver is a NEWS PAPER and Online Blog... they are not part of the Panthers nor are the Panthers their main focus. Why on earth would you expect them to cater and pander to the team?

I did hear though that the original cartoon simply had Cam frowning after his 3 INTs, and the caption said: DON'T WORRY, MASTER OF THIS CITY AND THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US, IT'LL GET BETTER SOON. GO TEAM! SUPERBOWL THOUGHTS! WAR PANHTERS!

But they decided that was a bit too much so they went in the current direction.

Blah, blah, I talk too much but NFL.com says it best...

Cam Newton might have met his kryptonite in the form of a sophomore season. A Carolina newspaper sure thinks so and isn't afraid to say so to last season's Offensive Rookie of the Year.



Isn't afraid being the key phrase, unlike some of you.

To me, it's that we don't know how to have a superstar, don't know how to appreciate one. God he's a record setting 23 year old QB. I mean for Chrissakes.

Um, how is a newspaper going to actually report good news and write stories in regards to the only decent sports organization in the area.....when they so quickly jump to this poo?

Players and an organization have to trust their local paper I order to give them stuff....you know the actual stuff worth reporting that is generally dependent on the two sides respecting each other.

I mean sure, we can get Steve Smith mouthing off.....but I assure you there are better things out there for us than that type stuff.

Sure we do....Peppers was the most physically gifted Panther drafted prior to Cam. Even though the front office let the line around him go from strong to complete dog poo....Peppers was suppose to save us. He didn't save us....so we declared him a heartless POS.
