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