I am meaning no real disrespect, but if anything the Panthers do or don't do comes anywhere close to "pissing you off" or "wanting to rage", you are:
1. Either 12 yo and therefore everything trivial in life seems like the end of the world, or
2. You shoul re-evaluate your life to see what is really important. The Panthers and the NFL are entertainment for a Sunday afternoon...nothing more.
You can't control any aspect of the team or the game. Sit back....enjoy them for entertainment...and let the rest be what it is.
Now you may return to your regularly scheduled programming bitching about the Panthers.
Well, I understand your point. I appreciate you not meaning any disrespect.
1. No, I am not 12.
2. I believe my life needs NO re-evaluation.
I appreciate your concern, but, I believe it is entirely possible to be upset by entertainment. Actually, when you have invested enough of your time and money into following a sports team as I believe most of the individuals in this forum have, then it becomes a little personal.
I constantly find myself explaining to my wife the same thing. When the Panthers lose on Sunday, I always take it to heart. She says, "its just a game, why are you so upset?" and again and again I have to explain. It is my hobby, it is what I follow, read, discuss, pay money for, research, love. I may not ever be associated with the organization, but I refer to them as MY team. I have been a fan since the beginning and watched the team through its ups and down. I enjoy it. I will continue to follow the Panthers, but, I do not have to be happy when they make moves that most people with a common knowledge of football would believe are less-than-intelligent.
We are all members of this board for the same reason. We have common interests. Just don't belittle me because I allow my emotions to become involved in your "entertainment".
