Need meds? I think some of us are fans of a team that is currently 1-6 and has the talent to be contending for the superbowl.

I think some of us are pissed off with the way the organization we love is being run and wanted to see any change at all!

The real question is, why the rest of you arn't? learned helplessness I guess........

I guess I am happy to see they were entertaining the idea.


The season is lost. Nothing drastic is gonna change, what the fug are you talking about?

Why make moves when we haven't hired a long-term GM? Nothing will change until the off season, this isn't madde.

We didn't make any moves because it wasn't advantageous for us to do so at this time. Has nothing to do with not having a GM whatsoever. Some people think they are geniuses, when in fact they're not.

Every report I saw from contenders that potentially need help at running back (Packers, Cardinals, Broncos) said that they wanted to stick with who they had, likely because the options on the market (DeAngelo and Steven Jackson) at their current salaries and having to give up something of value weren't worthwhile. So it shouldn't be a surprise that DeAngelo is still here, nor should it be a surprise that we didn't dump Steve Smith for 15 cents on the dollar.

This isn't madden? Thanks for clarifying.

All I am saying is, a lot of people around here seem pretty darn happy with the status quo and want to tell people to calm down, and sip the koolaid.

AS A PANTHER FAN, I AM PISSED OFF. I just don't appreciate people telling spirited fans that they need to "take there meds" or calm down or be happy.

I thought we were suppose to be cutting and trading mode,WTF Blow it up.Am I the only Panther fan mad as *** right now?


Because as I said before Rivera has the final say in moves and with his job on the line why in the hell would he move some of his best players for draft picks when we probably won't even be here to use those picks. How hard is that for people to understand. Jesus

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".
