Steve is not going to relocate his family, they like Charlotte. He will retire before being traded.


Yup. He said it himself. He's not going anywhere.

Listen to your self. Denial is the key word that pops to mind when I read this.


Denial when Steve smith said himself he would retire in Carolina?

Do you want our greatest player ever to be traded for chump change after all he's done for us?

Go get that tat removed.

...so denial is the word to defend when supporting your reaching assumptions.

...facts and first person accounts is whats used to support Smitty staying..this is not hard to understand.

After this season when Randy Moss and Tony G. retire. Steve Smith will be second in the league for receiving yards...only behind Reggie Wayne.

Quite a feat with subpar QB's IMO.

Him and Wayne came the same year- I am truly convinced that if our boy Smitty would have 15k by now if he had a Manning or Brady.

He's my favorite player, I don't think he will anymore, but I want him to get a ring even if with another team (not NFCs).


The sad part is, #'s 8, 9, 19 and 20 will be the reasons that Smitty will not make the HOF without at least 1 ring.

How many times have we heard a player from every sport say that he wants to retire in a certain destination. Approximate 8/10 players that say that end up playing somewhere else. I'm sorry if I don't want to sit idly by while this "receiving group" we have deteriorates any further. I like to be real with myself and my feelings. This in no way shows that I have no support for the club. In fact it shows the opposite.

Show me one recent example of a player that said thy were in their last couple years so if they were to be traded they would just retire, and then didn't stick by that word.

Smith decided a while ago that him and his family are committed to living in Charlotte, they found a high school for their kid, they aren't going anywhere.

Once again, remove you tattoo if you think smith is going anywhere.

I wasn't talking about our team. It happens in all sports players make statements that mean fug all. Plus using the same comeback twice shows your inferiority.

So you can't name one player? That's what I thought.

Smith isn't going anywhere and any real panther fan would know that.

Nice new username, now go get rid of your tattoo.

Smith still has a lot left, especially if the Panthers can every get a new #1 and be able to move Smith to the slot. He could easily turn into the Ricky Proehl role and play many more years. The question is if this Panther can get competitive again and he wants to stay around.

The Smitty man love blinds a lot of fans.....

Bottom line is Smitty says a lot but people put too much stock in "franchise" loyalty. It doesn't exist to the degree is pitched often.

Smitty wants to keep his family in Charlotte. So did Moose and so do tons of players who leave their families in cities and go play elsewhere....

If Smitty wants to play as long as his body would allow.....odds of him finishing as a Panther are simply slim. That is just reality. If he retires a Panther, he retires when he still could play IMO

Call me crazy but I think JR will trade Smitty to a championship contender next year just out of respect for what he did for the franchise.


That kind of thing doesn't really happen much in the real world. I can't think of an example myself off the top of my head.

Trades are made for the benefit of teams, not players.

Tony Gonzalez. KC rebuilding, traded him and said thanks.

But plenty of aging players have been parted with in rebuilds and youth movements and when teams move into new eras. All a matter of perception, you could choose to look at it that LC wasn't trying to do him a favor and was just trying to move into a new era of KC football.

They're traded because the franchise decides what another team offers for them is worth it. Sometimes they're right. Sometimes not.

That's not the same as sending a guy so he can get a ring with another team.

See my edit.

Lots of aging players are parted with.....regardless of reason Smith could be a Tony G. Part ways to move forward with a new era. Smitty brings a lot of baggage. Hard to build a new era with the poster child of the old era still on board.

Smith getting traded is a possibility (heck, about anyone getting traded is possible). I just wouldn't consider it very likely.
