Its probably used more to describe anyone who is perceived to be a trouble maker or someone that embraces the materialistic me first nonsense that plagues the air waves today,

People who like to be offended and look for a reason to be constantly probably see the word thug as a good opportunity.



If you say so Zod.

And at last check a "thug" is simply a not a trouble-maker, as you may define one to be based on your examples. The title is more associated with gangs of all races. But has since been watered down and thrown around by some to meet their own idea of "trouble-makers."

Also, we all know the purpose for and meaning behind words changes according to who and how it's used, Zod. I guess you must feel that the "N" word and others like it used to intentionally stereotype and do harm were just in the minds of those they were used against and those folks were looking "for a reason" to be offended.

Yes being born and raised outside of this country has taught me one thing; to truly get rid of a probem, on must first admit there is one. Sometimes, it seems way to many folks in this country have yet to honestly do.

Anyway, Congrats on your team finishing their season strong. I know a play-birth would be more preferred but this team is a work in progress. It first must learn to build confidence in knowing how to walk before it can run. Today is a sign that the Panthers are gelling as a team and is gaining the confidence to WIN.

Good Luck next season. I believe this team has the weapons and confidence. It just needs the maturity and discipline.

I criticized Cam early in the year for paying poorly and acting poorly.

He has fixed that over the past 5 or 6 games and I am glad he has.


Zod, You and I know that Cam was not doing anything different during the beginning of the season that he's not doing now. He's still wearing his towel on his head and still loves to win and hates to lose.

And as I've said from beginning, Cam's mistakes had more to do with him pressing and believing he needed to do it all instead of letting the game come to him and that could have been because the TEAM was not stepping up when they needed too. But it seems as if you're eyes were always on Cam and everything he did.

It does seem as if you're not being very objective at all towards Cam but is hiding your own personal prejudices behind every criticism and silly media scrutiny of him.
