Do you think other teams are just being stupid by passing on him or, like the other examples listed above, do you think to yourself "maybe there's a reason"?
Maybe Ross passed on them.

As fuged up as this sounds, the more negativity I hear about Ross the more I'm starting to think the GM job is going to come down to him and Beane with him winning the job. I'd be perfectly fine with either of them to be honest.
You'd be fine with Beane?

I'd be fine with anybody they hire. If they called up Peewee Herman and gave him the job I'd be fine with it. I have no control over the situation, and I love the Panthers. So the way I see it I have to choices. I can either follow the team I've loved all of it's life or find something else to do. I've never willingly missed a game, and regardless of who manages, coaches, or plays for this team I don't plan on doing so anytime soon. No matter how bad things get. Unless of course the move the team like they did the Hornets. Then they're dead to me.

Someone with better understanding of how Front Offices work I have a question.
Would it be to far off to believe that if you get a GM without being a "Cap Guy" we simply go out and find a great "Cap Guy" to go along with the GM? Maybe that is not how it works but seems like would be a good idea. If that is true, who are the best "Cap Guys" out there that would not be a GM and welling to work for the GM candidates we have heard of so far?
While the cap may seem complicated to us non-professionals, it is much more difficult to find a good talent evaluator than a good cap guy. The ideal candidate might be someone that had both a legal and financial background. We actually already have someone on staff for that (Rodgers). He is probably fine. I doubt he bears the blame for our cap problems, as he just did what JR/Hurney told him to do.
Were I JR, the lack of cap experience wouldn't prevent me from hiring a good evaluator as GM.

are you agreeing or disputing, cant tell
change of culture is needed. fresh blood is needed and it needs to be an infusion from a more successful source than our own.
i do not want beane. i want someone that has been a part of an organization that knows how to excel and it should be someone with relevant experience and played a significant role in building or at least maintaining that winning organization. none of that is beane.
