Hey everyone. Thought I'd clarify a few misconceptions in this thread, and explain the situation leading to the 'rumor' talking about Ross's alleged first interview on Saturday.

Starting with Marc Ross's interview(s). I was told by someone who had knowledge that Ross was in town on Saturday and meeting with Richardson, but this wasn't enough to run with -- also the timing seemed odd. Conducting Ron Rivera's exit interview, deciding to retain him, and interview a potential GM is a lot of daily activity, let alone on a weekend... which is normally unheard of in the Panthers.

It seemed significant enough to mention, but I wanted to make it clear that it was a rumor -- and not confirmed. Truthfully I have no clue who the front runner is. My guess is Gettleman solely because every potential candidate other than Ross come from a pro-personnel background, not college scouting -- but what do I know?

I'm from Australia, moved here 11 years ago. I've been following the team since 1995 because I have family in the area.

If there was any original content lifted from here and pasted on an inferior site then I apologize, but unfortunately the JPEG's our users post in comment threads isn't something I have control over. If one of our editors or authors took material and used it in a post, I'd like to know ASAP because it's in violation of our posting procedures. We only use photos licensed from Getty Images, USA today, or original content created by our authors. If something was incorrectly used I would like to remove it ASAP.

Overall I sense some hostility towards our site, and on one level I understand. Everyone likes to pull for 'their team', in this case their community. Ultimately, however, I think it's best to be cordial. I respect the community over here, and you guys are definitely hardcore fans. In fact, some of our users have tail-gated pre-game with people from here. While I haven't had the pleasure to interact with many here directly, I talk with some of you on Twitter -- almost always with good results.

In any event, best wishes to everyone here. Go Panthers, and all that jazz.

James, remember that time you said Blaine Gabbert was better than Cam? That's why no one takes you seriously.

Not sure I'll ever live that one down. Though it is one of those things that has kind of spun out and away from the truth by several degrees.

If you actually look at what I wrote pre-draft, I said that Newton had far and away the higher ceiling, and the far greater chance to be 'great', but I was very unsure about whether he could correct his mechanics at the next level, and become a true pocket passer.

Thankfully for all of us the organization took a risk that I wouldn't have -- at least playing armchair GM.

FWIW, I still think Gabbert has a future -- just needs to get away from that dumpster fire in Jacksonville. He always needed 1-2 years to sit before starting, and never should have been put in year-one. At least that's the way I see it.

The best thing to know before you join here:

There's some people who just won't compromise... as with anywhere, but you'll see it's especially prevalent here lmao (not a shot at you either JT)

i do visit an inferior site at times, but Gabbert problem cant be coached. he is too scary to play QB in this league.

Has there been any news on Gettleman? I still say he ends up being our guy.

I doubt we hear anything of substance prior to everyone being interviewed and most likely sometime next week at the earliest that a deal is struck and announced.
