Mr. Scot

Beane was never a candidate

The "point" is to highlight that some of the media coverage of us has been inaccurate.

Some folks think it's because of deliberate misinformation. Possible. My take though? It's disinterest / apathy / laziness on the part of some of the journalists.

Said elsewhere, when you've got someone who apparently hasn't even bothered to read our new GMs bio (evidenced by his telling a chat patron that Gettleman had never worked as a college scout and not even spelling his name right in the initial article) to me that's a clear indicator that when it comes to covering our team, this guy just isn't putting in that much effort.

OK, that's a little more understandable, and the point is well taken. Like so many times, a thread has morphed into another discussion (which isn't necessarily bad, just the nature of the beast).

We all knew that national writers don't necessarily know poo about the Panthers, and their "coverage", or lack thereof, is evidence of that fact. When it's closer to home, that's another thing. Makes me wonder if perhaps the organization has pulled back on offering up information due to all the negativity as of late. Perhaps this is just the nature of the beast as well. Even the local guys are throwing stuff out there to see if it has some wings, because it's all they got.

You know, another possible source for the Beane stuff may have been Marty. Yas and Person perhaps couldn't get any info out of the organization, so they may have called up good ole Marty to get his opinion. Yeah, these guys are maybe lazy, but they got an otherwise implausible Beane name from somewhere.

Acorisi invites Beane to his house about an important role.

Beane tells the family, buys a new boat..gets a new suit for the press conference as his lifelong dream has come true.

Beans arrives at the house.

Acorisi is having a dinner party and asks Beane if he minds bringing out the dinner with Gettleman and Ross... Beane politely smiles and puts on the apron and graciously delivers the fine meal while holding back his quivering lip.

Hearing the laughter of a muffled conversation while standing in the kitchen Beane looks at his reflection on the stainless steel fridge and spits water at his dellusional blurred image.

He is a broken man as they announce Gettleman as the new GM...JR hands Beane his empty plate.

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
