Yep.

Anyone else remember a while back I posted a thread (concerning perceptions of Cam Newton) saying that some in the media aren't interested enough / don't care enough about the Panthers to work all that hard on fact checking the stories they write?

I present to the court the preceding evidence...

Yeah but a lot of those are in the national media and have little to no local knowledge whatsoever of our franchise.

Pat Yasinkas on the other hand does not have that excuse. I don't know why anyone even posts his articles.

Sports reporters today are so worried about getting the story out first they don't check anything or as we've seen even bother to spell people's names correctly. I think half of them just make things up based on something having a possibility being true. Like knowing Steve Smith is getting up there in age and reported that inside sources say Smith considering retirement and his present contract with the Panthers could be his last.

It's gotten beyond stupid.

I'll grant that when it comes to screwing things up, it's not just the Panthers. We're just one of the more common victims (though I'll grant that could be perception).

There's stuff like the annual event of some "source" saying Bill Cowher wants to coach again, followed up yearly by Cowher himself saying "no I don't".

Like I said in the prior thread, sports journalism barely even exists anymore. All we have is sports talk.

Yas has always been a terrible writer. I've never been able to stand the garbage he spews.

I actually thought he was pretty good when he was with the Observer (other than griping about Steve Smith too much).

Since he went to ESPN, though...

Ah, to be honest I've never read the Observer really, so I can't comment on that. Ever since he's been the ESPN South blogger he's been terrible.

Really hope we get this guy. Put that 90 million dollar backfield to work. That is if they're all coming back next year

True, but i think in a transition year he might keep him. Whats the cap hit or loss to cut dlo. Doubt we get tradr suitors for a 30 year old rb with that enormous contract.
