La Confora was one of the "Beane is expected to interview, don't rule out Beane, don't be surprised if it's Beane" guys. He probably just has some preconception that the Panthers are the type of team to promote from within and isn't going by any source on it.


Beat me to it.

I've begun to wonder if h get his Panthers info from Yasinskas.

In related news, GM Dave Gettlemen never worked as a college scout before taking the Panther job :unsure:


Hmmmm I don't know how I feel about that

Don't worry, he did.

Mr. Scott was just making fun of Yasinkas who reported he did not have college scouting experience (along with repeatedly spelling his name wrong). Don't worry, Gettleman's credentials are as good as any GM in the league.

Yas has been off a lot about the Panthers lately. He's a horrible NFC South reporter.

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.

Not if Gettleman is worth his salt they won't be.

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.
