Florio criticizes Gettleman hire, calls it "dog and pony show"

76 posts in this topic

Florio must have caught the clap at Myrtle Beach in his younger days. I can't figure out why this guy is so down on Carolina.

I refuse to click on the link. So I have to ask, does he even offer another possible GM hire in the article? It would be incredibly stupid to bash the hire and not provide what he thinks would have been a better hire.

florio makes some inflammatory remark about a franchise, large/active fan forum quotes it and links it back to him...florio gets what he wants. more traffic. more link juice power.

Like I said, negativity is good for business in this type of media. Just look around.

Hey look. We went with Rivera who had been passed over 10 times (or whatever it was). Why were we the ones to pull the trigger?

I think Gettleman looks great on paper and it will be 5 years before we can evaluate him.

5 years? This board will be calling for his head if we lose the first game next year.

One thing that has puzzled me about JR is that he has loved and admired the Giants organzation and wanted to model the Panthers after them. But he let Hurney do what Hurney had fone for the past five years. It makes no sense. Better late than never i guess, with the Gettleman hire/philosophy.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
