Bruton Smith Offers to Buy Panthers

46 posts in this topic

No NASCAR ties. We dont need any more hillbilly ties to this franchise.

Yes we do. Hillbillies buy tickes, hillbillies make noise. It's these "arrive-late, rather tailgate, wine and cheesers" that we don't need anymore of. Unfortunately that is the price of having PSLs.

The company I work for has had the pleasure (or displeasure) of working with most of the big wigs in Cabarrus County (and some beyond). The general consensus around the office is that Bruton Smith is the 2nd biggest asshole in our area, second only to Teresa Earnhardt.

I think that he would be worse than Jerry. He's proven time after time that in NASCAR he doesnt care about what the fans or drivers want, all he cares about is profit.

I'm not seeing the difference

He is one of the very few people who could turn me away from being a Panther fan.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
