If one of you guys can get me a 50% off Gamble jersey from the team store, I'll pay a finders fee of some sort. Online it looks like they got his in mesh screen print only. fug that noise.

TBQH - I was a little dissapointed we didn't try to work something out to retain Gamble, but after reading this it makes me feel 100X better about the move.

If Gamble is serious about this retirement, it just proves his heart wasn't in the game anymore.

Actually that's not the only reason someone in his position would retire. He may not have wanted to uproot himself out of the area to move to another team, doesn't mean he wouldn't have played with us in 2013. He certainly didn't look like he was mailing it in the last two years he was on the field.

Wow. Well, he always seemed to dislike the business of football. Good luck in retirement.

He dislikes it because he is one of the baddest men in the world and no one knows his name outside of NC. He was sadly overlooked his entire life because he was a Panther. National media being the sensationalists they are, would never prop up a guy like Gamble because there just werent dollars in it.

Furthermore, its obvious that Goodell, the refs, and the fans of the NFL are no longer interested in seeing a fair matchup between receivers and corners. Everyone apparently just wants to see touchdowns.


aaaand you know, we should cater to the stupid people. . . Its been a trend for about 20 years now. Every president we've had has made that a mission recently.


Im not sure Im going to be watching football 5 years from now. . . Im really not.

Thanks for taking things out of context like a typical member of the huddle, why don't you quote the full post so you don't look like such a dumb ass.

Maybe you can explain how retiring before he got cut was going to "help out the Panthers."

I'll wait right here.

As a lot of other people thought, we would save his entire 11M instead of just 7M, that turned out to be incorrect; I didn't have time to edit the post so I just left it.

If you scroll on further down I even questioned, why don't we resign him so he can retire as a Panther?

Probably wanted to retire while his body still functioned relatively well. Football players have a good life while they play, but they pay a high price for it later in life.
