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.

Not getting the full cap relief from him retiring is more snacke bit juice for the franchise.
He may have felt its not worth the effort to go elsewhere and lose out to someone else.
He walks away with his health and youth and a nice bank acct. He will be fine.

Wow, was not expecting this. I was wondering why it took so long for us to make the move.

No bad things to say about the guy, I wish him well. I'm happy with the decision we made, given this news.

He probably seen it as a good run, stayed pretty healthy, and made a lot of money doing it. Next year with the Rams he could have had a severe concussion the first play of the season, you never know.

I'm glad he was a Carolina Panther. Its all bittersweet

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.

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.
