If I were a professional athlete playing in a city with poo poor fans like yourself.....I would probably leave too.

God how the Huddle has reached an all time low.

We now make the Falcon, Bucs, and Saints boards look fantastic.


I used to think the saints board was bad or even the Vick era falcons board...


But I'll be damned if the level of moronic bandwagon fans hasn't destroyed all intellectual football conversation on here.....

Cam has a chance to start a legacy here. To be a franchises first true franchise QB and superbowl winner. There's a lot of pride a player would take it that. We are also going to pay him a retarded amount of money. This franchise has also shown that it's willing to do whatever it takes to give Cam what he needs to succeed. We are building a team to fit him.


Also, this has to do with the legacy thing but Cam has the opportunity to flip the Carolina Panthers into one of the trendiest teams in the league if he succeeds. We would become the hornets of the NFL.

If something doesn't change (great coaching, great FA, wins) its gonna cost us our entire salary cap to keep him!

I mean he can probably play most positions but man he will be tired... :phew: joking aside, it may take too much unless our Tradition changes here and we step it up, the organization is better than this and they need to show it!

I salivate over the absurd amount of draft picks it would take to pry a franchised Cam Newton from Don Gettleman.


I don't know...I think we all assume we know Don better than we do.

That is Don QBs Should Pass Not Run Gettleman. Cam doesn't seem like the obvious pairing. That is why I am 1000000% pulling for Rivera this year. Keep Rivera....Keep Cam. That, I feel confident in. Cam just needs to win on for the Chico.

I think Don Gets is a football guy and respects football players who make plays.


But I do see your point.

Just for the sake of argument, let's say Cam wanted out as soon as possible. He knows the team can hang onto him for 7 years. Meanwhile, following his 3rd year he has an offer on the table for $110 million with say $45 million or more guaranteed. His agent wants him to sign too so he gets his cut. Do you really think he's going to keep turning down big money and wait 4 years just to be able to go wherever he wants?

I don't see it.

Even if many fans don't like Richardson, it seems players like and respect him. I honestly think there is more to it than large contracts as well.

Especially since he could get hurt before ever getting that contract if he waits.

I think the James Anderson Virginia Tech fanboi is a little upset today.

He is right about one thing. We do have poo for players and Gett is cleaning house and making space.
