Who all remembers the Smash and Dash name controversy?

Clearly. Hence why I joined June 2010.

When a commentator says, "Great play by Carolina's Superman," who do you think? Not Smith. Yeah, Smith has a tat and all. But Superman never caught on as his nickname. Unless I'm wrong, then please show me a case of that happening. Newton uses the same Superman celebration every time he scores. He has far, far more of a case of having that nickname than Smith ever did. So no, I do not consider him to hold the moniker of Superman.

But I guess I'm just a Cam era fan then.

You're completely missing the point. You asked who the third player was that is often associated with superman, I informed you that Smith has not only been referred to superman multiple times in his career, but he in fact wears a superman tat on his arm. It isn't a competition of who is referred to superman more, my comment was "we have three supermen" and your comment was "who besides luke and cam?". I answered your question and you are now trying to make it something else because you probably feel dumb for not remembering this. Or maybe you just never knew to begin with?

Anyways, run along. Nothing else to see here.

Taro is Alt J, he is a huge douchebag, who got banned before. He likes to get into arguments and throw piss fits and be complete douche for no reason.

I'm pretty sure all of this stuff is done just for fun by thevathletes and the only people who get upset are the type of fans who argue this stuff online without end.

I don't recall Newton or any commentator ever referring to Newton as Superman even once. Newton has no more claim to it than any of the long line of athletes who have made references in fun.

You said we have 3 players who use or have the Superman nickname on our team alone.  How am I making it into something else?

 

 

To be fair, superman is probably one of the most overused and common nicknames in sports.

 

We have 3 just on our team alone.

 

I can't remember the last time someone referred to Smith as Superman.  He is not "often" associated with Superman.  So no, I do not feel dumb.  My point remains.  Smith has never really had the moniker Superman.  At least not nearly to the extent of Newton and I've seen Kuechly referred to as Kent or something in the ilk than I have Smith called Superman.

 

Tis all I'm saying.  I do not consider Smith to have that nickname because rarely has he been referred to as that.  Again though, maybe I'm wrong.  I'm the Cam Era fan over here so maybe the true Panther fan can show me.

I can't help you if you were unaware of Smith being referred to as Superman. I'm sorry if you missed out on that point in our franchise. Not gonna waste my time trying to make you understand something though, later bro.

I just googled "Steve Smith, Superman."  He isn't even the first Smith that comes up.  1 picture putting a Superman thing on his chest doesn't mean anything.  There is no article calling him that.  Nothing.  I can't remember the last time in a game he has been referred as that.  Mind showing us, True Panthers Fan?

 

Smith's moniker has never been Superman.  He may have been called that sporadically by fans but it was never to the level of Newton or to a lesser extent, Kuechly with Clark Kent as seen by his little video in the NFL Top 100 thing.  Nobody has ever said, "Touchdown by Carolina's Superman" in reference of Smith except maybe a minuscule amount in 2005 / his early days.  Keep in mind, too, that was then (and I wouldn't say it was his moniker then, either).  We're talking now, making what I'm saying even more true.

 

Unlike you, however, I'm not as apologetic that you can't put a grasp on what I'm saying.
