I'd like to congratulate Aaron Wilson on his new job covering the Panthers.







Wha...He works for who? :unsure:

 

He's a Baltimore Sun writer who breaks news on pretty much every team.

Is that low for a first rounder?


With the new CBA, all the pay scales are pretty much set in stone, so there aren't any deals higher or lower than normal.

However, apparently Star's deal contains some offset language, and that was not the case with last year's 14th pick. I'm not sure of the offset specifics, but offsets usually relate to what happens if the team cuts a drafted player and that player then signs with another team. I know neither Cam nor Luke had offsets, so it appears Gettleman is taking a harder line, even with draft picks.

Also will someone tell jamos14 to change his signature.  I can't seem to navigate away from the page.

You're not even joking. That sig is intoxicating.

I don't wanna be a critical jerk, but it'd be nice to see this kind of 'breaking news' from our own beat writers first.

Not a reporter so I don't know what their job is like. Just sayin'...

Mr. Scot says he's not a reporter. 

 

Yeah, right. 

 

You are a damn reporter around here.

What I do is probably more analysis than reporting.

That, and snarky comments.

Yes, you do well in snarky. 

 

 

 

 

I will give you that.

 

 

In all seriousness, between Marc with a C James and Joe Pearson, I truly think Charlotte may have the most polite and the most 'tarded media in western civilization.
