Someone commented saying UA is the official combine people, so the NFL does have ties with UA.

 

Gloves and shoes too. I'm currently seeing about the helmet deal as well.

Leave the guy alone. He is doing a job. If he found the same thing on Matt Ryan, ppl would be sucking his twitter cock for weeks, and start numerous celebratory threads about the subject.

Yeah, its kind of crappy its OUR player...but damn its not that big of a deal...certainly not a big enough deal for the reporter to get stalked on twitter and have death wishes sent his way. Cam played a great game, the team FINALLY came on the way we knew they always could. People have been wishing for years we got some spotlight from the media..did you really think all of that spotlight was going to be positive?


You defend his right for freedom of speech but chastise us for exposing his obvious witch hunt ? Your post is laughable. If you believe this guy could find clips on Cam the size of a nickel, but overlook 20 others I would love for you to bid on this winning million dollar lottery ticket I have.

Obviously you have some reading comprehension problems. My issue was not his article so much, but the name calling and death wishes the guy got for writing about the issue. Seriously, some folks need to grow up. Its not a pleasant article for our team, and yeah he is a butt hurt Giants fan, but to call for the death of the guy over an article that will likely lead to nothing is just a bit too much.

 

I swear, some people use the love of football and our team as an excuse to act like babies. Some people dealt with the issue the right way (doing research, pointing out the flaws of the article, submitting photos of same thing on other players...etc) while others chose to kick and stomp like a toddler and throw around schoolyard insults and call for his head.

My reading comprehension is perfectly fine. Your original post was laughable because you were defending an article that lacked adequate research. You should research the definition of journalism before questioning my comprehension. When writing an article in a reputable magazine, adequate research is paramount. He failed to make his argument relevant or reputable by making Newton public enemy number # 1. Dozens of players wear the clips, but his article points to Newton as the renegade.


If you write a trashy article for the public to read you can't be surprised if you get called to the carpet by the public.

That would be true, and expected of a writer IF the publication were one focused on NFL, or even sports in general.

 

That a writer for a magazine focused on business did not do adequate research about a sports related article (although it does have a small tinge of business related to it) should not be a surprise. If some dude from Sports Illustrated does a story about IBM, few would expect them to put forth much effort in making sure all of the tech-related facts were true, accurate, and up to date. The article was about Cam...not umpteen other players. Granted, he did single Cam out on an issue that is appears others are guilty of as well, but again the article was not about others, it was about Cam, so in that regard his "research" as you put it seems pretty standard. (standard leave alot to be desired, but that another journalistic issue altogether)

 

 

 You say i defended the article, but yet I did not. What I did defend was the writers job in writing the article. I in no way defended the content of the article other than to point out that he is in fact correct that IFCam is wearing a logo unauthorized by the NFL then it is a violation. (A fact whether you want to acknowledge it or not,

 

The rest of my post concerned opinions outside of the article. And yes, I stand by my opinion that while we may have had some angst about the focus of the article, the stuff said about the guy has been atrocious. I mean seriously, we call Saints*** fans classless and such yet some of our people fill the guys twitter with such classless comments they might as well be Saints fans themselves.

 

As of yet, I havent heard that the NFL has come down on Cam or the team for it, so I'm not sure why the article was such a big deal. If in the coming days/weeks Cam gets fined as a result of the article, I could support "some" of the nasty comments 100%, but until then the article is barely worth mentioning, and certainly not something to be wishing death upon and making crude comments about his mother over.

This...right...fuggin...here.

 

If you're a half-assed journalist looking to make a name for yourself, and you have anything related to the Carolina Panthers in your crosshairs, just one bit of advice:

This guy is a whiny bitch...

 

After Zod busted his ass...

Chris Smith ‏@ChrisSmith813

@CarolinaHuddle @jjones9 Jeremy: You're aware that's from last November, yes? Curious how or why that discredits my reporting in the least.

 

 

 

Oh... you updated your story AFTER you got called out... how professional...

 

 

  1. @CarolinaHuddle (2/2) named others but honestly didn't find any originally. I think story is more embarrassing for NFL than it is Newton.

  2. @CarolinaHuddle That was a bit of hyperbole, and I've updated my story to name other players I've found with UA clips. I would have (1/2)

 

 

 

Basic Journalism you say?

 

 

@ThomasW06 (2/2) it's a violation. How am I not going to write that story? And at that point, requesting comment is just basic journalism.

Looking at some of the shots I could find online, it seems several players have the UA visors. So maybe just maybe Nike does not have one yet that has been approved by the NFL. So maybe just maybe they are still under contract for the UA visors.

I can sleep better at night now that the evil visor clips which can't be seen without a telescope have been exposed. All the problems currently going on in the world pale in comparison to this insidious plot.
