Really people, beason deserves all the love from us fans, but this trade is ludicrous. It's obvious our gm is helping his former team. Yea beason isn't the same player he was before the injuries but a 7th for him is absurd. I'm sorry, but this trade is Soo bad it's not even funny, fug our organization way to be bottom dwellers a 4th would have been ideal straight up, nyg got a steal, it's obvious what team gettleman cares about more, fug this trade and how this organization has been ran, no wonder why we haven't seen the playoffs since '08

your emotions are misleading you.

Jon, you are going to be missed. By the City of Charlotte, by the Panthers organization, by Panther fans everywhere, by me. :wub:

Thank you for all you gave us. Best wishes for the future and don't stop giving 100%, ever.  


BTW be careful in the party bars in NYC and NJ. They make Charlotte bars look like the YMCA after school day care. :mad:

I will really miss Jon Beason. Talk about the epitome of what a great player and person is. He always exuded class, was a beast is the field, and was born to lead. I hate losing him, but I wish him the best of health and luck in New York.

At one point Beason was the face of the franchise.  In 2010 he was the best player on the worst team in the league.  The next 2 years he got hurt early and was never the same.  There was a time when he was neck and neck with D. Ryans in the "Who is the best LB in football?" conversation. Oh, how the mighty have fallen!


I'm okay with this move because I think it honors the fact that Beason didn't want to sit on the sidelines and watch this defense rise to a level that it never could while he was out there despite the fact that he was an all pro level player for at least 2 or 3 years.


It is a wise and respectful decision on Gettleman's part.  I'll miss Beason, but...yeah...it's a business.


#52 is the only jersey I have ever owned.  I'm not really in a financial position to go out and buy an "officially licensed" jersey right now.  I'm torn as to whether I should just go ahead and sport the #52 or whether I should retire it.  I wore it vs. Giants and we stomped them, so I'm feeling a bit superstitious about dissing it.  I hesitate to get a Cam jersey until he actually signs an extension.  Hardy as well.  Maybe I'll go get me a cheapo #89 just because the man is probably the greatest Panther of all time.

Jon thanks for locking down the MLB spot for several seasons. There was a time when you achieved greatness, and remember to keep that with you as you move on to NY. Best of luck.

Wonderful player.  Great MLB.  High value ethics and a perfect role model for young players.

I will definitely miss the Beast.  I've worn the #52 proudly for years.  My wife wears #52.  My dog wears #52.  My dog's name is Beason.  This is a tough one to swallow but I honestly know it's what is best for #52.  The kid is a MLB and he was not going to get that back here.  Good job by this organization to recognize this and get him somewhere he can contribute.  Godspeed Beast.

I'm going to miss seeing him as a panther and I'm still going to rock his jersey on game day.

Well this sucks.. I'll genuinely miss him.

And since we've already played the giants this year, I really hope he dominates as one.
