I appreciated DG as our beat writer, but I'm starting to wonder if he has an axe to grind with the franchise b/c of his forced departure from The Observer?

i dont remember the entire story of that, and being up in nyc i cant keep up with local media anymore, but regardless, that is a pretty shitty way to get shitcanned.  i'd be salty too if my job was taken from me because of an outside company's force.

He wrote a short article about the Panthers beating a bad team. Saw it last night.

His tweets on #New Ron are awesome

Gantt is better than anyone we have currently covering Carolina. I do like the articles Newton at ESPN does but as an every day reporter Gantt was the best


Jonathan Jones is really good as well

So, I take it Winthrop Lady's Field Hockey wasn't playing last night?

Gantt was too busy thinking that if Marty Hurney could be a GM that certainly he could as well.

I would wager his current gig was a step up from the Rock Hill Herald.

Gantt apparently has an axe to grind. Just for fun, I read PFT articles without looking at the writer of the article. I can always guess when it's Gantt because he is either taking an unnecessary cheap shot at the Panthers or has some comment at the end that is similar to a cheesy joke that he thinks is hilarious when in reality crickets are chirping.

We are over .500 for the first time in a near half decade....

We have deserved a lot of shots

I understand journalistic criticism but it seems Gantt goes out of his way to kick the Panthers when they are down. I can't respect a person like that.

We did beat a bad team. But we are supposed to beat bad teams. Good teams beat bad teams.

 

Key will be our NE/SF/NYJ games. We have to win one maybe two of those.

Gantt is a bitter troll. He's still heartbroken about losing the AP job to Steve Reed.

Gantt is negative and certainly a "glass half empty" type of dude. Read his tweets about the Panthers. Find me a positive one that's not a backhanded compliment or condescending. He isn't missed.

We don't make the schedule. We only play the games.

The Atlanta game next week is going to be HUGE. If we win, it will give us a little more wiggle room with the games coming up u mentioned.

Gantt sits there and baits his followers into response then goads them for following him. So I unfollowed, problem solved.
