Still loving Gettleman?

I can understand questioning his approach to the situation. But this debate is going to lead to people really disliking him after they feel the need to repeat themselves over and over in the thread.

I don't buy that it was an insult. He said he was evaluating him. You can take that as an insult but I don't believe it was. Words do have meaning.

 

 

My guess it is about the money we are paying him

Time will tell but I have a feeling that people will be calling for his head at the end of next season. He is in rebuild mode while we are in playoff mode.

Would we have been 12-4 without him?  There is no other GM I would rather have right now.

Based on what?  What has changed? Nothing unexpected has happened.

so do you truly believe that smith has no reason to be upset about the situation?

Pretty much, yes.

Are you referring to tiger7_88? He literally became a fan of the team because we drafted Cam Newton. He's an Auburn Tigers fan. Ask him yourself.

What exactly do you think the "tiger" in his name means?

If you need any other assistance following along in this thread, let me know sweetheart.

Could you please provide the requirements it takes to become a gee-whiz JEN-YOO-WINE mega-fan such as yourself? I'm sure the team would prefer to pare down their offerings of tickets and merchandise only to the true-Carolina-blue such as yourself.

Special players/employees are treated differently but if they aren't producing anymore they are no longer special for the present or future. Steve has been special for the past 10+ years and he deserves alot of credit for that but going forward he is no longer special.

It is kinda like a car. It has been the cornerstone of your life but after 10+ years the car is starting to breakdown. There comes a time when you say man it is not worth taking this car to get fixed anymore.

I've been working in the software industry for the same company for about 16 years now. For about the last five years, it hasn't been unusual to see about one "special" employee a month get the "pack your stuff in a box and thank you for your service, you've got 30 minutes to get out the door" perp-walk.

But millionaire Steve Smith found out through the media something he should have already assumed if he was smart: that HE is being evaluated just like every other damn player on this team.

OH NOEZ! G-MAN DONE DISRESPECTED SMITTY! :rollseyes:

Yes I did take it as an insult to Smith and I believe that Smith was bothered by it as well. You don't tell the media that you're evaluating Smith while speaking of him in the past tense. You are right about one thing though, words do have meaning.

He didn't use the past tense.

That is it. Gettleman doesn't like to overpay. Smith is great, but not a no 1 WR anymore.
