#2726630 Things over the past year that Smitty has done that don't correspond to t...

Posted by Alverez on 04 April 2014 - 02:47 AM

one good deed is great. Everyone enjoys a good heart felt story and is touched for that moment they read about it. Very few take up and say "ya know what? I'm going to spread that message from this day forward on how to be a good Samaritan!"


one bad media piece, TMZ, ESPN, TWITTER, haters, and the like weigh in and the story goes viral in an instant. Very few people, sit back and go "but he signed for an hour and a half after everyone else left the field at training camp!" they say "Did you see what Smitty did?!" and the gossip starts.

Here's an example...


Smitty has his little throw down on the field with Talib.  Then the interview. Talk of the NFL! Front page of the nfl.com site. Big talking point all over ESPN, FOX Sports, NFLN...

Smitty piece airs about him donating his shoes after each game, AND to add to it, piece airs about Smitty washing feet for Samaritans Feet. MAYBE a mention in passing/going to commercial to finalize a small Panthers blurb on one of the above named sports stations.

The negative stories far and away over shadow the good. Business wise, that's bad. (Mkay?)

Now, Smitty being gone sucks. but its over now. he's on a new team. Moving on... was the OP's post needed? Not for a lot of people. But, seeing as there are still lil infighting posts within the fan base... It's obvious that some can't even take the idea of the OP's post in stride and be like "Hmmm could be".


Oh well... here's to the future, of Smitty's career, and the Panthers Franchise. I'm on board with both of them.

Posted by Alverez on 21 March 2014 - 01:24 PM

Rofl!!!some people will not be happy ever. But I hope this calms the major masses a lil. I have been avoiding talking to a lot of fellow panthers fans due to the "OMG! We are gonna suck for 20 more years" mentality.

#2682871 Steve getting cut tuesday, had dinner with JR

I know it was a generalization which is why I commented on it. You are still generalizing.Your only specific is the new era and I think you are infatuated with the idea. you may get your heart broke.I'm calling it now , most fans will regret it if this does happen. Even those who were for it initially.new era doesn't mean better. Change for change sake.


The team is on an upward swing.

New GM, New (mentality) coach, Young, hungry, stud leaders on Defense and Offense in Luke and Cam.

I have no reason to think this new era of panthers football shouldn't be looked at in a positive light.


Sure there is a risk that losing Steve and picking up some younger player(s) that aren't up to his level (yet) this season could make people rethink the whole thing. But that's what building for the future is all about. Younger guys grow and learn.


Having Ricky Proehl here to help those young guys isn't to shabby in my eyes either.

Fix the Oline... keep the running game productive... get some WR's to fill out the team... and let'm loose.

Anywho, change is coming, no matter how. It's coming.

Posted by Alverez on 11 March 2014 - 02:24 AM

the Pats pick up the players that other teams think are done and they show that they still have the gas in the tank.


For a season or two at minimum money.


This is a money issue if nothing else. Smith can still play. but not as what we are used to him being as fans... and not to the level we need for this young in transition team.


If the Pats pick him up and he is used in the slot at Vet min, to chase numbers... that's cool. And I'll support him and watch him. But, that's not what he's currently getting paid here... and from what I gather, Steve wasn't going to go for a pay cut. So.... what's a GM to do?

Remember all the "why are we holding on to guys that are not producing what they used to and still getting paid as such" comments about Dwill and Stew? Well, those are money issues from Hurney that can't be just dropped at this very moment. This is a manageable money issue with Smitty who as of now fits that comment now.

It's business. it sucks for fans. But, its for the betterment of the team in the near future me thinks.


Maybe I'm just putting a positive spin on it or something... who knows. But, I'm not going to look at Gman and think he'd just buried the team cuz of this move.  but maybe more like broken ground for the new era.

I love Smitty. I wish this wasn't happening... but, ya know what? A lot of ppl wonder how the Pats are so competitive.... they don't play favorites (minus maybe Brady)


Am I happy about this situation? Nope. Do I think it's all on Gman? Nope. Is it all on Smitty? Nope.

It's the situation.

Smitty will do what's needed for himself. either to go to another team to get paid and chance numbers as he's said he's doing now. or retire.

Gman is taking control and taking the needed steps to make this team good for years to come. That's his job. What he was brought in to do.


Business sucks sometimes. But as a fan of the Team... you have to know this could very possibly be the last "string" to be let go of to let the new Panthers era begin fresh and hungry.

Keep Pounding and Go Panthers!
