#2970722 Official Panthers - Steelers Gameday Thread

Posted by pantherj on Yesterday, 10:19 PM

Take Cam out. I feel sorry for DA if he has to go in, but he's going to have to take one for the team. We nearly lost Cam for the season.

Well now it's on the defense to stop the run. Pitt has had their way with our d-line so far, but we have the talent to turn this around. Front 7 go to work.

#2963126 The Greg Hardy thread....for everything Hardy related

Posted by pantherj on 18 September 2014 - 04:56 PM

How I see this


There are a bunch of things that are confusing people, making this more complex than it really is.  First of all, Hardy is not exactly as innocent as many of you think, if you read the law.  Assault is not necessarily hitting a person, it is the intentional, realistic threat of harm one person uses against another.   Since I do not pretend to know the details, nor should any of you, I can say that, from what I have heard about the case, there was a threat of harm.  If he had access to a collection of assault weapons, for example, and intimidated her in any way with them, then he is guilty of assault.  If he hit her, then he is guilty of battery.


The other thing that confuses people is the fact that they think the NFL has to have a proven violation of the law to discipline a player.  Not so.  If Hardy's conduct was in any way damaging to the reputation of the Panthers and the league, either party can discipline him. These players are backed by a union headed by lawyers-it happens all the time.  However, the NFL has been relatively soft in terms of discipline because it usually leads to a big ordeal with the union lawyers, so they have been passive.  Now, however, the public outcry is so strong, it outweighs the temper tantrums of the players' union, so we are where we are.  So Hardy's punishment is not necessarily determined by his innocence or guilt in a court of law, but by the manner in which his voluntary actions are viewed in terms of his contract and the agreement between the NFL and the Players' Union. Guessing that the threats from major sponsors to clean this up, coinciding with the statements of political leaders and major media outlets, it is no longer an internal matter. 


This is how I understand this.  I have taught education law to perspective principals, and was in the dark about the difference between assault and battery.  I am not a lawyer and am learning as we go as everyone else. 


Hardy makes $770k per week, so I don't imagine his team of lawyers will have any difficulty getting him off vs. some low-paid district attorney.  


That's what's so odd about this whole mess. Why not suspend him now and get this over with? Because they're waiting to determine how severely they're going to punish him based on the trial? So let's say Hardy misses the rest of the season due to the trial not ending until after the season has finished. He's found innocent. The NFL decides to suspend him for 6 games for damaging the leagues reputation. For our team, it would be much better to suspend him now, and maybe we can get him back. Wait to suspend him, and we'll never see him in a Panther uniform again.

So did Detroit.

We have the best defense in the NFL. The Steelers have the slowest defense in the NFL, and their offense is not explosive at all. You don't need a crystal ball to see what's going to happen. We're gonna kill them.

#2956593 Watching the Colts Eagles game

Posted by pantherj on 15 September 2014 - 10:25 PM

Well, if that's the case then it doesn't need to be said, cause all QB's sail or make bad passes. It's part of the game.


The only time it's an issue, is when a receiver is wide open, and/or the QB's has time or little pressure, and still misses the receiver bad.

Of course some of us Panther fans are sensitive to this. Because many fans and non fans try to use this against Cam, when we see bad, average and good NFL QB's do the same thing every week. It's part of the game. But I got you.


I'm a fan of Cam Newton. I'm thrilled to have him as our QB. He's the best thing that ever happened to the Carolina Panthers. All QBs are a work in progress, and they constantly work to eliminate mistakes and improve their game. 


I don't like it when Cam takes more blame than is due. He's a very good QB, and he'll be with us for the rest of his career imo, and bring us a SB.

The more NFC losses the better. McCoy is outstanding, but overall the Eagles offense is a lot spreading out and running all over the place, but not much to show for it.

#2956288 Peter King busted

Posted by pantherj on 15 September 2014 - 08:54 PM

Oh Peter you fat potato headed ass. Why hasn't the court punished Hardy? Because he is entitled to a trial by jury to decide his fate. He could be found guilty, or innocent by a jury of his peers. An elected judge with a dog in the fight is not his peer. It would be political suicide for Judge Tin to find Hardy innocent given the giant spotlight on the case. That's why we in this backward state allow for a jury trial.


It's possible that Hardy will be found innocent of the charges. What will King, who is only interested in drawing attention to his bullshit opinion pieces, do when is Hardy is found innocent? Write another piece about how the Panthers were wrong for punishing Hardy before his trial? Nope. That fat ass will sweep his bullshit opinion under the bottom of his muumuu with all the other poo he's been wrong about over his awful career.

#2944977 So apparently Detroit media is turning "Donkey Kong Suh" into a racia...

Posted by pantherj on 12 September 2014 - 06:42 AM

Cam nicknames Suh Donkey Kong, and no one seems to think much of it. Then the great prostitute that is sports media has an idea.


"Can we spin this into a racial issue? Make it racist?"


"But Cam's black and I don't think he intended it that way. No one really does."


"Yes but I'm a prostitute for money and attention, and I think can spin this and mislead some of the public into believing this is a racial problem. After all I'm p.o.s prostitute who doesn't care one iota about honesty or credibility. I'm in sports media after all. We have no standards. So I can squeeze a b.s story out of this for at least a week, and stir the pot. I can see the attention and money now, mmmmm $$$$$ racist mmmm monkey black $$$$$$ I'm a prostitute liar mmmm."


"Ok do it we need a story"


"Yes sir!"







#2942231 Going after hardy now is basically a witch hunt

Posted by pantherj on 10 September 2014 - 08:23 PM

I'm still waiting for a mob full of reactionary loons to go storming down Mint Street looking for Hardy. Let the court system decide his fate and be patient. If he's found guilty, then he will face personal and professional punishment. Until then, stop acting like fools. That includes the media, and anyone else getting caught up in emotional hoopla and nonsense.

what makes you think the Bucs will be so bad? 


Turns out the Bucs are so bad. It really starts with the fact that McCown blows.
