Thank God today turned out the way it did. Regardless of the differing circumstances surrounding the two car incidents, today would have been the worst day in Charlotte sports franchise history if things would have went a little left or a little right.
I remember the day Bobby died. He was loved by our community and it hurt like hell then and it hurt like hell the night they re-hung his jersey at the cable box.
This picture alone and the thought of what might have been should make us appreciate how lucky we are, whether it was Cam or Andrew Norwell. How sad would this lone picture be if the unspeakable would have happened?
His truck goes over the bridge and we are front page news/lead story for the next week. After that...the only thing we have is each other.
Again, you guys joking about turnovers/rollovers might want to step back and be thankful that Cam or for that matter nobody in your life didn't pass today.
We got lucky today as a team and as a "family".
Although none of us are promised tomorrow, I will sleep well that Cam was spared today, even if he never plays another down of NFL football (I know he will you morons, but this could have been worse).
Kiss your Mom, hug your Dad, punch your brother, nuggie your sister, love your wife, antagonize your children....if you are above ground today....give thanks.
Without being morbid or calling for someone's death, who would you guys want as a new owner? Felix Sabates, according to what is published, is only worth $200 million, so he may not have enough to buy the team when the times comes around. Plus, his commercials with Rivera may indicate he is not as sharp as he once was when he was younger when it comes to making sound decisions.
Bruton Smith...I'll just stop here.
My vote is Mark Cuban. He is worth $2.7 billion, knows how to win (he does have a Championship trophy), will probably hold weekly press conferences whether we want them or not, stay awake at the games and I have no doubt he would tell Roger G where to stick it when necessary. He is relatively young and I hear he hates Harris Teeter.
Like winning the NFCS, somebody will HAVE to buy this team eventually. Might as well be the polar opposite of Mr. Richardson.
