#2863400 Kug to have back surgery Aug 8th, done for year

Posted by KendrickPanther on Today, 02:09 PM

The one person in particular is thrilled about these developments. Kugbillas training bike. Bike just went from Kugbilla to J Stew. 




#2862009 This is actually a cool idea

Posted by KendrickPanther on Yesterday, 01:39 PM

This is cool but a massive grind. I'm sure you will need to hold tickets for 20+ years to get a seat in the box, assuming they continue the policy. If you are in your 60s right now, you will probably never accumulate enough points. All of these perks come at little or no cost to the team so it's smart.

 

I think they could do better and get the fans more excited about it. How about a false start counter. 5 false starts equals 50% off beer at the next home game. If that's too much of an economic burden for the team. Then make 50% off before kickoff to get people in the building on time. Have different perks on every drive for a single false start.

 

Hell, here in Carolina we could follow every false start with the Tshirt cannon. I was sitting in the club seats last year and this guy is bragging about dropping 2 grand on tickets. Meanwhile his wife in a cashmere sweater is going nuts for the tshirt cannon. Then the football game resumed and she sat in silence.

Remember last off season when the only player in our secondary worth a damn was Charles Godfrey?




#2860182 Tony Dungy: "I wouldn't have taken him." (Michael Sam)

Posted by KendrickPanther on 21 July 2014 - 05:15 PM

I'm sure Tony had plenty of gays on his teams over the years. He is talking about the distractions. I'm curious if Dungy would want The Golden Calf of Bristol's distractions on his team. That is the closest test I can think of to decipher Dungy's motives.

Remember that movie where the guy sees fat women as super sexy? Maybe its like that.

You guys can be asses sometimes. I hope all your wives get fat.




#2857789 Ashley Fox - Hardy Situation Trumps Others

Posted by KendrickPanther on 19 July 2014 - 03:08 AM

Hardy was charged with assault. Not manslaughter. Ashley Fox is asking for the NFL to ignore the details of the case and throw the book at Hardy to make a statement to society that domestic abuse is unacceptable. Hardy needs to be punished within the confines of the law and the guidelines of the NFL. You do not "make statements" with peoples lives and careers. 

 

This is a real problem in the US right now were we take criminal or civil cases and try to inject social agendas into them. The NFL's disciplinary action should be consistent with what any other first time offenders received for a similar crime. The reason he has been found guilty of assault is it's a very easy charge to argue for the state. Any physical contact, be it a slap or a push, can be construed as assault. 

 

I would be willing to bet assault is one of the most common charges filed against pro athletes. Jon Beason dealt with it. The only reason this makes news is a woman is involved. Call me whatever you like, I see no difference between assaulting a man and assaulting a woman.

#2857437 Did we miss out on a diamond in the rough?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 18 July 2014 - 08:20 PM

We missed out on Josh Gordon. We missed out on Lavon Brazil. We missed out on Vontaz Burfict. We missed out on Alfonzo Dennard. We could do this all day. 

 

We drafted a rough diamond named Brandon Hogan and he never got his act together. We drafted Greg Hardy and it worked out well, until it didn't. It's just a crapshoot really.

Lol good thing you don't keep bleach down there like my mom did.

Isn't Dameyune Craig supposed to have his jersey there from his NFL Europe days?

 

 

That is a great point. The connection never occurred to me.

 

I actually snapped a shot of Ted Ginn's jersey from that display. He was remembered as the first player to score a regular season touchdown in Europe. But in the background you can see Craig's number 2 hanging there.

Why did this happen. We need answers.




#2857071 Panthers Training Camp Tips

Posted by KendrickPanther on 18 July 2014 - 01:46 PM

If someone really cares about getting an autograph they have every right to stand there looking silly with the children. Just don't be a jerk about it. Some parents use their kids for autographs and that is the same thing to me. They just avoid the shame of standing there begging someone younger than them for a second of their time.

 

Cam does not sign for every single person. On any given day there is 2-7 thousand people that would love to have a Cam Newton autograph. Waiting in the prime spots with nothing to do for hours helps your chances but it guarantees you nothing. I would gladly trade a signature to enjoy my day in the sun watching guys fight for their livelihood. Cam did say he prefers to sign for people that are excited, but don't make an ass of yourself.

 

In Gibbs Stadium Zod pointed out the prime Autograph side. This is true but in 2013 they taped off the best seats for "VIPs". There are still many good seats but the supply is much smaller than the demand. You must arrive early.

 

If you send your children into the fray, keep a close eye on them. Don't let them disrespect adults or other children. And don't let them get bullied. People go nuts for Autographs, my 5 year old was excited at first but soon became frightened. It can be a mele like that time Tom Cruise pulled that kid over a fence.

 

Watch your kids with the markers too. My 5 year old drew a line on her Panthers Jersey with a sharpie with all the pushing and shoving. Byron Bell took off his shoes to give to the kids and people started trying to push her out of the way. When she received the shoe she tried to put it on the ground because she is 5. So just keep an eye out for their behavior and safety.

 

Fair warning. Even the most excited kids lose interest during practice. If you are on the hill they will run around in packs like feral animals. Bringing a football or Frisbee to toss around is a great idea if they find some open space.

 

Some of the best days to go are during the rain. It's very relaxing. If you wear under armour type clothes then getting a little wet shouldn't bother you. Just leave the electronics in the car.

 

There are drinks and hot dogs on site. They are fairly low priced and fairly low quality. (relative to sporting events)

 

I would never recommend going to training camp with expectations for an autograph. There are just better ways to get them. Don't be the guy that drives 6 hours for an autograph and holds a grudge when you don't get one. Veterans sign the fewest autographs in my experience. 

 

She got this for being polite and encouraging.

#2856351 Visited the Hall Of Fame. Panthers Represent!

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

Might have to check that place out for myself someday soon... after the Panthers win the SB.

 

That would be the perfect time to go. They had a 26 minute video celebrating the Seahawks win. I chose to skip it.




#2856336 Visited the Hall Of Fame. Panthers Represent!

Posted by KendrickPanther on 18 July 2014 - 12:38 AM

I've always wanted to pay a visit to the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. With our recent success I thought it might be a good time to check it out.
 
 
Let me start by saying I've always had this assumption Ohio was grey and miserable all the time. It was actually quite nice as you can see in the below pictures. There were rolling hills of green trees, blue skies, and a light breeze with temperatures in the low 70s.

We start with Johnny U. Best known for throwing a touchdown pass to Jerry Richardson in the 1959 NFL Championship Game.

As I followed the chronological order of the Hall it was difficult to find Panthers connections as we came into the league just 20 Years ago. One thing did catch my eye. A tribute to one of the greatest defenses of all time. Ron Rivera was a rookie learning the ropes and occasionally pitching in. His tackles were not recorded but he did register a 1/2 sack, interception, and fumble recovery.

As we get into the 90s our Franchise becomes part of history, joining the greatest sports league in the world. This ticket has some meaning to me as the Hall Of Fame Game is the day I became a Panthers fan.

As we go through the 90s and 00s our franchise receives no mentions as we failed to make a lasting impression. Reggie White had several photos and displays but never as a Panther (and rightly so).
 
As we get to the most significant recent moments a relic from Tampa is on display.

Yes, that is the ball Cam unselfishly gave to Katie Brown after breaking the record. The Panthers equipment staff quickly negotiated a trade and the ball now sits in the same room as Johnny Unitas's high tops.

Having finished the main historical section of the museum we head to see the Busts. It's a pretty cool feeling seeing them all as a whole but individually it's pretty unremarkable. The real excitement was watching these guys play.

I have to say Ditka had the best bust. Only the Saints could make this man a loser.

Next we make our way to the "Pro Football Today" Exhibit. Here we find displays of achievement from the past 2 seasons.
 
Luke's uniform from his record breaking performance against the Saints is on display

Also on display are all 2014 First Round Draft Cards. I think this has been circulated before but it's pretty funny.

We finish up in the Hall of Super Bowl Champions. There is no joy in this room for Panther fans. There are some pictures of our 2003 team on a video kiosk but I rather not talk about it.
 
One last memento as we approach the gift store.
X52JGjvs.jpg
 
That pretty much sums up the Hall Of Fame from a Panthers fan perspective. I enjoyed learning about professional football as a whole and took pride in the representation of our organization. I've included several more pictures that I enjoyed.
 
Ever wondered what a Bill Belichek playbook looks like? Here is one from his Super Bowl win over the Bills as a Coordinator for the Giants. Maybe someday we will see his notes from our walk through in 2003.

Jim Brown is honestly the baddest man on the planet. Watching his NFL Films tape is like watching Super Man play Football in High School.

Contrary to popular belief, player safety has been an important issue since the earliest days of football. The rule changes today are not a sign of the "softness" of our society. There was a time when men scoffed at face masks because they were for "wimps". Note the equipment hanging around these players necks. Those are "helmets". Designed to protect the nose from retreating into the brain.

If only I could buy season tickets for 10 times what the Bears were asking for in 1928. I wonder what a Beer cost?
oban0Wf.jpg
 
Marion Motley is one of my favorite players to watch in the old NFL Films shows. A 270 lb Fullback with a mean streak.
qzTG5J3.jpg
 
While Reggie White made a name for himself in Philadelphia and Green Bay. He left and played hist last snaps in Charlotte. He chose to make Charlotte his home until his tragic death in 2004.

This silly drug store toy inspired the name of the greatest day on the American Sports calendar.

And finally we come to Cleveland. As I said before I was shocked at how wonderful the weather was in Ohio. It inspired me to head to Cleveland and see Great Lake Eerie. As I approached the city clouds descended. It was like a cartoon cloud that followed a sad person. The city is filthy and full of abandoned buildings. Every corner has a sketchy bar. The water is dark, the skies are grey. The city is the epitome of misery. I can see why Lebron claims to be from Akron where the sun shines brightly. I'm glad I went just to confirm every story was true and understated.
