#2849918 Madden 15 Features Cam Newton in "The Gauntlet"

I don't own a smart phone but I would buy a Cam Newton ringtone if they made one.




#2849899 Kid sees Cam on Plane... writes him a note

And I spoke to someone that is famous but not in the sports world. They say they try to blend in as much as possible in public places (good luck Cam). Because If you stop and sign autographs or take pictures your draw attention and people start to recognize you and before you know it you are surrounded.

Good for the kid. It's really tough for Cam to be perfect to everyone he meets. He probably meets hundreds or even thousands a week. But for every one of those people it's something they will never forget.

 

It's always a struggle when I see athletes. On the one hand I want to go up, shake their hand, tell em how much I enjoy their work. But they can't stop and talk to every person in Charlotte so I usually keep walking.




#2846412 D.Williams...props to a good guy...on and off the field

I don't understand why some of you are so passionate to accuse a man you never met. You have no idea whom he is or what state of mind he is in. Sure, It's possible the man is a loon that likes being thanked and getting free stuff. But it's one possibility of thousands. Give the man the benefit of the doubt.




#2842326 Where are the action movies?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 07 July 2014 - 07:12 PM

Hollywood has gotten so artsy you don't see as many great action movies. Sure there are action movies, but they don't get the big names and funding. I saw Battleship on HBO, it was ok. Not great but ok. 

 

What you end up with is all the old farts from the golden age of action movies doing B movies like The Expendables and Red.

 

I'd just love some new ideas. No remakes, no comic books. Get me something fresh.

I thought it was funny. Pretty accurate too.

#2840686 I was there when...

Posted by KendrickPanther on 05 July 2014 - 02:54 PM

I was at that game in Atlanta! Riot! I was sitting in a sea of red and making every falcant fan wish they had of bought my seat just to keep a Panthers fan out of it.

One of my fondest memories is gathering behind the Panthers bench in the 4th quarter. No Falcons fans in sight.

I was there for Dwayne Jarret's only career touchdown.




#2838747 Can somebody cheer me up?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 03 July 2014 - 12:46 AM

4 years is a long time. And 4 years is the calendar US Soccer fans live on. In 4 years Dempsey, Jermaine Jones, Beasley, and Howard will be old men. Besler, Gonzalez, and Fabian will be 29 or 30.

 

New names will rise, high hopes for others will crumble. Six 2010 players made the 2014 roster. That's it. Stuart Holden was supposed to be a big star, imagine him playing in front of Jones and Bradley, but life is cruel.




#2838740 Julian Green

Posted by KendrickPanther on 03 July 2014 - 12:31 AM

Don't bring Byron Bell into my Julian Green thread. Athletically speaking they could not be more different.

 

I wanted to see Green in this World Cup because young men floundering on European benches thrive at the World Cup. They have the talent, knowledge, and confidence to take on the best. If you are 27 floundering on the bench, that is very different than being 19. 

 

Julian Green is at Bayern because they see his talent. If he applies himself he will have more football in his head than any MLS raised player. We haven't considered his skill or athletic ability. It's like comparing a student from a Private School to a student from a low income area. If you play the % the guy with better training is going to pan out more often. 

 

Even if Julian doesn't make an impact at Bayern, a squad that buys players just to keep them away from rivals, maybe he moves on and has a solid career elsewhere. Tim Howard didn't stick at Manchester United, he's still a damned good player.

 

This guy is a winger that can't get off the Bayern bench either.

But at the end of the day, he could flame out in a year or be better than Messi heading into the next world cup. Even if he is great, he could break his ankle and miss the World Cup. I didn't make this thread about the future.

 

I wanted to see him right now. We got 15 minutes and I wish we had gotten more.

No he's right, it was a pretty thorough domination. Scorelines never tell the entire story in Soccer. Most non American news outlets credit Howard with 15 saves.

 

It's hard to say "well fix the D and you're good" in 4 years a bunch of guys will be out of the picture and new ones will take their place.




#2837561 MLS/NFL draft

Posted by KendrickPanther on 02 July 2014 - 12:54 AM

If you want to make this thread based soley on physical size and speed, ok. But I would choose kickers over most of the guys in the league If I had to play a game of Soccer. It takes a lot of skill and tactical knowledge. You can't just throw an athlete out there and see what happens.

 

Even if you want to say every NFL player started playing Soccer at age 7. Some of them still wouldn't have the traits to become great players.

 

But in a purely body type fantasy scenario. Steve Smith would have made a world class winger. Not just for his speed, but his quick feet, coordination, body control, and stop/start ability.

 

Thomas Davis would make a great center back in my opinion. Luke maybe a defensive midfielder. Those are the only two that stand out to me. The thing about Soccer is you can't be running around with all those muscles. They will weigh you down. You need to be lean and fit for long distances. Not twitch speed with 30 second breaks.




#2837274 USA vs. Belgium

I have to say when Lukaku came into the game I had a sinking feeling in my gut. He was the perfect players to abuse our stretched thin defense.
