#2656727 Typical Jerry Richardson

Posted by KendrickPanther on 18 February 2014 - 12:19 PM

I was assuming that the $21 would be in silver section but I'm guessing you are in like 110-113 or a similar seat?

 

Silver tickets negotiate long term set prices I believe. I don't know all the details but Jerry cannot raise the prices on them until their contract expires.




#2656720 Am I THAT much of a sucker if I buy a new car?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 18 February 2014 - 12:15 PM

As the fuzz said the best thing to do is pay cash. I actually did this upon returning to the states and literally wrote a check for $80k for two used Acuras. The financing guy was incredulous that I wouldn't choose the financing option.Wanted to punch him in the face.

 

No I am not madhatter. I had been saving for 6 years in a place where I couldn't really buy a car.

 

But the monthly payment can be paralyzing if your situation changes. I'm in awe at friends of mine in financial stress but they have two 60 month car payments at $1000 total. Back in the day loans were like 4-6%

 

But these days if you have the cash flow it isn't financial suicide to take any loan out at 2.5% which is the current car loan rate

 

Yeah I always save and let the banks pay ME interest then pay cash. It requires a level of discipline most people are incapable of but it's the best way to stay out of trouble.




#2656696 Complete Panthers Combine Preview

Posted by KendrickPanther on 18 February 2014 - 12:05 PM

I just want to take every chance to remind people this is Dave Gettleman's second combine as GM ever. You have to say 2013 was a smashing success. We hit on 3 defensive players and picked up some others via undrafted free agency. We also scouted Travis Bond and Tavarres King and signed them later in the season. Some of our more radical Panther fans are convinced we will never draft an offensive player. This is only our second draft under a new regime and I can't wait to see how it pans out.




#2650295 2014 strength of schedule.

Posted by KendrickPanther on 11 February 2014 - 01:06 PM

Strength of schedule is the most useless piece of information produced every off season. You could learn more from Cam telling a baby to be quiet on youtube. Every single season is hard, the biggest factor in SoS is how many times you beat teams in your own division (5 for us).

I read that as cock and thought good for you man.

 

My first thought was Flavor Flave.




#2649407 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by KendrickPanther on 10 February 2014 - 06:45 PM

I made it very clear I was drawing a parallel between the human rights issues faced by black men in sports and those faced by gay men in sports. This guy shot holes into my analogy by pointing out all the minutia in context. Don't try to talk to that guy, he is incapable of forming a coherent argument.




#2649145 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by KendrickPanther on 10 February 2014 - 03:59 PM

If my Son's favorite player was Michael Sam and I could find his jersey at an affordable price, yes I  would buy it for him. Especially if my son was Gay. Gay people deserve idols too. They deserve to see a future for themselves.

 

I've heard a ton of people try to compare accepting a gay athlete to accepting a criminal or drug addict. It's not fair to the Gay man to be shed in that light. It doesn't fully cover the feeling of his teammates either.

 

This is a big story. Jackie Robinson was a big story. Nelson Mandela was a big story. And while those aren't perfect analogies there is a clear parallel to human rights. Sports has always played a role in human rights and politics.

 

For it to be a non-story in the future, it has to be a story now. Nobody has to like it, but we do need to accept it.

 

You guys worried about Gay men looking at you in the shower need to get a clue. Your wives don't even want to look at you in the shower.




#2648789 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by KendrickPanther on 10 February 2014 - 10:10 AM

What does this have to do with the way others treat him as the poster you were responding to was talking about?

 

Voting in laws that restrict people from marriage and the benefits that come with it is far worse than giving someone an ugly look at the Cracker Barrel, or any "treatment". Being polite to someone then voting against their rights is hardly what I call tolerant.




#2648690 Michael Sam, draft prospect, admits he's gay

Posted by KendrickPanther on 10 February 2014 - 07:13 AM

Oh jesus christ. Why cant this poo just go away. First openly gay player, first black coach, soon we'll have first Asian kicker....

What year is it? We dont need 14 hours of coverage where Katie Curic breaks down what this means on a larger scale, for our future, blah blah blah. Hes gay. I work with a gay guy. I went to school with guy dudes. Im sure many people here do as well. Do you guys throw rocks at him? Do you burn crosses into his lawn? Oh.... You dont? You mean 99% of americans treat gays/blacks/ hispanics/ and everyone else exactly the same and like respectable adults? Great. Can we move on please?

Why must our entire universe revolve around what the dumb redneck hicks livin in run-down trailer parks who carry signs saying "God Hates Fags" say? Those guys are very few and far between and no one gives a fug about them. No one of any importance really cares about sexual orientation or race. Its fugging 2014.

 

I don't know where you got your 99% figure but here in North Carolina the majority voted gay marriage illegal, my county voted 80% anti gay.




#2638806 Ray Guy Finally Makes It Into HOF

Posted by KendrickPanther on 01 February 2014 - 10:38 PM

I should have said this in the first post: Congrats to Ray Guy. Punters, Kickers, and Long Snappers play football too. They have an incredible skill that is valued in the NFL and if they separate themselves as the best they should be in the Hall Of Fame. If you don't consider Kickers football players then take kicking out of football.




#2638797 Ray Guy Finally Makes It Into HOF

Posted by KendrickPanther on 01 February 2014 - 10:31 PM

The problem with Hall of Fame voting is who votes. It should be players and coaches in my opinion. Strahan plays in a big market, you see him on TV all the time, he's first ballot because he's relevant. Other guys have amazing careers and lives and wait because of name recognition or their behavior towards the media.




#2638778 Rivera Wins Coach of the Year

Posted by KendrickPanther on 01 February 2014 - 10:10 PM

Congrats to Coach Ron. He deserved it. He did something no NFL coach does, he changed his stripes.




#2638372 Cam owns Jimmy Graham plus more SB media appearances

Posted by KendrickPanther on 01 February 2014 - 05:28 PM

Cam is a funny guy like sometimes people don't catch some of the things he says.




#2637993 Cameron Jerrell Newton

Posted by KendrickPanther on 01 February 2014 - 08:30 AM

These numbers mean nothing to me. Numbers are for kids. Cam is a great talent that has exceeded expectations. Every QB comes into the league under unique circumstances. Their teammates and coaches are unique. Some guys deal with health issues despite performing well. The OP is cherry picking statistics to make a point.

 

I'm really not disputing that Cam has had success. I just think statistics can not quantify it. Steve Smith is at the end of his career and his numbers do not match his performance. Guys like Elway played under different rules. Nowadays a blow to the head is a penalty and a fine. Back when Kerry Collins was a young guy people were headhunting him in preseason games.




#2637658 George Zimmerman to fight....The Game!?

Posted by KendrickPanther on 31 January 2014 - 08:48 PM

Yeah, that means nothing. Street gang fights are no different than backyard brawls between teenagers. Two idiots running their mouth, shoving, and charging after each other and slinging haymakers recklessly. And you know what happens when you do that against a trained martial arts fighter? They break your arm or you wake up in the 4th grade.

It has nothing to do with the game being "tough." He doesn't have the skills or knowledge to take on a skilled and trained fighter. If the past reports are accurate and Zimmerman truly is a former boxer and martial arts student, he'd most likely make the game look like a complete fool.

Go watch some early 90s UFC. Middle aged, average build guys like Zimmerman who were trained martial arts guys beat the poo out of the strong, muscular "tough" guys.

 

You make Zimmerman sounds like Chuck Norris. If that is the case how did a 15 year old boy beat him to the point where he feared for his life. I probably don't want to go there.
