When the Red Sox bandwagon was huge from '04-'09 I hated them. Then they slowly disappeared from '10-'12 and I was glad. Some returned this year but not nearly to the same numbers. They were really flippin' annoying and made the die hards among us look bad. After all out fanbase had been through I did not think these "pink-hatters" deserved to enjoy it with us.
The situation with the Panthers is a little different though. The Sox had been around for over a hundred years and had a very strong and passionate legion of fans even without the pink hats. The Panthers are not in the same situtation. After only a mere eighteen seasons, only four of which have been winning seasons (and never back-to-back), this is a fanbase that has never been fully built. It takes some time to convert people that have been fans of another team their entire lives. The way this team is built for the long haul, we might finally have a group of guys that can do it.
Can someone post what Cris Carter said? I gotta go. Video or audio or just a wrap up, it don't matter.
Cliff notes: basically said that due to the route Gronk was running and how it was taking hime away from the ball that the ball was uncatchable. He said Gronk should have done a better job acting at that in the same situation, Carter would have made sure he fell down. Also said that Gronk should have made an effort to get back to the ball. On Brady he said that because he did not step into the throw the ball was short and led to the ball being uncatchable. He said not only was it the right call, but it was not even a question.
Yes. I completely understood why Philly made the trade for Nerlens and doesn't plan to play him this year… I though Charlotte would take Nerlens, suck and then next year have 2 young studs in Nerlens and Wiggins, Parker, or Randle.
That is one of the main perks I saw to drafting him. Get your stud, then get another.
