#2965072 6 years, $150,250,000, $54,000,000 guaranteed, Projected contract f...

Posted by O-Ther on 19 September 2014 - 06:20 PM

Here's some numbers before the cliff-jumping begins

 

$19 million=dead money we have on the books this year for players no longer on the team

$13 million=Hardy's contract, pretty sure he's not gonna be back next year

-$4 million we'll still be on the hook for Smitty's contract in 2015

 

so $28 million will be freed up next year

 

add that Cam's already scheduled to make $14 million in 2015, and you realize that Gettleman >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Hurney

 

 

Edit: Other player's salaries will go up in 2015, so they will chew into that $28 million, too, so a couple more re-negotiations or cuts will prolly need to be made, but it's now realistic to see that we can keep both Cam and Luke without killing the salary cap and crippling the roster.

only joking kind sir, more or less was poking fun at the op. Sick of seeing "We should go after *insert reciever here* ".

 

no worries! we're all panther fans here. Anybody smart enough to cheer for the same team as me deserves my respect. Save the hate for falcon, saint, and buc fans.




#2964271 Our expansion brethren

Posted by O-Ther on 19 September 2014 - 09:19 AM

Oh, no.  Make no mistake the Steeler fans will be out in force.  But it will be because Panther fans who otherwise would have attended the game, sold their tickets to the mayonnaise and curd eating lard asses from the squeel city at a 400% profit. 

 

Damn, was hoping more Charlotteans had a sense of integrity and took pride in having an NFL team in their city. It's something that most cities don't have, like mine (Orlando) and even Los Angeles.

 

Think about that. Charlotte has something the 2nd biggest city in the USA doesn't, and a lot of it's citizens are doing this ticket-selling to get their money back and essentially go for free. Seems smart, right? But then it involves no sacrifice. Those tickets aren't cherished and valued. They don't mean anything anymore, it's just a place to go on a Sunday afternoon. If the Panthers win, hey great. If they lose, oh well at least I essentially got in for free.

 

No emotional investment in the team. Have I accurately described the wine and cheesers you guys complain about?

Dealing with the press: Advantage=Marty Hurney (since, you know, he used to be a member of said press)

 

Every other facet of being a GM: Advantage=Dave Gettleman

Perhaps a little more kindness and less sarcasm would be appropriate towards another Panther fan who is not as knowledgeable as yourselves? Helping Cam2Benji become a better Panther fan seems better than minimizing and ridiculing. After all, none of you were born with that knowledge, so pass it along. Otherwise they'll learn it on the streets and end up a Foulc*nt or (shudder) a Taints fan.

Explain how we can fit his 12million 432 thousand dollar salary into our salary cap that only has 7 million 620 thousand dollars of room. Do that and I'll be your huckleberry.

Gettleman was a member of the Giants organization when Sept. 11 happened. He's dealt with things far worse than this. He'll be fine.

 

Game planning is not his responsibility. That's done by Shula and McDermott. That's their job to do, and they get paid well to do it. Gettleman's not going to turn them away if they come asking about players on other teams or if he's seen offensive or defensive trends as he's watching film to evaluate players. But game planning is not his job. And Rivera has the final say in what the game plan will be, not Gettleman.

 

I'm glad to see he had a hard time at the podium. That means it hurt him. And it would only hurt if he cared about both Hardy and the team. If it was just Hardy he cared about, he'd be his agent. If he just cared about the team, he'd have been calm and look relieved at the podium that this was over. But he looked wounded that he had to this, and that shows he cares. Caring earns respect, and because he cares about the team and it's players like that, I'm sure the players respect him even more. I know I do.




#2963860 Our win against the Bucs is looking less impressive - ATL/TB watch thread

Posted by O-Ther on 18 September 2014 - 10:47 PM

Tickets should be cheap for the Bucs game when Baltimore comes to town. Think I'll get one and try to get Smitty's autograph.

Maybe they were thinking since it's a night game, white is easier to see?

 

Agree it will look like we're surrendering......

#2962774 Don't take the pink dreads for granted, Huddle. Others aren't.

Wasn't it D-Will that got the NFL to start wearing pink in October? Seem to remember he was the first player to do it and he lobbied the league hard for it. That story needs to get back out there.

Beason appreciated Ma'ake keeping those lineman off him, just like Luke and Star now.




#2959337 Adrian Peterson deactivated AGAIN indefinitely

Posted by O-Ther on 17 September 2014 - 01:37 AM

Sounds like this happened to A.P. because of Radisson removing their corporate sponsorship and the Minnesota state governor calling for his suspension, too.

Losing corporate $$$ and the threat of government involving themselves trumps Adrian's right to remain innocent until found guilty in a court of law.

 

Not fair to A.P., but if life was fair, we'd all be rich and look like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

 

P.S. edited to add that Castrol also ended it's sponsorship over A.P., and 4 other companies expressed their concern to the league about him. They are Anheuser-Busch, McDonald's, Visa, and Campbell's. Haven't pulled their sponsorships yet. Yet.

 

Life lesson in there. We can scream and shout about right and wrong, innocent or guilty, but public opinion is what really matters now. Public opinion and fear of losing customers drives those sponsorships and, yes, the NFL's golden goose, the TV deals. If the NFL fears too much $$$ will be lost, Hardy will get the same treatment, even if it violates the collective bargaining agreement. Better to be sued by Hardy than be radioactive in the public's, corporate sponsor's, and government's eyes.

 

Tough choice for Hardy now, Does he go along with being inactive and found guilty by a judge and be seen as guilty in the eyes of the public, risking his next contract because, frankly, what team would want the P.R. nightmare? Or does he make a statement defending himself that will doubtless be admissible as evidence in his trial, risking his freedom?

 

Drafting a DE in the 2nd round doesn't look like a wasted pick now.
