#3302458 Panthers claim OT Jonathan Martin

Posted by Delhommey on Yesterday, 03:58 PM

This is like picking an unused scratch-off lottery ticket off the ground. Either you win free money or it's worthless and you toss it in the trash.

 

How in the hell can anyone not like it?




#3296149 Mr. Richardson did flex muscles regarding Hardy

Posted by Delhommey on 23 March 2015 - 04:25 PM

Public Perception is very important, maybe the most important thing. After making $$$ that is.

 

Like when the public perception is you're cheap. So you hand out huge contracts to the core of a team that went 2-14.

Just a reminder that a lot of Hurney's mistakes weren't Hurney's.


#3295629 FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers

Posted by Delhommey on 23 March 2015 - 12:04 PM

 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change.

 

This may put several Republican governors who maintain that the Earth isn't warming due to human activities, or prefer to take no action, in a political bind. Their position may block their states' access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. In the last five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion a year in grants to states and territories for taking steps to mitigate the effects of disasters.

 

"If a state has a climate denier governor that doesn't want to accept a plan, that would risk mitigation work not getting done because of politics," said Becky Hammer, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council's water program. "The governor would be increasing the risk to citizens in that state" because of his climate beliefs.

The policy doesn't affect federal money for relief after a hurricane, flood, or other disaster.

#3295153 Panthers Predraft Visits/Meetings and What We Can Foolishly Read From Them

Posted by Delhommey on 22 March 2015 - 10:35 PM

The good thing about the current administration, is you can kinda make a good natured guess about what's going on based on the evidence at hand. Not too many smokescreens with Riverboat and Nippleshorts.

Looking at the list of meetings and workouts, I think we can make a few awkward swipes as to what the Panthers plan to do in 5 weeks:

1. The front office wants to protect Cam and give him weapons: The majority of visits so far? OT, RB, and WR.

Like it or not, RB remains a serious position of need. Stewart is great when healthy, but any GM betting the house on JStew's health is likely going to be looking for places to live soon. Also, his contract.

2. Ginn is a short term answer: Lockett, Montgomery, and Crowder are all WR's, but they're also the top returners available. I think it's almost guaranteed we will pick a KR/PR in the later rounds.

It's pretty clear we fans weren't the only ones pawing at the bottle when Bersin went back to field punts.

3. Gman will grab a dlineman or two: If a nice shiny pass rusher is available, Dave won't think twice. Who's to argue with a plan that brought NY 2 rings? Also, we're looking for long term replacements for Cole and Edwards.

4. Tackle will probably be covered in the second round or later: Most of the OTs being brought in are second tier or less. Compare that with RB, WR, CB, and LB where we're bringing in top tier prospects that could easily go much higher than our pick. This points to us waiting a bit for an OT as Dave and Co probably don't see a good amount of first round value.

5. We're probably getting a fast LB and/or CB: they want to speed up the D and ST's, so why not do it all in one fell swoop? Waynes, Darby, and Kendricks are all speed merchants and would improve ST coverage as well as defensive depth.

Obviously anything can happen on draft day, and at 25 you have to wait to see what falls to you. Still, I think the visits along with Gettleman and Rivera's press conferences give us a decent glimpse of what they hope to accomplish.

Needs to go to the Eagles to complete their All-OU team.

I will not stand for this baseless claim Rebulicans run racist campaigns.

I see him going to the Colts. Good young offense and a chance for revenge twice a year.

#3262092 a thread where we talk about people who hate experts/professionals

Posted by Delhommey on 04 March 2015 - 05:04 AM



I'm an "expert" at work and this is very true how people treat us.

They want you to do magic, and when you can't, they take it personally.


#3254066 Why is white face acceptable?

Posted by Delhommey on 25 February 2015 - 01:17 PM

Honestly most people aren't really offended by someone wearing black face. They just know you're a racist moron.

#3247823 Wow even WalMart is more in touch with reality than the RNC

Posted by Delhommey on 20 February 2015 - 02:58 PM

A 10% rise in minimum wage has historically caused prices to rise about 0.1% to 0.2 %. Hardly the devastational inflation certain people on here are making animal noises about.
