In Topic: Shawn Oakman does 40 inch box jump holding 70 pound dumbbells

I'm just gonna assume that these huddle tailgates are filled with prime athletic specimens to be crapping on a man doing something that I would put money no more than a  handful of members here could do.

 

Ohh...he swung his arms. Ohh, it helped him keep balance. Yes and Yes. Guess what else? All of that took a great deal of strength and control to do. Most people cant even walk up a ladder without holding on to the side, yet find fault with this guy?

 

GTFO


In Topic: How many true, lifelong Panthers fans are actually out there?

14 May 2015 - 10:54 AM

I didnt even care about the NFL until we got a local team. I was 17 going on 18 at that time, and those were the days where boys will be boys.

 

That was back when "Gin n Juice" was still a hit. I wouldnt call myself a "true" Panthers fan as i dont even live in the US anymore, cant attend games,never been to a huddle cookout...etc. However, what I can say is that the Panthers are the only NFL team I care about, the only games I watch, and the only team that means anything to me.


In Topic: Atlanta Falcan'ts were paid $1 million to 'honor' the military

You know the individual teams have always been taxed, right?

 

Just checking.

 

And you do know, that any NFL owner is sitting on tons of money, so putting some out a measly 1 million (over three years) to our troops is really no big deal (and a tax write off)...right?

 

Just checking.

So a (until now) tax exempt industry that has been falling over the 100's of millions it has made tax free, hands out a measly 1 million over 3 years to a rival team, and its an issue?

 

Who cares! They are handing out money not to teams,but to our troops through proxy. When it comes to our soldiers, I dont give a damn about rivalry.


In Topic: A little trouble in paradise (Seattle)? RW contract talks

Most of the folks here defending Cam are just pointing out why he hasnt been as successful as Wilson and want to justify it.  As you noted they dont understand the business side of it and those excuses will be made by his agent but will carry little weight.  I think this year will go a long way to determining what happens with Cam and both sides know it.  I bet Gettleman is hoping that Cam has a fantastic year so when he does get the big bucks both sides will feel they have their guy for the next 6 or 7 years. But as you note, right now Cam would be top getting top 10 money not top 1 or 2 based on his results. 

 

Yeah, I understand that. My point is though...that our defense is pretty badass to say the least. And while we havent had a wonderful running game and dealt with injuries and less that stellar talent on the o-line, we are all hoping all of that turns around this year.

 

So then lets take some of these peoples argument and turn it around. Lets imagine we do win the superbowl this year. Can we justify paying cam LESS for the simple fact that a badass defense got us there? Our defense is the main reason we have been as competitive as we have been the last 2 seasons...so I would put forth that as great as Cam is and all the plays that he has made here in there, it was our DEFENSE that kept us in games and competitive as it were. Can any QB say they won a ring without the help of the team overall (which is basically what some are saying Wilson is lacking...poor guy played on a good team so poo on him)
