Pretty sad that when a question like this is asked, most of the replies are concerned with website cred/invisible rep/pie/neg rep...etc etc. Leads one to believe that many advocate posting not opinions, but rather dribble/gif's and one-liners that they "think" will get them pie and rep.
The site seems fine. Rather than some sort of change to the site, is it possible to arrange some type of givaway/raffle? This is a community now...so how about we represent ourselves to the local civic community in the form of charity.
For example...lets say Zod can use his connections with the team to get some awesome item. For example...a jersey/helmet signed by ALL team members. Then members of the forum can each "donate say...$10.00 to enter the raffle...with the proceeds going to some charity (burned children for example) and will be a donation made not in the name of the team, but of this site itself..with the winner of the awesome prize chosen at random from those who donated.
This seems SO much better than meaningless pie/rep crap...yet benefits the site and all its users by getting us out there as something more than just a bunch of people talking smack and hanging out in the parking lot.
Use the 10th birthday as a stepping stone to something higher~~~
The fact that nearly every reply makes some type of reference to her looks/sex/"id bang her"/typical classless comments clearly demonstrates that even if she were the best kicking prospect out there in regards to ability...the general public would accept her as nothing more than a sex symbol/sideshow attraction.
Pretty sad many here are husbands and fathers...yet still seem to think a woman (especially one who actually works at a sport) cannot be viewed as an athlete (regardless if she is NFL quality) and instead as a mere sex symbol
Frankly, as much as I dislike the Falcons...i prefer a team from our own division winning regardless of the degree to which I dislike them.
More attention on the division equals spotlight...gets us by default more attention..helps attract higher level talent/coaches...etc etc. The south has been fighting an uphill battle against northern teams for decades (Dallas excluded because really, that isnt the "south")
Bigger picture is more important than gloating over a division rival. Seriously..they are there...we are not. If we take pride in the fact they lost to someone else (and create 15 threads about it tomorrow)...we are the losers..not them~
Not sure I qualify as "international" as I am a Raleigh native, but I've been in S. Korea for the past 8 years. Been with the team since its birth, although I missed a few years when I first came to Korea and couldn't find a reliable way to stream/watch the games.
Still wearing an old worn out Panthers sweater I got for Christmas like 12 years ago, still have a Panthers hat signed by Jordan Gross at a fan event just after he was drafted,..and still talking poo to the few Eagles/Saints*** fans I run across over here~~
I'll beat my chest about this one,,,because regardless of how close it ended up being, or how we could have done SO much better if certain plays happened, at the end of the day..it was the EAGLES
And god I hate that team..ever since that Championship game years ago after which I read in the News/Observer that some Philly dike was pissed that they were losing, and decided to make up some lie about the Panthers fans around her assaulted her, causing them to get thrown in the stadium jail.
I dont care how bad they are, or how bad we are...we beat the fuggin Eagles and for me personally that is almost as good as the Superbowl itself.
Fug the Eagles! Spit on that team and their fat, dirty fanbase! I dislike them more than the Falcons or Saints***
Here is a crazy idea: How about a sign that supports OUR team, rather than one that makes crappy jokes about a team that is 3-0
Seriously, we just had a terrible game, and some of these folks suggest going in to their stadium with crap talking about how we dominate them, their team sucks...etc etc?
If we were 3-0, and a 1-2 Falcons/Saints fan came into OUR stadium after a defeat like we suffered last week, and sat front row and put up some similar poo like some are suggesting to be seen on TV, I'd gladly get kicked out of the game and possibly a ride to the county jail to tear that crap down/"accidentally" spill beer all over that dude, maybe come to blows, and whatever else it took to ruin that guys day!!
Some of the folks here (if these suggestions are to be taken seriously) are a classless as the worst Saints*** fans!
Cant say the team overlooked them, but can say more than a few on this forum did the 38-10 (and the like) game predictions and all the talk about how easily we would trash them. It never fails to amaze me how folks who have no inside information, aren't a part of the organization, and only know what yahoo/espn/ misc. news outlets spits out, or otherwise their own loyalty, can say with such confidence that we will win against such and such team.
That's why I love this place..its always good for a few laughs.
Sadly as mentioned, though everyone hoped he would work out, he didn't, But rather than just leave the guy alone he is the favorite kicking toy for this forum.
Seems to me the best way would be to simply ignore him rather than continue to belittle a man who despite his failure in the NFL to date has tons more talent that anyone here commenting on how bad he is, or how his mother should regret giving birth, or all of the other snide remarks that get made. Serves no purpose to continue to insult the guy.
Not a fan of the Saints by any means...but wow it seems so childish when we finish with the pooty record we did, yet so many of our " self proclaimed classier than Saints' fans" fans come out with the nanner nanner poo poo when another team with a MUCH BETTER record falls.
Division rival aside...I'd rather a "Southern" team win over a west coast hippy ***** city, or a Yankee city anyday.
Teams have to do both to avoid being one dimensional. Look at when the saints finally won the Superbowl, they had a top 5 passing game and a top 5 running game as well as an improved defense.
A top running game improves your passing game and vice versa. Part of the reason our running game suffered last year was lack of a deep passing attack and keeping safeties out of the box. But a great passing game without any running game can be shutdown as well much like New York did to New England in the superbowl after the 2007 season.
Agreed. I don't mean to sound like the run game is invaluable, but as you mention, it needs to be balanced with at least something that resembles a passing game (something we had none of last season). Simple strong run, strong defense isn't going to cut it anymore.
