#3372990 Shawn Oakman does 40 inch box jump holding 70 pound dumbbells

Posted by coralreefer_1 on Yesterday, 11:47 AM

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?



#3366463 How many true, lifelong Panthers fans are actually out there?

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 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.

#3362907 Atlanta Falcan'ts were paid $1 million to 'honor' the military

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 11 May 2015 - 10:32 AM

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.

#3360127 A little trouble in paradise (Seattle)? RW contract talks

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 08 May 2015 - 08:29 AM

Wilson didn't win a Super Bowl, the Seahawks did. This ain't tennis. But if you're going to say Wilson personally won a Super Bowl you also gotta say he personally lost one too. Sounds like it evens out.


And Cam alone may or may not win us a superbowl..the Panthers will (or not)


The only difference is one team has won it once, been to a second, and otherwise dominated the league over the past few years. The other (us) have no such claim. Hell, most of the people here measure our team against Seattle.


I dont have an issue with Cam getting paid big money (even if it breaks the team) But to say (and i havent seen that he has but everyone seems to put words in his mouth that he will) ask for  RW type money is a joke, and in my opinion would make Cam more big-headed than people are accusing Wilson of being.


I know we are all homers for Cam and out team, but step out of the box for a moment and look at the RESULTS. Anyone who thinks Gettleman is just gonna ignore these things and dish out the kind of money people say RW is demanding to Cam is dreaming.

#3358782 Anyone else a little worried about DE?

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 07 May 2015 - 09:15 AM

No. We got spoiled with having CJ and Hardy. Most teams do not have tandem badass players on BOTH sides like that. We still have CJ on one, and company on the other side. It may not be ideal...but I'm not worried at all.

#3331673 Thomas Davis to announce our 1st round pick

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 23 April 2015 - 10:26 AM

Does this mean they WONT cut to a commercial during our pick... and we might actually get some meaningful commentary from the panels about our pick? cause without FAIL every year.. after the pick before our pick they Cut to commercial ... and pretty much skipout on any meaningful conversation in regards to our drafting, only to come back and spend 30mins talking about the pick after ours...


Not that i hang on every word in the draft, but isn't anything said before or after a pic just regurgitated crap that has been said/commented on for weeks and months previously?


In many cases, less is more. Its all just filler for airtime anyway, and the same soundbites/opinions that have been expressed anyway. The same "panel" you are hoping to hear commentary from are the same group of talking heads that we see linked here everyday.

#3331479 Dear Carolina Panthers FO

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 23 April 2015 - 07:40 AM

Dear Armchair GM's:


We make the decisions we do because we have information about players, contracts, needs, and aspirations for the team that you cannot begin to understand or fathom.


While we know it is good fun and we DO in fact appreciate fan insights, rest assured we are working for the organization (and you aren't) because we bring something to the table that 99.9% of fans/others don't.


Thank you for your letter, and please accept this complementary keychain as a souvenir  and demonstration of our appreciation for the laughter and joy your letter has brought to us.






#3312360 Cam Newton will not be the highest paid QB in NFL history

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 05 April 2015 - 05:36 AM

Ive had a suspicion all last season (and posted it) that real help for Cam (cap issues aside) was purposely left out (protection for Cam namely) for the reason to keep Cam's stats down, thereby giving some leverage into contract negotiations. Might only be the difference between a 19 million a year contract rather than 22 million....but 3 million saved on the cap is pretty nice.


Still believe it,and if Gettleman in the businessman and strategist that many here like to believe..its not all that far fetched of a notion.

#3289218 End of the road for River in SD?

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 18 March 2015 - 10:34 AM

Back when i was a young buck, i used to take his order at Fat Daddy's in Raleigh. Never really understood why the managers and owners kissed his ass at the time ( they were all State fans and i didnt give a crap about college ball)...but he was always cool in there...never took on an air of superiority...etc.


Wish him much success wherever he goes or stays!

#3270361 Ted Ginn Jr agrees to 2 year deal with Panthers

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 09 March 2015 - 08:39 AM

Great news, see Ya Bersin!!!!


Bersin wasnt bad as a receiver when he was called upon. A punt returner he is not, but lets not throw him out just because he sucked at returning. He had his moments catching the ball before he was thrust into a return position when Ginn was let go...and people here couldnt not contain their hard on for him~


Bersin still has a role I hope. That hope relies on him catching passes...not punts~

#3220239 What QB gets the most help from his team?

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 26 January 2015 - 05:24 AM

Why does this matter? It's a team game



Funny, in a thread a week or so ago about why Cam gets no respect, I specifically said that he doesn't get the attention we all feel he deserves because of the cast (or lack of) around him. Some dude came up to challenge me on it, and got pied out the ass for his comments wondering why in the hell would I even bring up the defense in a discussion about why Cam doesn't get positive national media attention. Forget the fact our defense has carried us the past two seasons....LOL.




#3207193 Why does NFL media hate Cam Newton? (Bear fans take on Cam.)

Posted by coralreefer_1 on 16 January 2015 - 05:48 AM

Honestly, I'm not so sure why it is a mystery.


1. We are the Panthers (small market team)


2. While true Cam has been lacking in weapons, this guy seems to suggest that if Luck, Manning,..etc didnt have the weapons they have, there would be a difference, Its a TEAM sport, and regardless of how talented one given player may be...people only care about the TEAM in the sense that TEAMS win games. Cam is great and has done more than can be mentioned here to help the team, but at the end of the day we arent that great as a TEAM...so I fail to see why people not familiar with our TEAM would look at our TEAM and heap roses upon Cam. In short, as great as Cam is/could be...he will only be as great (and get respect for it) based on TEAM performance. Everyone knows a stout front and a couple great receivers that can run routes well and catch the ball more times than not will make just about ANY QB look like a star. Knowing that nearly everyone here has admitted such themselves when talking about other lesser QB's...why would it be a wonder that Cam being as awesome as he is.. not being able to shine because of a lack of that supporting cast?


3. I said it earlier I think in preseason, and I got alot of crap for it (and probably will again, but thats ok) that Cam is not the star of this team. Sure, he is the QB and the one that gets most of the attention, but star in terms of performance he is not. That honor goes to 59 and honorable mention to 58..  I really hate how this guys talks about what the TEAM has done last season and this season, and uses it to justify his position about Cam, and completely forgets the fact that our success last year and for the most part this year as well as a TEAM came from the defense...not Cam. Of course Cam played a major role, but I will keep repeating this is a TEAM. To go even further, based on the last two seasons, I would say that if our defense had not played as well as it has over the last few seasons...NOONE would be talking about Cam because we wouldn't have been relevant anyway.


4. Frankly, I dont want the national media talking about how great Cam is. Why? Because Cam has a big contract signing coming up. The more "good" attention Cam gets talking about how great he is and how valuable of a player he is just ups the figure his agent will fight for come negotiation time, or what other teams may offer him (that we may not be willing/able to offer him). Let Cam get signed first...and THEN lets fight and moan about him not getting respect. The lack of respect he is getting now may very well save this team millions in cap room per season in the coming years.



In the end, I dont think the media has "hate" for Cam. I just think they don't recognize what he has, can, and will do. Cam will go on and do great things with us no doubt, but I could not care less about what the national media things (like almost everyone here who craps on what national media says/reports.



But please oh please national media...like my QB and say nice things about him!!!  BWAHAHA

Not sure it is a 'smart" idea. Seems like common sense to me
