I'm seeing plenty of childish, sarcastic posts by those making fun of people that are freaking out. It's not like it's completely unwarranted. Right now we may have the worst WR corps and offensive line on paper in the league. It also doesn't help that Gettleman cut Steve Smith, easily the most popular player the Panthers have ever had.
Just the idea that you're trying to argue with me over what I've stated I've seen is a bit much. Opinions are opinions, unless they're insults, sarcasm, and childish antics such as trying to make every statement that you don't agree with seem foolish.
"I'm concerned about our receiver corps."
"Fug Gettleman! He sucks! Why didn't he sign (this guy I like)? He hated Steve Smith! He doesn't like Cam. He obviously doesn't care about winning this year!"
All very foolish, deserving of ridicule, and all statements that have been made on this board this offseason.
Frankly, I don't really care who's got the worst unit anywhere on the team in April. Right now 90% of the league has holes somewhere on their roster. They, and we, have until September to fill them.
Looks pretty even sided. Reactionary posts aren't necessarily invalid, and are opinions.
Stuff like this...
I mean LMFAO. What is happening right now? Fug Gettleman
He's probably the lowest paid GM in the league.
What if he's trying to set Cam up for failure so he can run him out of town?
...strikes you as "even handed"?
And yes, it was March when people said these things. It's April now, meaning there are still months of free agency and the Draft yet to come, a fact which makes all the panic and whining look pretty silly.
Yes, people have a right to their opinions, and other people ave a right to opinions about those opinions. And believe me, this is an extremely small sampling of the silliness that's gone on this year.
I'll say it again: When you throw out childish crap like a lot of the garbage we've seen this year, you fully deserve to get called out.
The only reason you don't report this is you know it is you don't think it's important, which probably means you haven't read up.
Lazy reporting annoys me, like when Yasinskas said Gettleman had never been a college scout. All you had to do was read his bio to know otherwise. A number of us on here had done so. Why wouldn't someone getting paid to know these things do it?
Thing is, this wasn't "stealthy" if you ask Joe Person. He knew about it 2 weeks ago. He was just too lazy to report it.
Except he's not quite reporting it correctly.
Person tweeted that Ramsdell was "replacing Offensive Quality Control coach Lance Taylor." Only Taylor wasn't the Offensive QC. He was the Assistant Wide Receivers Coach. And Ramsdell is neither taking the Offensive QC job nor the Assistant receivers job. He's got way too good a resume' for either of those, and the site actually lists his title as "Senior Offensive Assistant", something which usually indicates a high level consultant working directly with the head coach.
That story of his already knowing for two weeks loses a little bit of its zest when you see he got the facts wrong.
