SPARTANBURG, S.C.  – Every summer since 1995, football fans from all over the country have staked their claim on a grassy hill above Wofford College’s football practice fields in the hopes of seeing stars.

 

This summer, for the 20th time, those fans – many now very seasoned in their fandom and bringing along a new generation – will flock to the campus to see a well-seasoned football team, the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. It’s a team that went from an expansion franchise awarded in 1993 and playing its first season in 1995 at Clemson’s Death Valley, to playing in Super Bowl XXXVIII in the 2003 campaign, to a two-decades-old team that boasts fans from around the world.

 

Without Jerry Richardson, a 1959 Wofford graduate and member of the board of trustees, none of it would be possible.

 

On Monday, May 12, the Wofford Board of Trustees honored Richardson, the only NFL owner to have played in the league, and recognized the upcoming 20th anniversary of summer training camp on the campus by dedicating a sculpture of Richardson. The sculpture, created by noted California artist Todd Andrews, stands on the patio of the Harley Room in the Richardson Physical Activities Building – depicting Richardson seeming to be ready to walk over to Gibbs Stadium to watch the Terriers – for which he also played – take on the next worthy opponent.

#2747009 And again... TSA is a waste of money

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 22 April 2014 - 11:29 AM

I think the point of the OP is that the chain is only as strong as its weakest link. If someone can get to the airplanes as easily as this 16-year-old did, then no amount of security up front is going to do any good whatsoever. (I think the OP wasn't saying TSA failed in its job to secure the perimeter.)

When is the last time you saw a heterosexual player hold a news conference to tell everyone he is heterosexual?

 

They don't have to ... they are able to exhibit their heterosexual "lifestyle" through their everyday lives. Being seen out and about with their women, holding hands, kissing, etc. The same cannot be true of a homosexual player who isn't "out."

LP did you ever play high school  or college football or basketball on a men's team?

 

I'm absolutely certain there were lesbians in my junior high and high school gym classes, therefore in the locker room when I was changing my clothes and ... oh, my gosh ... NAKED in front of them. Never worried me at all. Didn't fear they would turn me into a lesbian. Never worried that they were "eye fugging me" (whatever that is). Never intimidated me at all.

 

It's so sad that there are so many insecure, homophobic men out there, and on this board.

HAHAHAHAHA!

 

I'm sorry man, it's just I expected better.  There's no difference between objectifying a naked person vs a clothed person.  HAHAHAHAHA!  That's funny.

 

Objectifying is objectifying ... and I'm no man.

Yeah but they're not being seen naked by men.  A little of it is to be expected, but not to that extent.  I have no problem with people that are gay.  Get married, have the same rights, and live a long happy life.   Just don't look at me naked.

 

IGay people don't have this magical switch where they can be attracted or not to guys they work with.  If you're gay and you're not looking at the best athletes in the world then your not gay and we're not even having this conversation.

 

In the same way that you aren't attracted to all women, gay men are not attracted to all men. And if these men who are naked in the locker room don't think they've been seen by another (closeted) gay man before, they are dead wrong.

 

(And I don't think there's much of a difference between objectifying a clothed person or a naked person -- objectification is objectification, period.)

It's not that it's a homophobic sport. 

 

The reality is dudes see you naked in the locker room, it's a physical sport, and a lot happens under the pile.  Just because I don't care if they legalize gay marriage doesn't mean I should have to feel objectified at my work place.  

 

It's not phobic if it's reality.

 

It's like a dude playing girls basketball, using the same locker room and everything.  It's essentially the same thing if someone's gay.

 

Women are objectified at work (and elsewhere) constantly by men .... wtf are you talking about?

If it is biological then having a brain that mutated would explain what you are talking about.  There is a disorder and when I say dis I mean out of the ordinary.  The average person isn't gay just like the average person doesn't have 2 thumbs, so if being gay is a disorder than that person has a mental or hormonal imbalances.  If it's mental then test needs to be done to figure out how to tell the signs at birth so parents will know how to give their children the right treatment to cure the mental imbalance.

 

However if it is hormonal then there can be testoterone and estrogen shots that can be given to bring that balance back in place.  If it's neither then it is a lifestyle and choice and they will they chose to carry on with daily life.

 

Let me be the first (as far as I've read) to say this ... you are a full-of-poo idiot.

It's actually illegal to not carry identification with you at all times. Make yourself appear as a law abiding citizen and give them no reason to arrest you

 

That's not true. Not in the US. (Some states have stop-and-identify laws, but not all.)




#2582487 So apparently fat people can't even acknowledge their own fatness anymore

Posted by Panthers_Lover on 03 January 2014 - 01:31 PM

No miracle here sir. Just common sense.

 

 

Not a sir ... and no common sense on your part.

Why must we have this ridiculous conversation/argument all the time? Especially right here when ALL Panthers fans should be on a huge high, instead of looking to disparage any of the fan base. Stupid.
