This can't be right. Check my math

29 October 2014 - 10:44 PM

Looking over the Carolina Panthers Rewards social media contesting thing (you know, where you connect your social media accounts up to your Panthers.com account, then earn points for pimping out the Panthers to all your Social Media buddies)?


Here's the "How to Earn Points" breakdown:


  • 500pts - Earn points for connecting your Twitter account
  • 500pts - Follow our official Instagram profile
  • 500pts - Earn points for connecting your Instagram account
  • 500pts - Earn points for connecting your Facebook account
  • 300pts (1 / day max) - Follow the Panthers on Foursquare
  • 70pts (4 / day max) - Post a tweet with an approved hashtag
  • 50pts (2 / day max) - Like a photo on our official Instagram page
  • 25pts (1 / day max) - Install the official mobile app
  • 25pts (5 / day ) - Repinned a pin from an official Pinterest board
  • 25pts (2 / day max) - Comment on a photo on one of our official Instagram pages
  • 20pts (7 / day max) - Retweet our official Twitter account
  • 20pts (5 / day max) - Like something from our official Facebook page
  • 10pts (5 / day max) - Liked a pin from an official Pinterest board

And once you earn points, you can cash them in, like for a Signed LUKE jersey for 125k points.


125,000 points?  That should be possible, right?


Not so much.


According to the chart, after earning the 2000 obligatory "connecting" points, you can only earn a maximum of 1,170 pts per day if you do everything else they have listed (and frankly, you shouldn't get daily points for installing the official mobile app or following on FourSquare - that's just bonkers.... and it's no longer called FourSquare, so that's bogus right there)




So let's say you do everything, every day.


It will take you 100 days of farting around on social media in order to "earn" that LUKE jersey.


WTF?  Is that really worth the time and effort to piss off your friends and family like that?  You've got to be kidding me.

Let's play "Guess who made the sound byte"

the painful part of this is that unless we see results on the field, all of this is just words.  Cam and Rivera (and others) can keep saying "we need to get better" all they want, but they need to SHOW it, not just say it.  Otherwise, it's just empty press conference garbage.



10/26:  "We didn't make enough plays to win"  https://twitter.com/...473022841303040

10/26: "We have the players. We have the enthusiasm. We just need consistency."

10/26: " "I have to be better. I will be better and I'm looking forward to this game on Thursday."

10/22:  "Last week was unacceptable. As a team, we have to be better."

10/21: " "We're not competing hard enough. That has to be corrected."  https://twitter.com/...622621217153024

10/20: ""We have to go out and do our jobs against Seattle or the outcome won't be any different."  https://twitter.com/...370350667493377

10/20: "We have to keep going, keep fighting, and we'll find a way to get out of this."

10/20: "Things need to be addressed. That is on me 100%."

10/20": "I don't think the defense gave us an opportunity to win in the first quarter."

10/16: "Cam Newton playing best football of his career. He's been proficient, he's spread ball around. In total command."

10/13:  "It's the happiest tie of my life, but we have to get better."

Apparently, it's a Greg Olsen stalker (2nd in a series)

Another week, another time for wacky radio DJ to announce her "Hot Guys Fantasy Football Team".


As she does every week, she lists her team out with a cheesy pick-up line.



At Tight End…I need a pencil cause I want to erase your past and write our future. From the Panthers…Greg Olsen!



It's not much, but showing a little love to Olsen can't be a bad thing, right?

Greg Olsen has an STD (it's not what you think)

16 September 2014 - 07:02 PM

Here in Atlanta, one of the wacky radio morning shows has a girl on the show who is into fantasy football.


Except she picks her lineup based on how hot the guys are.  And once a week, she rattles off her lineup using cheesy pickup lines.  It sounds stupid, but it's pretty consistently funny.  I think this is her third year doing the bit.


And this year, her team "Turn Down For Butts!" -- Greg Olsen made her lineup.  Here's how she introduced him:




At Tight End…The only STD I have is sexually transmitted desire…for you…from the Panthers…Greg Olsen!



Catch the video here, for some behind-the-scenes radio action, which really shows how seriously she takes her football compared to her co-hosts.  She almost pee'd herself when she did the Olsen line.


Rank the Coaches?

14 September 2014 - 11:18 PM

That "typical John Fox team" has had far more success than we have. Not saying I don't like our current staff, but it's loooong past time Panther fans recognize how good a coach John Fox was/is. The guy won a playoff game with The Golden Calf of Bristol. Discussion over.


Over?  Did you say "Over"?  It's not over until.... well, you know the rest.


What do you think the overall ranking of our four head coaches should be?  Ex:


1. Rivera

2. Fox

3. Capers

4. Seifert


or something else?   Yeah, four is almost too easy to come to a conclusion on, I suppose... but is there room for movement on this?
