Looks like Chris Carter with a beard.

#3261386 Cam was at Label during shooting

Posted by JawnyBlaze on Yesterday, 05:31 PM

Cam shoulda known what he was getting himself into.  All we need to do now is franchise tag him next year, then the shooter from the club accuses Cam of assault and Cam gets put on the exempt list for all but one game and we can go back to being a squeaky clean franchise. 




#3259847 Another "Look at my totally irrelevant mock draft!" thread

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 02 March 2015 - 01:04 PM

I like it.  I'd go a different direction with a couple of the choices, but I wouldn't be mad about any of those.  8/10 would bang.




#3259824 Panthers...Hot Balls-gate?

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 02 March 2015 - 12:52 PM

Yea, rehash story by Florio trying to paint the Panthers out as the bad guys (especially using the Panthers picture in an article that's actually about Deflategate...).  Wouldn't even surprise me if it was ignorance on both parts, Panthers and Vikings.  And even so, warming freezing balls up isn't really the same thing as letting air out.  One is trying to return the balls to their natural, regulation state.  The other is trying to make the balls outside of regulations and gain a competitive advantage.




#3259456 Frank Hollywood's 2.1 Mock draft: Post Combine

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 02 March 2015 - 09:16 AM

Love it for the most part.  I'd rather have Hardy than Dorsett in the third, but Hardy might not be there by then.  This would be a huge draft haul for us.




#3258607 Let's talk Kony Ealy

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 01 March 2015 - 01:30 PM

I certainly don't dispute our need for another DE with the likely departure of Hardy, but I'm just not seeing it in this draft. Outside of 2 or 3 guys I don't see any true high potential 4-3 DEs. And I don't really think those 2 or 3 will be available. AND I think our need for a LT and WR in is greater. So while we need a DE bad, our pass rush without Hardy was laughable last year compared to the year before, I'm not confident it'll happen this year. Wouldn't surprise me if we take one early, but wouldn't surprise me if we don't either.


#3258144 Panthers Final Decision On Hardy : No Thanks

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 28 February 2015 - 06:31 PM

Publicly.

and telling someone who writes for a website about your team knowing full well they would write about it isn't making it public? I don't believe Voth got his speculation from Gettleman. I believe he got it from someone with the organization who believes they have their finger on Gettleman's pulse, and I don't doubt it's the likely outcome, but I also don't believe it's a done deal or even remotely close to official.


#3257692 Panthers Final Decision On Hardy : No Thanks

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 28 February 2015 - 11:53 AM

It's not speculation when the decision makers on Hardy tell you flat out he won't be here. At that point, its reporting. 

 

Nowhere in that article did it say that decision makers on Hardy told him flat out he won't be here.  You're speculating that it was a decision maker.

I agree why so much doubt on Voth? He's credible in my book.

 

It's not so much doubt on Voth, no question he's been solid for the past year.  It's just that nobody knows and it's still nothing more than spectulation.  Speculation from Voth, speculation from whoever his source is on the team (if Gettleman is giving out info like this at this juncture, he's doing it wrong...and even if the info DID come from Gettleman, anything's possible.  Something could change between now and March 10-when Hardy would actually OFFICIALLY be gone), and speculation from people on this forum.  Few of us will deny that the chances of him staying are remote at best, but people passing off speculation as official new is misleading.




#3256932 NFL: Greg Hardy won't be reinstated because he hasn't been discipline...

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 27 February 2015 - 04:57 PM

But it was all wierd. Court didn't demand immediate something. NFL appealed.

I know the list allows certain communication that Peterson and his agent need to be....

I just haven't read anyone credible report otherwise in regards to consent.

 

The entire concept of the exempt list is weird.  As it stands now, it's an abuse of power in my opinion.  The NFL, and this commissioner in particular, is woefully lacking in a system of checks and balances.  I know all the owners care about are the paychecks and account balances and they're the ones that give him his power, but the whole thing reeks of bullshit.  The exempt list is just another way for the commissioner to throw his weight around and move the chess pieces on his board rather than treat people fairly and work out honest solutions to problems.
 




#3256840 League wide veteran purge

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 27 February 2015 - 03:52 PM

It does seem like a lot more recognizable names than this year, but my theory is that it's a result of the spending that happened after the lockout.  It's basically been a contract worth of time since then and now it's time for those players and back loaded contracts that got paid after the lockout to come off the books.




#3256833 NFL: Greg Hardy won't be reinstated because he hasn't been discipline...

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 27 February 2015 - 03:49 PM

NFL players have to consent and agree to be placed on it. They can resist if they want. Hardy believed that was his best option.

I'm just stating fact about the list

He likely agreed to it bc it secured him a paid vacation instead of facing you know.....punsihment of losing game day checks.

 

I'm pretty sure Peterson didn't consent to being put back on the Exempt list the other day after winning the suspension appeal.  So yea, we all read that Hardy chose the latter of the two punishments presented to him last year, but it doesn't seem accurate that a player HAS to consent to being put on it.  Since I'm pretty sure Peterson didn't agree to being put back on it.

Honestly though, who didn't see this coming a mile away. Of all 3 cases, Hardy wouldn't have been the one I would have put my money on for a guilty verdict.

well of the three, hardy is the only one who isn't guilty. The other two made a plea deal. They both had this little thing called evidence working against them. Hardy didn't have that problem.


#3255632 NFL: Greg Hardy won't be reinstated because he hasn't been discipline...

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 26 February 2015 - 05:19 PM

I don't get how hard it is to understand that this isn't like some regular joe construction worker getting a paid vacation. Even if you discount the fact that some of these guys actually enjoy the game and stopping them from doing that for a disciplinary reason (or any reason not related to performance) is inherently a punishment, it's affecting his earning potential. In the same way an employer can't impact an employee's ability to earn if the employee is summoned for jury duty or military reservist duty an nfl employer should not impact a player's reputation or ability to perform in a way that will impact their earning potential. That's a punishment.


#3255598 NFL: Greg Hardy won't be reinstated because he hasn't been discipline...

Posted by JawnyBlaze on 26 February 2015 - 04:54 PM

how is he likely innocent?

He got a guilty verdict...he appealed...then he paid her off....then chargers were dismissed.

IMO, the safest bet if you had to guess what happened....both he and she were probably both guilty that night.



I think he likely gets 1-2 games for conduct detrimental.


He's likely innocent if you actually paid attention to the situation and the trial. This was one of the most obvious money grabs I've seen in the nfl. At least in recent memory that i can remember. The only thing he's even remotely possibly guilty of is saying something stupid, but I imagine that'd be hard to prove.
