In Topic: How did it get this bad?

15 March 2013 - 04:28 PM

I just do not understand, like was it Marty that horrible, or was it JR trying to not be called cheap. If you where Marty 2 years ago, you HAVE to let D-Will go to Denver you HAVE to. There is no bullshit excuse for this. Now I see the 49ers keep getting better with all there team being pro bowlers and we suck? No upgrades, just downgrades. Do you guys not understand this is bad. We will be ripped to shreds by BETTER teams in the NFL. When I say better I mean 28 other teams. Rivera you're done dude. See ya. As for those bull poo winning streaks at the end of the season? Don't bother you're out for good so just let us tank like the Bobcats.


It all started with us not blowing everything up after 2008. Tanking 2 years was understandable until we broke the bank trying to overpay for players on a 2-14 roster and keeping the GM in tact.

Had we done in 2008 what the Colts did in 2011, we'd be in a much better position.

Oh I'm not saying he can't, I'm just saying...

Falcons need to find a pass rush before they can be considered a serious SB contender IMO.


If we had that roster, this board would be overflowing with Super Bowl predictions, just saying...

In Topic: Hornets won't happen

A survey is a survey. It really doesnt mean much.

John I just flew back from Houston Texas 2 days ago. I was out there for 4 days and do you know not once did I see or hear anyone bitching about "getting the Oilers name back". The Texans are just now experiencing success after sucking their first 7-8 years but you would never know it by how rabid they are out there about them. Rockets aint been in the NBA playoffs in a few years, but the fans still support em and rep em everywhere I went out there. I wish our fans and city had half the heart of those guys. It really puts in perspective how shitty a sports town this is, and what we prioritize. "Name changes" over "unconditional support". ;)


1. Texans is actually a pretty cool name and brand. Bobcats isn't.

2. Texans doesn't remind them of an owner that could have cared less about the city of Charlotte or running an NBA team. Furthermore, the ownership has built a winner.

Bob Johnson had his opportunity to say "Hey, look, I know Shinn screwed you over and you're pissed, but I'm going to prove to you that I'm not Shinn and care about the community" and did just about everything wrong in the process. It took freaking MICHAEL JORDAN purchasing the team to finally get them into the playoffs.

It's been 9 years and the most positive momentum this team has ever gained has absolutely nothing to do with their on-court play (futility incarnate) drafting (incompetence incarnate) or their brand (apathy incarnate.)

The amount of attention garnered in this market by the Bring Back the Buzz movement is a testament to just how much of a failure Bob Johnson was in this town. Why you choose to act like he is some godsend to this community I'll never know.

It's like me, an App student, trying to say Armanti has been awesome on the Panthers because of what he accomplished in college. You want to talk about how Bob Johnson rose to prominence from nothing as an entrepreneur? Fine. You want to say he helped black culture in America by creating BET? Fine. That's great and all, but don't try to convince me or anyone else here in Charlotte that Bob Johnson had a clue what he was doing as an NBA owner. All the evidence says otherwise. His presiding over this franchise made MJ look like Dr. Jerry Buss.
