#3100572 Spending $13.1 million

Posted by rippadonn on 22 November 2014 - 01:27 AM

Feels like Julius Peppers number take they money after a lackluster season..even though different situations...

Even though it hurt this year.. If he's cleared carolina should go after him for cheap.. But see other teams paying high for him regardless .. Just my 50cent ..

I think a team in our division would sign him. A guy who can play DE and DT at such a high level?!? There was no obvious pattern of abuse that I've read or heard about. It was a argument. If our ownership wants to continue to rack up PR points instead of Championships so be it. Maybe he's satisfied with the other awards other than the Lombardi. If your truly in the football business you would find a way to work things out with your best players.

As far as $. Yeah, Julius raped them if Hardy walks this could be worse. If you didn't want GH why pay him for a year when you gutted the team from last year. It only would have been smart if you were genuinely making a run for the trophy, like you should be every year anyway.


#3096650 Jason Avant Cut

Posted by rippadonn on 19 November 2014 - 12:24 AM

Nobody is that upset that Avant got cut. We're upset that the coaching staff is trying to ignore what is obvious. They have no balls, no innovative gameplan, and play it "safe" to keep a job. They ask players to give 110% yet they only give 50% because they only "take what the other team gives them" and are unprepared to bury an opponent. They coach with a very passive mentality. You're allowing the opponent to dictate to you what you're going to do. "Riverboat Ron" was born because we thought he finally grew a pair now they've shriveled up completely.

It's not about Avant, it's about them once again blaming players for their own shortcomings. It's not always the players failing it's coaching. Shula, Rivera, don't let Cam stand up there and take all the blame!!! F'n nut up and take responsibility! People respect THAT more than the foolishness you come up with.

20yrs of the same crap! Coaches get fired. Players go elsewhere and succeed. Every other year the team is set up to fail. Every other year we're rebuilding. Next year. Next year. Next year. Every coach is bargain basement startup material aside from Siefert.

Who can fire the owner? He's been underperforming for 20yrs.

Coaches put the blame on players ALL THE TIME. This staff isn't fit for the challenge. They let Smitty go because he'd let em hear it. Avant says something (a model citizen) and they get their panties in a wad.

Sorry, I really liked Ron a lot but this is the sign of weakness. They don't have the f'n heart to hear some well deserved critique. Yeah, players don't execute but they need to take responsibility and don't act so b*tchy when the media, fans and now a good guy calls you on your lack balls and lack of coaching talent.

#3086195 Steve Logan absolutely nails it about Cam Newton and Panthers

Posted by rippadonn on 14 November 2014 - 01:48 AM

Cam Newton has already been to the ProBowl twice in his young career and broke passing records etc.etc. He is an elite QB in the hands of the right OC. That's in the books. To judge Cam on this dumpster fire and forget that he already made history as a rookie would be very short sighted.

I don't know if he's elite yet, but he has the potential to be the best Panthers QB ever. That's enough for me. He's playing hurt and guys are coming out of the woodwork with "mechanics" and "inability to read a defense" and "footwork issues" crap.

If you race and your owner puts you in a sh!tty car and you come in last do you deserve the blame? The scrutiny? The paycut? How can anyone blame Cam Newton with #66,#77 among others underperforming as bad as they are. If we take away those DTs Luke and TD will look very normal. The FO deserves the blame not Cam.

#3069022 Some hard evidence why Shula needs to be fired now.

Posted by rippadonn on 05 November 2014 - 10:51 AM

Fox and DelRio reunited. If we ruin this QB and not supply him with what HE needs to make this offense succeed then pack it up! The NFL has changed. At least John Fox was forced to change with it when they got Manning. I've seen enough ShulaBall to see that it does not fit the talent we have. Chud loved the TE position. Shula doesn't use Greg Olsen like they should. Create plays for your TE who is as sure a catch as any in the NFL. I don't see any system. I see a guy trying to do the opposite of what he thinks the other guy thinks he's gonna do. Nice guy, not the right guy

He's ruining our QB.

I'm soooo tired as a fan of this team. Tired. It's like they're getting paid to be the Washington Generals every game if it's not horrible play it's horrible calls. I've seen every Panther game in person or TV. For my health and sanity I'm seriously thinking of skipping a few weeks. How they don't fire Shula I don't know. Sorry it's a tough job but this isn't even competitive

#3039809 How do you feel as a Panthers fan if John Fox and the Broncos win the superbowl?

Posted by rippadonn on 24 October 2014 - 10:43 AM

Fox still lives here. He'll always have my respect. Not sure our FO can deliver a Lombardi.

#3039157 Anonymous offensive assistant coach on Panthers D

Posted by rippadonn on 23 October 2014 - 07:46 PM

The other thing they have consistently been is ranked highly within a few years of his taking over. It takes time to learn this defense and play well in it. Changing out the secondary and injuries play havoc though as you don't have the experienced guys you need to run this defense.

The offseason was a disaster. You can't let all your experience out the door. I think they undervalued too many of their players including a Panther GOAT. When a player performs well reward the guy. That gets lost in "business as usual" these days.

#3036979 Another Hardy Thread....

Posted by rippadonn on 22 October 2014 - 11:21 AM

Hardy played week one without suspension while Rice was the guy suspended two games. How did Hardy all of a sudden become Ray Rice?. Media? If you run your team for the national media the Panthers will cease to be relevant. They never loved us and never will so why try to win some PR contest. Your fans and your team want you to win football games, championships. We don't care if the NFL loves us or ESPN loves us. We want to kick ass!

A player gets in a fight with his ex girl with a lot of he say she say no knockout or caps peeled, they both have scratches. Why let the media spin it into something else? This wasn't Ray Rice. If it's Goodell I'd be mad at the NFL for this if it's Jerry I'd once again ask him will a choir ever win a SuperBowl? Just my opinion: if another team would hire Hardy you'd be foolish to let go of a franchise player for a argument with a girl.

#3005570 Does Hardy come back after 6 games?

Posted by rippadonn on 08 October 2014 - 12:24 PM

If another NFL team would sign Greg Hardy after you released him you should seriously think about retaining your competitive advantage that you have in a franchise player. I'd institute the "Greg Rules" if I was Gettleman going forward. You don't give up on such a huge investment that you've spent years cultivating up to this point just to let another team have him because you don't have the b*lls to stand for winning.

ESPN's moral high horse is a donkey! No they don't want Carolina to win in the first place so why let them dictate your policy? Yes DV is a terrible offense but you have to look at each situation for what it is and not blanket every man with that label. In these cases it would seem a woman can go ape and assault a man and he isn't allowed to restrain that individual? If she is beating him isn't that assault. Why is there no equality there?

I'd let the man earn his paycheck. He's a franchised player. Those don't grow on trees! He didn't kill anybody nor did he beat her up like he could have so you have to look at the level of offense here. Your talking about jealousy and a big payday. People do anything for both. Don't fall for it. If NFL rules six games so be it! If guilty, fine his ars and keep it moving, tight leash in hand. Win Championships not popularity contests.

#2938793 Urgent: Referee Watch 2014-15 Panthers Edition

Sometimes the no calls are worse than the actual calls

#2938723 Urgent: Referee Watch 2014-15 Panthers Edition

Posted by rippadonn on 09 September 2014 - 09:18 AM

Ok. I was just sitting here thinking about that terrible roughing the passer penalty Sunday that I felt emboldened an already defeated Bucs squad. As Panthers fans getting pooed on by the refs is becoming almost something you can see coming as I did Sunday. The Bucs were getting embarrassed in front of their home crowd and the Panthers looked like theyre about to pull a shut out. Somehow I knew they would get "help" and so it was.

A couple plays later when DAs on the field he had one buc down behind his ankles while another basically speared him high and drove him into the ground well after the ball had left his hand. Coach Rivera was furious and... no call. This was right after the horrible penalty we got for our player running into the QB while upright and seemingly trying to pull up.

I've already ranted about the 49ers coronation we happened to be invited to last year in the playoffs. The refereeing in that game was suspect from the very start and became blatant by the end off the game with the guy jumping into our backfield and.....no call. The 49ers became emboldened when they saw THEY had the "help" that day and proceeded to do anything they wanted literally!

What can we do besides grumble? Organize! Let's call em out this year on their bulls**t! Id like to know if any of you guys have that have the capabilities to record and document theses egregious acts could record and post them here this season? The NFL should not be the WWF(WWE). Thanks!

Oh yeah! We are watching!
