#3126740 Cam Involved in serious car wreck, reportedly uninjured

Posted by Panther17 on 09 December 2014 - 01:14 PM

neck braces are sometimes precautionary.




I was in a car accident as a passenger.  Feet smashed between floor board and dash.  No injuries above my ankles but I still had to be strapped in with a neck brace for precaution.  

#3126448 Is Sunday a must win for Ron to keep his job?

Posted by Panther17 on 09 December 2014 - 10:51 AM

If we win the SB this year people here will still want him fired.


I'm in this camp.  Is that wrong?


1st NFC South team to win the division in back to back seasons.

1st NFL team to win the Super Bowl with a losing record.

1st NFL team to fire their Head Coach a week after winning the Super Bowl.


Is that too much to ask?

Your kidding right?! Do you actually think this team is mentally tough enough to win in a hostile environment in below freezing weather?! What dont you guys understand about this team has completely mailed it in?

This team has given up, checked out and mailed it in. You people cant tell this by simpy watching this team play?! This team played with more sense of urgency during pre season then they are now.

We will win one more game this season against the Bucs and thats it and frankly, they better be glad im giving them that one. Im sorry but this franchise has nothing going for it whatsoever heading into the future.

Rivera isnt going anywhere, we dont have a new GM to look forward to, that joke of a QB we have now will still be our QB come next year, this Panthers team totally sucked my interest of football, i didnt watch a single game yesterday and enjoyed every minute of it

Why even log on to a football forum then? You already mailed it in for the season. Come back around draft time.

#3095822 Sign LeGarrette Blount

He was pissed at Pitt b/c he had to share dutys with Bell.  Something tells me he won't fit here.


That post pretty much ends the thread.

#3081007 IR Cam

Posted by Panther17 on 11 November 2014 - 09:36 AM

I was thinking this as well.  


He's beat up.  No where near 100%.  Cam's not going to admit it.  But you can see when he plays.


The team sucks.  The season is over.  No point in destroying the man.


IR him.  Let him rest.

Are you suggesting Hardy intentional put himself in the middle of a domestic violence trial in order to collect 13 mil while sitting at home?

#3005750 For those of you interested in supporting the huddle....

Posted by Panther17 on 08 October 2014 - 01:29 PM

i think/know jeremy's decision to make part of the forum a pay-for-use section wasn't an easy one. either just before i came around in 2005 or just after there was a paid membership that gave you access to some...well, i'll just say interesting things that sponsors wouldn't appreciate. he decided, tho, just to make this site free for everyone and support the upkeep of the site by using pay-per-click/action ads and that was probably enough (though so many browswers having ad block features made it a bit more challenging).

then, as i mentioned earlier in this thread, jeremy was presented with a very lucrative offer to buy this forum. the downside was that things would be changing a lot, and not in good ways. the company that was interested in buying it spent more on meeting with jeremy and get him to sell than most fan forums are worth. and, like i said, he turned it down because he was more interested in protecting the integrity of this site...which is basically his baby) than the load of money he could make from selling it. with that in mind, he has a family that he also has to support and it's hard to justify passing up so much money and also freeing up a lot of your time for what was essentially a glorified hobby.

to justify his decision and do right by his family, he had to try and find ways to monetize this site more than it had been and turn it into more of a business. one option to do that was to do what he did and create a way for people to, of their own choosing, pay for use of this site. to give them an incentive to do it and thank them for helping support the huddle, he felt it would be an adequate thanks to provide them with a little something special. i will tell you that even though there is a decent number of allpro members and that number is growing, he's not going to get rich from it. at least not from the number of members right now. what it is doing, though, is helping him travel to games outside charlotte and provide us with a lot more cool content that even non-allpro members can see.

i totally understand your financial situation. mine has changed a lot in the past year as well in ways that make me rethink how i spend even a dollar here and a dollar there. i won't say that you aren't missing much by not being a member, but i will also say that because there are people willing to pay $5/month for some extra goodies, you are getting more goodies here than you would have without them. if you haven't noticed there's been a significant upgrade in the quality of content in the main forum this year and that is because the things that he is doing to support the site financially is allowing him to have that freedom of access and it is also incentive for him to provide more.

whether or not you realize it, you are benefitting from the all-pro membership. you may not have access to everything, but you definitely have access to more than you had before it's creation.


I am grateful for what he does and hope he becomes a wealthy man.  If my financial situation changes for the better, I'll make the jump to all-pro because Mr Igo deserves compensation.  For me personally, our mortgage is going up due to property taxes and homeowners insurance going up.  Gas and electric bill is going up.  A bundle of joy is on the way and they are not cheap.  Just right now, all pro membership can't be a option for me since my budget is already changing so much with other things taking money out of retirement and kids college funds.  


I never meant my concern to be a slam on his decision to move to having an all-pro section.  I hope he realizes that.  

I hope he toes that line of free/paid content masterfully and my concerns were for nothing.

#3005558 For those of you interested in supporting the huddle....

Posted by Panther17 on 08 October 2014 - 12:19 PM

I get the gist of what you're saying, but the idea of having a paid package is to put things there that not everyone gets.


(full disclosure: I'm not currently a paid member)


Yes.  I was more trying to convey the message of  following that line of what is free content and what isn't free content. What was discussed when it was being implemented and staying true to it.




the injury update in the all-pro section has to do with one player and is more just something that he heard rather than anything official which is why he chose to not put it out there for the general public, and this isn't the first time he's shared something like that. before the allpro section he used to share certain things with just the mods in the mod forum, but those little inside tidbits he hears he now shares with those as part of the allpro forum.

i'm not saying that this is one of these moments, but because of his relationship with the panthers, just like most beat reporters, if you want to continue to have pretty free access to the team, certain things you will be asked to keep to yourself or at least not broadcast to the general public and that has more to do with keeping a strategic advantage from opponents rather than just trying to keep the public in the dark.

if it was something more substantiated, then it probably would have been shared in here. if you want an inside scoop on things that may be going on with the team that he hears from sources within the team that aren't meant for the mass public, then join up.


That did cross my mind.  It's hard to tell since I obviously don't know what is in any of them.  And it is completely understandable.  This time here is probably a bad example then.  The issue is a concern though to me at least.  If it would change to all carolinahuddle.com news being paid only I understand the reasoning behind it and I wish him success in his career choice.


The amount to join up is very reasonable.  If my family's money situation was better, I would join up.  While it's a small amount, the small amounts here and there add up when you consider all your bills together.


I tried to put my concern in a understanding of Mr Igo's right and need to make money off of the excellent information he already gives us.  It's completely understandable and I don't fault him for doing it.  Hopefully it read that way.
