#2289758 Huddle Happy Hour

Posted by teeray on 16 July 2013 - 06:18 PM

On second thought....Johnny Walker Black for me please.


Geez. Madhatter turns every thread into a race thread.


#2289463 Elizabeth Warren Owns

2008 was a turning point for me politically in so many ways.

Obama was the first Democrat I had ever voted for for President and now I do not see a single Republican I would ever consider voting for in the near future.

Doesn't mean there isn't one out there somewhere, I just haven't seen him yet

Yes to Glass-Steagall reimplementation please.

 

If this get any traction I think it would have very broad public support.  Good for John Mccain being a part of this.

 

Also been good to see John McCain get all mavericky again in recent months.




#2288573 Union Letter: Obamacare Will ‘Destroy The Very Health and Wellbeing’ of Workers

Posted by teeray on 15 July 2013 - 07:47 PM

Two things that would help control the cost of insurance and healthcare would be the expansion of Medicaid and a public option.

Where did conservatives shake out on those?

With regards to premium rates, 80% of revenue from premiums has to be spent. So if rates go up and the insurance companies don't spend it on claims they send you a refund check.

If rates are up it could be because less claims are being denied which would be a good thing.

Last point, rates will differ for different people. Most people will see a decrease while some will see an increase.

This law is still in it's infancy so there will be bumps in the rollout. That is to be expected, but this is a good bill that will get better as it is fully implemented.

#2287955 Cam still a Falcon fan

Posted by teeray on 15 July 2013 - 12:36 PM

Why would he be a Panther's fan?  A large portion of the fanbase call him "Scam" Newton and criticize everything he says and does (see:  this thread), and the local media drills him over a routine autograph session and prints hello kitty cartoons degrading him.

Some of the things people will say thanks to the anonymity of the internet is disgusting.


#2286869 What this verdict means

Posted by teeray on 14 July 2013 - 12:35 PM

The biggest mistake black people keep making is get detracted by so-called few good white folks. How come guys like Trayvon can't encounter those few good white folks on their daily lives? I guess they're too busy posting on the Huddle.

I thought you said in the other thread that rooting for people because of skin color did not make you a bad person and didn't mean you were a racist?

I have had dozens of black friends and/or teammates who have been cared for and helped by white coaches and teachers every day.

Not every white person is George Zimmerman, which seems to be what you are suggesting.

Trayvon Martin is one person who was tragically killed, George Zimmerman is one person who made a devastating decision.

But they do not represent everyone in the world who share their skin tone.


#2286831 What this verdict means

Posted by teeray on 14 July 2013 - 11:59 AM

Most likely you're white, so you're probably right(no rhyme intended :) ).

I've had this debate with a fellow huddler who pretended he's colorblind, when race is involve whites will always root for theirs and blacks the same. To whites this is another winning victory for them even when they pretend they're colorblind. They're the first to say it's not about race while laughing in the inside. You, sir, enjoy your victory! I guess we're even now. Gz & OJ.


This is the world as you see it so you project it unto everyone else to justify it to yourself.

There is no doubt that there are many, maybe even most who are that way. But you would do yourself a favor to not paint the world in such broad strokes.

The world is not made of robots. Different people see the world in different ways.


#2286667 Adjusted Net [Pass] Yards / Attempt

Posted by teeray on 14 July 2013 - 07:19 AM

Very cool, makes Cam look good. Although Jake Delhomme is 34th all time on that as well. No knock on Jake or anything but we can attribute most of that to Steve Smith's ability and not Jake being a premier passer. But I digress....


Don't want to make this a Jake thread, but Jake's best year statistically Smith got hurt for the season in game 1.


#2285188 Cam Newton: Why Can't He Win?

Posted by teeray on 12 July 2013 - 06:06 PM

I just joined today...does anyone here talk about Carolina football? This is the third post i have looked through and over half of the content is arguments about non carolina or even football related items. Dont get me wrong I am the new guy here and i have seen some excellent posts (which is why I joined) i just wish moderators were more "ban happy" honestly. I know this problem is part of virtually every forum on every subject but it drives me crazy trying to find intelligent football discussions...
in regards to Cam wanting to be Captain, he was asked but if you read his answer it has been his plan at least for a good while, its not like the reporter gave him the idea. He does have a bit of maturing to do, but I think its worth working out and waiting for, he is learning both the game and being an adult, he has the tools, the talent and I think an overall good attitude. He has basically naturally won everything he touches with a ball, so when he loses I think he is still learning to deal with it. I think the Panthers are in very very good hands to continue to build around. I for one, I am very excited....

The problem is that it is the off season and all real Panther's football talk has been exhausted and most of us don't want to rehash the same argument over and over again.

Plus in the off season general NFL threads are allowed inthe Panthers forum.

Stick around the Huddle is great but an acquired taste!

I am an offense guy.

In college I will watch certain teams solely based on their offense (ahem Oregon)


#2282926 And, oh by the way......

Posted by teeray on 10 July 2013 - 04:16 PM

July 18th the NBA Board of Governors is going to officially vote on the name change to the Hornets.  Right around the corner!  8 days!!!

 

After that maybe we will start to see more information come out about color schemes, etc.

 

It has been a fun and eventful offseason so far.  Name change, Big Al, Cody, etc.

 

Can't wait for next season and beyond.  How many times have Buzzcats fans been able to say that?

#2282684 Article claiming Panthers should NOT decrease read option usage next season

Posted by teeray on 10 July 2013 - 01:36 PM

Not really related, but is there a website that scouted/tracked all the plays from last season? Never got around to purchasing the NFL GameRewind last year, new baby and all, to play with the all-22 video.

 

No prob if it's a pay site, just need to sift thru data.

http://www.catscratchreader.com/2013/7/9/4508740/the-truth-about-the-carolina-panthers-read-option#172590575

 

 

 

https://docs.google....k1MVFmZ0E#gid=0

 

 

Some interesting tidbit from this breakdown.  There were only 8 0 or negative plays out of the read option last season and most were from misreads.

 

The read option was not the issue last season and we would be foolish to get too far away from it.
