Breathless Media Types Could Have Handled This Better: True
After the infamous “Seven Second Pause” that left Panther beat writers collective mouths agape, much was written about how the front office had no confidence in Cam Newton. Only to be proven wrong by not only the team on field, but in the FO as well.
Once again we find them clutching at pearls while they try to decipher the new GM. Add this to the general inability to understand the salary cap (I’m calling you out JP) and you get one of the greatest non-stories this year. In an off season that is totally devoid of actual news, beat writers feel the pressure to create clicks so a controversy must be born!
Prediction: This kind of claptrap will continue to sink the reputation of sports journo’s that cave to the pressure of timelines that prevent actual reportage.
