After Zod made the thread this morning about having Huddlers contribute to the site, a lot of you revealed you have writing experience. Well, imagine this... Zod's photo skills and connections, writing from Huddlers, my design skills, and everything that IS The Huddle all rolled into a 50 page Monthly magazine!!!
Me and Mrs. M3OW have been brainstorming all day, and I even threw together a sample cover and table of contents. Take a look...
Here is a break down of some of the sections we came up with:
Meet The Huddle - Would have a introduction to a Huddler/Fan, a section for opinions, and a Q&A.
Kitten of the Month - A two page spread with a new Kitten each month. Pictures, profile, and more.
Under the Helmet - This is where Zod will have to pull some strings and try to get a player interview.
On The Field - This is the section where we would have detailed analysis about the team (X's & O's) and whatnot.
The Growl - Panthers news for the month, including roster changes, scores, ect.
The Buzz - Section for all things Charlotte Hornets
Tailgate Tails - Section for recipes, tips and tricks, stories, and maybe even beer reviews for tailgating.
The Lounge - Pretty much a section for the off-topic topics. Anything could got here.
Get Your Paws On - A section for cool stuff, their reviews, where to buy them, and so forth.
It would take some time, effort, and dedication for the people involved. But this could take off. I'm working for a magazine in NC right now and know the ins-and-outs of what it takes to get this off the ground and get it going. And (If memory serves me well) we even have a few salesmen in the Huddle if we ever got to the point we could sale advertisements.
Meowx3, dude do you have the fonts used for last years sigs. I can cook up some sigs and see if people like them if not they can blow me.
I made that font from scratch for those sigs last year. Had to take the Panthers logo and make due in Illustrator to get the font as close as possible. There is no font made for the Panthers unless you know someone in the Panthers PR Camp.
Sprint used to be crappy here but in the last 3 months they have done major upgrades and now I have 4G in places I use to get dropped calls. I've been with Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Bark but Sprint has by-far the best services. May find some spots that suck here or there, but they have been working on them for a year now.
Fellow Panther fans, it is time once again to show we are the best fan base in the NFL. As fans, theres only so much we can do for our team. We sit back, and watch our team and hope we like what we see. Last summer, there was an online vote to determine the best uniform in NFL history. Not only did the Panthers win it all, we as a fan base took that bracket by its balls and strategically molded it into our favor. It all started here. Greatly disrespected by Dave Dameshek, we made him poo and we rubbed his nose in it. He even came to the huddle and poo posted in a bitch rage. It was a huge victory for us, especially considering how well coordinated and efficient we were, united as one.
Now, we have an opportunity to do the same, but on a much larger stage. Right now, we find ourselves in the second round of the Madden 15 cover vote. Luke is head to head with Colin Kaepernick, and Cam is head to head with Jamal Charles. Say what you want about the curse, but it has been dead for years. Both of our guys want to be on the cover, especially Cam. This bracket gets a ton of coverage on ESPN and NFL network. We have an opportunity to grab hold of this vote, just like the uniform vote, but on a national stage with airheads in ESPN and NFL Network talking about it. Regardless of whether you like the idea of having one of our guys on the cover, this is a chance for us as fan base to flex our muscles and pound our chest. We might not have the bandwagon numbers, but we have the best and most compassionate fans in the League. A Cam Newton vs. Luke Kuechly as the final round would be epic.
You, can be a huge part of this. 40,000 posts, or just one, you should want to be apart of this. Many of you know what's up, those who were apart of the uniform vote in which we dominated as a forum, as a fanbase. Even if you are a lurker, you should sign up and help us. Please help us make this possible. You alone could have a big impact on how this cover vote shakes out and we need you!
Heres the deal, please send me a Private Message. What made us so powerful and efficient as a unit in the uniform vote was the fact that we were all connected, and under the radar. Even if you know the drill and are a veteran, please PM me. I have very important information that will make the voting process much more effective. Please, join up and lets get this done.
Everytime you see Luke or Cam on the cover of madden next fall, YOU can know that you were a very large part of what went down to make it happen. When you see Airheads on TV confused as to how Luke and Cam ended up in the final, YOU confused them. Hit Me up.
You know I'm in! Round up the Panther Nation Generals!!! It's time to KEEP POUNDING once again!
I think a podcast is our best bet. As many connections a Zod has, we should be able to get a few people from the organization on it. Plus, with the loss of This Is Gross, it might be the "Go-to" place for a Panthers Podcast.
