Carolina Panthers Training Camp

Jul 07 2013 08:17 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
Once again it is time to get a first look at our Carolina Panthers.

Their practice schedule is listed here...

Here are a few tips you won't read on the Panthers official webpage....

- Autographs are given before and after practices. Line up at the fence near the athletic buildings about an hour before the scheduled practice. Not all players will sign. Some of the regulars that will sign most of the time are Steve Smith, Jon Beason, Jordan Gross, and Deangelo Williams. Ron RIvera will also usually sign.

- Kids are given priority during autograph time, as they should be. If you are an adult trying to push aside a child you will be called out and shamed for it.

- When you first arrive, look for the video cameras at the top of the large blue lifts. Whichever field they are pointing at will be the field that sees most of the action that day. Pick your spot accordingly.

- Bug spray, bug spray, bug spray, bug.... spray.

- If you visit the Beaconrestaurant, be sure to say "a plenty" after your order to ensure maximum heart clogging damage

- Cameras are allowed, but video cameras are not. You may be asked to put them down.

- If it seems like players are ignoring you and your screams at them during practice, its because they are. They are there to work, not to listen to your opinions.

- Shade is at a premium. Get there early to grab a spot under one of the trees on the hill.

Whatever gets you through. Work on a sunday is not fun. But seriously, you need to try hush puppies; theyre life altering.

Yeah I just looked them up they look like really good tailgating food. Get me some wings and poppers too!

haha thanks for translating. Wings, potato skins, nachos or mozzarella sticks have any different names?

Between practices is:

Strength and conditioning
Recovery
Meals
Lots of classroom
Media time

It's a very full day dawn to dusk from what I am told. Everything is scheduled to the minute.

This one is a joke, right? Please tell me folks don't go there and scream at the players... it's tantamount to going to the hair salon and screaming at the stylist to use the #2 guard on the clippers. Let the professionals do their job, without comments from the peanut gallery.

 

 

I yelled at Keary Colbert every TC I attended...................lazy bastard.

there ya go...

allow me to break up this awkward moment...................  with talks of band camp.

 

 

 

staying in shape for band camp?  am I supposed to come away from that with less jokes?  My mind wanders around this playground...  

I figure running around with a trombone is quite aerobic..  a quiet exercise?  I wouldn't wish that on my enemies..  Well, cancel that, I would..  Sounds exhausting.....   (that's what she said, right?)  

 

but seriously though......  Okay...  good....  now.

 

 

 

lol....glad you got that out but I have a feeling you are plotting oh so many jokes.

I walked into the locker room last year and those guys strip down and jump in a big tub filled with ice water right after practice. My testicles ascended into my body at the sight of it.

i know a lot of you live in Charlotte, but is it a norm to stay somewhere in Spartanburg if you plan on going for a few days?

Hope our guys are smart and do well with mental reps.

Yea.....Zod answered my question.  Period.  No band jokes.

Probably so, although Spartanburg is Satan's sweaty taint

hmm just seems like a big waste for me, driving 3.5 hours there for one practice 

 

unless I convince myself into staying  night

I'll be at Training Camp starting from that the first Sunday onwards. I'll be posting random thoughts on here and tweeting pictures and poo like a couple of years ago. I'm going to try and make it to at least four or five practices this year.

One night is fine. Try the Pizza Inn. It's a 1984 time warp.

It takes me about 3hrs to get there and I still think its worth the drive.

Yes people yell at players.... my grandmother yelled at Dan Morgan (her favorite player at the time) one time and he kinda looked and waved... looking back I can't help but smile AND shake my head. LOL.

Omar Gaither and myself yelled back and forth his entire first practice with us
People were down right dicks last year...

It was the first day (back to football party) and people were going hard at Olindo Mare.

He shanked one kick and people jumped all over him.

Lol...yes they did.

And for the love of God be polite to Steve or your ass will be on youtube getting chewed out.

 

Cant tell you how many times I have seen this.

I'm 20, but I'm only 5'7, so I look like a high school kid... so it's easy for me to get autographs. I was getting Smitty's auto last year when a women just cut through everyone and shoved a ball for Steve to sign right in his face, and he just walked away from her.

He doesn't play games.

He gives you respect if you give him respect.

Have only gotten an autograph from Steve one time, and it wasn't for me.  It was for a little boy I coach in flag football who was sick.

 

Don't know if I'll get to go this year or not.  Hopeful though.

For all the autograph seekers. Being Polite will get you very far. As for Smitty he is kinda hit or miss with Auto's. He usually signs for kids. So if your an adult and have children, your best bet of obtaining Smitty's auto, is to have your kid ask him. Remember to be polite! Try not to call the player by their 1st name (its not like you know them on a 1st name basis anyway) saying Mr. and please really increases your odds. And also from my past experiences, try to get the auto before they practice. I cant tell you how many times I have gotten crappy autos from players sweating on the stuff i had them sign, not to mention its gross. Good luck to everyone! And also please don't be that grown ass man in the crowd begging for an article of a players clothing.....have some damn shame! And yes i have witnessed grown men doing this every time Ive been to camp.
