Riot Report: The Case For Matt Kalil - Why Bringing Him Back Is A Good Idea

Recommended Posts

You didn’t read the rest of what I didn’t like. Yes, I stuck on that first and I would have corrected it, but that and the Moton played RT in college were just examples where I felt it was a bit lazy to make a point. If you are going to try and take a polarizing player and make lemonade then your supporting arguments better be rock solid. That’s my hot take. 

I did read it. I’m not trying to convince you to like the article. The point of writing opinion stuff is to create a conversation. That’s all good. My point in addressing you was the way you were ripping him for the term (which I have already agreed was incorrect usage) when I know you’re smart enough to know he didn’t think Kalil was getting an additional $14.7M. I’m totally happy that you disagree with the article. I also do. And as much as I dislike Kalil, I can also fully admit Williams ain’t much better though. We went from a 3 to a 4, maybe 4.5. But I’d rather have the 4

We good. And hey, if we can’t needle something on an anonymous web site then what is this world coming too? Last note, I can’t always assume people know stuff. Just go look around. I’m amazed at how much is wrong. Maybe I had that autocorrect on my mind, but this article did actually make quite a few board members interpret Kalil’s money situation incorrectly.

Oh for sure. Seems like he majority did, right? I felt like you were copying and pasting your explanation (which was well done) in every thread...haha. I had a ton of conversations on social about his contract too. Actually won a $100 bet because I corrected someone and said he was going to be released. The whole “costs more to cut than keep” narrative was out of control.

Oh I’m not taking it personally at all. I’m not the author and I wanted Kalil gone.  And you know I think you’re a smart poster. That’s why it’s weird to me that you’re flexing so hard on him saying they were paying him $14.7M and thinking that he meant they owed him that additional cash. The Panthers are “paying” Kalil $4.9M this season as it relates to the cap. It doesn’t mean Marty is going to Venmo that over to Matty with a missed tackle emoji. Unless your Kalil’s wife or financial advisor why are you worried about when it hits his account? Fans are worried about the cap hit and how it relates to the team’s ability to make other moves, which is obviously what he was intending. To me it’s similar to writing a check (although the inverse since Matt already has his money). If I write you a check I still have to balance it in my checkbook even if you haven’t cashed it. I’ve still paid you even though the cash is still in my account. Matt already has his money but his dead cap affects the Panthers’ spending so for all intents and purposes he’s still being paid that this season. That’s why I said before it’s semantcis. And it is. 

Marty uses Squarecash and not Venmo, because his PayPal account was suspended after some of the contracts he handed out in his first tenure here(Charles Johnson's contract is NOT a PayPal Friends & Family transfer). Venmo is owned by PayPal, so Marty would definitely not use that product.

Please get your facts straight.

I'll wade in here, my opinions here were moot.

I thought there could be some value to keeping him around because "could we find an upgrade for the $7 million saved?"  Well, I guess we did.  I didn't think Williams would resign with the Panthers.  I'm wrong.

Drag me through the mud.

Yes. It's in the bylaws.

Member of the Riot or members of the huddle? 

Because the head of the Riot just came on and said he didn't agree with the point of the article but liked the discussion it created.

Discussion is good. I’d rather have discourse and disagreement so I see the other side. It makes us smarter. Heck, I was all over Hurney because I didn’t like his 2018 FA results and a couple of his picks and his not thinking ahead (Clay, Shepard and Bersin is not a playoff corps and you need to draft OL when you could lose 60% of your OL by the next draft). Now, I’m really happy. Mainly because I think Hurney reads the huddle and my 100 posts about cutting Kalil, Smith and Searcy to be able to sign Paradis and a FS) made an impact on him. He’ll never admit it, but that’s what the huddle did.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
