I'd add one other thing in response to this while I'm thinking of it:

Take a quick look at my post history. I've done a fair amount of Gettleman discussion (there's a lot of stupid to be responded to) but you'll also find that at any given time, I'm engaged in several different threads on various subjects.

Now turn around and take a look at the post history of some of the negative respondents in this thread.

You'll find that with several of them, Dave Gettleman is - no exaggeration - about the only thing they ever talk about. Heck, for some, it's the only reason they even log on. They quite literally have nothing else to say.

Seriously, check that out, then come back and talk to me about obsession.

So you were counting on the people on this forum to rationally sign a pledge?  They are simply here to get off verbally in between watching porn vids.

Sure, I just checked that out and here’s my conclusion:

You’re obsessed.

Shall we take a look at the broad variety of topics you've been discussing? :thinking:

Everybody just accept the pledge to do "WHAT WE ALREADY DO ANYWAY".. After every season we assess blame give credit and Express our opinion on this team.. Its a football forum.. That's what we're here to do right??

This is the biggest hissy fit I've ever seen over nothing .. But basically what happens on a football forum already..lol 

OMG OG Abner is on a roll today...lol

i don't want to play because i want to blame ron for everything.  and i love marty.  i know he messed us up before but  that '03 run was the most magical sports season i've ever had.  even better than the phil ford tarheels - my all time favorite team, besides the '03 panthers. and i hate gettleman.  he's just an ass.  and marty's the scotch drinking guy at the end of the bar.  he actually cares about the players, that's his downfall, and i love him for it.   this is why i can't play.  not enough ron hate.

and if anyone thinks this thread is stupid i'm already planning my apology thread for my upcoming descent into madness by about week 8 or 9 if we suck.   maybe week 4.

Accept.  Last year's team was his too by my count.

 

Thats what I got when I did the math as well...

Hurney's having himself a nice off season, I'll give him that... Ive bought into that before though...

... Gettleman sucks, too bad there are only two GMs

Scot, you know I’m more of a DG guy, and thought bringing Hurney back was retarded—and Tepper keeping him was dumb too. But I will say I have overall liked Hurney’s moves so far in his second go around. I’m not a Hurney supporter, I judge all moves individually and then judge them all added up and how I think the personnel contributes to the team’s play. However I can’t say that Hurney is 100% to blame or credit for success or failure. Ron, who technically can only be fired by Tepper, can take some blame/credit and although it’s a classic excuse, health factors in as well—obviously as it relates to our most important player in Cam. We can’t control any of this so why not just sit back and root for him and the team to succeed without constantly bashing him?

It takes a village, and Ill say I don't think the team will be very successful this year, its has more to do with Cam than anything. We might have run him into the ground and will be entering his 30's. I hope he can return to passing forum.

You've probably heard me say many times that the overall result is a team effort, and I haven't changed my opinion on that. I also haven't changed my opinion that Rivera and Hurney are not a very good combination.

What I find laughable are the suggestions by some that all of Gettleman's success owes to Hurney.  This coming from the same folks who want to credit Marty for 2017 even though he wasn't around for any of the offseason. And yes, even this past season there were people trying to blame the collapse on Gettleman.

Like I said, laughable. And frankly, stupid.

That's why I say, whatever the results, Hurney is the only person to whom roster related success or failure can rightly be attributed this season. Coaching is still on Rivera obviously, but any suggestions that roster problems (or successes) could be traced back to anyone other than Marty are about as dumbass as they come.

I thought that would be a pretty easy thing to accept, but apparently not. What's hilarious too is that people are saying "oh,you just want to blame Marty" when I've also said he gets full credit for success.Maybe they're not as confident as they claim.

Or maybe some people just really want to hang on to their ability to pass the buck if the season doesn't go as planned :)

Third option...... If we win the SB this year it will be because of CAM NEWTON......

Yep. This team basically lives and dies by Cam's health. Healthy Cam = 11+ wins, injured Cam =  < 8 wins.

Hurney trained Beane.  Gettleman got hired and let Beane rise up the ranks and run drafts and perform draft trades and such. Beane leaves team, Gettleman gets fired right after. Hurney comes back. 

 

Hurney and his style never left the front office, Beane was here. Hell for all intents and purposes Beane should be the GM here in Carolina.

 

In silliness I propose that Hurney takes credit for all of it, because of Beane being here. 

 

This season just as last season rests on the health of Cam's shoulder, if he's healthy and actually back then successful season....if not well I'd imagine it would look a lot like last season.

    • 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.
