Reid rips into the NFL...again

Recommended Posts



Problem isn’t with the athlete expressing opinions and having causes. No, the problem is with unsophisticated Joe Fan’s unwillingness to separate causes from performances for three hours on a Sunday. 

I was skeptical at first. When I met him at fan Fest, I begin to appreciate his class. Week later, Spartanburg, I stood behind him watching him patiently and kindly signing autographs for a pretty rabid group of fans. And then I saw grumpy Greg Olsen storm up the hill right behind him, barking at people to get back and continuing to tell people he only had time for one or two. 

Now, is that indicative of a man’s character? Of course not. Greg Olsen is a good man who has done great things in the community. But Eric Reed was a class act that day with the fans, and it was genuine as hell. He wasn’t there spewing hate, or agendas. He was a football player putting smiles on kids faces. I noticed this the day after, as well. 

Those kinds of things with me over pretty damn quick. And you can tell when it’s fake. I like the guy. I’m ready to roll with him and see if we can return to form in that secondary.

Then there's the game in Philly when he completely lost his cool and tried to start a fight with Malcolm Jenkins during warmups....

....unnecessary distraction.

And that’s exactly the point where I was extremely skeptical. Trust me, I feel ya. I also didn’t like how pouted in the locker room after that win. But it’s been nearly a year and I’ve decided to embrace his football acumen, while letting him exercise his freedoms as well. Not that he needs my approval, or anybody else’s for that matter.

And this is my jumping off point. Gave my take, nothing more to it from my end.

The question is where's Reid's support?

In Reid's mind the Player's Coalition is wrong, Jay-Z is wrong, Stephen A is wrong, Damien Woody is wrong....

....all those folks/organizations think Reid is wrong.

Reid & Kaep are on an island and Reid is bringing unnecessary distractions to the Carolina Football Panthers.

Well there goes the halftime shows.  They will be filled with nothing but anti-white, anti-american, anti-Trump liberals screaming social injustice in every note.  

Not to mention Country and Rock being banned from performing in the Super Bowl.

won that game. also body slammed Ertz and got me hype as hell. Should have had the game winning INT that day too. We've missed that dog mentality since Norman left. I think Reid, Boston, and Jackson can bring it this year. Talk that poo and hit em in the mouth

But see that’s the thing you’re not allowed to separate the guy on the football field from the guy off the field these days. Can’t root for a Greg Hardy who makes questionable decisions off the field but dominated on it. Can’t dislike a Reid for his bad play because if you do you’re a racist and can’t like him for his good play because if you do you hate this country.

 

All I want as a Panthers fan is for us to win the damn Super Bowl. If the whole entire team is kneeling every game and ripping the NFL and president and wouldn’t go to the White House but wins the SB I’m a damn happy man. If we suck but nobody kneels for the anthem I’m fuging pissed that we suck. It’s as simple as that. Don’t care at all about what guys do off the field as long as it doesn’t impact their play on the field or the locker room. Reid has been okay, we’ll see how this contract looks based on his play going forward but for now he’s been worth the risk of locker room impact. Even Cam had concerns about signing Reid....

The only snowflakes are the ones that use entertainment to promote a cause.  If you think the Super Bowl should be used to promote hatred for our president, our law enforcement and our country.  Than the only snowflake is in your mirror.

Just another sign our country is going to hell in a hand basket.

You're a knowledgeable poster but if you think this is going to be good for the NFL.   You're the SNOWFLAKE.

Exactly!  They should hand out rebel flags so the NFL tailgates can get up to par with the speedway infield campers.

Jay-Z is a billionaire w/o the NFL. 

This is kind of like an understatement, ironic, nonsensical, but logical as well: Billionaires like money too!

    • Lol. No merit? You have a stat that in two years has Gano’s best year ever and conveniently ignores the year that made us draft a kicker. A stat that ignores the fact that Gano missed 4 games and is hurt yet again, 3rd time in 4 seasons. It ignores the fact that Gano’s best year ever was because Rivera only let him attempt 1 50 yard FG. Rivera has taken the ball out of his hands and you want to use a stat purely based on his attempts. How about all the punts when we were in FG range? Where’s that in the capture rate? If you also can’t get that Gano cost us $3.5m each year of Butker’s contract then there’s no point. Gano’s done nothing the past three years to merit the amount of faith people put in him around here. Keeping Butker would have been a better decision for our team. Whether you consider it to have merit or not makes not difference to those of us not blind to reality. Andy Reid has faith in his kicker, our coach does not in his.
    • his run style, foot quickness, and speed, all look like cmc. probably needs work in route running but this dude is by no means a cap clone
    • he kind of just did. buffalo's D ain't no joke. and he did it with a crappy OL as well. the guy is going to be great having on the field with and spelling CMC. he's got a lethal punch, he's fast, it looks like he's got good vision, and he's got much better hands than advertised and has potential as a decent route runner.  i'm on board having this guy on the team. gives us another good weapon on offense.
