A couple of people have said that.
I guess I'm in the camp that while I might find it distasteful, it wouldn't stop me from being a fan. The stuff that puts me off is real world, off-the-field stuff. As far as I know, neither McDaniels nor Caserio have any history of that.
And hey, there's a good chance Caserio is pretty pissed at his former team, so there's that.
There are a lot of factors that go into the Cam decision, (salary cap, medical concerns, performance evaluations, system, etc. but here is what we know:
1. Cam is a running qb by trade and is 30.
2. Tepper made billions analyzing extreme risk and investing in promise.
3. If you make excuses for Cam but judge Kyle Allen behind that awful OL, you are probably not being objective. You are probably a hugger.
4. If you bash what Cam has done for this franchise and want him out while praising Allen, you are a hater.
Personally, I love what Cam brought to the franchise--a face, a swag, and an audience. He was superman and his dabbing swept across the nation like wildfire. We finally had fans loving or hating the Panthers--not indifferent about them--that is insulting.
He also brought inconsistency in his play and his leadership. He never developed into that kind of QB who who could play until age 35-40. He was instinctive, and a great athlete relies on what made him great---you cannot fault him for that when he was not given the weapons he needed at WR or the protection he needed at T. That was on RR and MH.
So I suggest that you let the hedge fund manager analyze risk vs reward and invest what he thinks is going to be the right choice for the Panthers moving forward. Be loyal to the team, not the player, and you will get what is best for the Carolina Panthers, not merely one person.
