  1. FYI.. @Mr. Scot's other thread...The Personal Side (for those interested) ...got moved to the Lounge.
  2. lol....who moved this? It is relevant to the main forum.
  3. I have not posted here in the past 2-3 weeks except for a couple of posts in the Lounge. Like @Mr. Scot I am about done. Have been lurking here some and reading a few posts here and there. Mr. Scot's post prompted me to post at least 1 more time. He and I have communicated some so I have been aware of what he and LCF have been going through and as always wish the best for them. As I would for anyone here. Just as someone said earlier I came here from the old Observer forum. I was “recruited” here by NanceUSMC. A great football poster from the past. I still have a message saved from him from years ago. Times were different. There were so many knowledgeable football people....quite a few of them women. I learned a lot. The nature of debate was different. I met a lot of good people. That was also back in the day when we had the Huddle tailgate. Each week someone sponsored the food and everyone gave donations so that we could buy hundreds of bicycles for Toys for Tots. ( @Zod ...would love to know the total number of bikes that were donated) We met each other and had a community. Things were different when we actually had face to face contact a few times a year. Very few of those people remain today. As the nature and quality of the “discussion” changed a lot of the good ones left. I hung around. There were still some good football posters around and there was still some good information and debate to be found. Now....it is just too different. Too many personal attacks. A good thread gets derailed by about the 3rd or 4th post. Nothing but hate and insults. There is nothing constructive or informative or clever about posting the pic of Tepper as a clown...have seen that one about a hundred times. ( By the way...I never wanted him but many here fell in love with the brass balls thing. They loved it because it was so badass. To me, that smacked of an enormous ego...no respect for others, superiority and tyrannical. The bully gets his way. I wanted the guy from SC who was a true Panther fan...that was his motivation. Tepper wanted a trophy and to be part of another rich man's club. Well, he's in the club and the team has been a mess since). Anyone can bash the team, players, and coaches. There seems to be a contest here to see who can do it the most. There is also little respect for others and way too often a lack of decency. Example...I have stayed out of the Game thread but Sunday, I pulled it up while Chandler Zavala was down...CBS kept going to commercials, would not show anything, and the Viking fans in the stands looked horrified. CBS was saying little/nothing...so I looked in the game thread in case there was someone who was listening to radio...or some other source who might have said more. What did I find? There were posters concerned and there were a couple who trashed Zavala as a player. And then there was SpecialJuan who said that Person reported Zavala would never walk again (he should be banned for a long long time for that shitt). I immediately was sorry that I gone there. Under the circumstance I expected better and got so much worse. There are some good people here but they get drowned out by the others. There are attempts to have a football discussion and I admire those who try. Maybe this is all going the way that our general society is going...not sure how to explain it but here we are. I miss what we had and wish things were different but they are not. For a while, I'll still peek in some and will check out the Lounge. It is a tough time to be a Panther fan but I've been a fan from the beginning and not going to change that.
  4. Just saw this....yes...getting better everyday and learning so much. Thanks!
  5. I would contact the BBB. Also, there is this: If you think a car dealer is breaking the rules, tell the Federal Trade Commission online or by phone: 1-877-FTC-HELP. You also can tell your state attorney general's office or local consumer protection office. If you are having trouble getting your money back...most local TV stations have a reporter that looks into these kinds of things...gets the dealer some bad publicity.
  6. Fun fact: There was never a time in Sean Payton’s career where he had lost a game being up 18 points. Payton’s streak of 72 wins after accumulating an 18-point lead was vanquished last weekend against the Washington Commanders. https://www.milehighreport.com/2023/9/21/23882751/horse-tracks-if-the-broncos-lose-to-the-dolphins-its-time-to-turn-off-the-bright-lights
  7. Interesting stat: Offensive philosophies prioritize short, precise passes, and the average air yards per attempt has been on the decline for the past four seasons. Defenses have adapted by focusing on the pass rush and coverage, pressuring quarterbacks to release the ball even earlier, thereby encouraging even shorter passes and the highest overall pressure rate since 2017. Meanwhile, personnel groupings featuring multiple wide receivers and a single running back have become more prevalent, again encouraging quicker passes to exploit favorable matchups in open space. The net result: If current numbers hold, NFL teams would average the fewest passing yards per game since 2008. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2023/09/20/nfl-picks-odds-best-bets-week-3/
  8. Just checked a couple of sports news sites...they are reporting the resignation and nothing else. Just family and personal stuff like everything is normal.
