Tony Elliott declines interview with Carolina

I think Tepper was being genuine in asking him to interview. If it was just to check the box he had Fewell to fulfill that. Hes also asked to interview Bieneimy and likely Shaw. Elliott may have been a long shot but you never know where that could lead. If not with us maybe an advanced position in college if not pros. 

It sounds like both Shaw and Bieniemy are highly qualified. I'm not sure I have a favorite but would not be upset at all with either if they were to impress in interviews.

Given how bad Carolina bombed with Fewell taking over? 

Tepper would catch hell pretending like that was a real interview. 

Rooney rule has a lot of good and bad elements to it

Fewell would satisfy the Rooney Rule, as would Eric Bieniemy.

I doubt this was just to check the box on that.

I think you missed my point.  Hes more than fulfilled that requirement and I don't see anything in Tepper to think he's not genuine in asking for the interview .

I guess I understand Elliotts angle too but it could help him advance his career at the least.

How has he fulfilled that requirement? 

I'm an Elliot guy.  I can see multiple reasons for him declining the interview.   Every coach isn't in a rush to just land a perceived promotion.  Big picture matters.  I think Elliot's future is in the college ranks.

    • TBH, if there's one place there should be an overabundance of humor is any conversation about the Panthers or the Hornets. Otherwise, I'd think some are just taking the game way too seriously.
    • We have one of the worst stadiums in the NFL.  Why not bulldoze it and build a real dome or something conducive to crowd noise like Seattle has?  This would just be lipstick on a pig
    • I mean, 40 year olds that grew up on other teams.....simply aren't the same as people that were passed down a team for generations in their family.  When I was kid, my favorite player was Darrell Greene.  Because my team was the Skins.  If the Panthers suck, I can just watch the NFL at large.  It is what it is.  I adopted the Panthers because they were the local team.  The Panthers and the Browns simply aren't going to have the same fanbases right now.  Shouldn't be expected.  And most of the real purchasing power is with people who didn't grow up with the Panthers.  The money isn't with a 19 year olds.  and if the Hurricanes were less successful, people wouldn't be hyping the Raleigh fanbase as much.  But I can concede that is slightly different, as hockey isn't big in the south so most in the area haven't switched over from other teams.  It's their introduction to the sport.  Which makes hockey a little unique as sport.  If you have Raleigh a random MLB team that sucked......I don't that folks could get away with claiming Raliegh fans are "built different" than Charlotte folks.
