Panthers interviewing Morgan, others for Assistant GM job

If that's the case then I am very disappointed, no disgusted with this.  Race is not a qualifier for anything and if that's the reason Morgan gets the job the f*ck that.  And you too if that's the way you think.

The only thing that matters he or she is the best person that fits the vision for the job, period.

Based on his bio, I'd say Cunningham is legitimately qualified regardless of other factors.

Still think Morgan has the inside track though.

I would prefer Poles as well. Familiarity is not always the way to go.

Poles isn't a candidate at this point. It's speculated that he will be, but he's not yet.

Either way though, it can be quite objectively said that Morgan has the best resumé of the bunch. Plenty of people believe he'll be a GM himself before too long.

Remember when we were supposed to be looking for an Assistant GM that was going to work under Marty Hurney for a few years and be groomed by Marty to be his replacement?

Those were good times, huh?

Let's not repeat that stupid poo again please.  Not knocking Dan's abilities at all as I love the guy.  I just want the best candidate period and when someone throws out that Rooney Rule bs I get triggered.

Why not let Fitterer determine who he wants and assume he knows more about what he wants than people looking at a list of names and coming to arbitrary conclusions?

IMO If judging by star scoring situation I'd give Dan Morgan a slight advantage because of familiarity with the team and GM. Morgan 4¹/² ⭐ and Cunningham 4 ⭐! So I'd be happy with either one as long as it stays at 2 candidates and not be between 13 candidates like it was with GM!

I hope they interview as many as they need to find the good fit.

Remeber when he actually posted here? A few clowns making fun of his concussions drove him away of course.

We always drive them away sooner or later on the huddle Greg Hardy was on here and knuckleheads ran him off too. 

Never know how much these guys would have shared if we were nice. Haters.

I hope Dan comes back, I didn't get to CheezMo's sp before it closed. People had great things to say.

    • ...Interesting article. It almost sounds like there is a high level plan that Tepper and the city share for that area. Obviously, who pays for what will be the big fight. https://www.wbtv.com/2021/07/22/records-show-charlotte-lacks-money-new-stadium/ ——————— A WBTV Investigation shows the Queen City’s capacity to contribute to stadium projects is much lower than what’s recently been agreed upon in other NFL cities. Financial records shared by city staffers during a Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board meeting show that the capacity to take on debt for major stadium construction is somewhat limited by other projects the city has already financed. ———————— “I don’t feel that the capacity is there at the moment in the existing tax structure,” District 7 Councilman Ed Driggs told WBTV Councilman and financial institution veteran Ed Driggs told WBTV he has doubts about the cities pot of money to pay for the deal. “Particularly because we have a pipeline of capital projects that will probably soak up a lot of that of existing capacity,” Driggs said. In addition to future potential projects like Discovery Place and Blumenthal Performing Arts, the city is already committed to $174 million in debt in the Convention Center fund, including more than $100 million for recent convention center upgrades. ———————- Economist Andrew Zimbalist told WBTV that deals between franchise owners and cities that look beyond a specific dollar contribution have proven more fruitful for taxpayers. “Cities are finding it more and more difficult to justify the expenditures as the prices go up in urban areas,” Zimbalist said. “What we’ll do is we’ll give you the land for the stadium. Not only that, but we’ll give you some acres around it for parking lots and we’ll give you some more acres for commercial and residential development and then you can make your money off of those other things that will help pay back.”   That’s not to dissimilar from the plan currently unfolding between Charlotte and Tepper. The City has already reached an agreement with Tepper and a developer for new soccer fields, residential units and commercial enterprises at Eastland. The city is also still negotiating with Tepper around a mixed-use/entertainment district in the area near Bank of America Stadium and the Charlotte Pipe and Foundry property, which could be crucial to the development of a future stadium. Rezoning Pipe and Foundry and using a mixed-use/entertainment district to link it with the Gateway District, home of a future transit center for Amtrak could be crucial to plans moving forward. ———————- “More likely than not, at the end of the day, for the vast majority of these deals, they should not be looked upon as a promoter for the economy,” Zimbalist said. “They’re not going to raise overall employment. They’re not going to raise per capita income, and what you want to do as a city if you want to have a sports team, whether it’s MLS, NFL or NBA or whatever it might be, try to make a deal that is financially neutral.”
    • True that but even if you trade it for later capital, better to get a return on investment. 
    • Everything tells me we are going to go short term high value as soon as free agency drops.
