Ric Flair gets into Twitter fight with Panthers player over Falcons fandom

To get his Atlanta Falcons fired up before their NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time world champion Ric Flair gave a pep talk to the team in a Facebook video. It wasn’t on the level of elbow dropping a book or stripping down to his boxers in the middle of a wrestling ring but it was a decent promo. The issue is that Flair lives in...

Panthers DE Charles Johnson: Greg Hardy is a ‘good guy’

Sometimes, a public personality is better off just letting a controversy pass without chiming in. That’s only magnified when the controversy includes the every-growing issue of domestic violence in today’s society.

Believe it or not, one of those starters had the nerve to publicly question the approach.

Carolina Panthers’ Charles Johnson named top-10 underrated player in the NFL

Last week, I provided my annual list of the 10 most overrated players in the NFL. As expected, it caused an uproar, mostly from people who can’t take off their team-colored glasses and deal with the truth. For a good time, read the “Comments” section below the article; it’s pure gold and classic examples of denial. In the spirit of showing that it’s not all negative on...

Carolina Panthers: The (defensive) end of the (offensive) line

Minicamp is over for the Carolina Panthers and the NFL and now begins the wait for the start of training camp and with it the start of the new NFL season. In past years the wait would seem like forever as NFL teams entered into oblivion until mid-July, hidden behind doubleheaders, warming divisional races and the mid-summer classic. That’s not the case anymore. The “boys of summer”...

Andre Johnson wants out of Houston — could Carolina be a destination?

Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson wants out — at least that’s what he’s saying. Johnson doesn’t plan to attend any of the team’s offseason activities and made some comments to the Houston Chronicle that should concern Texans fans. “I just look at my career…I’ve only been to the playoffs twice. I think we’ve only had three winning seasons. I don’t think...
