Will the madness never end? Yes, it will, April 28th, but that's a long ways away. With no CBA in place for the coming NFL season, we, as fans, are missing out on alot of good topics for conversation. Just think about all the good stuff we could be discussing if the NFL Owners and NFLPA would get their collective heads out of their derriers and get this thing done.
We could be discussing new contracts.
We could be lambasting or praising Hurney, depending on your position, for allowing "Player X" to sign with another team in free agency.
We could be discussing the new free agent signings.
We could be discussing all the free agents the Panthers really should have signed but let "Team Y" outbid them.
We could be discussing all the free agents we would have loved to sign, but they resigned with "Team Z".
We could be adding up free agents lost and free agents signed to determine how the Panthers would stand in compensatory picks.
We could be discussing the new CBA and the new salary cap.
We could be calculating how much cap space the Panthers have available.
We could be discussing how free agent "Player A" affects the starting lineup.
We could be discussing how free agent "Player A" affects the upcoming draft.
We could be discussing how free agent "Player A" just made "Player B" obsolete.
We could be discussing how bad Jimmy Clausen sucks. (My apologies, as ABC Fan Club President I am contractually obligated to mention this once per post, minimum)
All we need is for the Owners and the NFLPA to come to an agreement, and soon. The longer it takes, the less likely free agency becomes, and the less topics for discussion we, as fans, have. This constant draft talk had come full circle about 4 times already. While holding the #1 pick, the draft talk isn't going away, nor should it, but it would be nice to have something else to discuss as well.
So, what else Panthers related are we missing out on?
