The Panthers fired head coach Frank Reich on Monday after the team dropped to 1-10 the day after in a loss on the road to the Tennessee Titans and had owner David Tepper yelling an obscenity on the way out of the locker room. That seems to have been the sign that the move was […]
The Dallas Mavericks are 11-6 on the season, and the criticisms about them being mid have already begun. Going into Tuesday’s in-season tournament game against the Houston Rockets, the Mavs had lost 3 of their last four games. They barely eked out a 121-115 win against the Rockets –mostly thanks to Luka Doncic’s 41-point performance– […]
Josh Giddey is the one under investigation, but Malika Andrews is catching all the heat on social media for a ridiculous reason.
Stephen A. Smith has entered the chat. The First Take frontman is usually on the front lines of any hot topic or sports debate, but he’s been notably quiet over Josh Giddey. The Oklahoma City Thunder guard is fighting allegations that he had an inappropriate relationship with a minor after photos with a young woman […]
Dave Tepper's press conference hasn't only been the talk here locally in Charlotte, but also the talk of the NFL, as virtually every analyst has something to say after the Panthers owner fired Frank Reich on Monday, and delivered a half-hearted press conference yesterday. Scott Fowler made headlines yesterday, after he publicly voiced his displeasure with Tepper ignoring him during the press conference, after Fowler wrote an article, stating that Tepper needs to fire himself as the owner. Another reporter, who hasn't been shy from asking Tepper the tough questions, or writing opinionated articles about Tepper, Joe Person, was on hand and started the press conference by asking if Tepper needs to re-evaluate himself, after making another hiring mistake. As Tepper was walking off the stage, Person tried to ask him about the job security of Panthers GM Scott Fitterer, to which he received no answer.

Scott Fowler has covered the Charlotte sports scene, for nearly thirty years, at the Charlotte Observer, so he knows what it's like to report on a coach getting fired, and an organization having to go through the rebuild. Especially since David Tepper became the owner of the Panthers, and brought Charlotte FC to town, as Tepper, has now fired 5 coaches between the two franchises, after firing Frank Reich on Monday. With such dysfunction, Fowler wrote a column on Monday, stating the obvious, saying nothing would change until Reich fired himself.
Shedeur Sanders’ first season as the Colorado Buffaloes’ quarterback didn’t end how he’d hoped. The team finished with a 4-8 record after getting off to an impressive 3-0 start under Coach Deion Sanders, bringing a ton of attention and celebrities to the sold-out home games. However, they went 1-8 in the weeks to follow, and Sanders couldn’t […]
We’re barely a month into the NBA season, and LeBron James’ greatness is already on display as he breaks yet another record. Last night, the Los Angeles Laker surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most minutes officially played in the NBA, with 66,298 minutes. Even more impressive is that Abdul-Jabbar’s NBA career ended in 1999 when he […]
