I have no problem with this at all. The team just recently got down to the correct # of players, give them a few weeks to gel, leaders will make themselves noticed and once that happens pick the C.

We all say Weiss would be good as captain, how do we know he wants it. Some people dont want that responsibility.

Why does it always take the Panthers so long to pick captains? Other teams just do it, but its always a ridiculously long process with this team. Just pick someone already.

Yeah Jovanovski was here before, but it's been more than a decade already.
Booth has been here for 5.
Does that mean he automatically deserves the A because he's been here longer too?

I don't see the big deal.

The letter is overrated, anyway; it's just a letter.
Also, the captain is being picked by the team. It's not as if it's just the coach deciding or something. Maybe the team feels like this is appropriate for now. Who cares?

Let the games begin!

Is it really this hard to decide on a new captain?! They've had three months, just get it over with. Four A's is just stupid, I want a Captain NOW!

Its not bad what they're doing I think. Im sure after some games they will see who their captain is, and he will get it. As much as I want a new captain, Im ok with this. Still hoping itll be campbell or weiss in the end tho

Apparently it is. I'm glad they're taking their time with it, because (sorry Eric, but I think you're way off) the captaincy is important. Guys look to him to lead them through. Through slumps, tough games, motivation, etc.

I think it's saying something that Kopecky was given an 'A' as well.

My god.... always a huge process....... just pick a damn captain........... Lame...

After Christmas we'll see Kopecky get the C..... something stupid like that is bound to happen.

And then he's traded at the deadline... lol

Relax, we've got a ton of new players and a new coach, and everyone is still feeling each other out. It's really not that big a deal as true leaders will lead regardless of whats stitched on their jersey. It's nice that we have so many leaders period.

With all these new guys though, they really have only played together as a group for the last 1 month. Thats why its making it harder to decide on a new captain I think. Personally I rather that approach than what Deboer did with just naming McCabe the captain since he was a vet and been around a while. I'm betting by the home opener next week, the coaches and players will have a better idea of who the guy that best deserves the "C" and will be named soon enough. Really, whats the rush??

Could always be a marketing thing where they're waiting for the home opener to make the announcement.

Lack of captaincy may mean lack of leadership...

Or it may mean there is leadership coming from many players, and now it comes down to deciding which one should receive the C.

I understand the need to know your players but the longer they wait the more of a distraction this whole affair can become once they do announce.

I had that thought yesterday as well...unveil the new red jerseys for the home opener and the new team captain. Plus it gives Dineen a few games to gauge who would be most deserving of the "C"

I'm all for no captaincy. (I won't complain when Weiss or whoever gets it though)

Keep everyone humble and playing together. No 1 player is above the other.

I want every night to go like last night LOL

Exactly, trot that ginger Campbell out there with the C, tie it into "We see red" and let the Party City confetti fly!

Campbell made a great case for the c yesterday from a quarterback standpoint.

Anyone else wonder if the late announcement of captaincy is more marketing? How many saw the new commercial with the ping as if from the sub? "An old friend returns", "A new leader will emerge" or something like that, annoyed I cannot find it. But the way it was done and not showing a panther when a new leader will emerge.... hmmmm

They showed Dineen for the "leader" part.
