Dis­ap­pointed by what I see in Reid

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

When you’re meet­ing your new com­mu­nity for the first time you should let them know what you’re all about, what your pri­or­i­ties are.

Eric Reid did just that! He wore a T-shirt with “#IMWITHKAP” on it front and cen­ter in front of the me­dia, and hence, the com­mu­nity. Reid’s pres­ence in Char­lotte is all about pol­i­tics, not foot­ball.

Too bad he didn’t take the me­dia op­por­tu­nity to fo­cus more on how he thought he could help the Pan­thers win foot­ball games and how much he en­joyed be­ing in Char­lotte. His sole mes­sage is about so­cial in­jus­tice.

Eric, when the big­gest en­dorse­ment you get for join­ing the team comes on the Ed­i­to­rial page rather than in the Sports sec­tion, maybe it’s time to con­sider an­other line of work.

– Richard Martin, Char­lotte
