49ers steal Ric “trader” Flair away from Panthers: discuss

ric flair niners

Ric Flair turned heel as far as the Carolina Panthers and their fans are concerned, and all it took was a request from Justin Smith.

The wrestling legend lives in Charlotte, and until recently the Panthers celebrated every win with “two claps and a Nature Boy.” No, really.

So when Flair came to Appleton, WI and spoke to the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night, Panthers fans were very upset.

With the 49ers playing the Panthers on Sunday, a question *naturally* follows: how many points is Ric Flair worth to a football team? Three? Six? And is Flair’s power and influence worth points in a positive way? Meaning, is it possible that the 49ers would’ve won by a larger margin if Flair spurned them in the name of Panthers loyalty?

These are all important questions, to be sure. Here’s another:

What’s your prediction for the final score of the 49ers-Panthers game?

Either let us know your prediction — and/or share your thoughts on the Nature Boy — and you’re entered to win a Pizza + Champagne Party for 20 people, catered by the good folks at Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria. I’ll pick a winner on Friday.

Also … this is probably a good time to let you know that we’re having a BASG Meet-up on Sunday morning at Northstar Cafe (click here for details). Amici’s will provide pizza for everyone at halftime, because they’re always on your side. Definitely not “traders,” no sir.

27-17 panthers get a garbage time TD to make the score respectable…

Flair does a night before speech again then rips his shirt off to reveal a Panthers t-shirt and yells “Woooo”! The Niners are shocked. Then suddenly over the speakers: “I am a real American/ fight for the rights of every man”, Hulk Hogan comes in running, body slams The Nature Boy, jumps on top of a table and does a leg drop.
Niners win the next day.

BASportsGuy It’s a swerve. He’s going to turn heel on the Niners just like he used to do to Sting.

Considering that Panther fans can’t use the proper word with the proper context (It’s t-r-a-i-t-o-r NOT trader!) I’d have ditched my local team too.

A more important question is: can ANYONE in Carolina spell traitor?  Or do they think he went to Wall Street after the game?

@ElbowDrop9 BASportsGuy That was my thought exactly…could he and the Panthers be setting the 49ers up for a double-crossing like he used to pull on Sting all the time?

He is still, afterall, “The Dirtiest Player in the Game”

@bayareasportsguy – My nature boy style prediction is a 49ers 38, Carolina 17 final score with a double topping of Wooooooo!
The Nature Boy flipped the Carolina Panthers to the floor coming from their turf to pep talk the 49ers into victory and Steve Smith’s ire and dismay of the Panthers and..
Like all WWE fans, we like to root for the baddest dude, and I think Ric Flair #wooooo49ers! just did, for Justin Smith’s 49ers!
And like my comment, Ric Flair’s pep talk wasn’t boring either.
Wooooooo!!! KEEP Steve Smith’s head pinned to the mat!

I don’t get it. What is Ric Flair “trading”, playing cards, cars, cooking recipes? Oh I think I get it, do the good folks from Carolina mean traitor? Hmmm.

Loser leaves town.
A Texas Death Match.
A cage match. complete with cyclone fence material.

TSL What are the chances the turning point in the game involves someone getting smashed through the Spanish announcers’ table?
