With all due respect to the current Panthers beat writers with the Charlotte Observer and Gaston Gazette, Darin Gantt's coverage of the Carolina Panthers is sorely missed.
His insight, connections, wit, and skill as a sports journalist were second to none, and an asset to Panther fans and the Charlotte and Carolinas community.
Due to budget cuts by the Rock Hill Herald's parent company, McClatchy, Darin was taken off the beat to cover Winthrop University sports. While I'm certain he is welcomed to that small sliver of alumni and bored Rock Hillians (Hilliards? Hillites?) his eye for the story, analysis, and brutally honest objectivity is far too big league to waste on anything less than the big league.
We want the cream of the crop reporting on that which interests us most. Darin Gantt is good. You took him, we miss him, bring him back!
Panther fans of the world unite! Hear us McClatchy, we want Darin Gantt covering the Panthers!
