Peppers rips on Charlotte

Former Panther Julius Peppers isn’t making many friends these days, as he’s now taking shots at his former town that he played in, telling the following to the Chicago Tribune:

“Truth be told, that’s really one of the small reasons that I wanted to get out; because everybody knows your business in Charlotte,” Peppers said. “I wanted to try something different because out here in Chicago, [Michael] Jordan was here. [Scottie] Pippen was here. They’ve got [Brian] Urlacher. They’ve got hockey. They’ve got the baseball. In Charlotte, it was all about the Panthers. . . .

“I live on a small town on the lake, and I mean people would get on their jet skis and just post up in front of my crib, trying to see who was there in my house.”

Wow. Seems like quite the turnaround for a guy that made his living off the town of Charlotte for quite a few years!
