Screw Matt Rhule.

If you don’t know who that is, he’s the clown who got fired as the Carolina Panthers head coach on Oct. 10, 2022, after a pathetic 1-4 start. However, the man isn’t going down without a fight — I give him that — even though it’s complete BS.

Rhule has reportedly filed an arbitration lawsuit against Carolina, alleging that the organization has refused to pay him an apparent severance compensation worth around $5 million, according to CBS Sports’ Jonathan Jones.

Now head coach of the Nebraska Cornhuskers, Rhule was canned by the Panthers after that horrific 1-4 start. This is how you truly know he’s a terrible head coach (at least in terms of the NFL). After he left, the Panthers finished the season winning four out of their last six games to tally up a 7-10 record under then-interim head coach Steve Wilks.

I mean, for God’s sake, the man was a dismal 11-27 as the boss of the Carolina Panthers — a disgrace to the Queen City.

Panthers fans be like:

As you guys know, I grew up in the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia), so as a result, I was always hanging out in North Carolina, with Charlotte — the home of the Panthers — being one of my old stomping grounds. With this being the case, I have a special connection with the Cardiac Cats.

So in my blunt opinion: (bleep) Matt Rhule. (RELATED: ‘I Will Never Go Back’: Fred Warner’s Wife Sydney Said She Didn’t Feel Safe Around Philadelphia Eagles Fan Base)

The audacity of this guy to demand $5 million from Carolina knowing damn well that he caused a TON more damage to the franchise than that with that awful 11-27 record.

Go Panthers! And shout out to the Queen City! Screw this guy.
