What will new ownership do with the JR statue?

Recommended Posts

After having woken up to the news this morning and things evolving so quickly, do you think the statue stays or goes? With the current atmosphere sweeping every industry,  will the new ownership want this team to be associated with a previous owner accused of abuse and discrimination or wipe the slate clean?  Would it be proper to keep it standing regardless?

I hate to see the black eye that this will give the organisation as the first NFL team to have to deal with this on the ownership side of things. Team just can't catch a break ....from Caruth to this, it's been a bumpy ride. Hopefully a new start will begin a new era.

Depends on what the investigation reveals. Nothing would shock me I suppose. There s just not enough now to go by IMO.

Allegations aside, I hope they take it down because it's hideous and looks out of place.

The panthers on each side are awesome. Could cut those off and put them someplace else, like along the path to the practice field, entrance to City Hall, Heath Evan's front yard.....

But we're in the South, we cant destroy statues of horrible people because of history. 

Melt it, put it in a box and sink it to the bottom of Lake Norman.  He should never of had a statue anyway

I just don't know. He may end up being a real scumbag but he did bring the NFL to the Carolinas. At least, keep him out of the Ring of Honor.

Take that statue down, asap.     When someone(s) buys the Panthers, it will also be their responsibility to change the culture, and it starts with this stupid statue and then we can move on.    You can't change the culture of a business/franchise while everyone sees this goofy thing every day (and it was stupid and too much BEFORE this news came out).

Fun fact, the city and it’s tax payers, demand, and PSL owners have much more to do with a team being brought to a city than one single man.

Should be a statue dedicated to any of those.
