Mr. Scot

Should Jerry Richardson be in the War Room?

Recommended Posts

Jerry Richardson built the Panthers. That's a fact that can never be changed. And this will be the last chance he ever has to be around for a draft.

But of course there's that thing...

What message did you send by trotting out someone who's considered by a lot of the public to be a sexual harasser and a racist? In giving him a "last hurrah", do you cast a shadow over the next owner?

The NFL wants Jerry Richardson to fade from the public consciousness as soon as possible. If it were their decision, the answer would be obvious. The option likely belongs to the Panthers though, not the NFL. In fact, it sounds like the choice will be up to Richardson himself.

What would you do?

You honestly believe Tina Becker made the decision to hire Marty Hurney on her own?

I mean, technically, it's still his War Room. So it all depends on if he wants to be there or not. I have no idea...and I also don't think it's all that important. If anything, it will be a story for a day or two if he's there. What I THINK he should do is never be heard from again but that also doesn't matter.

Heh :)

Honestly though, more than one source has confirmed that Richardson is still running the show. He's just doing it via shadow puppets instead of actually showing up at the office.

Gantt made it clear that Richardson plans to go down fighting, which makes me think he probably will be in the war room.

I wouldn't exactly call his presence in the war room "trotting out."  If he was delivering the picks to the podium, maybe.

I also don't see what he can do to cast a shadow over the next owner.  He could do some things that may cause some trouble in transition, and he could create some legal and contractual hurdles, but unless he sells to a personal friend that accompanies him to Thailand regularly for "business retreats" then I don't see how he can hit the reputation of the new guy.

That's the NFL's viewpoint.

Albert Breer talked about the NFL wanting him to be gone as soon as possible. And not just gone, but forgotten.

I get the sense that if the NFL could find something like the neuralyzer from Men In Black, they'd use it to make people forget that Jerry Richardson ever existed.

Meh, doesn’t really matter to me if he’s in there or not. Everyone knows we’re getting a new owner. Honestly, if he wants to go in there for the last time, it wouldn’t bother me at all.
