It's Official! Tepper, the man! J-Rich farewell statement!

The whole reason for selling the team was because of JR being a perv at the workplace.

That was one of the reasons, yes, but it's still not a bad thing for him to mention that he and his wife were thankful for community support over the years. It's really par for the course. It's certainly not a how-dare-he situation within the context.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I take great pride in being called garbage by someone like you. I would be way far more concerned about myself if you were on here supporting me. Hopefully you follow that piece of trash Jerry out of here as well.

You got your pound of flesh....now go away

I'm rejuvenated. I'm not going anywhere. I have waited since 1995 to cheer for this team guilt free. Next season is going to be the most enjoyable one yet. I will forever take satisfaction in Jerry never winning a Super Bowl. I'll be on here more than ever.

smile for once man. Today is a great day.

I'm also posting from NJ, so that last line is actually pretty ireelevant.

For years I have been ripped apart for trashing Jerry Richardson on here. I had to hear over and over that he was a great owner and even better guy. Well now we all know none of that is true. 

So today is a day of celebration. Today is a day to dance on his grave. I do not wish poor health on him. I don't wish death on him. All I wish is he is never associated with the Panthers again and goes away like the disgraced owner he is.

From Jourdan Rodrigue's story in the Observer (Link)

Probably nothing, but struck me kind of odd. Similarly, Bill Voth's Twitter posts on the topic is mostly just been one word responses.

Perhaps everybody's just a little nervous about the new boss.

Awkward position for these folks, so probably best to say nothing... especially till after the owners meetings when it's officially official. Answering questions about Tepper leads to discussing JJR's departure and these guys don't want to go there.

I think this is really unfair, but you're entitled to your opinion. Even his sexual harassment accuser mentioned she had seen JJR change lives with his generosity. His health failed and things went downhill quickly, but he still founded one of the most successful expansion franchises in modern pro sports history that included two SB appearances.

You're coming down pretty hard on the old man. Are you talking about his personal, professional life, or both? I mean, I didn't like the way it seemed like he tanked the franchise after the CBA, and that had terrible repercussions, but I think for the most part, he tried to do a good job bringing a championship here pre-CBA. My thing is that believe that a person's personal value system rears its head in their business, and I didn't ever fully respect Richardson after some of the things I had read about him. I have never understood the deity-like reverence that some Huddlers had for him, and I always believed that he was an egomaniacal champion of quintessential cultural aspects of the Southern tradition, including the ones steeped in notions of good ol' boy paternalism and patronizing attitudes toward cultural evolution and progression, but he isn't all bad. He is not so unlike lots of men in his position (and many who aren't), which is not to say it's not a bad thing, but it is what it is. I just hope Tepper is a genuinely better human being. If he is, I believe it will bode for a better overall team and organization.

Agree, well said.

Gantt’s final potshot. It’s sad, really. Poor guy has been clamoring for relevance for years and now he’s losing his Lex Luthor...or Superman, depending on your viewpoint.
