Will we hear from/see JR any more?

Recommended Posts

After Tepper officially takes over as owner, do y’all think JR will basically be gone from the face of the earth, or will he still be around a bit?

Really curious to see how this plays out. I bet it depends on the results of the NFL investigation to a degree but I certainly wouldn’t rule out the possibility of JR being at a game here and there or even pounding the drum before one. And if we make the SB this year and even win it I feel like he would want to be involved a bit in the celebration.

Would Tepper be willing to let him in a little? Would he even want to come back or would he be too bitter? He’s certainly still attached to Hurney and Rivera a bit too. Maybe league wouldn’t let him back at all? Thoughts...?

And I don’t mean like a formal press conference or any speaking to the media, more just showing his face around the team. Zero chance of him saying anything publicly like that.

I think you'll have an easier time getting an interview with Tina Becker.

 

 

 

Or Jimmy Hoffa.

I think JR might be in the building at times, but as a guest and it won't be publicized.  I also can't imagine him no longer watching games, so it's probable that we see him on the jumbotron a lot.

Honestly, much like most business sales probably not. Any questions Tepper might have, the answer is in the building or his old board member friends from the Steelers.

Lastly, JR just sold for a large fortune, and is deemed a predator, why would he go back?

 

Would you sell your house and go back for an evening to crash on the couch?

Breer said the league was prepared to suspend him if the sale dragged on. And pretty much everyone wants that statue down.

The NFL wants him to disappear.

the only thing keeping joe paterno alive was his legacy. once that was gone he lingered a few months and went belly up. 

men like jerry die when their sandcastles wash away. i don't think he'll last the year.

That thought has occurred to me too.

Also, if I could give one message to the Panthers...

Please in the name of all that's holy, don't do anything so tone deaf as paying some kind of massive tribute to him.

Yes, he gave us the franchise, something for which he's been well honored and given much gratitude. Things are different now though, so please just keep silent in public. If you want to tell him something nice, do it privately.

Players, coaches, management and new ownership don't need any more grief over this stuff. And the NFL sure as heck doesn't want to see it.

Seems you didn’t read the post. Wasn’t talking about him speaking out but being around the team at all...

He’s being force to sell because of work place misconduct. I doubt he’ll ever be let back in the building. That would just be a bad look and pretty insensative to the employees he harassed if they did.

No, I understood, and that's my answer.

I'm pretty sure if the NFL had a neuralyzer and they could erase his memory from existence, they would.

They sure as heck don't want him showing his face around the building.

Dude, you are being a little obsessive on this subject.

The NFL has much more things to worry about than JR being an old creepy man. Matter of fact, they just washed their hands of it. This wasn't a surprise to them, and they knew well before the leak it was going to occur. Hence the quick and haste process of the team sale.

Now on your other post, there will be a tribute to him, but not right now. Most likely when he passes on. JR will not be punished by the NFL, nor will the Panthers.

The only way this turns into more than it is..... is if the legal system gets involved. Most of the plaintiffs (sucks that there are some) will receive (or received) payments and move on. Just like you.

Your bad mouthing of JR gets exhausting. WE get it. Just like Hurney haters, say your piece and move on. You are not just beating a dead horse, you are fuging it.

He'll definently be gone, never to be heard from again. I believe the NFL and most of the surrounding community would prefer it this way also. If we were to win the Superbwl I'm sure he wouldn't be invited to any celebrations, but I wouldn't be surprised if he got mailed a ring.

Oh sure, why badmouth a guy just because he harassed some women? I mean, they were probably asking for it anyway, right?

So who cares if we glorify the guy who victimized them? They're just gold diggers anyway, am I right?

(sheesh) :eyeroll:

If you've read anything written by NFL insiders over the past few months, you'd see pretty clearly that the NFL wants the image of Jerry Richardson to fade away as fast as possible.

Will they punish him or the Panthers? Unknown. The NDAs make it difficult. Pretty sure the guys who negotiated those agreements and didn't report them to the league though, they're gonna be looking for work soon.

Bottom Line: Any disgrace that Jerry Richardson is suffering right now, he brought on himself. He doesn't need my help.
