Is your opinion of Mr. Richardson starting to change?

Its called being smart with no CBA in place for next year. If I owned a team with no cap this year I would dump all the high salaries I have on my team and do NOTHING until the new CBA with the new cap and new rules were in place.

By doing that you position yourself to really stock up and rebuild when the new agreement and rules get hammered out AND you should have a very high draft pick with a new Rookie cap in place to boot. Sure fans don't like it, but its smart business for the long run of the franchise.

as much as i hate whats going on, i, and most other fans realize this. the worst part is the fact that he is purposely putting a worse product on the feild, and still raising the ticket prices. if you are going to make cuts across the board, at least dont rub it in the face of the fans by raising your ticket prices on top of it.

a good analogy would be that most of us fans have a football addiction, similar to a drug addiction, but he just watered down the hell out of his product and then decided to charge us more for it because he knows we need it, and cant get it anywhere else.

it is disrespectfull on every level. he is biting the hand that feeds him, but doesnt care one bit because he knows we love our team, and will still pay for it. the definition of the word greedy.

if he really wanted to make more money that much, there is another, more respectful way to do it. he could pour his heart soul AND money into the team, and then when the product on the feild is better, he can make more profit from the fans because we will be proud of our team and would willingly buy more of his merchandise in order to show it. not to mention all of the bandwagon fans that success will bring, making his business successful for the LONGTERM.

I don't like his way of running things this season, but I will give his plan a chance before I pass judgement.

He has been too willing to write the check to try and improve this team for me to ignore and simply say he is "al davis" level.

I think much of this is based around the cba and Fox and Hurney in the last year of their contracts.Having said that I do not understand why he did not bring in a FA in areas like wr.Our PSL and ticket holders deserve better than this.It appears on the surface that he is cleaning cap in order for a new regime to take over.Some of the crap this season makes no sense like paying Jake 12 million to go away.Why not keep him as a mentor/backup?Another question I have is trading a second round draft pick on AE knowing full well he was a project at WR.I thought they would at least use him at wildcat.How many teams give up a second for someone who is not going to contribute.

I agree with the frustration but will give him the benefit of letting it play out.I do think alot of anger should be directed at Fox and Hurney and not JR.

Mr Richarson is a hell of a dude that brought NFL to Charlotte. That in itself is an incredible feat. He's battled a major health issue on top of that. How you can jugle both of those issues at the same time is beyond me. I like him as an owner and when Fox and FKIN HURNEY are gone will be aight and the healing process will begin... I don't like the road he is currently taking but it is a business and think that it will make us stronger.

Don't like what he is doing, but he did give NC a team, so I have to respect him for that.

Personally I have not loved the direction of the team for quite some time, but I am a Panther fan, and will always be one.

This fan base sucks. You all suck. You hope he died? really? The man who INVENTED the team your crying over? Stop acting like a hurt child. We went 0-3 last season yet you all are still here. Who are you going to blame when we have a new owner and we still suck? It's a weird season so far, the Chiefs are undefeated for Gods sake, I'd advise you at least let it play out before you slit your wrists.

I won't blame the next guy, as long as he's trying to spend money and better the team. The Chiefs are undefeated because they did something we didn't do...make progress in the off-season:eek:

I don't think Ive ever seen a group of people turn on someone like this place has turned on JR.

"He should have died"?!?! WTF is wrong with you?

some of you people seriously need to reevaluate your priorities...

He should have died in 2008

Exactly. Richardson has never been the type to let this team fail, nor has he been "greedy" in the past.

If you can't see that the CBA is affecting the front office's decision making, you're blind. No Panther fan wants to acknowledge that we might be sacrificing now so as to be a better team in the future, but that's the reality of the situation. And if you look at most successful teams in the league, they are built through the draft.

I wonder if we find success in the next year or two or three if you guys will still wish Richardson dead.

If the success or failure of a football team can bring you to the point that you honestly wish a human being dead then Id say you've got football in the wrong spot on your priority list.
