No, I have a tremendous respect for JR. I've met him in person and found him to be genuine and nice. He's worked his ass off to get where he is, and has become one of the most trusted owners in the league because he deserves it.

Has it ever occurred to you how hard it must have been for him to fire his kids? He wants a winner, and has taken some pretty difficult steps to try and field one.

He's not mailing the season in, he's trying to position the team for the future. One of the byproducts of a young roster is a cheaper salary cap, and people are using that to bash him as if he's suddenly turned into an owner who cares about nothing more that money. But the facts don't bear that out.

Right now we're in the middle of the pack because of what we've committed to people we released. That's right, we're paying out money that would have actually been worth something had we not released so many players. The cheap thing to do would have been to keep a few of them and wring the last bit of value out that we could.

Instead, we are developing talent. We're the youngest roster in the league, and management thought that the talent was there to win games anyway. Well, the talent is there but the experience is not. It will be though, and when it emerges it will be there because of actions taken this year.

BTW, next year we have to sign Davis, Kalil, Williams, Marshall, and someone else that I don't feel like looking up. And I believe we will, and when we do the talk about trying to save money will dry up.

You guys who think that JR has changed or is some sort of greedy rich guy are either new to the party or weren't paying attention in the 90s. And you couldn't be more wrong about him.

Good post, although I think they may let Marshall walk. King, C. Johnson, Anderson, maybe J. Williams, plus the names you mentioned are potential UFA's who should be ranked higher on the retention list.

Charles Johnson is who I was thinking of.

Richardson is a damn good owner, and I'm proud that he's in Charlotte.

This thread has proven what I had suspected about the Huddle, and I feel sad I was right. The crude nature of this thread proves to me that most of the lame posters here have no f**kin' balls, are prolly in need of an acne treatment and show no class or sense of truth. Calling for a man's death, pain and suffering is beyond anything short of what this country has become...the amount of vile statments here would not be taken on the field to a player or a team executive...but you lame f**kers have the guts to spit this poo out on the site thinking people are as brain dead as yourselves.
Well, I take offense Zod, your site has shown rudeness is not an exception but a mind-set.
I challenged one person to show up at the field and bring any player who you can get, or any group of fans to BOA and walk up to JR and spout thi poo...but you saw the response or lack there of.
I would not sanction this poo anywhere and the fact you all let it drag on, but birch about a lame discussion about a logo is evidence of what crap shows up here.
You "death wishers" call yourselves Panther fans and call for the death or suffering of its owner are so f**king inane, I'll just say you likely belong to a sad group of trolls. Forword this thread to say Steve Smith, Beason or Brayton...see what THEY think of your poo!
Alverez...you can sponsor that tailgate on your own! Sorry but I am better than this.

I am older myself and know what you mean when you say "what this country has become" but I don't think most guys on here really wish harm on JR. They just want to get his attention and let him know they are not happy with the present state of the Panthers.

Has anyone ever discussed the possibility that he fired his kids so they can come back later untarnished by the harsh budget cuts and inevitable bad seasons that will ensue?

Anyhoo, regardless of what JR has done, the bottom line is that we have a team that is unwatchable. Can't see going to a game in person again for quite some time.

The Carolina Panthers have historically been one of the HIGHEST spending teams in the league.

For those of you who think JR is cheap and does not care about winning.....fuging MORON does not even give you justice.
