This week I sent a ranting email about the state of this franchise to feedback@panthers.nfl.com. The only response I received was an email asking for my phone number "in case they needed to contact me". This was on Monday and this morning I woke up to a phone call from Mr. Jerry Richardson himself (in Chicago for labor talks) concerning the email I had sent. Obviously I was pretty stunned but did manage to ask some of the questions I had put into the email about the franchise.

First I told him it was an honor to speak with him and I have always been and always will be a Panther fan. Throughout the conversation I realized that everything he was telling me was pretty much what we all believe already. He is cutting costs because of the labor issue and is completely thinking long term, he mentioned 20 or 30 years down the road, and from what I could get out of him he believed in going young and seeing what this team could do while at the same time not spending. I don't think he thought we would be this bad and was just hoping that we could manage with this team for this one season.

I also asked him about cutting salary but raising ticket prices. He responded by giving me information about the costs of utilities and running the stadium going up so he claims he had to. In response to the cutting salary he said we are the 11th lowest salary and to look at the Cowboys who have one of the highest but are still 1-3.

I told him that I was concerned about finally beginning to establish a real Panther fan base over these last 15 years and now running the risk of losing a lot of fans with people believing he does not care about this season or the team which he responded by saying "what do you think all those people will do when we start winning again?"

So basically I just heard it straight from the horses mouth the exact same thing most of us already knew.

I have heard of this happening too. I know that JR used to invite random PSL owners to meet with him, just to get the average fans opinion.

There's three ways to respond to this:

A) It's truth and JR apparently makes house calls
B) The poster is a liar looking for attention
C) The poster has been experimenting with some hallucinogens I would like to get a hold of

I do know JR has invited people to lunch and called people after sending feedback. Don't know why the OP would make it up.
