ya know Fiz, with that kind of logic we should just quit working to cure Alzheimers or Cancer in people over 70 as well. I'll rely on your vast wisdom and compassion to set the guidelines.

yes bubbadawg research is very similar to a 72 year old getting an organ transplant bravo you figured it out all by yourself

without getting into a pissing contest, I will say Richardson's fan favorite status aside, Fiz does have a point.

There could very well have been people in their teens or 20s who've been on the list for over a year or so.

That said, good to hear anyway for our team's owner.

So how do you judge whom is more suitable to have their life saved? Tell me, what were the situations around the heart that he received compared to the other people who were also on the list? Grow the fug up.

I doubt he got bumped up because of who is is....those lists have some pretty strict criteria. I remember that the average wait for a heart was a lot shorter than I would have thought.

I am hoping for the best for him.

Uh, then you don't know how the world works. Haven't you ever seen John Q?

There were six people on the list according to reports, and the average wait is about 2 months which is about how long he waited. Mind you there are a lot of restrictions on what heart will go into what person so yes he was the most suitable candidate for the transplant. People like you who know how to do nothing else other than bitch and moan to troll message boards make me laugh, so entirely predictable. You run around bitching to get people upset because your life sucks so bad. Get over it.

Timing would be crucial. Typically, transplant teams have about four hours to take the heart from a donor and transplant it inside a recipient.

The new heart had to come from someone approximately the same size as Richardson, who is 6-feet-4. They must also have compatible blood types.

At the time he was placed on a waiting list, officials said he could receive a new heart immediately, or wait for years. The median wait is about two months, but it all depended on finding the right match, said Dr. Ted Frank, medical director for adult transplantation at CMC.

Six patients were awaiting a transplant in December, and one had been waiting for 3 1/2 years, hospital officials said then.

can't believe that some of you guys are arguing about whether or not he should have gotten it or if his wealth played a part. silliness.

too many factors to consider. the fact that he is 72 shouldn't play that big of a role. he could easily live another 15 years. money doesn't play much into it either but small minded people will hate just to do it.

glad he's doing well.

hope the recovery is a success.

That is not one of the criteria.

Reading the Observer article, besides matching things like blood type and body type, one of the biggest criteria is distance. The transplant has to be completed within 4 hours. So if there's a teenager in Oregon and the heart is in Virginia, it won't make it. Mr. Richardson was probably the closest matching candidate.

Channel 36 WCNC just confirmed that they heard from the Panthers team about Mr. Richardson's transplant.
