Owners come to defense of Panthers' Richardson

176 posts in this topic

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has become a bit of a target during recent days, but the NFL and some of his fellow owners want to make it clear - he's still very much the man they trust to run the negotiations for a new collective-bargaining agreement.

"There is no more respected owner in the league than Jerry Richardson," New York Giants co-owner John Mara said Tuesday. "In his role as the co-chair of the owners' negotiating committee, he brings integrity, the desire to always do the right thing and he has the full respect of all the owners."

Dear Mr. Mod.

Whether Richardson is working with the owners to orchestrating this persona in an attempt to intimidate the players or he's just that unsavvy during negotiations, eitherway, it's poor negotiation tactics and is only hurting the Panthers, the NFL, the players and the fans.

Thanks for the forum,

Unfortunately, I believe your sarcasm to be true and it's unfortunate that the man doesn't care what the people think, because the people are the ones who fill the stadium and pay the $55 million in tickets per year, not to mention the $120 million in PSLs and all the Panthers gear.
