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."

This is what I've been saying. Players are trying to make things seem mean and inappropriate for PR and to gain leverage... it's an old trick.

Isn't it a little late in the game for them not to have his back?

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.

I would like to see the final result before saying that it hurts anyone, or is a poor negotiation tactic. If it works, then its a damn good negotiation tactic. And I am a fan, and so far, I haven't been hurt one bit by it. Now if there is no football next year, then I might change my mind on that, but for now, they aren't hurting me at all.

And fwiw, not a one of us know whats really going on in the negotiations. We only know the bits and pieces that the media talks about.

I'm one of the people who contribute to that $120 million, and I fully support the man. I guess it's because I actually care enough to go beyond the "he said/she said" stuff put out by Florio, Smith, and Feeley, and pay attention to stuff that the people are actually saying. You know, like how the owners aren't doing any public negotiating, and guys like Brees, who were actually there, are denying that there was disrespect.

It's a lot easier, and lazier, to just take the press reports at face value and spout off on them on an anonymous message board. It doesn't make them true though.

I agree. And if you've been around here a while, you probably know that anytime Zod and I agree on something there's probably a kernel of truth to it.

and just maybe if salaries weren't so high the ticket cost wouldn't be so high.
