Just one more reason we have the league's best owner

67 posts in this topic

Funny how quickly every one forgest the 2-14 debaucle that clearly was JR's creation. And frankly he was dead wrong. He blew up the team expecting a long holdout well into the 2011 season which never happened. While all that is ancient history, he is surely not the best owner in the league and a few nice moments doesn't erase the way he gutted the team. We are still feeling the effects as we speak.

You are dead wrong, frankly.

p55 is actually right calling jr the best in the league is like a kid thinking their dad is the bestest in the whole world...

as a person he is class but from a fan's poiny of view there are owners that dont put buisness before the team.

The team has a bright future because of those very decisions. He's not infallible but he surely knows how to run any franchise better than any of the armchair self made owners of nfl teams that post here.

Most owners take some time out to do kind-hearted gestures, or anything considered charitable or humanitarian. Richardson isn't the first owner to go out of his way. If anybody in here is saying this is why Richardson is the best owner in the NFL, it's just ad hoc reasoning for their bias given the fact that he owns the team they personally hold near and dear to themselves.

I love the Panthers because I love the Panthers! Intellectually, I know that the two aren't mutually exclusive, but I can make an argument that a shareholder is a bastardized fan.

2010 was just so bad. I was pissed off at JR all season. From seeing Ravens fans overtake our stadium to watching Pickles flounder around the field, that was the worst football season I can ever remember.

THe team has a bright future because he salvaged his huge mistakes and made some great decisions like hiring Rivera and drafting Cam to go along with the boneheaded ones like not canning Fox a year earlier and hiring Rivera sooner and gutting the team and going on the cheap which then cost him ten of millions more than it would have to when he had to pay big bucks to entice players to want to play for a team that was so awful. He doesn't know how to run a franchise better than at least a half dozen owners than I could name off the top of my head starting with New England and New York and continuing with Pittsburgh and the list goes on.

Trruth is he didn't do all that much for the league as Goodell wants to blow smoke about. Richardson was playing the hardass-don't give in to the players, which was getting them nowhere. Guys like Kraft and Jones came in who actually wanted to get a deal done and worked hard to make it a win win. JR wanted to break the union not work with them. If it was up to him we still would be in a lockout. He played right into the union strategy which they would have won if it had been played out in court. He was wrong all the way around. Getting it right now hardly forgives the multitude of screw ups.

We should admire Robert Kraft then, he is doing some serious charity work with that "actress". I mean he takes her to sit courtside for Celtics games, helps her with her acting career and even protects her from this crazy dude. Deep down I like to think the JR would punch a stripper for me.

Good info for the new Carolina/Cam fans. I think all fans should really know this, the reasoning behind the most tragic, uncalled for, unessecary and flat out embarrising times in this franchise's history was almost soley because of JR, a buisness minded owner and his whole lockout bullshit. When JR goes he should be remembered as a classy buisnessmen, a money man, a personal man maybe, but not a owner that was for the team if it isn't obvious already with the giant NFL symbol on the field. Everyone called him a genius for planning for the innevitable before the lockout yet nothing to hear when the result turns out wrong and his stubborness is only further exemplified.

I guess its hard to see how things went wrong and where they were going when a couple great moves are turning around the franchise, but I won't forget.

Well at least he sends out apology letters.

    • At first I didn't like the guy but he put his money where his mouth is. Gave a ton to Charity and really backed up his talk of trying to makechange. If he continues on his charitable ways thru out his NFL career I hope he stays in the NFL for years to come.
