When it comes to his own employees JR is not cheap. He rewards those who are loyal to him to a fault. He's overpaid plenty Panthers. I think when people say he's cheap they're talking about the lack of free agency dollars he spends and the lack of dollars he spends on scouts and other personnel.

LOL How is Mr.Richardson cheap? Have u seen the contracts he's awarded to the players the past two years?

12 million to Olindo Mare?

Come on NJP you're an "insider" you're supposed to know these things.



Giving out stupid contracts isn't much better than being cheap.

He's a kid with a twitter account. We've read his stuff, there is no surprise he doesn't actually know anything about this franchise.

Mr. Richardson has brought one of the worst franchises in NFL history to the Carolinas.

How dare you question him!

Truth is, he is an out of touch fool who fields a terrible football team. I am a football fan, so I don't give a poo about his successes in business, only his success(or lack thereof) on the field.

I also hope that when we get a new owner, he will get that hideous NFL logo off our teams field.
Yes, we get it, the NFL granted us a team.
We've paid homage so how about we do what almost every other professional sports team does, and put more emphasis on the actual team.


The Panthers are not one of the worst franchises in the NFL - and their current ranking on the Forbes list is indisputable evidence of that.

I was in Akron, Ohio in May visiting with my girlfriends family. I started bitching about how the Panthers hadn't made the Playoffs in four years and they all started laughing at me. The Browns are an example of a horrible, horrible franchise and fan base.

I can't really argue w/ that but to call the man "cheap" is an inaccurate statement.

I don't see how Hurney writing up stupid contracts has to do with Jerry not being cheap. All owners are ready every season to drop some serious money to sign players. That would be a very incorrect way of judging Jerry's "cheapness". He knows he has to throw some money around. If he actually cared about how this money was being spent though, he wouldn't let Hurney write up these ridiculous contracts.

What is horrible about the Brown's fanbase? They are top notch in following their team.

Many of these comments would be different if we were 2-1 instead of 1-2.

I laugh at people that think that because someone has hundreds of millions of dollars they should be willing to take a hit of a few million. If you won the lottery and had $200MM, and all of a sudden your gardener says he wants more money, your accountant wants more money, and your property manager wants to take home 15% instead of 9, are you gonna say oh that's fine I have a ton I don't care? No, you'll say I can find another PM, accountant, and landscaper that can all do your job at a better price. Now if you get a replacement gardener and he completely fugs up your yard, then you go back to the other guy and negotiate a new rate.

JR felt like the NFL had an unsustainable business model with the NFLPA, and stuck to his guns. He felt the refs requests were absurd (they were), and so he stuck to his guns there too. Now if it turns out that the replacements poo the bed (they did) then a new market rate has been established for the old refs because you've found nobody can do their job as well as they can.

He mean worst franchises in terms of on-the-field success, not how much is in Jerry's wallet.
