I agree with Philly and BBB, not really surprising given the other stances he's taken.

He's old school style business man and I suspect he's a "stick it to the union" kind of owner.

I also don't find this embarrassing in any way... he may have been one of the leaders in regards to the owners position, but obviously a majority of the other owners felt the same...

meh....so was i. ball was in their court to agree to what the NFL wanted. they wanted pensions. NFL wanted something else for them. that was the sticking point...the refs wouldn't agree. when did the refs come back? when they finally agreed about the pensions. if they had done that earlier, they would have been back earlier.

you want to blame someone...blame them. they are at least just as guilty as the league for it taking so long.

keep on hating the man while they sign checks and keep the game going....which would have happened because they sure weren't going to be losing money and people sure weren't cutting back on watching nor would they have. the refs had no leverage. they should have realized it sooner.

This is entirely unsurprising. Jerry Richardson plays hardball when it comes to business issues. You may be 'disappointed' by it now, but without JR's determination, Charlotte would likely not have a professional football team

I just want JR to put his head and heart in this franchise. He wants to be like Rooney over in Pittsburgh. Then hire a resonable GM and get this franchise off the fuging ground.

Not much of a stretch of the imagination to realize the owner that is known for insulting Drew Brees and Peyton Manning at a labor negotiations table would also be a supporter of the referee fiasco.

JR is used to always getting his way with a bunch of low wage, fast food workers. This is how he roles.

He made you scrub the fryer with your own toothbrush didn't he?

If he put the attention to us as he did into the lockout and had the right knowledgeable people around him, you'll see a vastly different team

I wish he would dude. If somehow we became half the franchise the Steelers are I would cream my pants with happiness. Not so much for the bandwagon fans though.
