Rozinski

I've been saying around the forum since our season started downhill that I questioned how much JR is involved in the gameday decisions/strategy.

I even started to make another post about it in a related thread last night about Fox vs Rivera, but I'm tired of talking about it.

I started to suspect that JR is a more low-key, less visible version of Al Davis. Al was blatant, in your face, and assertive. JR is timid (when it comes to media), low-profile, and very selective about picking his shots - when to make a statement, when not to, etc.

I get the Hurney criticism, but as a fan, I don't know how many haven't already come to the same conclusion I have. Hurney is here, supposedly with "no contract." How does that happen? It happens when a guy is doing what the owner asks him. Look at what happened with Fox. All of the things we have heard coming out of the organization about everything being filtered through JR... Nothing happens without his approval. Supposedly media members have lost their jobs for their handling of Panthers material. And all of the changes over the years, especially during the Fox era and still, nothing changes. Henning, Davidson, Rivera, Chud, etc. Same blunders, same approach, same "play not to lose" mentality.

It's starts from up top with the puppet master.

That being said, I seriously wonder what a "source" could've told Rosinski that he wouldn't have already known, yet is so interesting that it is worth sharing now?

It may be all true, but I don't trust rosinski to have an unbiased view of the ownership given his history.

"Disgruntled former employee citing information from unnamed source" doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the credibility of the story for me.

I'll hear it out, but given the circumstances, a grain of salt may be in order.

The reason the Panthers can't put together a winning season is that pathetic "Build Through the Draft" philosophy. You just can't put together a solid team that way. End of story.

Of course you can.

Looks like our only option is too wait out the old mans demise.

There are so many things wrong with this.

I'll settle with pointing out that it's a really classless thing to say. I worry about Richardson but there's not a fiber in me that wants him to die.

Richardson is a business man and he knows results are what matters. 4/17 is awful.

I think it's pretty clear that Hurney is an extension of Richardson. I'm excited to hear this story.

Good ownership plays a huge role in the success of a team. Richardson can be a subpar owner and a good person at the same time.

Interesting response I got from my twitter(although we should take it with a grain of salt)..:


From me
@RosinskiBill any solid sources telling u about future plans depending on the outcome of the season?(i.e: job security of Rivera and Hurney)

From him
@Gabeking yes and a lot riding on the rest of this season

All Bill ever wanted was a ring. Got denied and shown the door. Probably still very bitter after all these years, but his take will be well worth hearing.

Crazy fanatics are losing it man. You all can't be talking about the dude dying over a sport. If 1-4 equals death then I am scared.

The story might not be what we thought it was if this is the case...

If JR isn't controlling gameday decisions, and it purely is on the GM, coaching staff, etc., and we stink it up the rest of the year, then it sucks that Joe Banner was just taken off the market...

Replacing Rozinski with Mixon is a perfect example of the mindset of this owner.

Thats true but I think Marc Ross could be an outstanding GM as well, but back on point I asked if he would reveal anymore about what he just said to me on the show and he said "can't yet" so I guess well just have to wait and see
