In light of the comments released yesterday from Jerry:

Carolina Panthers Owner/Founder Jerry Richardson: “It has always been my desire that the Carolinas would be the home of our Panthers. Nothing has changed. As someone who was born in North Carolina and lived much of my life in South Carolina, I hope that there would be no doubts about my personal devotion to the Carolinas.”

What happens after Jerry?

I for one would love to see a Green Bay scenerio where the team goes public and sold to fans. After all, isn't there something to the tune of 65,000 PSL owners, who own said seats for life?? Anyone have any ideas of who would be next in line? One of his sons? Partners? Public?

I know he wants the team to stay in the Carolina, but the question is what about his predecessors? If they went public, I'm in....

What say you?

Look for an unkown 3rd party to come in and buy the franchise and keep it in NC. The Panthers are somehow a profitable franchise that any wealthy businessman would love to own.

Jerry is not the sole owner. He is a majority shareholder of an ownership group which includes 5 parties; 2 sons are also part of that group.

I knew there were others, but never did find out who they are. Just hoping their loyalty remains in the Carolinas.

Not sure but I think this franchise and team will be much more successful under new ownership. We can sit here and blame every player and coach that doesn't work out but at some point the finger must be pointed at the person putting these guys in place.

Well, it's scientifically proven the best franchises are ran by the fans.

What if he work for him? And he writes checks for us? Should we shy away from criticizing him and take it out on another of his employees?

I paid thousands for the right to buy seats already. Why would I pay thousands more to gain nothing?

Take the Green Bay option off the table, it would never happen. And by never, I mean never ever.

The reason the Panthers are so profitable and valuable is because they own their stadium free and clear. This is why the Panthers are one of the top 15 most valuable franchises.

Despite the fact JR would never leave the Carolina's - you would never move out of a house that is paid for to be a tenant elsewhere. The PSL deal he pulled of was epic and fans would never support this scenario again.

As an alternative to losing the thousands that you already paid? I understand that the team going public will likely never happen. But for folks like yourself who have already invested a considerable amount, wouldn't it at least behoove you to consider that over just losing it all?

In the end, I'm just hoping the new generation respects JR's wishes for the team to stay in Carolina.

Not me. Given the amount of $$ I have donated to this organization and the mediocre product they have provided for 17 years I wouldn't think twice about walking away if they asked for more $$.

My PSLs are listed at $15k total. No way in hell I even consider that.

Give me 2 years of playoff success and I might start to think about it.

As a PS, those are sunk costs. Economic decisions should never rely upon sunk costs only on prospective cash flows.
