I have never thought he was cheap barring 2010, but being cheap and not spending wisely are two different things. The second I believe was our MO for years, which I"m hoping will begin to change. Ernie, get on it.

That's a distinction a lot of folks don't get.

Honestly though, you'd have to lay a fair amount of that at Hurney's feet too.

Looks like the "Perturbed PSL Owners" are at it again...

I see no problem with the letter. JR has failed as an owner in terms of providing a winning product. He's done fine as an owner in terms of making money. Fans don't care about the second thing.

Fans don't care about the team making money all the way up until the time it moves to LA.

Welp. At least they finally defined what a "True Panther Fan" is.

A bunch of sour grapes assholes who play from the position of hindsight.

They complain about Marty Hurney, the guy who has already been fired and helped create a roster that was very competitive for several years including a Super Bowl appearance a couple of divisional championships, and a couple of NFC championship games. Oh and who had the balls to draft Cam Newton in the face of many doubters.

This is a guy who hired John Fox and Fox's tenure we had a .513 win % including going 5-3 in the playoffs. That win percentage would have been higher if the same type people that wrote this letter didn't bitch and moan until Fox had to fire a good OC in Dan Henning to hire a shitty OC in Jeff Davidson (this move in my opinion was the death nail in Fox's coffin)

Hurney has had plenty of missteps and we can go around and around about that. But he wasn't a terrible GM and had a lot of homeruns to go along with some strikeouts.

But what are they complaining about, he was fired. Do they want JR to hire him back so he can fire him again?

I love how they single out Robert Kraft as a model for winning. Good to know that all we have to do is find perhaps the best QB ever to play football and play in the AFC East against the worst collection of QBs in the NFL. That might be hard to swing.


Look, they have every right to do what they did and say whatever they want, just don't act like you are speaking for the entire fanbase.

Also put your name on it. Marty Hurney and JR don't get to say or do things behind the anonymity of made up names. You want fairness, and you want them to hold up their end of the bargain, but you won't put your name on it even as you personally call the owner out.

Maybe they won't put their name on it because they know that seeing as they are supposedly "business executives" it would open their own businesses open for scrutiny to see how great they are and to make notes that every decision they have made has turned out great.

I mean, wouldn't it be ironic if this was an executive at Bank Of America that contributed to an economic meltdown and then preaching about keeping up someone's end of the bargain and fairness, It probably isn't, but how does JR know?

Wow... I don't like where this is going. You can discuss these things in a much more respectful manner.

And that exchange between JR and the local CEO is completely unlike any and all other interactions I've heard of him having with fans. I don't really believe that, but then again, what reason do they have to lie for?

How is what they do for a living relevant? It would be nice to see affirmation that they are indeed PSL owners, but assuming that is true, their points should be evaluated based on their merits. It's not like they are lobbying for jobs, they are just speaking as customers and to some extent as investors.

They could all work at the local McDonalds, but if they are spending their hard earned money on PSL's, where they work shouldn't disqualify the message.

Still sounds like one guy claiming to speak for many when he's probably just speaking for himself.

"Everybody agrees with me in private!" :rolleyes:

So their credibility shouldn't be questioned if they are claiming to be "business executives"?

Question, has anyone here, particularly well connected in business had any similar interactions with JR?

I've never heard of anything else remotely close happening between him and someone locally. Only similar instances I know of were the labor negotiations and that is understandable.

Yes, part of me would like to know who wrote the piece and/or paid for the placement.

However, it annoys me when local journalists complain about the anonymity while they routinely cite 'unnamed sources' in their pieces. This usually means: "I'm just making this up."

The local journalists have been essentially scooped by the 'perturbed' fans. Everything in the open letter is pretty much spot on yet the beat writers have ignored all the elephants in the room the ad points out...the biggest being an owner who has totally failed to provide a consistently successful product.

For whatever reason, the beat writers who cover The Panthers are lap dogs who will not directly criticize Jerry even though he's a blatantly incompetent NFL franchise owner.

It doesn't matter who wrote the piece. Finally, a group has publicly stood up to the #1 problem: Jerry Richardson.
