I haven't said anything worthwhile in 17k posts....sorry this is no different.

Is that the backboard the Panthers playoff hopes are carried out on every year?

Every owner that has full control over football operations their teams don't win sh*t. Look at the cowboys and Jerry Jones. A businessman can't concentrate on making money and winning championships at the same time. It will never work in professional sports

Great point.

I would say that is true in many regards except when winning is tied to profitability. In the case of the Panthers winning and profitability are completely unrelated....which is bad for the fans.

How many owners without PSL revenue could purposely tank a season and get away with it?

If Richardson would work as hard on his team as hard as he did on the strike we would be a dynasty by now.

If I had any faith in JR, this would be my perpetual state as a Panthers' fan:

Unfortunately my belief in JR as an owner/meddler/football puppeteer is more like this:

Who said Richardson had full control over football ops?

Big difference in Dallas is they don't have a separate GM because Jerry Jones is the owner and the GM.

JR just isn't overt about it. Make no mistake- the "big cat" is THE man.

I wouldn't go that far.

I think he occasionally meddles in decisions, but as far as running things completely, doubt it.

And honestly, I won't be surprised if the occasional meddling stops too now that Marty Hurney is gone. I'd be surprised if Ernie Accorsi hadn't said something to him like "you need to let the guys you hire do their jobs".

I don't know how you can think a person who has been so intricately involved in every aspect of the NFL (hell even the refs strike) would not take on the exact same role within his own franchise.

I hope his meddling stops as he has realized he is incapable of building a winning franchise. Running a business yes....but these are two completely different things.

Why reach out to Ernie Accorsi if you're just gonna do it yourself?

(and don't say for appearances; that notion is silly)
