op seemingly without formal schooling

You have to love these threads where some fool who probably never made it out of a piss poor secondary education system, starts complaining about the habits and intelligence level of the owner of a multi million dollar corporation built from scratch.

I'm don't mean this as a slam on JR, but it just hit me that the man is 76 years old running a billion dollar franchise seemingly without impunity. In what other scenario would someone at such an advanced age have so much unchecked control?

I wonder, does JR still have what it takes to make the correct decisions in this fast paced, always on the clock league? Hopefully the new GM will hit the ground running and be much more than another "yes man".

would you rather have someone younger like Dan Snyder?

Because as we know................... he makes all the right decisions.

Or someone younger, like Robert Kraft, Arthur Blank, Steve Bisciotti, Jim Irsay, John Mara & Steve Tisch.....

For every Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones, there are plenty of other good business men operating their franchises successfully.

Brain surgeons vs heart surgeons

While both are quite successful and lets say they're the top in their profession it would be silly to assume just because they are tops in one they would be proficient in the other.

Jerry Richardson is a very successful businessman but as an NFL owner....he has been a failure.

Yet some still defend him because he can make a profit.

What is Jerry and the ownership groups #1 goal as owners of the Panthers?

To be a successful and profitable business. So he is very good at his job . Main objective for us fans for him is different. We want him to win pretty much at all costs.

The oldest person to serve as a Supreme Court Justice was Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., (1902-1932) who was 90 when he retired from the Court. Compared to him Jerry Richardson is still a youngster.

Yep.

He's proven that...

Amazing how a team could be as profitable as it is and only have a winning record 4 times out of 18.

Amazing "businessman"

Look if he hires Lou holtz for head coach you have an age problem.

Complaining about the owners age or potential GM hire because he has grey in his hair. Come on Jesus what a forum full of idjuts

I don't know if it's because of age or not, but we are very unfortunate to have him.
