you know what would be great if we corralled everybody that used the word "haters" and pushed them into a giant hole in the earth 4000 feet deep

That and "swag".

All joking aside, hes a change man when he got that new heart.

What?? That is just ridiculous...I'm really trying not to point out your ridiculous troll posts but that just takes the cake. Please explain this because I am truly baffled.

Were you seriously even around before his heart transplant?

They hate him because he has failed to live up to their expectations. They probably hate their own parents too, because they weren't born rich.

You were accidentally pie'd! No pie for you sir!

So what I'm getting from your post is you would like Richardson to take more of a role in drafting, ala Jerry Jones. Every team tries to build through the draft.

No one "hates" Richardson, they are just frustrated. If we go 10-6 next year and go deep in the playoffs everyone will forget all of this.

Actually, most would rather him not meddle in the draft and let guys that he has hired do their job. However, letting Hurney wreck havoc with those contracts after 2010 was ridiculous.

In addition, fans are frustrated that JR hasn't spoken publically at all since 2010 to tell fans what is going on and his plan. Ever since the famous pie chart talk, we haven't heard from him. Meanwhile PSL owners are required to continue paying their hard earned money during tough economic times.

I have been a big critic of JR especially in 2010 when he went on the cheap and gutted the team. But he has been the owner for 17 years and has done quite a bit right as well. We are certainly better off than the other franchise that was started at the same time, Jacksonville. I don't have a problem with people criticizing him, I have. But I prefer a balanced approach which also includes acknowledging his successes as well. And if you have to ask what those are, you are either not a long time Panthers fan or are incapable of seeing things from both sides.

I agree 100%. We are fortunate to have JR as an owner. He is a good person and I believe genuinely wants to bring a Super Bowl to Charlotte.

He took a gamble in 2010 that didn't pay off and is now suffering the fall out.

Without JR, the Carolinas would probably never have had an NFL team. I remember the days before the Panthers were here....we had no home team and everyone just followed their favorite team (Redskins, Cowboys, Steelers, Bears or whoever). I don't want to go back to that. It's a lot better having a home team...Just imagine how you would feel if there is no longer an NFL team in the Carolinas. What team would you follow?

Yes, I am disappointed that the Panthers are not winning but I appreciate that we have a 'home team'. I am also confident that now the Panthers finally have a franchise QB that they will start winning. Nobody can consistently win in the NFL without a franchise QB. The Patriots were not a dynasty until they had Brady. The Colts did not win until they had Manning. The Packers did not win until they had Favre and Rodgers. And Cowboys have not consistenly won since they lost Aikman, and the Bills & Dolphins have not won since they lost Kelly & Marino. The teams that never win (Chiefs, Raiders, Browns, Jags, Rams, and etc.....they don't have a franchise QB. As much as we all loved Jake, he was not a franchise QB and never was Beuerlein. Finding a franchise QB is not easy......but when you find one it makes a huge difference. The Panthers are on the right track, and they will start winning.

Why so many JR apologists?

Because we know deep down he's a horrible owner with the losses to back it up?

JR made his own bed for 17 seasons, he has to sleep in it. I suppose it wont be until he leaves this earth that people will feel comfortable enough to speak on how bad a owner he is. I'm sure he's a pleasant guy but NFL owner he's at the bottom of the food chain.

Mr. Richardson gets criticism from myself sometimes, but keep this in perspective: without him there is no NFL team here. No panthers. Most of you would be Steeler or Cowboy fans. I think most of you are deep down anyway.
