Fans have supported and stood behind JR for many years. However, in 2010 he wrote off the season bc he wasn't expecting there to be a season bc of the lock out. During this season he raised ticket prices while not putting a competitive team on the field. He then allowed Hurney to over pay for many players which has hurt this franchise tremendously. Since then, he has continued to stand behind the "build through the draft" while continuing to miss in the draft. I can keep going, but I think you get the drift.

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.

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.

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.
