Article on Jerry Richardson's Succession Plans

131 posts in this topic

He was the first guy I thought of... Him and the NASCAR guys, but idk if I'd like that.

Not sure about that either. On the other hand, that kind of scenario would be an owners group who lets their GM do his job and run the team, the way it should be.

As long as we don't end up with a Jerry Jones/Mike Brown/Daniel Snyder sort of owner I'm fine.

This is a very big deal if you are a panthers fan outside of Cam Newton.

Most huddlers probably can't comprehend what's going on.

First of all, this article is bullshit to sell this to us better. "no no we have to pay this so after richardson sells the team the new owner won't want to move them to LA." If that were so important to him he could cut a check. Don't buy this for a second.

Regarding succession, keep in mind that there are other owners of this team, some of them with very deep pockets. I would be very surprised that if there's another majority owner, it didn't come from inside the group already owning the team.

The other, fun possibility is that someone with ties to the NFL buys in. The Panthers have been very successful within league politics bringing out their former player/owner, and richardson really love him the ties to the North East.

Unless Brad Johnson has become a millionaire and I didn't notice, there aren't really any other NC based players in a position to buy the team. CURTIS MARTIN ON THE OTHER HAND....

Jordan is made of money.

Jordan has already made the mistake of purchasing a team and running it into the ground. I don't think wants to be involved with another one, especially in a sport where he means nothing. Remember, part of the reason Jordan got the Bobcats was because of who he was. Larry Bird actually had a functioning ownership group assembled, but Jordan just smiled and got the bid.

Not only did he create arguably the worst sports team in American history, but he means nothing as a football player. It'd be a hard sell to say "yeah i couldn't do it in the sport I was best at, but I bet I could figure out a different one."
