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....

Any other Carolina big wigs you think would step up to the plate at that point?

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."

Jordan tried to be a GM too. He couldn't do that. It could be worse, at least the Bobcats are young. Cleveland has been around for years and still haven't won poo.

Agreed. Similar to his wanting to own a baseball franchise.

I think I have a solution.

1. Phil Knight buys the team.

2. Hires Chip Kelly.

3. ??????

4. Superbowl.

He should just sell the team now and stay on as the ever lovable janitor that doles out wisdom and advice.
