Article on Jerry Richardson's Succession Plans

He's not God. And coming off our 4th straight losing campaign with him being the one constant, it should be expected. It disgusts me JR puts profit over giving fans competitive football. This is the guy that firesold his team over a work stoppage. Then turned around and raised ticket prices. Now hes shaking the city down for more money. If he won more maybe people would call out his greed as much.

pretty much this.

You're not "calling out" jackshit. You're on a goddamn message board accusing a man whose team is $16 million over the salary cap of being cheap.

You might want to look at how a salary cap works. Just because he is $16M over the cap does not mean his is paying $140M this year. Also there's a minimum that they have to spend.

Salary cap is a fixed cost. How much extra has he spent on coaches? Scouting? Dude kept his flukey Hurney as GM for how long? He's el cheapo and runs his business as such. You guys get defensive cuz you know he sucks. The best thing you can say was "he got us a team". Losing is his culture.

You might want to follow your own advice, natch. The minimum cap hasn't been enforced yet, and no matter how you work the cap, that money gets paid eventually unless you outright cut a player and accelerate his cap hit.

True, but the problem is JR dosent know when JR is gonna kick the bucket. I dont think he really cares what happens to the team when he dies. If he was willing to put forth the effort to ensure the team stays here, why wouldnt he disclose the details to us? It could only be seen a positive and help to restore some of lost faith and damage to his name he's suffered among the fanbase and community. If he cared, why would he not put everyone at ease by announcing his plan rather than saying "NFL, the team must be sold within 2 years of my passing"? Hell, he already knows that NC\SC will do whatever necessary to keep the team here...

WTF is his problem since getting the heart transplant? Ppl need to open their eyes and realize that he has changed!

JR is one of those ppl that only cares about you if he has a personal relationship with you, like the one he has with members of his organization (Olsen, 89, Jake, TD). If he dosent know you personally, he will quickly look down his nose at you like you dont deserve common respect (fans - 0 communication and providing a subpar product, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Jim Harbaugh, media).

You obviously know absolutely nothing about Jerry Richardson.

No it doesn't. If the salaries were guaranteed you might have a leg to stand on but they are not.

Salary does not equal cap hit.

Thanks for playing though

The hatred of JR by some of our "fans" is unreal. If you don't want to be "shaken down" it's simple, go outside of Mecklenburg County for your prepared food, or else head to Harris Teeter buy it and cook it yourself.

John Fox was one of the highest paid coaches in the league, Hurney kept the front office small of his own accord, and you literally are clueless if you imagine he's even remotely cheap. Have we already forgtten about the entirely new player's gym? The expanded video board? The introduction of wifi at the stadium before almost anyone else in the league was doing it? Paying his team employees during the lockout, unlike many other NFL owners who forced their staffs into unpaid furloughs?

Just because he went through one salary cap purge in preparation for the top draft pick and for what was shaping up as a nasty labor battle doesn't make him cheap.

I don't hate him as a person. I hate him as an owner of a team that I cheer for. Sorry I dont want a tax increase to renovate a billionaires private business.

If every person who attended the games would pay $35 more per ticket for 5 years he would get his $125M....you are using the escalators and jumbotrons you pay for them. And when I buy a ticket I will pay for them as well.
