Jerry Richardson interview on the stadium renovation.

The reporter has the right to ask the question and JR has the right to not answer.

The bottom line is that our elected officials, who represent "the people" decide whether or not JR gets the money he's asking for - so if you want to go after someone, go after the elected officials since the decision is ultimately in their hands.

Plenty of large, successful business receive government subsidies in one form or another - not because they need it but because it's a question of enlightened self interest for those governments. An NFL franchise is an excellent investment for the people of Charlotte and NC as a whole, on many levels.

It's clear that JR is not as quick on his feet when presented with questions like this as he once was and that's understandable given his age and medical condition. It's part of why Danny Morrison was brought in to be the face of ownership. I'm glad JR declined to answer @ that moment rather then giving some off-the-hip response.

People should be in an uproar that only the City of Charlotte is the one taking on that small bill. It's the CAROLINA panthers not the Charlotte Panthers. The rest of the Carolinas should help out.

I think SC should kick in.

Jerry Richardson is a smart and savvy businessman. He's a poo for an NFL owner but boy is he business smart and savvy.

I respect JR as an individual. All reports indicate he is a role model on a personal level. His public persona, on the other hand, could not be much worse. He needs to just let Morrison be the business face of the franchise and stay out of sight. He does himself much more harm than good at this point.
