Leaked NFL Documents: While Owner Cried Hardship, Carolina Panthers Had $112 Million Profit Over Two Years

168 posts in this topic

Deadspin's whole "this is embarrassing" claim is based on the 200 million dollar negative cash flow he mentioned during the lockout.

When he mentioned this 200 million dollar negative cash flow, HE WAS TALKING ABOUT ALL THE OWNERS COMBINED.

He was the point man on the CBA negotiations, NOT BECAUSE HIS TEAM WAS STRUGGLING TO MAKE A PROFIT, but because he's a leader among the owners and a tough negotiator who wasn't worried about hurting the players feelings.

This is an example of revisionist history at it's finest, it's pathetic.

The real irony is that this financial report was most likely the report that was presented to the city/state in part to help justify the investment the Panthers were asking for, which exposed it to being leaked. In light of that, I'm sure this report wasn't intended to brag about how much money the Panthers made, LOL.

good for you, guess you give your goods/services for cost and still make a living. most do what they like doing, some prefer to make money while doing it, some don't. people risking millions of dollars compared to people risking thousands, is a little different in why they may do it.

I do enjoy doing what I do. Yeah Jerry Richardson will always be able to pay his mortgage even if the Panthers go broke tomorrow. I would have to find a real job

LOL, the Governor made his comments about "no state money for the Panthers" at an event celebrating the relocation of the HQ of a major energy company to NC and this relocation like many others involved financial incentives from the state govt.

Pat Mac is full of poo. I'm a bobcat fan and we all know what he did for their arena as Mayor. Now he wants to play the broke card.

    • I've worked as an IT contractor for the state of Texas for the past 6 years. I do basic IT hardware support mainly supporting equipment that is a decade old and obsolete. I do stuff like requisition a new hard drive for a server and replace it. Or troubleshoot network problems. If I can't solve a problem I move the ticket up the chain. Pretty basic stuff. I'm currently studying for a CompTIA A+ certification and an MTA cert just to make my resume look better. I was given word that our contract with the state is not being renewed. It expires August 31, so I'm going to be laid off unless my company can find somewhere else for me to work. We've already laid off 10 people since this time last year and my team only has 3 people left on it. The work is drying up as the state moves more and more to virtual server technology so I'm like 99% sure I'm being let go. I'll probably get 4-5 weeks of severance and I can apply for unemployment. Austin has an insurance program for musicians I can apply for since part of my income comes from playing music. I've been trying to get a new job doing basic tech support or even call center type stuff but the jobs are either terrible, like want someone with the kind of experience I have but pay $12/ho and I won't be able to afford my rent, or they require stuff that is way over my head. I went to school for audio engineering at UNCA,. I didn't really intend on pursuing IT as a career, but music doesn't pay poo and I kind of have to go in this direction. I'm pretty depressed because I've been searching for a new job for years, and I've had interviews and whatnot, but the jobs either don't pay enough for me to leave my current position or they require stuff I don't have and/or want to pursue. I feel like I'm stuck in neutral. I'm almost 30 and I feel like my career hasn't gone anywhere and I'm going to be making just a little above entry level pay my whole life.  Anyone ever been in this situation before? How did you make your career take off, or find something you were passionate about and run with it?
