I'm crafting a carefully-written letter to Jerry Richardson. What should I say?

Print out one of Alice's threads where he's showing off his shoes and foreign currencies and let him know that these are the type of people that panther fans have to put up with when we are losing. Go to the full post

If JR invited me to dinner...I don't think I'd be able to be a dick. I'd be too starstruck. I'd have to comment that RR obviously can't get it done, but I don't know how much bitching I'd be able to do. JR is genuinely a nice guy from what I can see so it would be hard to be as vehement as we are on the Huddle. Anonymity will do that...

i doubt i'll actually get an audience with him, i'm mostly just typing up something that's been years in coming (from myself as well as our fanbase collectively.) i'll leave him my contact info, so if he calls me or offers to meet me (a long shot for sure) i'll post the transcript here.

 

i'll be shocked by anything other than the company line though. jerry has made a living off of wheedling average fans into big smiles and ticket sales in spite of peddling an inferior product.

i'm taking an angle aimed at shifting perception of his priorities and social responsibility to provide a winning football team given the prevalence of it in american culture

also he's getting up there in age so i'm providing maudlin blaise pascal quotes and lines from the gladiator to give him some existential perspective

Or you can Mosaic Cosmotology him!! Wait

Mosaic Cosmopolitan Talk with him or...uh..

Myopic Catipillar speak to him...

I'd ask his mail screener how he enjoys his job.

My guess: That's the only person who's going to wind up reading it.

I wrote a letter to Danny Morrison this summer and dropped it off when I was down paying my season ticket invoice. He read it, initialed it and sent it along to JR who read it and initialed it. Danny wrote a nice response and had it scanned and emailed back to me. It was a letter complimenting one of the staff people that hosted us when my son was honorary team captain last year. I also mentioned a few concerns and offered a few suggestions. One was moving the Keep Pounding drum from the sidelines to the field pregame so the fans can actually see the person hitting the drum. Notice it was on the 20 yard line last game? I've found them to be surprisingly responsive to fans over the years. Morrison even called me once.

While I have no doubt that there are people that filter messages, my message to JR and the Panthers in 2010 was not all that carefully worded.  I pulled no punches, but I also wasn't rude, and just explained how I felt about the team and why I was concerned.

 

I have a feeling JR reads a heck of a lot of the messages he gets, based on the number of people that had the same kind of response that I got.

Just dont show the guy a pie chart with his return on investment in his NFL franchise.  Its already gone up about 300% from what I have read.

Send him my sig.  Then find the graphs from the Atlanta game, Chicago game, Tampa game, etc., etc. that looks exactly like it and send that as well.

Dont drink anything harder than my own home brew bro.   And I did catch a good bit of the game on tv,  Sunday going from the pool to my room - I even caught the cluster fug of the last 2 minutes that the Panthers played.As I said before your team has the pieces in place to be decent- your coaching staff blows balls and your qb is suspect but you have a lot of good pieces.   I dont think destroying the confidence of the young and up and coming guys by writing off this season is a good idea for the long term.
