Mr. Scot

Possible Tepper Press Conference Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

Per the Charlotte Business Journal...

Quote

A spokesman for Tepper could not be reached, but Tepper himself will likely conduct a brief press conference in Atlanta after the vote, a source close to the league said Monday. The sale is scheduled to close in July, according to the Panthers.

Tepper set to take "life altering" step as Panthers sale nears closing

Didn't confirm a presser for tomorrow but said he would talk "when he can".

Tepper actually needs only 23 votes because he'll get the vote from Jerry Richardson, who has accepted Tepper's winning bid of $2.275 billion. Whether that vote will be cast by Richardson or COO Tina Becker remains to be seen.

McNair said he didn't expect the 81-year-old Richardson to attend the meetings, but a source close to the situation said there is a chance that he'll attend. Richardson hasn't attended a league meeting since the spring meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2016.

Richardson put the team up for sale after the season amidst an NFL investigation into sexual and racial workplace misconduct. The league is expected to announce the results of the investigation after the sale is finalized, which should come in July.

So the vote should make it official sometime between 1:30 and 2:30 tomorrow afternoon.

If there's a presser, I imagine it'll be shortly after that.  Indication are also that it'll be brief.

WSOC scored an "interview" if you can call it that.

Presumptive Panthers owner speaks exclusively to Channel 9

Not exactly a lot to it, but the one thing you can get from it is that Tepper was trying to tone down his language for the speech. Hence, answers like "pretty fricking great".  I suspect he'll try to keep his public statements as Panthers owner relatively profanity free.

I also suspect he'll fail a lot at that.
