Tepper is not JR

If that was the case then why is Tepper wanting the statue removed dufus. Try researching before ranting these zero relevance comments with no basis on anything.

Tepper is contractually obligated to leave the statue alone. He removed every other reference of Richardson in BoA though, which, why wouldn't he? If I buy a house I'm not going to keep up pictures up of the last owner. Doesn't mean I hate the guy who owned it before me. Tepper hasn't said anything about wanting it removed, only that he is contractually obligated to keep it. Only dimwit fans with no respect call for it to be removed.

Here is a fun fact for you. Most Panther fans 100% want that eyesore removed. I know Tepper was forced to keep that thing standing outside the stadium and because he was forced to keep it does not mean he cannot remove it and place in another spot away from the fans eyes (storage collecting dust) to stop the pain he has inflicted by his actions.

-More fan involvement

-Logo on the field

-Signing Reid

-Forcing Rivera to take over defense

-Parting with TD on good terms

Things he has done in months ownership, all of which are more bold moves that Richardson would have ever done.

He has not fired Rivera for a lot of reasons; this includes the uncertainty of Cam. Had Cam’s shoulder not gone to crap, this would have been a winning season and all here would be praising Cam’s best year, but would Rivera still need to go? That’s not on Rivera.  I believe Rivera has his issues he’s not going to change, his time is coming to an end and he is not the answer for the future, however this year is not the year to get rid of him.

Hurney wasn’t fired because it doesn’t make sense to force another GM to come in with a coach who will most likely be gone at the end of his contract or sooner.

Cam and Rivera tied to the hip? No. Hurney and Rivera? Absolutely.

Knee-jerk posters (have you see the forum on game day?) are mad that Tepper is not making knee-jerk reactions and instead is strategically approaching this team and in a matter of a few months (being generous) sample size as an owner, want to declare him Jerry Richardson 2.0. That is asinine. If you want to do that, he has until the year 2044 to win a super bowl to be an upgrade.   We don’t need a revolving door at head coach and with good change, timing is everything.

Sustainable, positive change from the top of the organization will initially take more time than a few months, I’d estimate 1-2 years IMO.  For any rational fan, the jury is out regarding Tepper.  Be skeptical and disagree with keeping Rivera or other decisions, but stop comparing him to JR after a few months of ownership just because he’s not reacting the same way the huddle’s fickle Madden experts are expecting him to.

Fan involvement ? Like what changed  from my seat we had less fans than past years

So Tepper waited until the season was basically over before he told him to run the defense?

And why didn’t Ron it Tepper insist Cam rest after game 8 when became obvious he couldn’t practice or throw more than 20 yards and 4 winnable games coming next?

I really would like to know which HC candidate not named Arians could do a better job than Ron(and remember, Arians has never beaten Ron). Everyone wants the next McVay(hasn’t won a playoff game yet)or someone who knows him or looks like him. 

Tepper is showing patience and will deal with Ron and Marty at the appropriate time. If you want Tepper to just blow it all up you show your ignorance of how to run a business.

100% correct.  I was angry this morning, but then I remembered why I'm stuck in a cubicle and Tepper is probably on some island somewhere watching his wife and 6 hotties scissor.

I’m not ready to hero worship the guy quite yet. I do hope he does good things here. I don’t think it’s reasonable for anybody to claim they know with certainty that he will be a great owner long-term. I think Tepper would be first to tell you that.

Now watch Bucs beat us with Arians at the helm. Hopefully it will not happen but the way this team is playing it just may give Arians his first win against RR.

This. 

Tepper would be foolish to walk in and blow the whole thing up just cause.  Watch for a year or so, learn about how everything works... then decide what he doesnt like and how to change it.  

I suspect things will operate much differently by the end of the next calendar year.

Agree with the poster - teams that make knee jerk reactions don't contend for titles.  I'm glad Tepper doesn't fire every coach and player that the Huddle wants fired because this place is pure comedy after a loss.

Most panther fans don't give fug about the statue. Now, people who don't care about Panther football but love controversy want it taken down. It's fuging statue, who gives a poo. It does not impact anyone's day or change traffic patterns.

False assumption. Yes the fans wanted it removed because of what it represented and because of all the things that had taken place with JR. It was news and was in black and white stating it when all of the things JR did took place.
