Carolina Panthers for sale
On Sunday I received an update from my ESPN app that Panther’s Owner Jerry Richardson is selling the Carolina Panthers. According to Sports Illustrated, there are four former Panther employees who have issues with Jerry Richardson. The Panthers employees were allowed to dress casually on Fridays. Jerry would make the Female employees turn around to look at their buts and would ask inappropriate questions. He said “Show me how you wiggle to get those jeans up. I bet you had to lay down on your bed to fit into those jeans. Did you step into those jeans or did you have to jump into them?” To make things worse He has directed a racial slur at an African-American Panthers scout. He has reached settlements with each individual and now is facing the backlash from the publish.
Diddy to own the Panthers?
There have been some new inquiries for this job opening. Surprisingly music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has posted on Social Media that he would want to buy the Panthers. Also, former Quarterback Colin Kaepernick and Golden State Warriors Point-Guard have stated their desire to partially own the Panthers. This would be a great move for the NFL that has no Minority owners. For someone like Diddy to own a Professional Football team, it would market the Panthers even more than they already are. Could this be a new start for the NFL that is desperately needed?
I would love for Diddy to own the Panthers but it will take a lot of people to come to the table to make this happen. But I expected a backlash from the Owners. Because Diddy will probably go against the principles and ideals of some of the Owners. Especially with allowing more than one minority owner in the NFL it will begin a new movement that some aren’t ready for.
