Kaepernick, Stephen Curry want in on Panthers ownership

Posted December 19, 2017

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, who is being investigated for alleged workplace misconduct, announced that he'll sell the team after the 2018 season is completed. And if the allegations against Richardson are true, it's insane to openly wish for more of "those kind of men" in the NFL.

"I'm going to wait until the investigation is done before I draw any conclusions", Rivera said. Combs tweeted Sunday night.

At least in Becker's quote within the team's release there was a vague reference to the controversy swirling around Richardson. It's time for Black ownership! We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played.

Sunday was a weird day across the National Football League, and it was an especially bittersweet afternoon for the Carolina Panthers.

Richardson, who primarily works behind the scenes and rarely does interviews, is one of only two owners to have owned a franchise since its inception.

The settlements came with non-disclosure requirements forbidding the parties from discussing the details, according to the SI article written by Jon Wertheim and Viv Bernstein.

Current and former Panthers players have spoken out about the allegations. Coach Ron Rivera is having to handle the distraction with the team and will be asked about it often as the most public figure in the organization. I know he made it the old fashion way; he worked for it.

"I'm very sad", Jones told ESPN on Sunday evening. "I don't take that lightly", Quarterback Cam Newton said.

A league that, just this year, had a former NFL player file a grievance for collusion against them, an owner start an uproar for comparing his players to inmates, and has seen a drop in ratings can use the hype Diddy brings. He received a heart transplant in 2009.

Within hours of Richardson's announcement, rap star Sean "Diddy" Combs and Golden State Warriors basketball guard Stephen Curry expressed interest in buying the Panthers. But in 2016, the outlet estimated the value of the Carolina Panthers at $2.3 billion.
