Pretty big news. This moved fast. Richardson must know he's ****ed.
Must purely coincidental. Purely.
i dont want to speculate or speak without proof but wouldnt this kind of signal richardson did commit the sexual violations?
These days sexual assault allegations are a death sentence (ask Weinstein & Spacey) so I'm not shocked.
His last year running the team has been tough to begin with and at his age, youre better off collecting a billion and retiring.
Typically yes, it seems like an admission of guilt.
Especially today they reported the staff who made the accusations were given large buyouts/severances so thats a good indication he was guilty and they paid fr their silence/cooperation.
He's not getting younger and he was planning on selling the team when he died anyway. But I think this definitely accelerated things.
We have a bidder
Unless he teams up with Jay Z or some other celeb, he doesn't have the cash.
We've got an ownership group forming
I highly doubt this actually happens. In reality it will probably be some Texas or California billionaire who purchases the franchise.
Right, I am aware.
How 2017 is it that we have people out here forming an ownership group via twitter
Apparently one of the other reasons he wants to buy them is so he can sign Kapernick and have him compete with Newton for the starting job.... not sure how much of an actual competition there is going to be.
Jay Z is out; as a registered sports agent he can't have an ownership stake in any team, even if he doesn't represent NFL players.
I think a big test will be the next athlete accused. If Big Bens or Winstons allegations came out today, are they still employed?
Not with this.
Diddy Sued for Sexual Harassment by Former Chef
I didn't seriously believe Diddy or Curry had anywhere close to the money or ability to buy the team. It's probably going to be someone like Bruton Smith and co. Yay. Jerry Richardson redux.
Richardson was apparently very disappointed to learn he had to sell the whole team rather than each player individually.
Given they are star players for their teams, probably.
I'm seeing Peyton Manning's name being thrown around a lot.
Not as a majority owner mind you, but the face/operator of a consortium.
It could possibly work.
Peyton has been linked to everything, so until he decides what he wants to do, I'm gonna take it all with a grain of salt.
THEN WHAT WAS Jay Z buying a stake in the Brooklyn Nets, then?
IMO he's waiting for Amy Adams (Bud's daughter, not the actress) to sell the Titans or put some of it for sale.
Or he's waiting for Eli, I've read its a dream of the Mannings to own a team/have a stake between the 3 of them. (lol where is Archie gonna get the money for his share)
He sold his 0.30% stake when he registered as an agent.
Hoping for the sake of Panthers fans in Carolina that the team doesn't get moved when sold. That would flat out blow.
