Jerry Richardson: Carolina Panthers Owner and Entitled Old Prat

22

Deadspin reveals some leaked documents that show the Panthers turning a healthy profit of $100m in the years they were readying for the lockout, and subsequently crying financial hardship at the bargaining table. This was going on as the Panthers went 2-14 and Richardson claimed negative cashflow of $200m. All the while NFL owners were sitting on a brand new TV deal that starts in 2014 and is expected to generate even greater revenue. Of course, now Richardson wants to renovate the stadium for $300m and expects the city of Charlotte and the state of N. Carolina to pick up 2/3rds of the tab. Ugh. Anyway, it's a fascinating read and rare peek behind the NFL's financial iron curtain -- the same one that even the NFLPA could not breach. Just like the Cowboys draft board in 2010, it's one of those things you may never see again.
