Panthers' owner plans to sell team as National Football League vows misconduct inquiry

Panthers' owner plans to sell team as National Football League vows misconduct inquiry

Diddy's plan was not well received by all, with many commenters educating him that the Panthers are a two-state team and many expressing their support for Cam Newton and not wanting to see him get booted for Kaepernick.

This weekend news broke that Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is being investigated by the National Football League for workplace misconduct allegations. While that is incredibly hard to pull off, he may have an opportunity to join in as one of the 32 team owners now that Jerry Richardson is selling the Carolina Panthers.

"I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership". The team announced that the sale will not commence until the season ends.

The accusations made against Richardson, 81, included sexual harassment of multiple women and the use of a racial slur toward a scout who has since left the team. He has owned the Panthers since their inception and is the only current NFL owner to have played in the league.

Diddy wasted no time throwing his hat in the ring as an ownership candidate.




Kaepernick, who remains a free agent and the player credited for starting players kneeling during the national anthem as a protest to racial injustice and police brutality, said he wants to join Combs as an owner of the Panthers. He added that the team will neither begin the sale process nor entertain any inquiries until "the very last game is played". "Let's make history", Diddy wrote. Richardson then fired general manager Dave Gettleman on the eve of training camp and replaced him with former general manager Marty Hurney on an interim basis.

Richardson had previously said that the team would be sold when he died.

The Panthers are valued at 2.3billion by Forbes, and with Diddy said to be worth 820million, the hip-hop star would certainly need some help.

Hours prior to Richardson's announcement, which was shared on the team's website, NFL.com reported that the league was taking over the investigation into the allegations.
