NFL to sell Panthers to Clinton donor

The L in NFL stands for liberal.

The league forced Jerry Richardson to sell the Carolina Panthers, which he founded in 1993, after a Sports Illustrated article disclosed he made out-of-court settlements of lawsuitsclaiming he treated women employees inappropriately.

The league's web site reported this afternoon, "NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has zeroed in on hedge fund manager David Tepper as the best candidate to buy the team, according to multiple sources."

Tepper is a big hedge fund manager who helped raise the record $1.2 billion that Hilary spent on her failed campaign, in which she did worse than any Democratic nominee since Dukakis 30 years ago.

Reuters reported in March 2016 that Tepper was part of a wave of Fat Cat Hedge Fund managers who wanted to play kingmaker in the presidential election. They gave to Hillary and to Ted Cruz in a doomed effort to stop The Donald. Tepper later admited voting for Hillary.

Now he is joining an anti-Trump league of taxpayer-subsidized football teams that allow players to disgrace the American flag.

  1. I used to be an NFL fan, but I love and respect my country too much to keep it up.

  2. It ended forr me in the summer of 2016 when the league refused to allow Dallas to honor the 5 cops who had been assassinated and barred any symbol placement on their uniforms.

  3. Good for him. The NFL is dead. It's only that the corpse has not yet stopped twitching. The left-wing turn and kneeler controversy accelerated the coming of the end, but the head injuries issue is what killed the league.

    1. Usually a perforated Colon causes death, but in this case a possible cure would have been to perforate Colin's contract.

      It's too late now, the NFL has succumbed to the Black Death!

  4. Just the word Clinton makes the whole thing an adventure in irony.

  5. With a quarterback who suffers from delusions of grandeur to a "handsy" owner, the Panthers are doomed to the 9th Circle of Hell with this news.

    The NFL is no more.

  6. When your lawyer says, "Just settle. It's cheaper in the long run," fire him.

  7. Write-ups indicate that David Tepper is favored because he is already a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers but his bid is $400 million short of the bid tabled by Ben Navarro of Charleston, SC.

    Money is the name of the game here - not political leanings.

    1. Tepper? Wasn’t he a character in Local Hero?

  8. Maybe Colin Kaepernick can find a job after all?

  9. There's a yuuuge fly in the ointment with any offer by Tepper to buy the Panthers, because he's a minority owner of the Steelers. It poses a conflict of interest that cannot be ignored. I presume Tepper would be required to sell his interest in the Steelers in order to purchase another franchise team. That shouldn't be difficult to do. The Steelers are a solid team, always in contention, and probably a better investment than the Panthers.

    1. Yeah,according to USA Today (not the most reliable source, I know), Carolina had one of the worst 2018 drafts. But who gives a shit? Watch golf or UFC or the freakin Pro Bowlers Tour instead. You won’t get a dose of liberal indoctrination there.

  10. "The L in NFL stands for liberal."

    I figured the 'L' was the silhouette of some idiot kneeling. It sure as hell ain't the Perpendicular Pronoun.

  11. Did anyone catch the Capitals Vs. Lightning game tonight? The fastest, toughest game on earth with real men who could probably sign both the US and Canadian national anthems!
    A real game that doesn't require stopping every 4 seconds. Players must play offense and defense, hit and get hit, have hand eye coordination better than Ted Williams and do it all on 1/4 steel blade on a sheet of ice. 10 Stitches? A mere flesh wound that won't keep them from their next shift!
    Who cares about the NFL?!?! Get engaged in the Stanley Cup playoffs! Nothing more exciting .

  12. I propose the "Cherica Adams NFL Accuracy In Team Naming Law".
    You'd have the Carolina Wife Murderers, the Dallas Cokeheads, the Buffalo Failures, and the the Oakland Illiterate Swine.

  13. Thing that ticks me off is these friggin' investment managers who get rich. Where do they get their money? Oh yeah, they skim if off the top of the middle and working classes who invest in their funds through retirement accounts.

    Market correction comes though and what happens? These guys still fly around no worries in the world. Yet, Grandma and Grandpa Jones are wondering if they'll need to go back to work.

    It's not right.

  14. Jerry Richardson is a smart businessman who is getting out while the getting is good. between all the health issues (concussions, etc.) and the alienation of their core base, the NFL is sliding downhill. Jerry Richardson is smart enough to get out at the top. The sexual harassment leak is just the way he forces the other owners to allow him to see NOW.
