Last week, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced he would be selling the team after workplace sexual harassment allegations surfaced, but his players and coaches have continued to support him.
Franchise QB Cam Newton spoke out publicly in support of his owner, and following yesterday’s 22-19 win over Tampa, head coach Ron Rivera and his players paid tribute to their embattled owner with a postgame locker room breakdown.
“Mr. Richardson on 3. 1, 2, 3………”
Regardless of their feelings for their owner, this isn’t probably the wisest thing to put out in the current environment, let alone to post to the team website.
Because the #Panthers might take it down, here’s the video of Ron Rivera breaking down the team for Mr. Richardson:
“Just remember guys this is about team, everything we do is about team, most important thing is about team, okay?”
