Panthers owner Jerry Richardson just issued a statement on the persistent speculation about his team and the Los Angeles market.
The statement reads: “It has always been my desire that the Carolinas would be the hone of our Panthers. Nothing has changed. As someone who was born in North Carolina and live much of my life in South Carolina, I hope that there would be no doubts about my personal devotion to the Carolinas.”
All that’s really happening now is the normal leverage game you’d expect, when the former head of the NFL’s stadium committee is looking for public money to help with renovations to his stadium.
