Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson Will Sell Team Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Panthers_Owner_Misconduct_Allegations_Football_05148

Then on Friday, the Panthers said they had hired lawyers to look into accusations against Richardson, the team's founding owner.

Combs returned to Twitter to announce his real intention on buying the team.

Rivera said he hopes the team stays in Charlotte under any new owner, where it has been since its creation in 1995. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league had no comment on the report.

On Sunday, the hip-hop mogul tweeted that he wanted to "make history" by buying the team, adding that "there are no majority African American NFL owners".

He announced plans to sell his principal stake after the team said it was investigating him for "workplace misconduct". We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played.

Man United are certainly interested, but there have been strong reports that Barcelona will bid if a move is possible. Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid have also been linked with the player who finished 3rd in the 2016 Ballon d'Or.

Sports Illustrated reported that investigators would be looking into allegations of sexual harassment - as well as the reported use of a racial slur - brought against Richardson.

While declining to comment on the nature of the allegations, the franchise said it was "committed to ensuring a safe, comfortable and diverse work environment where all individuals, regardless of sex, race, colour, religion, gender, or sexual identity or orientation, are treated fairly and equally". The Bills play in a much smaller market than the Panthers, whose home is Charlotte, North Carolina.

It appears the moves by Richardson and the National Football League were an attempt to preempt the fallout from a Sports Illustrated investigation, which was published on Sunday. "Not having a small stake but actually owning an National Football League team", Diddy told Bloomberg at the time. And he survived a 2009 heart transplant. Team President Danny Morrison resigned earlier this year and has not been replaced, and Jerry Richardson fired Dave Gettleman as the Panthers' general manager just before training camp and replaced him with former GM Marty Hurney.

"Did you step into those jeans or did you have to jump into them?"

The 81-year-old's decision to sell comes while he is under investigation for alleged workplace misconduct.
