The Carolina Panthers have become the latest team/franchise to show us that maybe statues shouldn’t be a thing anymore / Shut Up Sipple

  • New Panthers owner Dave Tepper told reporters that the statue of Jerry Richardson, the previous Panthers owner, cannot be taken down because it is in the contract of the sale to remain standing.
  • Why is that a big deal, you ask? Richardson had reached settlements with former employees on sexual and racial components that were allegations. Joe Paterno had a statue, and Jerry Richardson, too. Both were disgraced by the end. Should we do away with statues going forward?
