Our shiny new MLB has a couple tats if i remember correctly, everyone seems to like him enough.

but does our #5?  the face of our franchise?

I'm not really sure but I still think it's a great idea for him to grow a beard.

as it gets late in the season..a playoff beard would be epic.

Richardson always did have that old southern plantation owner vibe to me, so I can't say I'm even surprised by this lol

reading these post I'm beginning to wonder if any of you understand the business of the nfl? The Owners have a business, the atheletes are a business, and they come together to provide a service for consumers.
You do realize the NFL is considered "entertainment", right?  Hardly a "service industry".


Case in point Newton. If his response to Richardson was a big "up yours" with a verbal attack to follow, Richardson would either apologize or Newton would be starting qb for the Dolphins.
You do realize this occured in April, in a pre-draft evaluation meeting, right?  IF his attitude was "up yours", I highly doubt JR would have even allowed him to be on their draft board.

I'm a young african american male and if the owner of the team that I played for said this to me, I would be insulted. I might even go out and get one on my neck that says **CENSORED** richardson.

as long as you understand business, you know its easier to market will smith rather than lil wayne.  not sure a neck tattoo with a censored word would help your cause.

Like I said, Newton would be a Dolphin or 49er right now if he told Richardson where to take his "preferences". And if every black player boycotted playing for the panthers, Richardson wouldnt be an owner.
Yes it's a business but this is not a policy and never will be. Any other motive is personal and that's not good business which Richardson would be out of if athletes boycotted the team, followed by fans and then sponsors.
The only reason business continues as usual is because Newton sold some integrity for how every many millions he signed for and smiled like the good house puppy he is.

Mike Vick is one of the highest paid athletes in the nfl and this is after he did b.s. prison time. Even though Newton prob wont get a tattoo, it's the principle. I would have responded with "fine I'll keep the image clean and neat if you stop drinking.
After just two preseason games, Cam can walk away from the panthers and find a new deal with a new team with better talent around him and Richardson would be left looking like the racist fat pig he is. And on top of that, Newton files a discrimination lawsuit seeing as how he is a protected member of UNION.

Why JUST Cam Newton? The dude just handed out DeAngelo Williams a hefty contract and he is heavily tatted.

I understand respect and I'm not going to play for a racist bigot. It isn't company policy so why is it revelant? Oh, b/c I'm the face of the franchise? Show me where this is NFL policy while I call my agent.

just assuming here, but when the average fan thinks of the Bucs, he is gonna think of josh freeman - not blount.  same thing with the panthers.

once you understand the business aspect of it, i think you will understand the relevance of it.  and you are right, its not nfl policy - its good business.
