Stephen Curry, Colin Kaepernick Join Diddy's Quest For Ownership Of Carolina Panthers

It is the reason for the team going up for sale.

Rivera said he hopes the team stays in Charlotte under any new owner, where it has been since its creation in 1995. On Sunday, the National Football League said it would take over the investigation.

The NFL awarded Richardson, a former player with the Baltimore Colts, an expansion franchise in 1993, and he has been the team's only owner.

He added that the sale of the Panthers, who joined the National Football League in 1995, would not begin until the last game of the season had been played.


With news that the Carolina Panthers are being put up for sale following an investigation into workplace harassment claims against team founder Jerry Richardson, the music mogul is ready to make his leap into professional sports. However, multiple sources told Sports Illustrated that Richardson was known to ask female employees to turn so he could admire their butts, comment on their grooming habits, and ask to personally shave their legs. Curry grew up in Charlotte. Richardson then fired general manager Dave Gettleman on the eve of training camp and replaced him with former general manager Marty Hurney on an interim basis. He once was regarded as a leading power broker among owners but has had a lower profile in recent years, perhaps in part due to health issues. The hitmaker has publicly flexed his support in seeing Puff Daddy as the NFL's first black owner. And he survived a 2009 heart transplant.

Richardson's sons, Mark and Jon, left the franchise in 2009.

The NFL has launched its own investigation in to the allegations after the team announced an internal investigation on Friday. 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. Under Article VIII of the NFL constitution, Goodell can issue charges against an owner on grounds that the owner is guilty of conduct detrimental to the league.
