The rivalries are too strong to move Dallas to a new division. That wonít happen until ratings plummet or we are in the dirt.

No they wouldnít. Theyíre not fond of the Cowboys but they like having the Eagles play against them.

Even still, yes Charlotte is more in the East than Dallas, but Dallas isnít really much more South than Charlotte. And while Dallas is slightly closer to New Orleans than Charlotte, Charlotte is 2x closer than Dallas to Atlanta and Tampa. And in terms of rivalries, although itís not quite to the extent of the NFC East, I think the Panthers/Falcons/Saints in particular are developing some pretty good ones.

When I worked in TV people would make comments to me, like I had some kind of control over things. I'm not speaking strictly of people who I knew. If I was in public people would overhear conversations & feel a need to interject their opinions. I can't tell you how many strangers told me that they're rather have the Panthers in the same division & be rid of the Cowboys. I overheard plenty at the stadium, too, if l was working a game, on the broadcast team.

Wrong:

"Panthers controlling owner Jerry Richardson owns only 48 percent of the franchise. But much more than 48 percent of the team will be for sale.

According to the team, the full 100 percent of the franchiseís equity will be available, when the team is placed on the market after the 2017 season ends.

This necessarily means that, under the relevant operating agreements, Richardson has the ability to trigger a full and complete sale of the team, regardless of whether those who own the remaining 52 percent of the team donít want to sell their shares.


Full 100 percent of Panthers is for sale – ProFootballTalk

A better one than you:

In Philly? Lmao... of course you probably heard that Philly fans hate the Cowboys and it was probably at a time when the Cowboys were punking the Iggles.

No disrespect but I lived in Philly for 5 years when they were winning a ton with McNabb and I heard some of the dumbest things in the world from Philly fans. One thing about football fans. A lot of vocal fans say stupid things based on emotions and not on common sense. I wouldnít repeat half the stuff those people say because it usually makes no sense when you talk to a practical football fan.

The NFC East is one of the best divisions in football when it comes to heated rivalries. NFC South is headed down the same path. They arenít realigning those divisions until the NFL expands or contracts.

In the 40+ years that I lived there, I saw good & bad streaks for all of the teams. I can't remember a time that the Iggles fans didn't have a strong dislike of the Cowboys. It's a different dislike than the Giants. As I said before, my sister watched the Iggles fans tailgating in Charlotte on her local news. The senior anchor was here, too.

It depends on who buys the Panthers & a lot of other things. It might never happen, but it wouldn't be a bad thing if it happens.

This is ridiculous. A bunch of feminist ******* wanting a payoff. Why were these "allegations" not brought up years ago? Seems like the trend now is to go after rich white men with successful careers.

He quietly paid off 4 employees. Why would he pay them off if he was innocent?

And remember that the issues aren't limited to ones of misogyny. The more shameful mistakes he has made were based on overt racist business practices.
