Panthers owner under investigation for workplace misconduct

By Steve Reed, Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers founder and owner Jerry Richardson is under investigation for workplace misconduct. The team said Friday former White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles is overseeing the investigation by a Los Angeles-based law firm. Team spokesman Steven Drummond said in a release that the Panthers and the 81-year-old Richardson take these allegations very seriously and are fully committed to a full investigation and taking appropriate steps to address and remediate any misconduct. "The entire organization is fully committed to ensuring a safe, comfortable and diverse work environment where all individuals, regardless of sex, race, color, religion, gender, or sexual identity or orientation, are treated fairly and equally," Drummond said in the release. "We have work to do to achieve this goal, but we are going to meet it." Richardson was unavailable for comment. Drummond told The Associated Press because the matter is under legal review, the Panthers cannot comment publicly on the specifics of the allegations. The Panthers made the NFL aware on Friday that it has initiated an investigation into Richardson's alleged workplace misconduct. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league has no comment at this time. The investigation against the team's only owner in franchise history is being led by international law firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan, LLP, and will be overseen by Bowles, who is a minority owner. Panthers coach Ron Rivera said in a release Friday night that he has had a strong relationship with Richardson since he joined the franchise as coach in 2012. "I have enormous respect for the man, but will wait for the results of the investigation before making any judgment," Rivera said. Richardson brought NFL football to the Carolinas in 1993 when he became the first former NFL player since George Halas to own a team. The Panthers began play two years later in 1995. The Panthers have made a series of peculiar moves in the last year. Team president Danny Morrison, who was well liked in the Carolinas among had worked on the business side, abruptly resigned in February. Then, as the Panthers were preparing for training camp, Richardson unexpectedly fired general manager Dave Gettleman, who has led the team to the Super Bowl just two years ago and replaced him with former general manager Marty Hurney. The move was odd considering Carolina has made the playoffs three times in four seasons under Gettleman. Hurney did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment. Richardson, who rarely conducts interviews, never addressed the moves. Richardson was hospitalized 2008, one month after receiving a pacemaker. Richardson underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2002 and was placed on a donor waiting list for a new heart. He received the new heart on Feb. 1, 2009, and has not had any known setbacks since. He is only one of two owners to have owned a franchise since its inception. The other is Houston's Robert McNair......»»

Sports unions unveil universal declaration of player rights

By Stephen Whyno, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Leaders from the NFL, NBA, NHL and Major League Baseball players associations helped unveil a universal declaration of player rights that is designed to establish a new approach to governing sports and protecting athletes. Among the 17 articles laid out in the declaration are rights to unionize and collectively bargain, express opinions freely and receive equal pay for equal work. The declaration was made Thursday by the World Players Association, which is affiliated with 100 organizations that represent 85,000 professional athletes. "It will change the content and the terms under which sport is regulated," said Brandon Schwab, the association's executive director. "And secondly it will change the culture of sport. Sport must now be run in partnership with the players and sport must act proactively to prevent and minimize and address any adverse human rights impacts." Executive directors DeMaurice Smith of the NFL Players Association, Michele Roberts of the National Basketball Players Association, Don Fehr of the NHL Players' Association and Tony Clark of the Major League Baseball Players Association are part of the group of more than 100 unions that released the declaration. "The importance of the declaration is actually philosophically bigger than just the issue of collective bargaining," Smith said as the NFLPA hosted the gathering of 40 union representatives. "It's reminding everyone that where we start in this process is the men and women who play sports did not choose to give up the basic human rights that we would want for every worker." The launch of the universal declaration of player rights comes on the heels of Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players kneeling or sitting during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Roberts said she and members of the NBPA "full-throatedly support" the declaration that seeks to provide athletes worldwide with the type of constitutional protections that exist in the United States. The World Players Association recently negotiated a binding human rights agreement with FIFA, and Schwab said it is in talks with the International Olympic Committee to amend hosting contracts to add human rights requirements. Schwab said the declaration came about after surveys of thousands of players and in concert with human rights experts. Smith said a key piece is recognizing that human rights cannot be ignored because players put on uniforms. "We demand a respect, a certain humanity that comes with who they are before they decided to do what they decided to do," Smith said......»»
