It has been less than two weeks since news broke that the Carolina Panthers were investigating allegations of workplace misconduct against owner Jerry Richardson.
Since then, the NFL has reportedly taken over the investigation. Details of the allegations have surfaced. Richardson has been accused of highly inappropriate comments and conduct both sexual and racial in nature.
Richardson, 81, announced soon after the various reports came to light that he would sell the team. On Sunday, he attended what could be his final Panthers home game as the team’s owner.
Because the #Panthers might take it down, here's the video of Ron Rivera breaking down the team for Mr. Richardson:
"Just remember guys this is about team, everything we do is about team, most important thing is about team, okay?"

Rivera had the players break down the postgame huddle to “Mr. Richardson.”
“Do me a favor, Mr. Richardson on three,” Rivera said. “One, two, three … ” Most, if not all, of the players responded with “Mr. Richardson.”
