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.

The Panthers came from behind to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and in doing so clinched a playoff berth. But a controversial decision from head coach Ron Rivera after the game has fans talking:

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.”
