Panthers Owner Paying For Every Single Team Employee To Go To Super Bowl, Including Interns

CHARLOTTE. NC – We all know Super Bowl appearances don’t come very often in the NFL, and Carolina Panthers team founder and owner Jerry Richardson realizes this. The last Super Bowl the Panthers were in came in 2004, where they ended up narrowly losing to the Patriots 32-29. 12 years later, they’re back, and Richardson is taking everyone with him. Literally everyone. The head man is paying for every single full-time team employee, from interns up, to go to Super Bowl 50 on February 7th. 

“Mr. Richardson understands that this memorable season would not have been possible without harmony and a complete team effort,” team president Danny Morrison told Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer. “This is not unprecedented as he also provided an opportunity for the Panthers staff to travel to the 2004 Super Bowl in Houston, Texas. It’s an incredibly gracious gift.”

We all know Super Bowl tickets don’t come cheap, reaching the thousands per seat, so although he of course has the money, a overwhelmingly gracious gesture from Richardson.

Cam shared a kiss with his boss after their NFC Championship win over the Cardinals, clearly loved by his players and by his employees? maybe just a little bit more now.

If there’s any such thing as a “home field advantage” in the Super Bowl, the Panthers may have an edge this year.

  1. This is actually incorrect. Jerry Richardson is an amazing owner, but this invitation is only to FULL TIME staff… which we all know in today’s time is very limited. So “literally everyone” is far from the truth.

      • Before you hastily respond with an admonishment to someone for not reading the article entirely (yes, that’s a paraphrase of your content), there is a contradiction between the title of the story (which is part of the story), as well as part of the body of the article, and the text that you pointed out.

        The title reads: “Panthers Owner Paying For Every Single Team Employee To Go To Super Bowl, Including Interns.” “Every single team employee” does not imply only full-time ones. And, even more misleading, is the sentence preceding the one you cited: “…and Richardson is taking everyone with him. Literally everyone.” Seriously? “Literally everyone”? Right. More like ‘figuratively everyone.’ The other poster’s point is valid.

  2. Cam Newton was wondering if they’d pay for his seat and they had to explain to him that he wouldn’t have a seat because he’d be on the field
