Richardson Meeting With Disgruntled Panthers Over Protest Restrictions

NFL Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson today was scheduled to meet with a group of players "upset that his strongly held beliefs do not allow them to join the growing protests around the NFL." Those players are "frustrated by restrictions implemented by Richardson and concerned about possible repercussions should they speak out on social issues." Sources said that coach Ron Rivera yesterday "had a dialogue with his players on the topic" during a team meeting (CHARLOTTEOBSERVER.com, 9/26).
