Fellow NFL Owners Come to the Aid of Richardson

Jerry Richardson is getting support from fellow owners, as the Charlotte Observer points out, people like John Mara are coming to his aid over comments he made that made him seem “extremely condescending,” to others around the league.

“There is no more respected owner in the league than Jerry Richardson,” New York Giants co-owner John Mara said Tuesday. “In his role as the co-chair of the owners’ negotiating committee, he brings integrity, the desire to always do the right thing and he has the full respect of all the owners.”

Richardson has been pilloried in reports citing anonymous sources and by some who weren’t even in the room during recent negotiations. Coming after an awkward January news conference, the descriptions of Richardson as combative and condescending toward players, including Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning, it hasn’t been the best season for Richardson’s public image.
