According to Deadspin, the Carolina Panthers are still showing support for their embattled owner Jerry Richardson. Following the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera asked his players to break their meeting saying “Mr. Richardson” on three.

Richardson has given up the day-to-day control of the team. He also insists that he will sell the team soon after the season after it was reported by the publication that he made sexual harassment and racist behavior towards his employees. Sports Illustrated also reported that Richardson even paid off some of the employees to keep them silent.

Rivera, in the 37-second speed, which was posted on the team’s website entitled “Watch Coach Rivera’s speech after win over Bucs,” said ‘everything we do is about team. The most important thing is about team, okay? All right, do me a favor — ‘Mr. Richardson’ on three. 1-2-3!’ Many of the players followed the coaches orders.

According to Rivera, via the Charlotte Observer, said that he endorses his owner, because he did not know ‘anything about the situation’ that caused Richardson to take a lesser role with the team for the past several days.

“What I’ve always said is I know nothing about it,” Rivera said. “I can only speak for what he has been to me and the players. And that’s why I did it.”
