    Panthers owner owns Cam Newton

    Carolina Panthers' Jerry Richardson to Cam Newton -- No tats, piercings - ESPN

    The owner is technically Cam Newton's boss, but I think he's taking this a little too far. I'm sure not everyone will agree with me, but this looks really nasty from a race point of view. An old, rich man from the South acting as though he owns a young black man? Sounds like the Panthers' owner wants to revive Dixie.

    He owns the team and pays him millions a year. I would say he can do whatever he wants.

    My employers at various times in my life have limited piercings, visible tattoos, hair dye colors, etc. I see absolutely no problems with this.

    Yeah, Steinbrenner made his players keep their hair short and banned facial hair. I don't see the big deal here.

    I don't know too many employers that don't have some sort of rules like that.

    Most places you can't have visible tattoos, piercings (besides ears for women), and have outlandish hair. It's called a physical appearance and dress code.

    This is another example of ESPN and other media outlets trying to make a story out of nothing.

    No it doesn't. Newton is an EMPLOYEE. And a very, very, very, very, very WELL-PAID one at that. Anyone who plays the race card here is way the hell off base.

    Re: Panthers owner owns Cam Newton

    I applaud the guy for wanting his players to have a certain appearance - especially the multi-million dollar, soon-to-be figurehead of your team.

    This day and age, the race card is rarely "on base".

    Re: Panthers owner owns Cam Newton

    See, they should have put things like this is college contract too. Auburn isn't preparing these kids for the real world.

    But seriously, MLK would be rolling over in his grave. All the sacrifices people have made for civil rights for people who were actually suffereing and now we've got people complaining that a guy getting paid millions of dollars has to follow a dress code at his job. Just another example of why anyone who takes ESPN seriously, has no mind of their own.

    I did enjoy how ESPN had the Steve Jobs story on their front page. Wonder what time they "broke" that story last night.
