Panthers send letter to PSL holders
Panthers team president Danny Morrison sent this letter to PSL holders, dated Jan. 24:
On behalf of our entire organization, thank you for your support of the Carolina Panthers and NFL Football in the Carolinas. As a PSL Owner, you are one of our best and most loyal fans, and we want to make sure you are kept up to date regarding several items for the upcoming year.
We are especially excited about the addition of Head Coach Ron Rivera. His coaching credentials, background, intensity, and vision for the team are a perfect fit for the Carolina Panthers. Coach Rivera brings new energy, schemes, and an overall plan that will build on the core of a young, aggressive team. We also are looking forward with great anticipation to the upcoming draft, which will provide an opportunity for further improvements. The next few months are sure to be an exciting time filled with plenty of conversations and debate as we prepare for the selection of the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
We also want to keep you informed about the most significant challenge that the League is facing with the Players Union. As you know, the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement - the contract between the League and the Labor Union representing the players - is set to expire March 4. Unfortunately, there has not been a lot of progress, and, while we all want an agreement, it must be one that ensures the game remains sound and strong well into the future. We will continue to do all that we can to get an agreement as soon as possible that is fair to the fans, players, and clubs.
This spring, as in years past, you will receive your 2011 Season Ticket renewal packet. Please note that ticket prices are not increasing, and you will have the opportunity to consider multiple payment plans and choose the one that works best for you. In the event that games are missed due to the CBA negotiations, full refunds will be paid for any canceled games. Specific details, information, and important dates will be explained in full inside your renewal packet in March. We have worked to make the process easy, fair, and flexible for 2011.
As we move forward, we are enthusiastic about the season ahead and the future of the team. The entire organization has a sense of renewed energy and optimism as we plan and work towards the 2011 season. Our commitment to you is stronger than ever as we strive to make your Panthers fan experience the most exciting and enjoyable possible.
Again, thank you for your continued support.
Daniel B. Morrison, Jr. President

Of course, this doesn't address what happens if games are held with replacement players.

Pittsburgh is in their 3rd Superbowl in the past 6 years. If you want to emulate Pittsburgh you are doing a horrible job at it.

I wish JR would fire both Danny M and Marty H, they don't know how to build a consistent winning team. Not all their fault though when Fox was stubborn to game plan. Adjust along develop young players.

I wish the Panthers had the Steelers owner, coaches, GM, team president etc etc. This is the only way they could win something, instead being mediocre at best.
4 winning season in 16 years in the team existence in the league is a laugher. Don't tell me that this is there committment to "winning"? Evertthing starts up front having a gm( who doesn't trade high draft picks for projects). I don't see the Steelers or Packers doing it.

Who cares. Like the letter suggests, there will be no football in 2011. Too much greed on both sides.

Calling it now...!
Green Bay Packers vs Denver Broncos
Now those are two teams with real support, from the ground up and back!

Interesting to see how things play out with all of our free agents, # 1 pick, and new coaching staff. Change was needed, and just have to wait and see if things work out for the best. No season in 2011 means another #1 draft pick in 2012. There will not be replacement player games in 2011 due to stipulation in TV contracts.

If I get a year off from going to games to get Luck with the #1 pick in the 2012 Draft I guess I'll learn to accept it....

Agreed. I would sit out an entire year to get Fairley and Luck in 2012. Let's hope greed on both sides prevails!!
