Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is old school and he wants his quarterback to have a strict dress code.
In this interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose, Richardson related a conversation he had with his No. 1 draft pick Cam Newton when he commented that Newton “was dressed perfectly” and asked him if he had “any tattoos” or “any piercings?”
When Newton said no, Richardson said “we want to keep it that way.” Richardson then commented on his quarterback’s “nice haircut.”
Richardson’s comments have caused a stir and an argument as to whether owners should be dictating (or even suggesting) to grown men their choice of appearance.
And it has also sparked discussions of race and of course money. The checks that Newton receives are drawn on Richardson’s bank.
Do you think Jerry Richardson has the right to dictate what Cam newton does to his body???
