...front to buying the 'Cats? At least for Mark? Jon has battled cancer, as many Panther fans know, and wants to spend more time with his family. This was an expected move for some time. But Mark is a playboy, showboat type. He shocked everyone in and out of the organization with this resignation. He has long been considered the heir apparent to Jerry's throne, but perhaps there has been a falling out? The quotes in the press release were not exactly kind. Mark is a smart, savvy guy who is responsible for the Panthers excellent naming and broadcasting deals (something we need help with, right?). He's very active in his endeavors, and has money. Perhaps he is workiing with MJ? All of this is speculation, and he could just be taking a more relaxed role instead of doing day-to-day ops in prepping for taking over, but I've seen multiple people thinking on this same wavelength. Maybe Big Cat Jerry wants in on the 'Cats too? Thoughts?
