Gotta say ... this reminds us a lot of when TMZ Sports revealed racist comments made by former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling ... who sold the team after news of his scandal broke.
As for Richardson, he and some investors paid the NFL a reported $206 million in 1993 to create the Panthers as an expansion team.
