CHARLOTTE Michael Deiter Jersey , N.C. (AP)The Panthers announced Wednesday they have signed a ”definitive agreement” to sell the team to David Tepper, the founder and president of global hedge fund Appaloosa Management.The deal is subject to NFL approval.League owners will meet next week in Atlanta, where they are expected to vote on the purchase. Since Tepper already has been vetted by the league as a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the approval process is not expected to run into any snags.The transaction is expected to close in July, the team announced.Tepper, who has been a minority owner of the Steelers since 2009, said Wednesday in a release that he’s thrilled to become the next owner of the Panthers.”I have learned a great deal about the community and the team over the past several months and look forward to becoming part of the Carolinas,” said Tepper, who was born and raised in Pittsburgh. ”I want to thank Jerry Richardson and the other Panthers partners for all they have done to establish and develop the NFL in the Carolinas. It has been a remarkable 25-year journey and I promise to build upon the Panthers’ success on the field and in the community.”Tepper has a net worth of more than $11 billion, according to Forbes.He is paying an NFL-record $2.2 billion to purchase the team, according to two people familiar with the situation. The people spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the team didn’t release the selling price of the franchise.The release didn’t mention if Tepper plans to move the team or keep it in Charlotte.Jerry Richardson, the team’s founder and only owner, abruptly announced he was selling the team last December after coming under investigation from the league for sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace.That investigation is ongoing.Richardson Daniel Jones Jersey , who rarely comments to the media, said in the release that bringing the expansion Panthers and the NFL to the Carolinas in 1993 was enormously fulfilling for him, his wife, Rosalind, and all of the team’s partners.”We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support over the last 25 years,” Richardson said. ”You have taken the Panthers into your hearts and made them part of this warm and supportive community.”Richardson has had a strong relationship with the Rooney family in Pittsburgh through the years and is familiar with Tepper.”I look forward to turning the stewardship of the Panthers over to David Tepper,” Richardson said. ”I have enjoyed getting to know him in this process and am confident that he will provide the organization with great leadership in both its football and community initiatives. I wish David and his family the very best as they enter this exciting new phase of their lives.”Tepper will have full ownership of the team. He’ll need to sell his ownership stake in the Steelers once he becomes the Panthers owner.Richardson had owned 48 percent of the franchise and the Panthers had several minority owners under the previous regime.Tepper is expected to be more outspoken that the relatively recluse Richardson, who hasn’t granted an interview with the media in more than a decade.Tepper once criticized President Donald Trump before the election, calling him ”demented, narcissistic and a scumbag.”A noted philanthropist, Tepper told CNBC’s Squawk Box the day before the presidential election that Trump ”masquerades as an angel of light, but he is the father of lies.”Tepper disputed Melania Trump’s claim that her husband was a generous, giving person in a campaign appearance. He contended Trump did not give money in the wake of some New York-area disasters.”During Sandy Dexter Lawrence Jersey , the big Sandy benefit, the big 9/11 benefit, not one dime. Not one dime! You can’t tell me this is a charitable, generous person,” Tepper said on Squawk Box in November 2016.Tepper went on to say, ”One thing I do with my wife, this is a thing called the Golden Rule. It has nothing to do with investments-nothing to do with investments. It says do unto others as you would have others do unto you. And that’s not being done with Trump – not at least on the good side. It just was a turning point. That’s my upbringing. I can’t help it. I can’t take it anymore. And when you lie about that stuff and you lie about fundamental beliefs.”— Deshaun Watson‘s mother spent years encouraging him to chase his dreams.Now that Watson has achieved one of his biggest goals of reaching the NFL, the Houston Texans quarterback is giving back to her by renovating the home he grew up in.“She is my rock, my hero,” Watson said. “She always was there giving 100 percent each and every day to try to be the best she can be to help her kids be successful.”It’s been well-documented that the Watson family received a home from Habitat For Humanity when Deshaun was 11 years old in Gainesville, Georgia. His mother still lives in that house, but now that he’s receiving NFL paychecks he decided it was time to spruce it up.His mother is a survivor of throat cancer and watching her fight through the disease made him even more determined to do something special for her.“She deserves it,” Deshaun said. “It’s been a solid home for us for … over 12 years now. (But) living room Deandre Baker Jersey , kitchen and dining area, those areas need a little touch up. Everything she went through, this is really the smallest thing I can do for her.”Watson chronicled the spiffy makeover of his mother’s living room, dining room and kitchen on an online show called “My Houzz,” which can be seen here , and used the renovation website houzz.com to plan and carry out the project.Watson worked with a contracting team he found on the website, but he selected everything for the renovation. He picked the perfect lights, the color scheme, artwork for the wall, the right bar stools and kitchen cabinet, among dozens of other additions. Watson was thrilled to learn he could add a fireplace, something his mother had long wanted.He was pleased when told there’d be no need to build a chimney because it was an electric fireplace that starts with the flip of a switch.The 23-year-old Clemson graduate got a look at the completed project before unveiling it to his mother, and he loved how everything turned out. When his mother arrived Oshane Ximines Jersey , he greeted her outside and held her hand as she closed her eyes before he led her into the fabulous upgraded space. When she opened her eyes and gazed around the room, a huge smile spread across her face. Her son’s smile was just as broad.He was right about the fireplace, too. It was one of the first things Deann commented on.“I love my fireplace,” she said. “I love it.”She walked around her renovated home with wide eyes, taking in all the beautiful changes. She was also excited to see that her microwave, which formerly took up counter space, was now built into one of the cabinets.“I never thought it would be like this,” she said. “It’s beautiful.”Watson enjoyed the challenge of leading this project, but the best moment came when he saw the joy the gift brought his mom.“I could just see it in her eyes,” Watson said. “She was very moved. Everything that she saw, she loved it. Being a son and being able to take care of your momma and help her out felt good.”

Awesome Im assuming that voting should be done based on the state of the original manuscript, but how long will we have to clean up any little changes we want to make before the print edition is prepared? Come to think of it, will there still BE a print edition?

The suggestion that voting should be based on the state of the original manuscript is correct.
