Hedge fund manager and billionaire David Tepper paid a record-breaking $2.2 billion for the Carolina Panthers football franchise, and as a vocal critic of Donald Trump, his addition to the ranks of NFL owners is raising fans’ morale — or lowering it, depending on their politics.
On Day One “Billionaire Tepper” very effectively pissed off “at least” 50% of his fan base. What can we expect on Day Two? …. Somewhere George Shinn is thinking “Even I was never THAT stoopid”.

Tepper has been vocal about his opinion of the 45th president, according to Sports Illustrated. Last month at his alma mater, Carnegie Mellon University, Tepper told a first-year business school student:
” … I did call him a demented, narcissistic scumbag. And if you look up demented, narcissistic scumbag, you’ll see my name calling Trump that. Just Google those three words.”
