Hedge Fund Manager Expected To Purchase Panthers For $2.2B

- Hedge-fund manager David Tepper has reached an agreement to buy the Carolina Panthers from Jerry Richardson for $2.2 billion, according to The Associated Press.

Industry experts say they expect the NFL to proceed with the investigation of Richardson regardless of the sale, which is expected to be approved by the league owners next week in Atlanta. The NFL has since taken over the investigation of Richardson. Seeing that David Tepper is well-known within the National Football League realm of ownership. Tepper reportedly kept a pair of brass testicles (affixed to a plaque reading "The Most Valuable Set of All time") in Appaloosa's office and one former employee noted that Tepper would toss breast implants around the office. He would spend time with Goldman Sachs before setting out on his own. The NBA's Houston Rockets were sold a year ago from Leslie Alexander to casino and restaurant billionaire Tilman Fertitta for $2.2 billion.

As a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 60-year-old hedge fund manager saw how the Steelers ran day-to-day operations, maintaining an impressive consistency through the years. Tepper keeps a set of brass testicles in his office, according a 2010 profile in NY magazine.

Born in 1957, he grew up in what has been described as a lower middle-class Pittsburgh neighborhood as the son of an accountant (Harry) and a public school teacher (Roberta).

A minority stakeholder in the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tepper hasn't been afraid to criticize Trump. He also has a strong philanthropy résumé, particularly in areas where he has lived.

"During Sandy, the big Sandy benefit, the big 9/11 benefit, not one dime". You can't tell me this is a charitable, giving person. His main philanthropic focus appears to be addressing hunger issues, as his foundation has donated $15 million to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey and has donated millions of dollars to Feeding America. And if you look up demented, narcissistic scumbag, you'll see my name calling Trump that.

Miami Marlins, MLB, $1.2 billion: Former Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria sold the franchise a year ago to a group led by New York businessman Bruce Sherman and former New York Yankees star Derek Jeter.

"From everything I've read about the comments from David Tepper, he doesn't seem to have any intention to move the team", said Egleston.
