David Tepper's apparent drink tantrum says a whole lot about his Panthers tenure in one inexcusable gesture

Jan 1, 2024

The Carolina Panthers have had a terrible, terrible season from hell, and it hit a new low Sunday.

Scoring zero points in a 26-0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars — who were starting backup quarterback C.J. Beathard — as Bryce Young’s brutal rookie season comes to a near-close wasn’t the worst part of the day. Averaging 2.3 yards per play and not crossing 100 total yards until the fourth quarter also wasn’t the lowest point of the day for the Panthers.

No, in a moment of what can (at best) be described as a brief loss of control, Panthers team owner David Tepper appeared to throw a drink at a Jaguars fan who was in front of him toward the end of the game. Tepper’s Panthers have been unequivocally the worst team in the league this season, but there is no excuse for this behavior in the middle of tough times — particularly from his perch as the owner of an NFL team.
