It didn't take long after John Schattner resigned the Louisville BOT for using a racial slur in a magazine interview came out this week. All traces of "Papa Johns" are being removed from the Football stadium carrying His company name He founded and had naming rights since the stadium opened. He even admitted there is no place for racist remarks when He resigned.

What about KFC YUM! Center? Colonel Sanders said ni- oh, wait, almost got me!
Yes. And that is what Shattner said, that the Colonel didn't get as much pushback for calling Black people "n_____."

Its just a really stupid overreaction.

Shattner should get his $20 million or so back plus interest.
Incredibly immature statement by Papa J.

I'd get it if he's a 1950's pizza delivery boy, not a 2010's pizza executive.
Has been a weird last 12 months for Louisville.

The problem of course, is Papa himself literally made up the statement
It’s a cool stadium. Only 100% chairback on campus field IIRC. Great sightlines. Great view walking over the bridge.

It's been a BAD 12 months for Louisville. But guess what? They are still in the ACC, in the Power club, and as long as that remains true - and it will - it really doesn't matter.

He likely still calls them "Kroger's" and "Ford's" too.

My TV hasn’t told me to get mad at that yet.
John never got over being pissed on Tom about the basketball arena location. John wanted the new arena built on property between 2nd and 3rd street in Downtown Louisville. Tom, like everyone else in the city except John, wanted the arena built on the riverfront where it is now located.

When John didn’t get his way, he sulked and complained for years. Must be something about rich people being used to getting their way. He became very difficult to work with on the athletic board to the point he complained Tom got his way too much. John resigned from the Athletic Board, and took his money with him, not long after complaining about Tom.

John continued as a member of Louisville Board of Trustees, started complaining about Tom and athletic spending in the BOT meetings. Fast forward six months, Tom’s fired, and John is finally happy: vendetta fulfilled.

When John’s feud started with Tom, he started increasing his ties to UK. John started attending some Uk games. That was a big change. Before that happened the local newspaper ran a story that John would make the UK AD come to Louisville, usually at Louisville basketball games, hat in hand to ask for money for UK athletics. Sure it was a dick thing to do but no one seemed to mind. Everyone laughed because it was Kentucky. In hindsight it shows how petty John is.

John’s problem is he under estimated how much the Louisville market meant to his business. The Louisville market was the foundation his business was built on. When he attacked Tom, Louisville fans stopped buying his pizza. Sales in Louisville plummeted. Keep in mind 30 years ago it wasn’t uncommon for John to deliver pizza to businesses in Downtown Louisville himself. If your neighbors won’t buy your product, why should anyone else?

After his ill advised comments about the NFL, his business suffered in other areas. Again John failed to think about the consequences of his words. It didn’t help John that UofL hired private investigators to dig up dirt on Tom after Tom filed a wrongful termination claim against the university. When the investigators couldn’t find anything, Louisville gave Tom a golden parachute, 7 million dollars and a bundle of retirement perks, to go away.

It’s rather ironic that John made the comment that got him fired from the company he started at a training session to improve his image.

As for John I don’t believe he’s a racist. I believe John is a rich and arrogant. He forgot where he came from. He pissed his friends off with his constant whining about Tom. Hard to find fault with a guy that did what Tom did for UofL. Without Tom, Louisville would still be in CUSA, everyone knows that even John.

I believe John’s comment was taken out of context. There is a difference calling someone that word and discussing the word being used by someone else. I would venture to say if John hadn’t pissed off everyone in town with his whining about Tom and the NFL players, somebody here might have had his back.

As it is in the ultra sensitive times we live, where folks are looking something to be offended by, it wasn’t hard for UofL to be rid of John and his whining and look like they were doing the right thing. Ironically if Tom was on the job, I don’t believe John’s name would be coming down off the stadium. Tom would have given John an opportunity to write another check to the university. John would have attended sensitivity training and all would be forgotten.

By the way UK announced that they had cut ties with John as well...lol Rather strange considering their basketball arena has the name of a guy on it that regularly used the word.

Heading to my safe place. Where is my pink hat...

Wow.

Time for Louisville to move on and put the Papa period to bed.
You'd think Louisville fans would know that the guy's name is Schnatter, not Schattner.
What's worse...

Option #1 Louisville hiring prostitutes

Option #2 Louisville with Adidas paying recruits 6 figures to attend

Option #3 Louisville offering players family fully paid travel to watch the games

Option #4 In bed with Papa Johns?

Option #5 Pitino

Option #6 Hiring of the biggest cheater in the history of the NCAA...Clint Hurtt

Option #7 Hiring of the scum bag football coach

The worst of that is that you had to clarify who you meant in #6 (because there's more than 1 option)...
You won’t find Louisville fans moaning about being shutout of a P5 conference. Your program just had the best season it could have. Beat everyone you played. Congratulations on finishing 5th in the country. 5th because you got shutout of the playoffs. You’re going to always be shutout too. You can hang all the cute little national championship banners you want but you and I both know that don’t mean squat.

Louisville has hosted two College Gamedays and had a Heisman Trophy winner since joining The ACC. As long as the end justifies the means. The end was ACC membership. This is college athletics not Sunday School. If you want to compete with The SEC you better act like The SEC.

If we had not beaten out UCONN our programs would be regressing just like theirs. 20K a game for college football last season. Down 6K from 2016.

Somebody has to be the bad guy. I like the role. Especially if it means my program can cash be checks every year. Better to be the bad guys in The ACC than overachievers on the outside looking in.

Congratulations again on your undefeated season. I would have loved to see your team beat Alabama.

Perhaps more than one contract was tied to TJ? Bobby Petrino is now contractually within reach to some schools!
Or perhaps Pappa is doing best for the University and bowing out?
Or perhaps he is enforcing the contract and reserves the rights to the name and decided to drop his name.
Theory is another name for conspiracy.

Ummm .. gotta disagree with you here because it just ain't the truth AT ALL ... TJ wanted the arena ON CAMPUS (see silo's site - which was as available as the current site is now) ... NOT downtown. Because he knew, that an on-campus arena would NOT be something a pro-NBA group could lobby for an NBA franchise.

TJ never wanted to put the arena downtown ... the third street water company lot, OR where it is now.
