All Vinnie Viola

from Craig Davis of the Sun Sentinel,

Q. What is your assessment of your first few months as owner?

A. We have been learning an awful lot. It's kind of like drinking out of a fire hose. If I had to sum it up in a couple of sentences: We're more committed now to the principles that we believe in that produce long-term excellence in organizations. The team is, I think, starting to understand that everyone must work and everyone has to be absolutely committed to excellence. We're not going to tolerate anything but 100 percent dedication to the culture of the team first.

Q. Was the Panthers' poor start rougher than you expected?

A. I didn't know what to expect ... We won our opening night, and I was like, 'all right.' … Was I surprised at the patch of losing we kind of took on? Yes, absolutely, after a decent start.
