    Who is going to training camp?

    Its absolutely worth it. It will be hot and nasty but thats part of the vibe. Also that vibe won't exist forever. If we move to new high tech facilities and follow the trend of not letting fans into TC Spartanburg will become nostalgic. Its a way to see the team like no other. Its a must do for any fan and will be sad if one day its not available to us.

    Correct but I have heard some chatter that a buy out isn't beyond a possibility for Tepper.

    This could be our last year in Spartanburg so I will go for sure.

    JR Statue to remain

    What’s actually the funniest thing about the statue is it was a gift from the minority’s owners of the team. Within a couple years JRs skeletons pop out of the closet and the minority owners lose the team with zero chance to get back in. Me thinks they may want the statue torn down (or a refund) more than anyone. Lol.

    Jerry was instrumental in pitching the NFL in 1994, don't get me wrong, but you are correct the PSL owners funded the stadium and around 22 other people funded 52% of the team. The city was welcoming with the land and the states combined as a natural region for a team. The fans paid for tickets and attended and bought merch. There would be no Carolina panthers without all of these factors and many many more.

    If it wasn't for George Washington there wouldn't be the Carolina Panthers

    Tepper Presser Takeaways

    A couple points that I thought were large: he mentioned MLS again. He mentioned it in a statement about use of public funds for future use vs his own. He basically said if I bring something that will bring in tax revenue from outside the region it should be a split revenue. He emphasized outside the region and tourist taxes specifically I believe. He said a partnership.

    Maybe but it's still Jerrys to do with as he pleases.

    Interesting approach but so is the stadium and the statue is owned by the Panthers. I’m thinking Tepper knew it was a point of contention, it was a negotiating point and here we are. He could have removed if he really wanted.

    Not before but now I am going to swing by the first couple games and see if there is a group of protesters with bullhorns. It’s goin to become a spectacle before it fades.

    Lol. I think after a season of people throwing jeans at it and messing with it at night JR may allow the clause to be cancelled.

    I have said for months that taking down the statue was smart. Put it on mothballs and once JR passes away put it back in a Panthers hall of game garden or museum assuming public sentiment has settled. The fact it HAS to stay is going to be 1000% worse for JR.

    But now its going to Be more than a statue. The media will descent on this as a salute to bigotry and racism. There will be protests at it during game day. It will get defaced and it will be a black mark on our stadium until it’s removed. Regardless of opinion of the statue it’s going to be a massive pain in the ass
