    About the new stadium...

    Sure.. I can see the "we are way past the population being mainly other team's fans" ...... I do not necessarily agree, and think it is more prevalent here; BUT not something we could prove either way and yeah, am sure it's across the league. I am just sometimes surprised by the amount of some of the teams that come through. Sometimes, I'm like "gonna be nice not to have so many today at the game..... " then get to the stadium and am surrounded by them ... ie the Bills

    About the new stadium...

    Despite every game being sold out there are lots of empty seats on game days, including during good seasons because there is not enough people willing to buy tickets from PSL owners and brokers trying to sell. The main reason is tickets have already gotten to expensive for many people even when they can get them for face value or less. The population also is still largely fans of other teams. Charlotte is a good market but the fan base is not there who will shell out the kind of ticket prices for seats at a brand new place. The only reason why the games “sell out” now is because of the PSLs. Selling out would be a problem unless it was PSLs again and not to sure that would fly again here.

    LaCanfora talks about the sale...

    Read what I just posted above. I said something very similar. The mindset there is a market for PSLs again here I think might be misguided.

    I think the challenge in this scenario and I am also curious to the ratio of PSLs owned by people vs ticket brokers. Bottom line, is even now during even good seasons on games days there are a lot of empty seats or which many of those who attend are opposing teams fans....... SO, I am not so sure about how many of the current PSL owners who are already not using nor selling their tickets on game days will be so willing to fork over a bunch of money for new PSLs; then from that, there is not a waiting list of people who want season tickets AND being there are so many empty seats on game days - if fans aren't buying single games tickets, do you think there are that many who will then be willing to buy a PSL?? Depending on the $$ I could very easily be in the category of not being able to do PSLs again and I know many in the same boat. Especially at the location I have now. I don't think the market is really going to be there this time around to sell PSLs but I could easily be wrong. That being said, I still think the current stadium is great. It has plenty of Suites, lots of Clubs seats and in a great location, etc. Also am curious to what kind of revenue generating amenities could be added. Would love to see something done to stay in the current place.

    The limitation on the stadium hosting a Superbowl is no dome, and Charlotte is in an area where in Jan it can be cold, etc. So unless the NFL does another ok with outside during cold game like the one year it was in Giants Stadium then having no dome is the biggest limitation. Then from there is not enough hotel space, which over time can be solved. Overall... I do not want a new stadium.
  6. Like what I am hearing so far in regards to staying in BOA. That stadium was built in a modern era way... in that is has plenty of suites with a lot of club seats. I also think the stadium is in great location with plenty of room inside to add some more amenities. Plus, that entire corridor has plans in place to make that area even better. I am fine with giving Tepper tax incentives, and money to do upgrades, etc.... BUT Lets get this settled... and will be very happy if and when they sign to stay in BOA.

    Dallas, at home, week 1

    Sweet ... we rarely get that start time... definitely much preferred, for me, than the 1pm starts

    Sabates officially drops out

    Are either of them “less likely” to hold the city hostage and a threat to want a new stadium? If so that’s the one I will be rooting for.
  9. I think they should expand the rosters anyway regardless, or at least allow more players on the practice squad. I hate how every season teams, including the Panthers, are signing guys off the streets or other teams practice squads when if the rosters where expanded then at least there would be more depth of players who know the system, etc and overall better play throughout the season.
  10. Sorry wrong use of words... whatever you want to call the deal the team made with the city/state the most recent time when they got tax payer money for the stadium upgrades, etc. They signed an agreement then which runs out in a year or so. That is what I was referring. A new owner will most likely be looking for something from the city whether it be in the form of money, tax incentives, etc, etc... with that there will be another deal but yeah technically not a lease. So I will reword.. "I won't be a peace until we have new owners and a new long term DEAL signed to stay at the current place "
  11. Hopefully you won't have to worry about this. I am a PSL owner myself, since 2002, and really don't think there will be a new stadium any time soon. Despite its "age" the current stadium was built in a modern era way in that it has a lot of suites and lots of club seats, who also have a very nice indoor area to lounge and concessions. There is also room inside to do more, plus the location is great, etc. AS it relates to not being able to support a new location. Despite every game being sold out, if you go every Sunday you see all the empty seats.... SO we still have a fan base that wont buy single game tickets from others and then your going to ask 50k people to spend another $3k to $10k+ for a PSL of which we already spent that kind of money?? Not going to happen. The fan base isn't here that can do that, there is no waiting list and not a large number of people try to get tickets as it is. This all being said,,,,, I won't be a peace until we have new owners and a new long term lease signed at the current place
  12. No, No, and No... and this is regardless of the player unless maybe if it was a bonifide franchise QB and the Panthers needed one. (not saying this now, since we have Cam but in general). Trading top draft picks, multiple #1's rarely ever works out for the team giving up the picks.

    Tyrann Matthieu officially a FA

    I dont know much about this person or any other safeties available... BUT having a top notch safety makes such a huge difference in a defense. Would be great to have one here.
  14. Awesome pics... as always.
  15. When it comes to the draft my attitude is you have to just trust the guys who are paid to do this for a living and are supposed to know what they are doing. We drafted Luke when we were were stacked at LB. We have been puzzled before and ended up with some studs. Plus what I found interesting when they were talking about the pick, was the part about possibly grooming him to play Safety AND we need some of those. ​Panthers definitely still need some play makers on offense though.
