There are 2 types of people posting about how the Panthers are going to move: trolls and fuging idiots

Recommended Posts

Every team that has relocated has basically done it because of stadium issues. Eventually our owner, whoever that is, will say we need a new stadium. If Charlotte ponies up some decent public money then there is no chance the Panthers go anywhere. If Charlotte says f u you get nothing then you can't look at history and say there is no chance of moving. The NFL has been happy to vote yes to owners who want to move into a shiny new stadium without hesitation. We just saw it happen three times. That will not change.

Why are people saying Richardson would never sell to someone that would move the team?  I don't think he is in the best seat right now to get a say in who the team goes to.  I do agree that the team isn't going anywhere though.

There isn't a city in America more likely to do whatever an NFL owner tells them to do than Charlotte.

Not to mention the cost of rebranding.  I think a lot of people fear this because many of us thought the hornets would never move for the same reasons.

in a billion dollar industry a few hundred thousand is pretty insignificant

You are correct Sir, If we move it will be because of a new Stadium. Other potential cities would also drive the incentives and force Charlotte to match them. I am sure the new owner will want to host a Super Bowl so a new stadium is in the mix. This is a real issue, not a dream or a troll or whatever. This is a potential disaster, if you are a panther fan.

“And so now the Panthers will be up for sale in a city that has no major college team and couldn’t care less about its NBA team. Residents will worry that Charlotte could lose the Panthers under a new owner, despite how unlikely that is. The NFL would never move a team that has sold out every home game since 2002, has made major stadium upgrades in recent years and has a city council deathly afraid of having an unoccupied stadium sitting under its proud skyline.”

ill take this over the tin foil hat speculators around the city any day

Stadium issues=San Diego and Oakland built in the 60s, not BOA in 96.

A real threat is LA, not the aforementioned.

It will.  Not.  Happen.  Even if we stand firm to whatever new owner in this declining league wants.

Even if we were in some poo market like St. Louis or Buffalo the team wouldn't be in danger of moving anytime soon. I think the NFL has learned from the PR debacle that has been the Rams and Chargers.

Yeah lol and I bet they're getting nervous about the Vegas move too

It's a tourist city. I'm really not sure what they're expecting there.

I’ll keep my tin foil hat thank you. I have tried not to point anyone out or insult anyone, and I would appreciate the same treatment. I am looking at this from a business side nothing more. Let’s be honest here BOA buys tons of tickets each game to keep the “sale out” going. Every game you can see empty seats, and not just a few. We can revisit this tin foil hat discussion in about 3 years. I’m sure it will still be relevant at that point.

Ok I’ll completely trust your opinion and the Charlotte Observer’s point of view. I’m sure the new owner will consider each respected source.

Jonathan Jones writes for Sports Illustrated now. He has no ties to the Observer, and his opinion is knowledgeable and also unbiased.
