Cool if they move maybe they'll take John Fox with them and we can get a team with a REAL coach in here.

The tech bust hit cities like Austin hard (and others much harder). It's something you can get over in a matter of time if you aren't built around one industry. Banking is important to Charlotte but the city isn't built around it like Detroit is around cars. No where near.

Charlotte, now that I think about it, is about as dependent on banking as Austin is on tech and government (lot like Raleigh in that sense).

This thread is retarded. Wells Fargo already said that half the company would be HQ'd in Charlotte, one of the reasons why the city made a push for them to win the bid and not the other guys. That was all over the news.

There are a lot of cities that are hurting more than Charlotte. And there are many franchises struggling worse than Charlotte like Buffalo for example. Outside of LA where would the Panthers move? Can't see a lot of cities prospering right now who could support building a stadium and incurring all the infrastructure to start a team in these economic times. Sure Charlotte might be hurting for a while but it still is generally sound and likely to bounce back.

The Panthers will be here for a long time. The PSL structure almost ensures the franchise will make money no matter what happens to the economy or the team for that matter.

The same reaction when I said Wachovia is gonna fold... figures.

I never said Panthers will move outside North Carolina... I said outside Charlotte.

If they move a team they sure aren't going to keep it in the same small market region like the Carolinas.

I know I know... The big cat said that our Panthers will never leave this place but business is business and no pay no play. Wishful thinking not always works.

Now, why do I say that? The Charlotte is known to be a banking city, 2nd largest banking city in the United States. Soon its not going to be the case. Wachovia is no more and headquarters will not be in Charlotte. I know some people that have an inside scoop on many banks in this area (people that do big internal work for the banks). I knew Wachovia will fold 4 months before it actually did. The same source told me that the headquarters of Bank of America 80% guaranteed to leave Charlotte in next 2 years. If this happens, departure of Wachovia and Bank of America will cost Charlotte around 100,000 jobs and millions in revenue. Many intellectual business people will force to move and that means more revenue will be lost. It will be like a chain reaction so dont be surprise if Charlottes population will have a negative grow.

If this happens it will definitely impact Panthers as a business.




My source tells me your a freaking moron. :rolleyes:
