good post OP
I can't stand how people just casually allow JR to do this to the city of Charlotte and the Carolinas. They support him no matter what never questioning his decisions, its almost scary. As if a lockout isn't going to be enough of a drawback from sports, we have to have the owner who goes all out and fugs up. Bree, Brady, Manning they are the leader's of the player's union, yet last year did they say "I have got to prepare for the future, I'm just going to sit out and not play", no, but that is exactly what JR did. Now they were talking about the Panthers relocating (LA).
Sure right now it's funny and stupid to think they would but talks getting started is more than I want to happen, even if it's just joking around. It ruins city sports teams to pull poo like that. JR hurt more than the team, he hurt the city of Charlotte and Carolinas as well. People don't realize it but it is true. Bandwagon fans may suck, but you need that fake support for a small team to keep your head above water.
As far as Jordan, did you expect differently? And I don't watch hockey.
I am hoping the new owner of the panther in the next few years can finally bring us that trophy, I have very little faith JR will be doing it with his last few years as an owner. I just hope by that time there is enough interest/stability for a new owner to take over in Charlotte
. I wish it were looked at a more of an honor to come to our city and have us support your PSL's, your team with all our heart than someone who is a fan of business, feeling special for what he is doing.
