I could see millions, those huge light up logo signs at the stadium wont be cheap.


Probably modify a lot of stuff or just phase it out.

Sure, get rid of the dumbass PSLs and I'll be happy to contribute.


There are ALWAYS PSLs for sale. You must keep in mind, no PSLs, no stadium, no franchise. Don't piss and moan, buy yourself a PSL.

I wouldn't be opposed to the city offering to help pay for some of the renovations as a way of thanking the Richardson's for bringing the team, and thus the millions of dollars in economic impact it has created, for buying the team and building the stadium without any public funds.

But then again, I do take a sense of pride in the fact that unlike most other teams, our stadium was built and is maintained entirely by private funds.

This. I've recently opened a new gas station and 2 simple numbered LED signs cost $5,000. So I can only imagine what a huge sign with custom logo design and requirements would cost. Easily in the six figures. Here are 2 on the outside that have to be re-done.

The NFL isn't responsible for team stadiums, it is the Owner(s) responsibility.


the owners are the league is the owners

Based on the revenue the stadium and the Panthers bring to the city and county, I would have no problem with spending some significant tax dollars to upgrade/renovate the stadium.

Our schools are a mess.

If they can give us a Super Bowl it's money well spent.

The problem with Charlotte getting a Super Bowl isnt the stadium. Its the few amenities the city has to offer and the lack of premier hotels. Charlotte has to step up its "tourism" game if it wants a huge event like a Super Bowl. We're taking baby steps first with this DNC later this year. If we can handle things like that, maybe down the road we can accommodate the big game.


Indianapolis, Jacksonville, and Detroit say hello.

Idny can't be much better than Charlotte if at all.

Just take the old ones down and not replace then with the new logos. Wouldn't cost anything besides to pay for the labor.

I used to work for Lightbulb Depot in Charlotte and let me tell you. If the Panthers wanted to upgrade the signs and all that, the lights they could get from that place would be hella cheap for one reason, actually two. 1. They would want their business so they can provide them exclusively with bulbs for the whole stadium, so it would be very cheap. Trust me, I know the owner. 2. Create a scratch my back and I'll scratch yours type of deal, quality bulbs at rock bottom prices for tickets, etc etc. They used to have a deal with the Bobcats, I used to run that account, but when I moved on from that place the guy in charge of all maintenance stopped dealing with the company because the guy that took over the account was a douche bag. I laughed, really hard when I heard that.

On a side note, I think you over paid for those signs man.
