CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Attorney Jerry Reese has filed yet another lawsuit against the Charlotte Knights' plans to build a stadium in uptown Charlotte.

Reese says that the $38 million project is unfair to local taxpayers.

Mecklenburg County and the Knights are both listed as defendants on the suit.

A judge dismissed Reese's first lawsuit against the knights in 2007.

Charlotte will NEVER support a MLB team! They barely support the Bobcats! You would think by now that he'd get that through his thick skull! :angry: The majority of people want baseball back to Charlotte. He should be more concerned that when it does come back to Charlotte, we will see the same prices that the TWC Arena and BofA Stadium charge. Right now, Knights Stadium is a good cheap source of entertainment!

If you said North Carolina would NEVER hoist the Stanley Cup 20 years ago, you would have sounded sane. To say we will NEVER support MLB after being named the fastest growing city/state in the country, hosting the DNC, and having the 6th busiest airport in the world, you sound ignorant.

Suuure, let´s bash the man that has literally saved Charlotte, to this point, from permanently being branded along the likes of Lehigh Valley, Toledo, Pawtuckett, Rochester, etc., and sit back and watch while MLB cities like Cincinnati lose their companies to us, while they continue to support MLB.

Charlotte led the NBA in attendance for a decade, had a respectful attendance mark this year despite the worst team in NBA history with an awful nickname, and was actually a hot ticket and great atmosphere the one and only time they did make the playoffs (swept by the Magic). Not to mention the Carolinas are a huge baseball hotbed and, again, we are the fastest growing city/region in this country.

Go Jerry Go!!! A Knights Stadium with public funds with no plans to expand to MLB standards is beyond stupid, and is totally contradictory to what Charlotte has always stood for.
