The arena isn't seen as a success.

It didn't accomplish any of its goals.

It was supposed to spur development around that area of town. It didn't. A hotel was built, that's all. The rest of the area is still surrounded by parking lots.

It was supposed to bring people downtown...it does for a few games a season when the Lakers or Heat are in town, but the Bobcats pathetic performance isn't bringing anywhere near what was expected. The retail built into the exterior of the arena has been a flop.

Now all of that is not the fault of the Bobcats or the arena and are much more likely tied to the collapse of the real estate market and the economy in general, but the arena is in no way seen as a success by the masses. I'm glad it was built and still support the fact that it was built, but lets not pretend that things have gone exactly as planned.


When you have a vision of the future it is not uncommon to find yourself ahead of the point where an vision becomes viable. I believe TWC is a good example of this. Bad team, bad economy. Once those two issues are addressed, retail space in downtown will begin to fill with retailers and TWC will get its share.

Jgibs in 2012 I cant believe there are people whos hate for wealthy blacks is so strong they whine for 8 years and try to gentrify their business. I cant believe the lack of respect blacks contributions to our community are given. Its mind boggling a city that sees itself as progressive and intends to host the DNC and our black prez this fall still embraces this redneck stuff. I cant believe George Shinn gets more loyalty than MICHAEL JORDAN in this city. Its hilarious. If the Bobcats get the #1 pick tonite, it will put a huge dent in your movement. You guys will have to spin it into a negative and convince folks not to buy Davis Bobcat jerseys. Good luck with your charity event, do a lot more of those and you'll catch up to the Bobcats who have done those in our community since 2004. Will catch the buzz donate millions to the local YMCAs as well?

We don't hate black people KT....just overtly racist black people like you.

Your rants used to be comical. Yet now, they are just sad and pathetic. You see everything that happens in life as a great conspiracy against you and other African American people. Yet, you fail to grasp that you are TRULY the ONLY person here who cares about the color of a prrson's skin. Your blind hatred won't allow you to see or u d'├ętat and you are exactly what you proclaim to hate...a flaming racist.

Good day.

No I cheer for the bobcats because they are in charlotte. Why is that so hard to grasp? I wish our team was called the Charlotte Hornets but if not its fine.

If you hate the logo and team so much, why not just pull for another? If you love the Hornets so much why not just pull for New Orleans? Why is that concept so difficult to grasp? When the Bobs turn this thing around what are you guys gonna do?


Because I root for teams for reasons other than just their colors and logo. That is why i root for the Bobcats, yet would like to see the Hornets brand return to keep the franchise from leaving in the next 5 years.

TWC is nice inside but it's much to small of a venue to consistently and successfully hold major sporting events like a final 4 or NCAA regional. Hell, the acc doesn't even want to have its basketball tourney here any more which should tell you everything u need to know.

This is my last post on this board. The over the top racism and lies are just not worth my time

Time Warner Cable Arena was a great decision by the Charlotte City Council. It has spurred development and we have the DNC, coming to Charlotte and an NBA team in Charlotte, that wouldn't have happened without the arena

However, Bob Johnson had absolutely zero involvement in approving the arena, the arena was approved 11 months before Bob Johnson was awarded the team. Bob Johnson had as much involvement in the arena getting approved as Puff The Magic Dragon.

How can you just make poo up out of thin air?

I guess Bob Johnson also invented the Internet too?

You guys should create a post that lists all the great things that Bob Johnson did for Charlotte:
Bob Johnson built the light rail system.... By himself in one night

Bob Johnson really owns the Carolina Panthers, he just let's Jerry Richardson act like he owns the team so white people will attend the games.

Bob Johnson was the first to discover Gold in NC, I'm struggling to figure out why they call it Reeds Gold Mine.

Bob Johnson was actually the guy that Gen. Cornwallis was talking about when he claimed Charlotte was like a Hornets nest. bob was like Bushwick Bill dropping them mothafuging bees on em.

Bob Johnson imploded the Original Hive by simply wishing it away.

Bob Johnson actually paid for the Bobcats with his urine, a simple piss from Bob was worth 330 million.

Bob Johnson is so well respected, even the Horses refused to poo on the floor of the arena during the Jumper Classic

Bob Johnson gives Dr. Phil life advice.

Its a myth started by racist whites to create distrust towards him. It implies the stereotype that the wealthy black man is egotistical, self absorbed. Its worked like a charm on these primitive hicks. They ignore the Bobcat headshot and act like its Bob Johnsons face. Much like they are so delusional to ignore the Hornets are in New Orleans.

Heres another "we voted against the arena and he built it anyway!"

Again implying a defiance and ego that is very good at riling up local whites who were looking for reasons to not accept Bob ( much like Cam early on). Now that the arena is seen as a success you never hear this one anymore, we wouldnt wantBob tied to something successful.


KT you are a fuging idiot.

Get yourself checked for paranoid schizophrenia. You're fuging delusional.

Sure, Bob Johnson never named a team after himself called the Bobcats. That's why after allowing the fans to vote up until the last three names were selected, he didn't allow them to vote among those last three, he just picked the one that happened to have his name within it.

You are racist.

You are ignorant.

You are hateful.

You just posted numerous loaded terms, accusations, and racial epithets in one post while I see no one in here using the n-word or any other derogatory term referring to non-white people.

Funny how that works.

You are a small-minded bigot and I hope you never have the ability to create offspring so that they would learn your ways of ignorance and divisiveness to continue to perpetuate hate, disunity, and racism. Go f*ck yourself.

Quote that, make it a sig, you psycho b*tch.

But calling everyone that disagrees with you "racist whites,""primitive hicks," then alluding to "riling up whites" and the like is cool to use?

That is the equivalent to a white racist referring to black people and calling them thugs in the same sentence. It's just a play on words, it's still racist.
