i'm not worried about moving. when is the last time we had a blackout? is this team dependent on local gov't for survival like the vast majority of other teams who have to seek out tax money to pay for the stadium?

there is no incentive to leave. there are a lot smaller markets out there and a lot of teams who can't sell out games or just can't keep them from getting blacked out. those would be the ones that are more likely to be moved and even then very few of them ever are.

what happens to the team is just not something i worry about. i'm confident that jerry has a plan and much of that plan involves the team he built staying in the place he built it. in the carolinas there is no better place for it to be than in and around charlotte. i don't have to know what that plan is. i am just sure that very little will change when he's gone. i mean hurney might get the axe or whatever, but the team won't move. it will still be the carolina panthers and they will still play in charlotte.

I think the Panthers are owned by Richardson Sports Limited Partnership. Not sure what the Partnership is but suspect the other partners in that group would continue to own their share. I would also suspect that Jerry may have invested a bit of time in what's called "Estate Planning" and his shares of that partnership would go to those person(s). No matter what, I think Jerry is most likely planning an exit strategy that would keep the Panthers here for a while.

Even if that falls through I think some local guys can muster up a few bucks to own an NFL franchise. There is a lot of Nascar and Bank money floating around and I suspect many of these guys would like to keep the team local.

Give Simon the gm job and let paula run the offense while randy did the defense................. huh so it would look the same as it looks right now. Thanks

(JK not impling anything the lawyers with nothing to do would find offensive.)
