It doesn't say that it is.


That's my point. Why are the panthers even mentioned..

If LA had a team there would probably be less than half the new stadiums there are, and thus most teams would be worth less money, thus the NFL wouldn't have the fat TV deals and huge ticket prices they do today.


That does not seem to make any sense.

It's in the Charlotte Business Journal. It's just discussing possiblilites and the local impacts.

New Orleans.


Well, technically, New Orleans is below sea level, so it could never fall into the ocean, just be swallowed by it. L.A., on the other hand, sits close enough to the San Andreas Fault that thousands of people will one day die when "the big one" hits.

Who would be crazy enough to live below sea level or on a major fault, especially after being warned of the potential danger? Even the stock holders' investment wouldn't cloud this simple wisdom in the mind of a rich old man.

Misleading thread title. Never says L.A. wants the Panthers.

A bit off topic, but how the hell would a London team work? Half of their games done in a 5-8 hour time zone difference. That would be miserable.

It does say the Mayor of L.A. "directly or indirectly" said he wanted the Panthers during the DNC.

I don't care. I just sent an email to the Panthers regarding the article. I hope JR comes out in the affirmative and cuts this off. I understand using it as leverage to get the money for upgrades, but we should be willing to do that regardless of L.A.

I would literally cry, possibly in the fetal position, if they took the Panthers away.

Charlotte....what a bunch of cheap bastards. Pay for the upgrades or see your entire economy plummet.


Studies have shown that cities actually lose money by funding stadiums/renovations.

FYI.

The threat of moving to LA is what allows most teams to threaten local and state governments into building them new stadiums.

A great deal of the value of NFL teams is tied into the value of the stadium.

Thus if the NFL had a team in LA, the NFL as a whole might not be the most valuable sports league on the planet, because most of the new stadiums around the league probably wouldn't have been built.

Not gonna happen. Although I wouldn't mind tail-gating for the Los Angeles Panthers, has a nice ring to it...

Yea the wish Cam was the face of LA. Of course why wouldn't they target us.

Still the Panthers will never be move bc that's the biggest Sport Market in NC and SC. Bobcats and Hurricanes has a better chance of moving.
