Um have you ever tried to take the elevator or even seen the lines?


until someone has an issue with getting around (walking) they do see anything like that.

Yes I have taken the elevator many times. My wife has back problems and takes it almost every game she goes to. We usually get to the stadium about 1 hour before kickoff. Sometimes I feel like walking up the ramps while she takes the elevator. We generally get to our seats about the same time.

There is often an attitude from the club/400 level fans towards us lowely 500 level elevator riders. I bet they will be exclusive at some point

This sounds great! We need to place the burden of wasteful stadium improvements on the taxpayers!!!

They could start by improving the players that play in the stadium.

I'd rather see a roof on the stadium. Retractable of course.

Since I started this thread, maybe I should resurrect it. The deal with the city is contingent on the public funding, including the $62 million being sought from the state. Tillis is not supportive and it won't happen without his support. McCrory is not sticking his neck out for the Panthers on this. Tillis is OK backing a bill that would let the city increase the food and bev tax, but not a bill for direct state tax dollars into the stadium. I'm told Richardson was very blunt and came across as condescending in his meeting with Tillis, or at least Tillis came away with that impression. State funding appears very unlikely at this point. It is very possible that the Panthers will come back to the city for the $62 million and ask that the city in effect simply dedicate more years of the food/bev tax increase to the stadium project. I can tell you that the Panthers will be firm in not scaling back the project and they will also be very firm in not going out more than 15 years on their agreement not to move. There are other public/private funding options being evaluated, but this seems the most likely scenario and it will be very politically inflammatory. Richardson simply does not understand opposition to public funding and if talks are reopened and the city council balks, this could melt down very quickly. Don't assume this is over, or even nearly over, because it isn't.
