i wish he would put some of that money into hiring the best coaching staff and FO money can buy.
putting a better product on the field is the best upgrade that stadium could have and would go the furtherest towards filling up the stands with panther fans.
I think the money is there, the failure to spend it intelligentley well...that is the issue. The brains behind the money...that is the issue....
Not that I don't agree, more effort needs to go into the product more than anything and it is apparent this has not been happening.
Our stadium is old for stadiums and things need to be checked and replaced regardless if 'upgrades' are also being built, I am sure it is cheaper now more than ever to upgrade, despite 250 million being pretty expensive....its nothing compared to building a stadium. I personally don't like our stadium very much. I don't like the whole steeler/GB thing. With 'traditional' stadiums there is a lot of good and a lot of bad.
Of course JR will ask for money from Charlotte, the fans in Charlotte means much more to the reason teh Panthers are here than JR, despite not having as much 'power'. If we can build a stupid light rail for half a billion, we can pay half that and keep the Panthers, the only thing worth a poo IMO, in charlotte.
