Panthers want 125 Million in taxpayer money.

The city of Charlotte made the mistake of not retaining the Hornets and the economy suffered for it. There is no way they let something like that happen again.

Let's not pretend the city of Charlotte makes nothing off of the Panthers...

This is not a one way relationship...

What about older fans?? My father has issues with his hip and knees and often bitches his way up those long winding ramps. Probably easier for someone who just walks down to the field with his camera.

It's 8 games per year.

If your father gets to the point where he can't walk up the stairs, that's unfortunate for him, but other fans and taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for that.

I feel like escalators would be kind of dangerous anyway. You are supposed to walk onto an escalator from its origin. If you enter from the side you are not transferring momentum in the same direction the escalator is moving. I anticipate a lot of people will fall, especially with all the drunks at a game.

Funny how a lot of the people against this tax pay little to nothing to see the Panthers play every year. It's 1% on food and booze. Stop being poor.

Because it doesn't need to be.

The one guy that just called into Brett Jensen's show complaining was a fuging Giants fan. "I go to one game a year" he says. Guy probably has lived here for 5 years and still has NY plates on his car because he doesn't want to pay NC taxes and tags.

Of course we should do what we can to keep the panthers happy.

Just don't expect me to be happy about the fact that pro teams basically hold cities hostage for little to no economic benefit to the public.

    • You don't see white people glorifying thug life and blaming the police when they get caught. I had a juvi tell me straight up that he believed he was a man now cause he shot somebody. Tell me what's the problem with that. Clearly it's the police? Right??
    • And I've been in jails were there were literally no black people in them, violent or otherwise. Crime in general is a problem in poor communities and the black community is disproportionately poor, its not because black people or the culture is inherently violent. Regardless this is a separate issue and had nothing to do with police violence, unless you feel that violence against the poor is justified regardless of cause because poor people commit violent crimes and shouldn't be afforded equal protectiom
