Panthers want 125 Million in taxpayer money.

284 posts in this topic

the money should not come from PSL holders / ticket prices. Nor should NC and SC counties pay. The money should come from businesses that have made a killing off the downtown development the Panther's stadium location created. We have a College Bowl game, 8 games each fall, and other events there. Each time, the area hotels and restaurants make a killing.

Any clues where the money should come from?

The NFL and The Panthers?

Just raise the price on tickets an avg of $35 per seat and this will be paid off in 5 years.

(($35 x 70,000 seats) x 10 Home Games )x 5 years

Great idea, let's encourage more PSL holders to sell their tickets to opposing fans

Only if you think the local economy should benefit from the stadium without any investment at all.

JR doesn't care. He gets his money one way or the other.

So the Panthers are going to leave town over escalators and a jumbotron?

That ass-hole Shinn did.

Also with a nice stadium it will make it harder for the future owner to move the team.

Perhaps the Panthers should go around and collect money from all of the places since they benefited from them being here. Let me ask you...how much money do you think goes into restaurants on a home playoff game, what about hotels, what about other businesses?

If the majority of the people live here I would say a helluva lot less than you think. But lets tax them anyways.

The only thing that surprises me is the fact that they are limiting it to Meck County. With the name Carolina in the teams name, you would think they would try to get money from both NC & SC.

While you have a point about hotels, home playoff games are huge for restautrants. Many restaurants in the Denver area set sales records Saturday night.
