Panthers want 125 Million in taxpayer money.

That money needs to go towards more efficient causes like Armanti Edwards's paycheck.

Any out of towners poopooing those who aren't crazy about paying... Will you pay my family's share of $600? I just got raped by my property taxes and don't have any money left. TIA.

Because the city is gonna be responsible with the money anyhow, right? I mean, they have such a good track record.

Not even the same thing.

And I'm not an out of towner.

The money being asked from JR, relatively speaking, is not a lot. That is the point.

And people doubting if the lack of contribution to building a stadium matters in regards to whether the team stays or goes? Maybe not for Richardson as he is a Carolina native but if he passes, it would be guaranteed to go somewhere else if the city refuses to help the team out. And considering the amount the team has done on their own (they contributed the most to the stadium being built initially and didn't ask for a lot from the city nor have they over the years), the city should contribute some.

Money from the public is money from the public. I don't think I'll ever see that $600 back in inflated wages from anything even tertiarily related to the panthers.

So you're telling me that the city is inefficient, yet you want me to give them another revenue source? Makes sense.

Pay the money...3-4 more cent isn't going to put any of us in the poor house.

Then your issue isn't with Carolina then. If your money isn't going to them, it is going towards something else.

My question to you is, how much money do you think of yours is actually going to be going to the team? Because from the sounds of it, you are acting like half of ones bank account is going to. There are 9,222,414 people living in North Carolina when it was counted in 2008. Trust me, you'll be fine.

lol, have you seen the way schools mismanage money? Schools in Guilford County(Greensboro) were granted a 15 million dollar federal grant.....so they can buy Ipads for the students. I can't wait until all those Ipads are sold and damaged.

If wins = education then JR would be Gaston County

^THIS replying to jtsgreensboro^...The US spends more per capita on kids/public education then any country in the modern world, yet after throwing money at public education for YEARS, what do we have to show for it.....half the kids in high school can't hardly read, write or hold an intelligent conversation. In survey after survey countires like South Korea and Germany kick azz in math and reading ability compared to the US. (Sorry for the rant)

I never even said that but thanks for trying to put words in my mouth.

If you are against them raising taxes for the team, that is absolutely fine - it is your prerogative But to bitch and moan constantly about it and to act like JR is the devil revived is ridiculous.
