Ummm this will not come from the people's pockets but the revenue from the Hotel Tax ... Basically will be paid for by anyone who visits charlotte.. So hell the opponents fans are the ones really paying ;)

Actually its a food and bev tax. So it effects everyone in Charlotte.

One thing that I do remember is, these innovations will help charlotte in the long run to be able to host a Super Bowl. Imagine how much money that will bring to charlotte. Of course, some other things have to happen but it is every pro football city's dream is to host a Super Bowl and cash in...just my 2 cent

It's on prepared food and beverages...so if you don't eat out, it doesn't affect you.

I doubt Charlotte will ever host a Super Bowl. It would take more than renovations. It would take one of those Billion dollar stadiums. Zod is trying to draw a connection between team performance and funding. I just don't see it that way. We pay to watch NFL football, we aren't even obligated to cheer for the Panthers (many of us don't). There are plenty of franchises with a long history of losing but they fork over the cash because if they don't, some other city will.

Man, my heart really aches for all those yankees who are Giants fans being taxed. :(

I am consistently surprised that people willingly, almost gladly ask for their items to cost more, and for that money to be sent to any government entity.

Raise taxes on everyone, yet not everyone goes to games nor likes the team. Slick.

Getting funds from the city of Charlotte is a must. The Panthers don't actually make as much money as you might think. I know this because I actually have a copy of the Panthers books from the last 5 years (my company does finance work for them).
