I went to NHOF two years ago. It was cool but I don't need to go back for another decade.

It's basically fat Yankees drooling over Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart stuff and jean short wearing duke fans using what little savings they have for a Jr lunchbox

Hahahahahahaha

That's the best part of it. All those Steeler and Redskins assholes that go to a "Steeler Bar" in Charlotte are gonna help finance our stadium upgrades.

Yup, thanks for funding our stadium upgrades you f*ckers!

Too bad we can't tax inbreeding, the Steelers fans could get us a retractable roof.

I just don't think it's a Christian thing to do, spending tax money on renovating a football stadium when people are out of work, homeless and some children not being fed nearly enough.

Tax money should be used to take care of the people living in a city, state, or country. Not to fight endless wars and add escalators to football stadiums.

Richardson issued a statement Sunday saying he’s dedicated to staying: “It has always been my desire that the Carolinas would be home of our Panthers. Nothing has changed. As someone who was born in North Carolina and lived much of my life in South Carolina, I hope that there would be no doubts about my personal devotion to the Carolinas.”

This is a telegraphed pass. The way for teams to fire a shot over the bow of their home cities is to bring up L.A. – or have it brought up for them. It’s no accident that in his statement Richardson doesn’t completely rule out the possibility of leaving. He leaves that door unlocked, by simply saying that it’s his desire to stay.

It’s not a coincidence that the Panthers are about to unfurl plans for a stadium renovation, and politicians in North Carolina have indicated that they’d be willing to help pay for them. What better way to firm up those commitments than to raise the possibility of a relocation to L.A.? That worked for Indianapolis, Seattle, New Orleans and others.

On top of that, Richardson is close friends with Patrick Soon-Shiong, the L.A. billionaire who is interested in buying AEG and being an owner of an NFL team playing in a downtown stadium. He has been Richardson’s guest at at least one Panthers game this season.

So it’s not inconceivable for Soon-Shiong, who needs Richardson to pave the way for him with the NFL, to do the Panthers owner a solid by nudging an L.A. politician to gin up interest in Carolina’s team, even if there are other franchises far more likely to relocate.

Non Relo clauses

Everyone has a price. Apparently you can be bought a lot cheaper.
