I'd pay more for tickets to ensure the Panthers stayed. But I'm a gluten for punishment.

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

I've refused to go upstairs in a mall before because the escalator was busted.

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 college games, a College Bowl game, 8 games each fall, and other events there. Each time, the area hotels and restaurants make a killing. I imagine that UNCC
will play a game or two there. More money for the local economy.

Any clues where the money should come from?

There are bars and restaurants I've never gone to because they were up some stairs.

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.

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.

No it wont

If this team is sold to someone hell bent on moving it they will and it will pretty damned easy too.
