No money from taxpayers = LA Panthers.

My god, you guys are dumb.

The actual city pays very little in comparison to other pro sports teams.

So dont sign high profile free agents, have a two year attrition plan to impress your friends and let the team go to waste by keeping a lame duck coaching staff.

Sure! i cant wait to jump all over this..

Quote in the Charlotte Observer.


Taxpayers got a good deal when Bank of America Stadium was built, at least compared with the subsidies given to many NFL teams.

The public spent about $60 million on land and infrastructure, but the team built the $187 million stadium itself. Some of that money came from the sale of Personal Seat Licenses, in which fans paid for the right to buy season tickets.

In Minnesota, taxpayers are paying for half of the cost of a planned $975 million stadium for the Vikings. In Indianapolis, the public paid for almost all of the new $720 million stadium for the NFL’s Colts, which opened in 2008.

By the way, you guys DO know the money is provide renovations to Bank of America stadium, right? Jesus Christ.

Or maybe we should just let the stadium go to waste, have Richardson die, and be a huge candidate to move without a better/new stadium in the works, right? Then again, with the way people on this site constantly whine about every little thing including this, maybe that is what you guys want.


I see your point but Im tired of the owners constantly threatening the public that they will move their franchise to LA if we dont give them what they want. The reason there is no team there is because the league\owners will no longer be able rattle their local community. Once a team is there it will all go away...

If the Panthers want to throw away what they have here in the loyal (cough) PSL holders, the local TV deal, and JR's stadium and be that team, then let them leave... no big deal to me, Fug em... The only reason I follow them is because I live in Charlotte... It sure as hell aint because they are a winner...

I welcome a move to LA if it gets us a real owner and we become competitive. Sitting in Charlotte sucking isnt doing much. So many people in this market have "second teams" or root for teams in other markets because of our losing stigma. We're virtually guests in our own house on gamedays. Id rather pull for a winner from afar, we'd still be the Panthers.

No one cares about the NFL in LA there is too much to do there. If people really cared football in LA the NFL would have been able to keep the Raiders or Rams in LA. This attitude is why eventually this team will probably move to LA and then there will be bitching and moaning beyond belief.

All KT wants is an African American owner of the Panthers. If you believe anything other than that, you are a dillusional fool.

The Bobcats got more money from taxpayers to build the TW Arena than the Panthers did to build BOA Stadium.
