There's a lot of stupid in this post. JR has never "threatened" to leave for LA.
Second, if you are supporting the team "just because" you live in charlotte then you shouldnt be more than a casual fan anyway and have no business being on a message board.
Third, do you realize that the tax (assuming it's true without a link) is actually very small in comparison to what most NFL cities pay?
Fourth, do you know that any tax imposed would likely be a hotel tax or something else to lessen or eliminate any impact on local residents.
During the season I'll admit that I'm the first person who gets caught up in the idiocy of the posts on this board. I'm too biased to think objectively about the team when they are on the field. In the offseason I begin to realize just how dense and unintelligent that 95% of posters on this site really are.
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...
