Charlotte Council approves plan to give Panthers $125 million

102 posts in this topic

Lets go ahead and get the $1500 to take out a full-page ad reading:

Carolina Panthers, Superbowl 48 Champions.

Also, it will be fitting since Gettleman will get to win in his old stadium.

yay I get to pay more taxes so a billionaire's private business gains in value

total scam just like PSLs but hey, at least he's not raping the city as much as some of the other NFL team owners are

remind me again, if tax payers and PSL owners are footing so much of the bill for the Panthers why do we even need JR in the first place? I guess we need somebody to show up and pocket all the profits right

just the tip

Agreed, it's not rape unless you only insert the tip.

I'm excited for two reasons:

One being the obvious

The second is it will keep the poor hillbillies/ghetto folk from Rock Hill or Concord from polluting the Charlotte night life. They can't afford the .03 extra their drinks will cost.

Today is a great day for Chatlotte.

Cheers, Mr.Richardson.

This hillbilly's shits are smarter than you on your best day...and they make more money.

You're Irish, that's all there is. Let's be honest.

Someone correct me here if I'm missing something

the taxpayers will now have put $185 million into the Panthers organization

JR raised $200 million initially, although the majority of that was from PSLs

so.... PSL + taxpayer money is substantially greater than what JR initially invested. The Panthers net worth is over one billion (and should get a bump from this) and make over $100 million in profit yearly... but taxpayers and PSL owners have zero share in the business and receive none of the actual profit. All that goes to JR and his owner group. Sounds fair.

Maybe I should ask the city council to build me a restaurant or some other business. It will create jobs and revenue for the area after all. You guys foot the bill for me and I'll just show up to collect whatever profit it makes. And of course I'll own it, not the city, so when I sell it that all goes to me as well. Seems like a pretty sweet deal to me.
