Charlotte Council approves plan to give Panthers $125 million

102 posts in this topic

Panthers make noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowhere near $100 million yearly. If they did their valuation wouldn't be as small as $1 billion, Jesus. I would be very surprised if they had a net yearly income of more than $10 million.

from what I understand from the CBA they decided to split profits between owners and players right at about 50/50. With the salary cap being at $120 million that means the owners should be pulling in $100+ million on average a year. That's how I understood it at least, if you have an actual source that shows otherwise go for it but honestly the actual amount makes no difference to this discussion

They split total revenue, not profit. Jerry has some pie charts to show you.

The Panthers net worth is over one billion (and should get a bump from this) and make over $100 million in profit yearly...

Yeah....no. The Panthers don't make anything close to a 100 million dollar profit yearly.

MAYBE 15-20 million, MAYBE.

I don't agree with the city being so eager to throw money at the team, but your statement is just wrong. There are only a few teams in the NFL that make that kind of money and we are certainly not one of them.

I like him. He seems like he's all business, pretty much the opposite of Marty Hurney

would it cost taxpayers $185 million? whose the moron ffs

It also cost people with no kids to pay for other people with kids schooling. Or pay for a street in neighborhood that I will never go to to get fix. You talk about 185 million. How much money has he made for and brought to the city? When you realize that. Then you would understand why you should Stfu.

lol ok revenue then

i googled and it said the packers made $43 million in 11-12 and that's the only public numbers you're going to find

as I said though the amount really has nothing to do with anything here. bottom line is JR has grown a massive amount of net worth and profits while taxpayers and and PSL owners foot the bill. At least with PSLs you had to be stupid enough to sign up for that voluntarily unlike the increased taxes I will be forced to pay... hooray for that.

Also, to the people complaining, it is a mathematical certainty, that the Panthers have paid for 185 Million the city invested with the jobs, tourism, and merchandise that were brought here. Not to mention the taxable income of the multiple millionaires the team brought with it over the years. It's as good a use of public funds as those cats are going to make. What's the second best use of public funds lately? The light rail? Which would probably be no good without the stadium.

The Green Bay Packers have reported a net income of $17.1 million, according to published figures from their annual report, which was released today.

That’s an $11.9 million increase from the $5.2 million in net income the organization reported in 2010. It primarily came from investments.

Unfortunately, the franchise’s operating profit increased only modestly — from $9.8 million in fiscal year 2010 to $12 million, a $2.2. million increase. The organization — and here’s more lockout rhetoric — cited rising player costs, just as they did when they released last year’s annual report, as the culprit.

Part of the issue was the costs associated with the Packers four postseason road games.

The Packers claim the thin operating profit would have been even thinner if it weren’t for the lockout.

The $2.2 million increase in operating profit – from $9.8 million last year to $12 million this year – was almost entirely due to a $2 million drop in player costs. That drop was mostly a function of the work stoppage, which prevented the team from signing any players to contracts during March, the final month of the fiscal year when the normal free-agent signing period opens.

Had there not been a work stoppage, it’s reasonable to assume the Packers would have signed another player or two in March and the operating profit would have remained stagnant, or even fallen below last year’s, despite a Super Bowl title.

Of course, that’s looking at only one part of the equation. Have the Packers factored in how much the lockout crushed the goodwill of their Super Bowl run and alienated casual fans with disposable income?

I doubt it.

Here are some other highlights of the report.

  • Gross revenue rose 9.5 percent to $282.6 million, an all-time high.
  • Expenses rose 9 percent to $270.6 million.
  • Player costs and team expenses accounted for 72 percent of total expenses.
  • National revenue, including the league’s television contract, rose 3.6 percent.
  • Local or stadium revenue rose 18 percent. A significant portion of this came from an increase in Pro Shop business and an increase in ticket prices.

    • At first I didn't like the guy but he put his money where his mouth is. Gave a ton to Charity and really backed up his talk of trying to makechange. If he continues on his charitable ways thru out his NFL career I hope he stays in the NFL for years to come.
