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.
if they were making all that money back in the form of tax revenues already then they wouldn't need a tax increase. either way, why should money be coming out of my pocket to fun a billionaire's private business? I'm not benefiting from the any profit that JRs business make so why should I foot any of the bill?
