still wrong about how salary caps work


No, I'm not. If you're so magnificently well-informed, explain how we end up well over the salary cap if we're not spending the money.

For the record, it's easy to determine how much a team actually spends per year, based on how much cap space carryover they take into the next season. Considering we have around $3 million total, that means our outlays were $117 million this season. Cheap my ass.

Panthro they are not taxing your house. They are taxing the imbreds from the "upstate" and Cabarrus county that go to the Buffalo Wild Wings next to the NascarHOF

So everyone that goes to BWW is guilty of incest?

I say the Panthers benefit from being in Charlotte more so than Charlotte benefits from the Panthers.


And you would be wrong. The economic footprint provided to local business on game days as well as the socio-economic benefit to the city of having a professional football team as it relates to business growth and real estate sales. You could go on and on, but an NFL team provides the city and surrounding businesses with millions upon millions of dollars of revenue that the team doesn't directly see.

I never said he is not spending money. I am saying that the salary cap in no way reflects the amount of money being spent on a salaries in a given year.

The only amount Jerry is required to pay is the guaranteed amount which is prorated over the length of the contract.

Just because someone signs a $100M contract does not mean he is guaranteed to be paid $100M.

Then we have a fundamental disagreement.

I see it as the opposite.

Not that is really gives definite answers, and has flaws. But there is an interesting study about the economic impact of pro sports in Charlotte.

If you don't like city governments giving tax money to teams, just stick with that complaint. I can at least respect that opinion. But people calling JR cheap is total bullshit.

So do lot's of other billion dollar businesses in CLT. Glad you are ok with corporate welfare.
