There is no bigger pit of a cesspool than LA...crime ridden, gangs, congested, expensive, and those are its better qualities.

You're grossly exaggerating

People in the Raleigh-Durham area always hate on Charlotte for some reason. Must be an inferiority complex or something. But Bomani Jones doesn't know sh!t so his words don't really mean anything pertaining to the Panthers.


You do know there is no such city as Raleigh-Durham. There is Raleigh and there is Durham and they are two absolutely totally different cities.

Raleigh-Durham is the airport.

As far as cities, i like both Charlotte and Raleigh. They too, have very different vibes.

Nope, sorry lived there, worked there and also worked in Orange County.

If one likes self-obsession, LA and OC are both great places as well.

Yeah, in Durham if you take the wrong turn, just might be your ass. Kinda rough. Just like on the gridiron, you better keep your head on a swivel (which I tend to do regardless---being raised up north).

I've only been through there. What surprised me about Cali in general is the large areas of "nothing" but farming and semi-desert. Of course it has been about 15 years, but most of humanity was over the mountains on the coast. I remember being in my truck in one town, I looked to my left and looked to my right and saw only Hispanics in some towns---no whites or blacks. It was interesting.

People who suggests Carolina may move....

Don't take the time to do 2 minutes of research and just make assumptions.

Carolina isn't just one of the most successful NFL teams it is one of the most successful professional sports organizations. So what exactly would they be moving for?

Do not sell the Charlotte market short. It is very supportive and a growing TV market. There are 15 less relevant teams that would make the move before the Panthers.

Of course keeping LA open gives the owners and the NFL leverage to upgrade all stadiums.

Yeah if any team moves it will be one that doesn't sell out every game.

Doesn't matter if its psl holders selling tickets or dedicated fans, it's the same amount of money either way.

Jones is a guy who's known for failing to cite his sources.

It's rumored that his ass is considering filing a lawsuit for plagiarism.

Yeah, lets move to LA bc it sucks being one of the most successful franchises in all of professional sports.....

Tampa and Jacksonville should both move.....that state can't support 3 teams and college sports

Not the first time I've heard him take a shot at Charlotte.

Does he really live in Durham?
