Where are we going to play during this multi-million dollar upgrade?

Unless they move to Kings Mountain and start over, there will never be a true tailgate experience at Panther Stadium.

Why not? The tailgating is the best aspect of the game day experience we have. It beats or equals other places I have seen.

There will not be a single home game missed due to improvements. That I can assure. Doing that is completely out of question and would be the first requirement in how the upgrades are designed and the execution is planned.

LOL isn't the capacity there like 40,000?

We don't want to make the Buccs feel good about themselves.

ha no. Its capacity is around 15,000. Expandable to 40,000, then to 60,000.

However, it may be perfect size at 15,000 if we fill it with JUST Panther fans. We would need at least 60,000 to fit the rest of the stadium who are the fans of the visiting team.

They arent going to play elsewhere.

If need be, they would do it in stages over a few years.

MSG has been doing this the past 3 years. It's not a big deal.

how is the unions' grasp on construction in NC?

because if it's half as suffocating as it is in NJ this poo's never getting done lol

No construction unions in the South. If there were, this would start out as a $250M job, finish as a $500M job and it would be falling apart in 10 years...

It better include a couple jumbotrons the size of the ones they have in Washington. The screens in BOA are embarrassingly small...like 60" or so.

And, no, it won't take anymore than a single off-season to accomplish what they're going to do.

Green Bay's reno in 2003 was $295M and their current reno is $143M.

They can add entire 15,000 seat sections to college stadiums in the offseason...0.0 chance they go anywhere else for a season.

The jumbotrons are 31 x 71 feet in dimension...not 60 inches
