Mecklenburg County already has some of the highest property taxes in the Southeast...so they tax something else. Like all the food people will buy in the stadium.


Well since you put it like that, those enormous steelers fans should pay for the upgrades by themselves at our preseason finale.

The Panthers could buy out the contract or someone like Los Angeles could buy it out if they wanted the team bad enough. This does make it less likely and certainly it would not happen anytime soon but could happen before 15 years.


According to the article in the CO, the city could sue the panthers if they tried to relocate before the 15 years and the jurisdiction would be in NC courts.

Just remember the NFL is a non-profit tax exempt entity. How they get away with that, God know.

We are Trillion of dollars in debt and the NFL is allow to exist as a non-profit. How is that possible?

Trillions of dollars in debt and you're worried about the NFL? We have bigger fish to fry to get rid of all that debt.

Every bit counts. Besides the NFL should not be considered a non-profit. None of the other sports leagues are.

It's not considered a non-profit. The NFL has a 501( c ) (6) tax exemption, not 501( c )(3). And to be clear, teams and team owners have to pay taxes. Only the NFL entity itself is tax-exempt.
