. . . Pass. What's the Hurricanes' ownership look like? Do they have some scratch? Then the people that own the Price's Chicken Coop can get a shot at it, then Jordan, and finally the dude from Hickory that was in the Hemi commercials.

That's my ownership depth chart as of now.

no Vince McMahon?

"Bruton Smith, who once threatened to move NASCAR track out of Charlotte, offers to buy Panthers, not take tax money http://wp.me"

Interesting....He makes Jerry Jones look quiet.

I don't recall all of the exact details, but wasn't he just going to leave Cabarrus Co. and rebuild on the other side of Charlotte, somewhere on the southwest side as I recall.

edit, found it:

Billionaire speedway owner Bruton Smith apparently wasn't kidding when he said he would move Lowe's Motor Speedway from Concord, N.C., to a new site near Charlotte.

Smith declined to encourage speculation that he was considering a move to Rock Hill, saying he has not disclosed where he is looking to move. He did say he was considering about 20 sites within an 18-mile radius of Charlotte/Douglas International Airport.

Yes we do. Hillbillies buy tickes, hillbillies make noise. It's these "arrive-late, rather tailgate, wine and cheesers" that we don't need anymore of. Unfortunately that is the price of having PSLs.

The company I work for has had the pleasure (or displeasure) of working with most of the big wigs in Cabarrus County (and some beyond). The general consensus around the office is that Bruton Smith is the 2nd biggest asshole in our area, second only to Teresa Earnhardt.

I think that he would be worse than Jerry. He's proven time after time that in NASCAR he doesnt care about what the fans or drivers want, all he cares about is profit.

I'm not seeing the difference

He is one of the very few people who could turn me away from being a Panther fan.
