Specifically, the reason behind the escalators (link)

The Carolina Panthers plan to add a pair of top-of-line video boards, enhanced statistics on LED ribbon boards that encircle Bank of America Stadium and other upgrades to their 18-year-old home.

But the top priority in the nearly $300 million renovation plan for Panthers owner Jerry Richardson is both utilitarian and close to his heart: escalators to transport fans to the upper deck.

After a 71-year-old Pinehurst man died walking to his car after a home loss to Atlanta in 2011, Richardson wanted to do more for the team’s older fans, Panthers president Danny Morrison said Monday.

Richardson, 76, who received a heart transplant in 2009, attended the funeral for Bruce Rognon, who was 55 when he bought two PSLs in 1996 during the Panthers’ first season in Charlotte. Sandy Rognon said she and her late husband would take the elevator to the upper deck before games and would walk down afterward.

Rognon, who kept the couple’s seats in section 534, said she was moved to learn that her husband’s death had affected Richardson.

“It’s a little overwhelming for me really,” Rognon said Monday from her home in Pinehurst. “I’m touched that that would have such an impact on him.”
