Pat McCrory says there is no money for the stadium.

I don't believe #5 for a hot minute.

I understand govt giving out money to promote business. I'd be fine with money for a baseball stadium and giving money to google to build a data warehouse but these are for renovations. There's no return.

You should, we know how Carolina fans are by now...just look at the seats after halftime. And I have heard about players not liking the faculties and siging else where, in a close choice. Take it as you will...

The return is, JR does not decide to move the team elsewhere. May not happen this or next, but if he decides to move over this...they will evently.

Jobs are jobs. See Obama's infrastructure plan. He doesn't distinguish between temp jobs and full time jobs.

An argument can be made for the City, giving "something", but for the state it's not a good investment.

Chiquita got $22 million from the city AND state to relocate here from Cincy. That was for an estimated 400 jobs. Siemens got $22 million from NC for their expansion in Charlotte. What did they add, a few hundred jobs? The Panthers should get state and local funding.

You know better than this comparison.

I wonder how many folks from simiens will leave their jobs to serve hohos in the new club seats...

Strong logic here.

First of all, assholes, Pat McCrory is no longer mayor of Charlotte. He's governor of NC.

Second of all, the state has no business funding private enterprise.
