This is complete bullshit by the way. Take the money from Golden Leaf foundation that has taken 600 million dollars of taxpayer money and we could have two new stadiums and not change the state budget at all.

BTW, Republicans should HATE this. This is a local bill that big brother government in Raleigh has stepped in to slap their hands and tell them how to run their local government. It goes against everything that Republicans supposedly stand for.

Any how...I wish Mr Richardson luck in finding ways to better his billion dollar business.

Did you know he could raise $150M for the improvements by just raising ticket prices by $20 over 10 years.

We have perhaps the cheapest NFL franchise in the nation in terms of taxpayer money. Raising ticket prices would be even worse. Blackouts, and perhaps an actual loss of revenue with a disenfranchised fanbase does not bode well for long term stability for a small market team.

Put a winning team on the field and your worries about blackouts all but disappear

a football stadium is not a priority nor should it be. JR wants it done so bad, he can reach into his own pocket or deal with it. Who the fug cares about glitz and glam of the stadium. Only thing I care about is what is going on on the field. They can play on a raggedy pee wee field for all I care. Sure would cost a lot less to watch

You are talking about raising ticket prices by $320 dollars a year for two tickets.

That would not go over well.

I would rather pay .25 cents more for my dinner.

Right. If you can't afford 25 extra cents on your tab dining out, chances are you shouldn't be dining out anyway.

Childish for certain fans to disagree with this tax and having the team be in jeopardy of relocation just to 'stick it to' JR. A bunch of whining, annoying, assholes.

Btw, while you're whining about this, enjoy that electrical increase that the state plans to give Duke Energy, that will affect ALL North Carolina residents.

Funny how every team/fan claims their team is now headed to LA. I guess it would make for short road trips....

Personally I see it as a private industry, I dont care how much money is brought into town for it, raise your own money to operate!

Instead of giving the Joe Flaccos of the World something to the tune of 180,000.00 a day during football season, reinvest in your infrastructure like every other business owner has to. I honestly don't care if each and every player could make two million dollars a game, good for them, but the owners shouldn't cry broke after doing do. This goes for every sports team. Spend within your budget!

Its not about the 25 cents a meal, its about using it for better causes/needs. We still havent completed a damn outerbelt road here, and the sections that are done, already need more lanes. Thats just ONE SMALL example, and something most of Charlotte can benefit from.

There needs to be a Separation of Pro Sports and State.


http://www.fieldofschemes.com/ - Follow this for a while, watch how many teams are "well on their way to LA..."

Better yet, eat out once less a day, and with the money you saved in not being taxed, go buy you the book....

I love football, in fact its the only pro sport I follow now. I support it by attending games and buying merchandise, hell, I even have the NFL package. That should be enough. If its not, the NFL and Owners need a new business plan plain and simple.

They can come make minimum wage where I work...legal or not. Plenty of openings.
Or the government can get smart and start farming the medians along the highways using the labor of those that want a hand-out and are able-bodied.
Piss in this cup and show me you aren't on drugs and you can have a job...otherwise good luck.
I already give up 42% of my paycheck to the Gov. I can't give anymore.



Remind me to call you up for a job if I ever come back to the states.

Welp, I think this is effectively the beginning of the end of our Carolina Panthers. If they leave, Pat McCrory can go fug himself. What a fuging douche. Is it your entire life's purpose to rid our state of all of our professional franchise your fuging retard? See how well our budget and economy is doing once we lose all of our professional franchises you idiot.

I get not wanting to use state money for it, but we had a f'ing governor flying around on our money to take vacations... I'd much rather know that the money is going to something I actually care about. I hate politicians.

If McCrory ends up being responsible for pushing the Panthers out of the Carolinas I'll never vote republican at the state level again.
