So they wouldn't be hiring construction crews for the renovations? JR and Danny are gonna build that poo themselves? Evil money hoarders!!!11!!


I'm not sure you are following my logic. (If logic can ever be equated to anything I say)

I am consistently impressed on the fleece job the Panthers FO puts over on fans.

I was once too blind, but now I see.

Has this thread now compared the Panthers to Apple and Google?

Really now ?


People won't go to the games b/c the WiFi is weak ? Well maybe in Charlotte...

Shame Richardson hasn't put this much effort into putting together a winning team...


I'm 100% with you on the product sucking and am just as pissed. However, the city and state need to kick in like they do for every other corporate project or special interest money grab.

JR has next to zero risk (PSL/Football TV Deals) on a 300+ million investment that is now worth 1 Billion. He basically threw a season a few years ago b/c (lol at this) he wanted to make sure the FO people kept getting paid and wanted to protect his own pocket. His franchise has NEVER had consistent winning teams, he has NEVER embraced the community on a media level and despite his promises to be more visible his most recent appearances have been nothing more than posturing to take TAXpayer money to pay for HIS stadium.


NFL players usually risk life and limb to make on average (guessing) 400K for 5 years... so 2 million, but they are the ungrateful overpaid evil people here.


One person here is working to improve themselves without asking money from people much much less wealthy than themselves. The other produces a poo product and plays on the hopes and fears of his customers.

yeah.

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

If you can find me 5 other NFL franchises that have cost the taxpayers less money than the Panthers have I will give you a nickel (times are tough, that is all i can spare)

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.
