Looks like we less to worry about if McCrory prevents the stadium upgrades from happening.

If you were one of those seriously worried about losing the Panthers to LA, then you're stupid. I don't understand how such retarded talk like that even gets started and then blown out of proportion. *NEWS FLASH* The Panthers are not fuging moving.

Who would pony up the cash for a stadium without a team lined up? That would be insanely stupid.

Couldn't care less about what they do/don't do in LA.

Yep. Kick ass tex-mex food aplenty. Existing dome to play in while a new stadium is built. Did i mention the kick ass tex-mex food?

Hell, I'd move a team to San Antonio for a bottomless bowl of queso.

The stadium would not have broken ground until a team was signed. I think.

Once a team decides it wants to move they will figure out the stadium pretty quick. I think it will happen in the next few years.

Please...you need to learn a little about the history of the NFL before you have to the gall to call me stupid. Read, if you can, about the 1995 Browns, and how they had a 11-5 season and looked to be going to the Super Bowl the next year with Belichick at head coach, only to find out they were being moved half way through the season. Cleveland might be a craphole, but it had rabid and loyal fans, and the franchise was on the rise, yet they still got moved. Please check yourself before you think we'd be 100% safe.

For clarification, they were 11-5 in 1994, at the time the move was announced in 1995 they were 4-5 on the year and finished 5-11. If you look at them under Belichick, they were 6-10, 7-9, 7-9, 11-5, 5-11. The one year was an aberration, and they were never legitimate title contenders, or perennial playoff contenders, as you make it sound.

Naw, JR would never move the team to LA...possibly another city in the South, but not LA...

JR will make a BUSINESS decison to go where the city/state wants them. This is usually shown in tax breaks and funds to upgrade. Columbia SC missed out on them, mainly due to USC (they keep out all professional teams). Funds where in Charlotte and not here, guess where the Panthers went? JR wanted them IN SOUTH CAROLINA and still went to Charlotte. Nope, we are not 100% safe....
