Somebody just sent me a link 10 minutes ago. Apparently, Blank will only be paying 650 million. The city of Atlanta will be left to pay the rest.



But who owns the Stadium in Atlanta? That could be a the big difference.

Doesn't the city own The Georgia Dome?

I looked it up. You're right, Georgia Dome is owned by the state.

Blank is paying $800m while Atlanta would be on the hook for $200m


Atlanta paying $200m to replace a stadium that the city/ state already paid for with tax dollars vs. Charlotte being asked for $144m for renovations on s stadium that the tax monies DID NOT pay for.

Anyone who can't see the financial and logical difference in these two situations is hopeless

Both are owners using emotional leverage to squeeze local governments for handouts for their own personal gain.

It's not as bad as how bad Mike Brown and the Bengals fleeced Hamilton County, at least.

I am not debating whether public funds should go to support private businesses...that is another debate entirely. City and state governments subsidize every major corporation that they are trying to lure or keep in their tax jurisdiction.

I am just pointing out that the total gov't funding for the renovated Panthers Stadium (if the proposal were expected) is HUGELY less than the amount that Atlanta has pumped into the existing and newly proposed stadiums......because someone brought up Atlanta as an example of something that was better.
