How Will The Stadium Deal Shake Out?

Concerning monies for stadium upgrades. IMHO money will magically appear. Of course some feelings will get hurt, be it the streetcar crowd or the convention center saying the Panthers robbed their piggy bank. I'm thinking we're going to hear something next month around draft time...of course I'm just guessing. Just wondering if anyone here knows anything more then what we are hearing.

Neither side will get exactly what they want, as it should be.

Of course the money will come. From where and whom is the only question.

Technically, that's a shuffle if I recall... ;)

Sounds like the Panthers will only get 110 mil re-directed from the convention center funds... will be interesting to see if that affects the length of the tether?

I'm not as optimistic as some. Some of the city officials have serious concerns that the saber rattling is more than just idle threats. Not when Richardson is at the helm but when the new owner or ownership group steps in. At least the street car and light rail won't be so full 10 Sundays a year.

And I also want to point out that just as i said last week they could've announced eleventy bajillion MetLife jobs for Charlotte because its all BS. They are already backing off that huge job number. They are now projecting 40% of the "new jobs" will be filled by relocating current MetLife employees. So all those NC tax dollars are for about 700 new jobs in Charlotte, not 1300. That's still adding some nice tax revenue to the books but I know some progressives support public money for MetLife but not the Panthers. I'm in favor of both. Business, entertainment (ie Panthers), new housing, infrastructure etc. all contribute to making a city and state world class and promote economic growth.

They will get the money to build a new stadium in LA in a few years.
