The stadium will still be full of other teams fans whether or not JR gets his cool new escelators or shiny video boards.

If we had went 11-5 last season I doubt we would be talking about this on the other hand

Winning cures everything even talks about skippin the franchise out of town please win in '13

That is why I feel we are not so far down the list as people think. When the NFL does return to LA, and it will happen, they want it to be an immediate success. They do not want to put a franchise there that will not generate interest. What other team could possibly move there that would bring the same type of excitement that Cam would?

Cam is a dynamic player but not to the level you guys think And I love cam

Couple of things people have brought up I think are either valid or wrong

1. Panthers own the stadium if they move they lose a lot of money with a empty stadium

2. Golden Leaf does provide a lot of money to companies. Due some research

3. If the Panthers move because of this good riddence.

Owning the stadium is what makes moving easy, they have no lease. The NFL leases are super expensive with usually ridiculous buyouts. JR could keep the stadium in Charlotte open for events year round to make the money to keep it up.

Correct again. Charlotte really does suck as a sports town.

We have forum full of people who post night and day about this team and I am surprised to see how many people say they have never attended a game.

They do some stuff and have fulfilled around 950 grants in 14 years, but mostly small grants, with only a few larger ones.

And they have stockpiled 600 million dollars of taxpayer money which it currently is pretty much sitting on.

The GA either needs to stop the flood of taxpayer money going to the foundation, or it need to require them to spend it rather than stockpile it. I don't care either way, but it is ridiculous that they have over a half of a billion dollars in taxpayer money in their war chest.

The stadium being full with panther fans will come when the younger generation fans get older and are able to afford seats. The first generation of panther fans typically liked another team before the panthers existed so they dont have that die hard loyalty that the younger fans do. Give it time.

It blows the mind. Especially when you can scalp tickets from lazy PSL owners for literally a few bucks before any game.

Those people are usually the ones shouting "go find a new team if you don't like it."

Although we don't hear from them as much after 4 non winning seasons.
