Not much new here. State is still

Holding their ground. I'd rather eat a turd than even consider rooting for the redskins. I'd just go back to my college love.

I was just thinking the same thing. Someone I knew I would read the article and it would do nothing to really halt the concern of losing the team. That article didn't say anything of the sort

Can we put the brakes on the Chicken Little move to LA, pull for the Redskins talk.......this Panthers are OUR team.

Even if that passes the state is still short 40 million dollars and it's not likely that will pass either. The article I posted, mentions that bill going to state and how that it isn't enough to get the job done.

Not really! The wife and I make a trip of it! Two nights at doubletree and bar hopping. Adds up quick!

Completely random but I love Doubletree! Underrated hotel brand to me

california panthers would probably be what the name would be changed too. Only would have to buy a few more letters.

With the way northerners are moving to Charlotte we might have a chance to move the bills here some day when the panthers leave.

Ha! Ain't that the damn truth. I bet the Bills would fill up BofA.

I might as well think it's funny since I have no control over it and it's just a sport. There is no sense getting upset about it.

If the Panthers left I would not feel so inclined to waste so many beautiful Sundays inside being frustrated and more time outside hiking, biking, camping, etc.

I hear ya. In my mind all that outside hiking, biking, boating, camping, trail running would suck compared to following the panthers.

Just curious if anyone listens to WBT 1110 here in the Charlotte area. Keith Larson (morning talk show guy) was ranting about tax money for the Panthers this morning. Not trying to start up the tax argument again but listening to some the callers to the show, you could tell these people were clueless about the NFL, the Panthers or life. All of them (if I can repeat my analogy) act as if JR has a gun to their head demanding thier wallet. This crap is really getting frustrating....the state pisses away so much of our tax dollars, but can't help support the regions NFL team in anyway. Anyhow heres the latest. BTW if you look at some of the comments after the article, you can get a feel of what the average caller was like.

Most of these people bitching are probably transplants from Buffalo or Ohio or PA. They could not care less about the Panthers because they go to their shitty local bar and watch their shitty hometown teams. We are talking about a small tax on food and beverage and in the grand scheme, a reasonable amount of $$ from the state. Write your state reps, that's about all you can do. I live in SC so I don't have a vote that counts.
