Everyone saying that teams would want to move here immediately and all that, why haven't those teams moved to LA yet? What do we have that LA doesn't?

It still requires 75% approval...there are more financially dismal teams out there that would be a better fit. It''s not good business and that's what this is.

Not sure you should be worried and I am not saying you should be. But some of the exact same things were being said about the Hornets.

And when Pat McCrory tells you we don't have the money, remind him that we just gave 100 million dollars so that Met Life could move people from up north to North Carolina, and he turned down 500 million dollars in new revenue, and the Golden Leaf foundation is sitting on 600 million dollars of NC taxpayer money and doing nothing with it.

Funny how all the Republicans on this board who have stood party lines and railed against any tax increases and fought government involvement at all levels are now screaming for a tax hike and begging the state government to step up and keep their beloved Panthers in Charlotte.

[font=Times New Roman","serif][size=3]1. the tax increases on luxury/service items, not on incomes, capital gain (for investing, etc) or things people actually need like the democrats’ want to do. Main things the tax hit are restaurants rental, cars and hotels. [/size][/font]

[font=Times New Roman","serif][size=3]2. fix the waste, fraud, abuse and out of touch spending, and fiscally response people can handle a tax increase, if still needed. [/size][/font]

For those that missed these:

"The NFL’s stadium program isn’t a secret. Created in 2011 to replace a similar program, the[b] NFL’s “G4” loan pool is reserved for stadiums with some public funding or contribution."[/b]

In proposing a [b]hotel and car rental tax[/b], political boosters of a publicly financed stadium for the Minnesota Vikings aren't breaking new ground. The [b]two taxes are the most-often-used methods[/b] of public financing in NFL stadiums. Only [b]one other team -- Seattle -- uses lottery revenue[/b]. [b]The Vikings' 33.3% contribution to the new stadium is about in line with most other cities.[/b]

I've been talking about this for a while now. This is far more important (having a team) than "who will be the third trade for the third round replacement backup after the fifth option on the reserve line backer". Idiots in Raleigh do not understand the value that a NFL team brings to a region . And please don't quote some "study" from a college professor that says it dosen't.

Let's be honest. The only region the Panthers bring value to is Charlotte to SC. Everybody else in the state of NC doesn't benefit from the Panthers. The only time most people get to see the game is on TV. I been a fan my whole life and I never been to a Panthers game.

There would be riots in Charlotte if the Panthers left. I would be there with them to. I love NFL football, but the Panthers make me love it even more. Don't even know if i could watch the NFL anymore without a team in the Carolinas.

This is true of any NFL franchise. Not sure why that justifies the state screwing over one city (the largest by far).

NC is moronic if it doesn't work with the Panthers.
