Charlotte Worried about stalled talks with Panthers

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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.

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.

I've gotten in for free several times from PSL owners.

Or Baltimore, or Denver, or Phily, or Washington, or The Giants, or Jets, or Patriots, or Browns, or Miami, or Pittsburgh, or Green Bay, or San Fran, or Minnesota, or Chicago. Anytime the above teams are in town their fans gobble up the seats from our crap fans.

I mean.... it is almost like we have only been around less than 20 years or something and don't have the same long and storied history like some of the teams mentioned above.

Wait.

If the Panthers won a Super Bowl in their short history would Charlotte be a better sports town? or if the Hornets never moved and won a ship or if the Bobcats won a ship would Charlotte be a better sports town?

Things to ask yourself...

Charlotte needs that jewelry but we gotta keep a team here long enough to actually get it to stick

My answer to your first question would be no. Charlotte is in a bad situation because 70% of the population is from New York or the Midwest. 15% root for the Steelers, Cowboys, or Skins. Then there are the 15% of us who diehard the Panthers. DirecTv doesn't help things because transplants can sit at home and watch their home team with their kids so they never get an emotional attachment by even having to watch the team on TV.

There is a lot more to it than just this. Our fans and atmosphere were significantly better in the 90's thn they are now. You can put some blame on ownership but as most people who don't live in Charlotte would agree.....Charlotte is just a pretty lame and bland city.

I wouldn't go as far as saying Charlotte is a bland or lame city. There are not too many places I haven't been in the country that I would rather live....that being said I say the city/fans are committed to the Panthers as much as they are committed to their fans.

True. I was talking about the tickets. They were very hard to find cheap for the dallas game.
