You can put a crappy team on the field year after year and still be a top 10 profitable NFL franchise. Yeah, sounds good to me.

If it actually happens and the Panthers move we will have franchises begging to move here....the good news is we will be free of JR's crappy ownership and might actually have a chance of winning consistently under Panthers v2.0


Yeah and if say, Tom Benson bought the team we could name it the Carolina TomCats.

He's actually left that open even if a team moves, saying that the NFL views LA as a two team city and would be willing to relocate two teams to the LA area if the stadium deal can get worked out.


L.A. Jaguars and the L.A. Panthers. lmao


hadn't heard that yet, talk about the ultimate trump card, sheesh

Raising the long-held league belief that L.A. is a two-team market, Goodell wrote: "Consistent with our long-standing view, we have made it clear that any stadium seeking investment support from the 32 member clubs should preserve a viable option of being able to host two teams at appropriate times and on appropriate terms."

Maybe, but them being a really close and good friend who he trusts that also attends Panther games in the owners box.


You know how close they are? lol

It's almost like JR intentially developed that relationship so he could use it as leverage to extort the city and state for money.

But nahhhh... my beloved JR would never do anything like that.

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.

We wouldn't be the Panthers anymore though. We'd have some new lame ass expansion name/logo. The Panther is a badass team mascot and we have sick colors. The logo was designed after NC/SC. Everything the panthers were intended to be would be thrown away. It would be a very sad day for us fans.


I just can't see us moving. It seems way too much like a sum of all fears for it to happen. Every real Panther fans worst nightmare is for the team to move.

Did they move the Browns name to Baltimore?

Well, no not personally. It's just mentioned a lot. My guess is they became friends when JR was still the Stadium chairman of the NFL.

However I wouldn't put anything past a smart business owner.
