Construction cost $248M back in the 90's.

They now want $200M....They should offer to repay the loan at $10M per year that would tie them to the city for 20 years and we'd recoup the money. I'd be ok with that.

Or give the city 25% ownership of the stadium.


I'd be completely on board with either of these.

I'm not worried about JR moving the team... but I am worried about the next owner, who probably won't have any ties to CLT or the Carolinas.

On the other hand, the NFL doesn't want teams moving unless there is no other viable option. The last team to move was in 95 and it was a PR nightmare. Think of how hard the NFL fought to get a deal done in Minnesota recently and there was every excuse to move that team.

The only thing that pisses me off about this is the fact that I have PSL's and would basically be out the money I put into them.

If JR moves the team to another city, Charlotte would have another franchise in 2-5 years max. This is a revenue generating city and the plan has proven to be successful.

I'd go as far to say that the Jaguars would be on the phone with Charlotte 20 minutes after JR skipped town.

I would walk up to Mr.Richardson and puke in his face

What are the chances the Panthers could relocate to another NC/SC city? I know it's a shot in the dark but you never know.

It would be more likely they go to LA than any other NC/SC city besides Charlotte

Charlotte is the only city in the Carolinas that can sustain an NFL franchise.

Just tell JR they would like to help, but they are up against the Cap hard, perhaps a one year deal.

JR is no Modell or Al Davis. This team isn't just uprooting over one failed tax vote. You are silly to think so.

We havent had a blackout in 12 years....we show up. Maybe win more than 7 games a year and we can work on our passion

About 50% of us show up. The rest are empty seats and opposing fans. That sell out streak is a sham.
