For those that missed these:

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

http://www.miamihera...or-stadium.html

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

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.

I understand what you are saying. I guess what i'm really trying to say is if the Panthers was in a city like Raleigh the whole state would benefit from it. Charlotte is like a whole different state compared to the rest of NC. Plus Charlotte is really far away.

It also seems that most of the people here are from outside of the Clt area....especially the Raleigh area.

Anyone that differs the Panthers don't benefit the whole state or states is high on crack.

This thread needs to stay at the top for as long as it takes to ensure the Panthers stay in Carolina

There is no better atmosphere in the country than the Carolina's and its imperative the Panthers stay

The Panther's gave the state the end of the month to let them know the direction that the tax increases are headed. After that who knows what happens. .
