Fuggin-A, Fug. That's fugging exactly who the fug I fugging want to fugging draft. Fug, I was fuggin onboard the fuggin Fug bandwagon until you explained why in the fug you thought it would be a fuggin good fuggin pick. I fuggin want him because, fug, he's gonna be a fuggin beast at RG for a fuggin decade. Not because he's a fuggin exteam mate of fuggin Cam. I have plenty of fuggin ex-high school fuggin team mates that I would never fuggin hire.
In the grand scheme, if I spend $48 or $58 when I take my wife to Golden Coral for our anniversary, it's an extra $10, what's the big deal? She can have all the cotton candy and chocolate wonderfall she can eat and i can get a hand job on the ride home. The original proposal would have only cost me an additional $.50, but your plan works just as well. I'm willing to pay for stuff that brings me pleasure and entertainment.
Short term no. But with the 15 year tether being taken off the table, all bets are off once team is sold. Based on public comments, JR wants this team to stay here. His attempts to get the city and state to have a financial stake in the game serves two purposes; it saves him money (obviously) but it also sets up obstacles for a new owner to pull out of Charlotte. The city and state buying in would make it hard for a new owner to up and move and the original deal would have built up a reseve for a new stadium if needed 15-20 years down the road. All that has changed now because of NC's position on the matter. A new owner is going to want things to increase revenue. It will cost + $1 Billion to buy this team. A new owner will not spend a billion to buy and then millions more for projects to upgrade revenue streams. He will ask the city and state for money. Money that will be twice what JR is asking for today. A pissing match will ensue between the city/state and the new owner. It is then that we will see just how serious the new owner is about moving the team. The unknown is JR's lifespan and whether or not he sells before he passes.
