In Topic: Panthers Front Office has lost it!

18 September 2014 - 12:34 AM

This whole problem goes a lot deeper than our front office. Don't blame this organization. I know people find his hard to believe but the NFL and the Panthers make money from corporate sponsors. The Panthers rely on corporations like Bank of America and Nike and all of those big mega corporations to support them. They will not loose sponsors.


Once they threaten to pull their sponsorships, teams listen. Fact is, all of these corporations hate what is going on and the NFL is having to bow to them. I know people will argue that fans are more important than sponsorships and maybe that is true, but fans will come back. The NFL looses players all the time and they rebuild themselves. Losing sponsorships is another issue.


I really think the NFL wanted all of this to blow over. That was the plan. Until the sponsors started to leave and now this is a huge mess.


Did you hear.. Anheuser-Busch is now talking about the NFL and how upset they are? Look at all the money they spend!! You don't think Roger is just a bit concerned? Jerry Richardson too? Now Bank of America who sponsors our stadium has come out. Come on people.

The Hornets are a hot item in Charlotte now, so I can see plenty of corporate sponsors jumping on board.


I also think MJ's delay to pull the trigger on the name change was entirely marketing itself. He knew from day one that it was a smarter name to market with than the Bobcats. Just wanted to build up the hype and who can blame him?

In Topic: Zach Lowe ranks NBA court designs

I was thinking yesterday. Not one team has a court that represents THEIR team better than the Hornets' court represents them. I know the Celtics floor is legendary with the parquet flooring but the fact that our organization took the extra step to make sure our parquet flooring was laid out in a honeycomb pattern to symbolize hornets is really a unique touch. Nobody else goes that extra mile. Really nice IMO. It would be like if the Lakers floor looked like waves of water. We have something really special.

In Topic: Arena Upgrades Approved; Bonnell: All Star Game Likely

What are they going to improve on? What is there to upgrade?


I thought the same thing. Apparently,  they want to install a HD quality scoreboard, add 500 additional TV monitors, apparently a lot of technology improvements are in the plans.  Plus, an extra 600 seats. I guess the arena ranks near the bottom in lower level seats available.


I'd imagine they'd have to get more seats if they want to attract bigger events like the all-star game.

In Topic: Out of market Huddlers - how are you watching the Panthes games this year?

22 August 2014 - 06:21 PM

I got direct tv and sunday ticket for free this year, just for this exact reason.  Last few years I had to use crappy online streams. Now every year ill threathen to leave direct tv so they will give me sunday ticket free every year.


I hear you. I broke down about two years ago and purchased the online substitution at DirecTV's website. This year, I just got a real satellite and will be watching it from home.


Watching it online, even through DirectTv's severs was frustrating... it constantly locked up, wouldn't load, just total garbage that cost me a ton of money too.


I feel like watching tv shows online is fine, but to stream live feeds is more often than not terrible.
