The deal has been done for while with Charlotte Pipe....I bought real estate back there after hearing about it 2 months ago.  But it’s a 10 year project....lot of cleanup needed for that land.   And they will keep the current stadium as a multi use stadium and have a land bridge connecting the two stadiums. 

Where would you recommend I buy this land at again? Always looking for investment advice :)

Cant see 2 stadiums. that is a waste of space. Tepper wants the area used year round and could see a complex with shop restaurants and fan experiences.

Do you really want to spend $500MM on new roof for 30 year old stadium instead of building brand new stadium for $1.5B?

More like 200 million to 250 million (increased cost since 2014) with the city splitting it for their share around 100-125 million versus 750 million or 7 times that for half of a  new dome. It really isn't close.

Charlotte Pipe and Foundry is looking for new location in South Carolina and they will put their current land up for sale.  They are down to 2 locations so their search should be coming to an end soon.  They currently own 55 acres right beside Panthers stadium (Panthers stadium sits on only 25 acres).  When land becomes available, expect Tepper to move fast.  I believe this is one of the reasons he’s rushing with MLS franchise.

 

They are actually looking at moving to an area near me in Oakboro, NC not SC

Unless they are planning to move that rail road, I don't think a new stadium fits there

Current Panthers video screens cost $250MM.  The stadium is not designed for roof so you have to drill and install new beams that will support the roof.  Then you need to install new video screens in the middle of the stadium roof as there no space...  Tepper wants retractable roof so that’s not an option... means Panthers would need to destroy thousands of end-zone seats to install new monitor and tell season ticket holders “sorry”.  Do you think Tepper is the man that will spend $500MM to cut short his own revenue flow?

Negative.  Tepper wants it in uptown.  The only issue was land... now he will have almost 90 acres.

Clt City Council will assuredly screw this up...and not convinced Raleigh will come thru....I wouldn’t dismiss SC just yet

PS:  I hate domes and artificial turf

So are you in on the plans or what? Never heard this before?

Knew about this for a few months as a family member works in the industry that helped that company. She said “apparently the panthers are interested in the land since the company is moving”

didnt want to post because I didn’t want to leak info or get her in trouble. But they’ve been looking for a few months

Also I thought it was common knowledge the stadium or new stadium will be built in 4-5 years. There is a reason the panthers are offering this year “4 years of no interest on PSL purchases”. They don’t want to offer a longer deal as it will be longer than the current PSL for the old stadium

Despite its age Panther stadium was built with two levels of suites, a lot of club seats, and more.  The main things many of the older stadiums did not have and a big reason  why  new ones were built.  There’s also plenty of room and space to add things.  It’s still a great stadium.  So yeah, in favor of spending on the current place.

The City has seen the writing on the wall and there are only a few decision makers that oppose it. They know what a new stadium could bring to the city.

Not to mention hosting a SB in Charlotte that will bring people from across the country to the Carolina's. This would bring a lot of revenue for the 2 states along with more fans and tourists to the location.

    • I want the old Luke back he looked bad last year and last game he couldn’t get off any blocks and over running the plays again 
    • It is on Manhertz, it's also on Cam. Cam couldn't handle the jailbreak blitzes they were throwing at the team. They simply sent more rushers than there were blockers. When that happens there is always one or more uncovered receivers, the QB has to find them, fast, and fire. If you win it, you probably score big. If you lose, it's a sack. Most QBs coming  off of  their break aren't up to game speed yet and Cam didn't pass the test. The point is, those kind of  blitzes are rarely done in the preseason, kind of a gentleman's agreement between coaches to keep from getting  QBs injured. Guess what Belichick does? He goes after your weaknesses no matter when it is. He doesn't play by unwritten rules (or written ones when it suits him). And now we have an injured QB. If you really look at the original play in question, the jailbreak blitz is obvious with seven men rushing the line and an eighth joining in quickly after the snap. Before the snap, Cam sees the situation, calls an audible and begins to drop back. His drop back is deep and he realizes the pressure has broken with Manhertz getting beat to the outside. Others were getting  beat and gaps were being shot. He starts to scan but doesn't get enough time to find his hot read. Sack. I'm chalking it up partially to Manhertz who I don't think is really that great of a blocking TE, and to Cam who in later season form would have dropped back two steps and shot the tight gap to Manhertz's left and made a few yards. He may have also been able to catch his hot read with a fast pass.  It's preseason, though, and the team isn't playing up to game speed yet. The Patsies came in gunning for him. They sacked him there and eventually hurt Cam in the preseason yet again. I'm sure Belichick puts that as a positive in his ledger for how the season plays out.
