Tepper says "no way in hell" he'll build a dome

Few even care. Charlotte is beginning to resemble any other generic big city. You would think it wouldn't be a discussion met with ridicule considering everything the world has been through the last year and the increasing wealth gap only growing larger along with the net worth of many of these billionaires. But heads will remain buried in the sand. It is the American way and the wealthy don't want educated consumers they want that cash flow.

 

Charlotte residents have the opportunity to flip the script -- and it all hinges on voting wisely.

Don't vote on party lines, don't vote on skin color...

...ask hard questions and vote on the issues.

Vote Billy Maddalon for CLT City Council this Fall --- he is capable of Just Saying NO to the billionaire Panthers owner.

Wasn't that one of the reasons for talk of a dome?  And people will come where ever the game is.

 

There's no need for a dome in order for Charlotte to host a Super Bowl.  Jets/Giants Stadium hosted a Super Bowl and they don't have a dome.

You're correct, folks will attend regardless of where the game is...

...but Charloot is waaay down the list of preferred destinations ...fans around the country aren't pining to come to the CLT.

Super Bowls should be held in warm weather destinations that offer a wealth of other recreational options...

Out of curiosity I was looking at the historical locations of past Super Bowls and ran across this wiki page:  

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl

Interesting passage in the attached screenshot...

...can CLT provide this?

It's a nice thought but why would anyone want to come to Charlotte for a Super Bowl?

Not sure if you've done a US tour but I have. I think Charlotte is a really nice city. Prepare to be disappointed if you think Charlotte sucks and I'm not from there so I have no skin in that opinion.

I have. 

Agreed, really nice, wouldn't live here if it wasn't. 

Super Bowls should be held in warm-weather/vacation type destinations that offer a wealth of other recreational options...

Many many times. It's OK but lacking in anything not built in the past 20 years. You can only go to so many breweries. It's a very shallow city.

    • I mean stat, wise they’re pretty close…the Jets dline is the best part of the Jets team, but not a great unit overall. Best part of a miserable team doesn’t mean much. Overall the oline ranked 19, but ranked the worst in the league time wise for pass protection. The worst…like bottom (already a thread on this). Just like last year a truly good dline (was the Saints last year as well) will expose just how god awful the oline really is.
    • 1. The Saints are on an 16-0 run against the NFCS and surely want to make it 17-0.  The Panthers have to come out on fire.   If we force a 3 and out on their first series, it's game on for us.  If they walk down the field and score a TD we might be in trouble.  We have to come out with an attitude that we aren't the Panthers of old.   2. Stop the run.  We have to make this a one dimensional game.  Plain and simple. Stop the run and we'll force Winston into mistakes.  If we don't stop the run it's inevitable that we give up a couple of big plays downfield.  3. This will be a true test for our young DBs.  If they can make some plays, which I believe they will, we'll win.  Jackson and Horn are legit cover corners and will make it tough for Winston.  Our nickel will have to be on point or they kill us underneath.   4. Our defensive line is going against a pretty solid O-line but IMO we have an underrated defensive line.  We are solid interior and out the edge.  We have to get pressure on Winston.  I think we'll get 2 or 3 sacks and plenty of pressures.  We have to stop the run. It's the key to winning this game.  5. Offensively we can't start out slow.  We can't go two quarter (nearly 3) without points like we did last week. Darnold showed some grit last week when the Jets got it to a one score game and drove us down for a FG to put us back up by 2 scores.  Turned out to be the game winning drive.  6. Snow and Brady need to be ready to adjust to what the Saints do after half time.  Last week both offensively and defensively we played like a different team in the 2nd half.  Neither Snow or Brady had an answer for the adjustments the Jets made.  The sign of a good OC and DC is the ability to adjust on the fly after half time.  It's seems like a lot of things that have to go in our favor to win.  I believe as long as we don't shoot ourselves in the foot with dropped passes and stupid penalties we will win this game. 
    • I may be wrong, but once a player from the receiving team touched it, they have to clearly possess it to down it. Why the guy didn’t just put his hand on the ball, is beyond me.
