Tepper wants us to fail...

Moving the team (aside from the other factors already pointed out) presupposes that there is a city/market that wants an NFL team and that the league wants to put one there.

 

Cant really think of a city/market that wants one that didnt tell the last one to go spit when it came time to build/upgrade their facilities.

he's not ditching a built in fanbase with phenomenal infrastructure 

panthers have one of the most fairweather fanbases in the NFL. I don't think Panthers fans will stick around for a decade of futility. In 2026 the stadium will be 30 years old and is already one of the oldest in the NFL. If this team continues down the road they're going I think it becomes a real conversation to move the team.

central texas is ripe for a team. just wait. 

So what happens if Tepper does move the team there? Is he going to move again when he inevitably alienates those fans too? What's the endgame outside of "build an actual winning franchise"?

Right there between Austin and San Antonio

Yep I totally imagine a stadium being build in New Braunfels and a train being built between Austin and SA. They added games to add teams.

There's no chance that either 1995 expansion team is in its first city by 2030.

Jacksonville definitely has the higher chance of moving but the Panthers are not out of the question.
