Panthers (TSE) HQ


Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has heard anything between the Panthers (TSE) and Rock hill/York County since the vote and proposal. TSE fund the whole project in exchange of tax credit which the council says would look life their paying the Panthers back. IMO I would hope David Tepper would accept the offer and get the project up and running again and back to set deadline. If something looks like it's going array after accepting the offer then take the council back to the bargaining table. JMO

I honestly try to tune it out. If I didn't I couldn't be an NFL fan. There's nothing enjoyable about watching billionaires fleece tax payers out of millions.

Yes, but he will be paying the billionaire tax in the near future.  1/2 of 1 % will hurt him.

I get what you are saying - but ED incentives give an entity a “credit” on new investment created, not existing investments.  So taxpayers are not footing the bill for anything.  In fact, incentives that help drive public infrastructure improvements does quite the opposite by reducing the burden on taxpayers who otherwise would pay more in taxes to fund those improvements.

France, Spain, and Norway tried that. It didn’t do anything. They repealed them.

Subject A: passionate, dedicated fanbase and a franchise that has loads of recent success + a very bright future

Subject B: the panthers

The Bills have earned a passionate fanbase.

Likewise, the Panthers have earned the fanbase they have.

Don’t expect Tepper to sent a different precedent. The NFL won’t let him pay for it himself even if he was willing to do it.

"The Bills have earned a passionate fanbase."...which most have moved to North Carolina.

Well, I'd say a guy who's know to stick others with lunch and dinner checks might not be up to paying for a stadium himself anyway 😐

As it goes to a new stadium Tepper has no say in the matter...

...assuming (dolts on) the Charloot City Council and the Governor of NC do their job...

...how are you voters feeling about these elected officials?

In case you don't remember Gov. Pat McCrory Just Said No to Jerry R. when ran his stadium-upgrade-funding conjob but Charloot City Council didn't have the balls to do the same 🤦‍♂️
