Well if reports are true Rock Hill are the ones at fault…. Yes I do see this as how it might play out in Charlotte…. I guess we will know more in a year or 2 but it seems moving the team and or having a fully funded stadium is the end game here … Tepper understands money so expect the most money play. which in my opinion is a more marketable city with a new tax payer fund stadium!! wish I had a few billy we the people deserve ownership haha:..  

Honestly, I'm close to he point with Tepper that I'd prefer he just take the team and be gone. Give the Carolinas an opportunity for a fresh start.

Unless he goes overseas, he’s not going anywhere. These days, Charlotte is a bigger media market that Pittsburg and Baltimore. There isn’t a larger market left  without a team.

The Austin/San Antonio market would like a word.

Well charlotte is the biggest banking city in the east coast behind New York .. maybe this is where he wants to be being a hedge fund banker and all.. head quarters might want to move to charlotte … but from the sound of it he has dished out over 100 million for a unfinished project because the town where it is at has failed there contract …. So I’m sure tepper pissed … but remember owning a sports team comes with major tax breaks

They’re considered separate media markets. Anyway, they’re not putting a team between Dallas and Houston.

It will happen eventually, there are almost 6m people in the Austin/SA area. Texas has the second highest state population in the US. Florida has a lower population than Texas but has 3 teams.

And the majority of those people are cowboy fans. It would be a major disaster if another NFL team moved to Texas. Ain't nobody going to those games unless that new team is playing the cowboys.

From Quora.  This makes some sense:

 

Quote

If the NFL were to bring a team to San Antonio that would dilute the potential fan base for the other two established teams. This is also why Birmingham, which has had several well-attended teams in alternate leagues, has never been looked at by the NFL — fans here are already directed to the Titans or the Falcons.
