this. Panthers pocketed $112M between 2010 and 2011, on the basis that they wouldn't know what the lockout would bring...fine, I get that this is not the normal operating situation. Why can't that same $112M that was saved not be applied towards the $200M or whatever they want to spend on re-doing a 15 year old stadium?
I guess in principle I'm against using public money to fund private enterprises. It's wrong at every level but especially when the city can't pay for it's own obligations.
