Jerry Richardson issues statement on L.A. speculation

Panthers owner Jerry Richardson just issued a statement on the persistent speculation about his team and the Los Angeles market.

The statement reads: “It has always been my desire that the Carolinas would be the hone of our Panthers. Nothing has changed. As someone who was born in North Carolina and live much of my life in South Carolina, I hope that there would be no doubts about my personal devotion to the Carolinas.”

All that’s really happening now is the normal leverage game you’d expect, when the former head of the NFL’s stadium committee is looking for public money to help with renovations to his stadium.

    God. Make the LA talk stop, for every current team.

    All LA needs is the Lakers.

    Everbank Field was renovated since the birth of the Jags. Bank of America Stadium is still in it’s original form since the team was awarded to Carolinas.

    BOA Stadium has a nice deceiving facade with bells and whistles here and there, but when you get down to the meat and potatoes of the technology, it’s very archaic.

    The basketball town Charlotte only has a NFL team because Bank of America is there. Those Carolina ‘sellouts’ are for the most part corporations having tons of PSL’s.

    This is such garbage. BofA has 90% of their front office personnel in NYC. They hardly move the needle on attendance and PSLs. It’s CEO lives in Boston. They barely contribute to the Charlotte economy anymore.
