The scheduling gurus must take many factors into consideration. Not all can be accommodated.

As noted by the Charlotte Business Journal, via Sports Business Journal, the Panthers have a pair of home games that conflict with other local sporting events.

When the Panthers host the Saints on September 25, the final round of the Presidents Cup will be occurring at Quail Hollow Club, which is 12 miles away.

“We tried everything we could to work with them, unfortunately it didn’t seem to work for them,” Quail Hollow president Johnny Harris said.

Two weeks later, the Panthers host the 49ers on the same day of Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Fall NASCAR race, one of the racing league’s playoff events. It happened before in 2000 and 2021, and it didn’t seem to impact either event.

  1. It’s because the scheduling gurus were too busy trying to fit in Tom B. as much as possible. They even went so far as to say, when he unretired they had to adapt the schedule. Do you honestly think they care about the Panthers, with Sam Donald as quaterback. They wouln’t care if the race was run around the stadium, as long as Tom is playing.

  2. Most Carolina residents would rather watch paint dry than Sam Darnold. Panther games will be ghost towns.

  3. The stadium is in downtown Charlotte, the race track is in Concord 17 miles away, probably not going to be a problem

  4. Even as pathetic as NASCAR has become, they will be the draw that weekend and you’ll have five fans and a dozen card board cutouts to worry about.

  5. On the bright side for the Panthers, the amount of people watching the suck on the field live will be a lot less……
