Jerry Richardson's meeting with Thom Tillis

Jerry Richardson met with Thom Tillis seeking $62 million from NC taxpayers, plus the remainder of an estimated $250 million from the City of Charlotte, to renovate Bank of America stadium.


but...but...but...what's more important than FOOTBALL?

What a crock. I honestly think if they do this taxpayers ought to rebel. The dorks here wanted $40 Mil for baseball...and the people got enough signatures on a petition to force it to a ballot. FAIL. Politicians must be drinking sewer water cuz they're crazier than outhouse rats.

Give a man a fish...

....and he'll be hungry again tomorrow.

Give a multi-millionaire a football stadium, and he'll be back in 10 years demanding a new stadium or else he'll move the team somewhere else.


The measure of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. - FDR

Looks like Tillis won't try to fleece the whole state

but will likely give the Queen City permission to fleece local taxpayers. Interesting how "home rule taxing power" is a fitting solution for communities that want to placate a bunch of brain-damaged jocks, but not appropriate for communities that want to provide next-generation internet services to their citizens.
