$100 million dollars is the difference in the Carolina Panthers staying in Charlotte, NC or leaving for the bright lights of Hollywood, CA, as a Charlotte politician is claiming that the Panthers are on the pathway of leaving Charlotte.According to Charlotte Chamber President Bob Morgan, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, who fired his sons as team executives three years ago and has yet to publicly disclose a succession plan, could leave the City of Charlotte if he and the city don't come to a new lease agreement.Keep in mind that Los Angeles, who has made it clear that a new NFL team will be playing in the city in the next few years (most likely around 2016, 2017). With the NFL not giving the idea that they would add a new NFL team (a 33rd NFL team) to the league, which means that the City of Los Angeles would need to find a team willing to relocate to their city.With all of that, some in Charlotte are SCARED TO DEATH of the reality that the Panthers could indeed leave the city, which would be similar to what happen in 1995, as the Cleveland Browns moved from Cleveland to Baltimore. It's being said that during the Democratic National Convention, which was held in Charlotte back in September, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who served as the Convention Chairman, spoke with Jerry Richardson about the idea of the team leaving for Los Angeles.It's believed that Richardson is looking for a new stadium to be built for the team, as the current stadium Bank of America Stadium is about 20-years old (in 2016). Charlotte's Mayor Anthony Foxx successfully campaign for a $8 million city taxpayer funded stadium for the Charlotte Knights (a minor league baseball team) this year, and the hope that the city and the mayor will do the same for them.If the Panthers can't get a stadium, there's an idea of just moving fans to the upper levels of Bank of America Stadium and put in place high-definition scoreboards. Since 1996, a handful of NFL teams have either built new NFL stadiums or done major renovations to their existing stadiums.Along with the Panthers, the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars are among other teams who are thinking about relocating (mostly due to their desire for a new stadium).
