Well, let me ask you this... do you think $3M for a second line forward is excessive?

If the answer is 'NO', then you can't really complain about concession prices.

If the answer is 'YES', then you can't really complain about the Panthers not spending money on players.

The money to pay for players, training facilities, coaches, scouts, GM's, etc. comes from the fans & sponsors. You can't have cheap tickets, cheap concessions, no advertising AND a team with a strong GM (plus staff), an excellent scouting department and a team that spends to the cap.

With the Panthers you have a team with cheap tickets, moderately expensive concessions (to make up for the cheap tickets) and lots of advertising (to make up for the empty seats). Unless you want the team to spend less money, the aggregate of those figures cannot decrease.
