This has nothing to do with the sunbelt teams or their marketability and viability. It does, however, have everything to do with the way their ownership have access to revenue generated from outside sources (Arena events) that has enabled them to operate at their ~$7M loss for so long. Keeping the Panthers in Florida legitimizes the arena as a key destination for many events and without the Panthers that venue would cease to be an attractive option.

Now consider that Katz is planning to keep the Oilers viable using the same system and we come full circle back to my original post. Some people are so far off base from my original point that it's almost embarrassing.

It really doesn't surprise me that much, though. I think this is the same band of rabblers that refuse to fully understand the Katz Arena proposal and instead pick and choose what to believe.
The bolded is laughable. Its so funny its beyond description. It doesnt even make sense.
