Nothing New.

New owner trying to get best deal possible, right or wrong.

Ottawa attempting same type of leverage.

Because SSE just recently, last week, submitted to report to Broward county commissioners and this report is asking more than what was SSE asking originally last month.

A deadspin article reaching far up their ass and seeing what comes out? You should reject that website as worthy of your eyes.

I do think it's cute that they have hopped on board with the new obnoxious news format of:

# of things about BLANK

Large company tries to pay less money to government ... stop the presses?

This is very overblown because it is the Panthers and the dark cloud of "relocation" is always fun for people to bring it.

Most, if not all major sports franchises do this and try to get the best deal possibly with their counties.

free money is free money.

haha didn't see that! I agree on Ottawa as well, though I think their ownership is actually going bankrupt, Vinnie has got lots of $$$$.

There was also another add on CBS Sports. http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-...broward-county
Here is my take I hope this really isn't true.... Vinne is willing to spend the money now "like Loria of the marlins" and when the pieces don't work out and he starts losing money hes going to go back to spending the cap floor. I really hope we aren't being taken on a ride here.... This franchise has not had that many winning seasons and tickets being 7$ isn't worth people driving 20-25 miles to come watch a horrible product. People have to pay 20$ to park at the ARENA anyone know where at money goes to? The city, County or SSE? I know you can park at Sawgrass mills but the walk is a pain in the backside. My whole point of this comment is that The Panthers are a money loser because they put them self in that PLACE... 1 playoff appearance in the past decade... Broken promises to its SSH... Horrible customer relations and so on. I know 90% of you guys agree that as a fan we can only take some much before we stop showing up when these guys aren't competing or playing hard. I am a former SSH and I want to see some concrete changes before I ever spend that much money on Season Seats again. Honestly I know South Florida gets a bad wrap as fans for not showing up but when it comes to hockey and Baseball both of these franchises have tainted pasts. Other fans don't realize the consistency we have been lied to. If the County winds up giving the panthers that TAX credit i hope someone adds that they have to keep a competitive payroll. I Love this team and want them to succeed, we as fans have had to take to many walks of shame out of our own home while others just point and laugh.

The trick is to care about the team and not the businessmen that run it. I care even less about them then they do about me. Yes, it is possible.


That being said, I imagine relocation rumors will always follow this team until they are winners.

Cats could be skating around center ice hoisting the cup, TSN will still say, "Now that they won, should the Panthers relocate?"

Shouldn't a Stanley Cup winning team be in a more deserving area?

When the Panthers win a cup all of the national media will suddenly say that they predicted it for years and that they saw this coming .... and then the next week say our turnout for our victory parade was terrible and the team deserves better (Canadian) fans.

who cares about broward county? As diehard fans of this team it is more than in our best interest that the team "screw" over local gov to remain solvent.
