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.
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.
