Although the Carolina Panthers are sinking less money into the product they’re putting on the field this season they’ll be asking fans to dole out more to watch them play.

On average the Panthers will raise ticket prices between $1 and $9 per seat, a team spokesman said Friday. About half the tickets in the stadium will increase between $1 and $3 each.

This is just like people who complain about things around here but don't vote....


If they continue to goto the games and pay their PSL's, they get what they deserve.....ownership does not care about the fans and if anyone thinks they do, their crazy.....

If you really look around the league, the Panther tickets are still a pretty good value (relatively speaking).


As for the money, people are having this knee jerk reaction to what they have done so far this year. But let's take a closer look:
  • Jake was cut, but he will still be paid his money. Matt was signed for 4 times what he made last year. Doesn't seem like a money saver to me.
  • Peppers was let walk. Well, 95% of Panthers fans agreed, he wasn't worth the money. Smart move.
  • Kemoeatu was let go. He's fat, and could barely move when healthy. I wonder just how good he would be after tearing his achilles and being inactive for almost a full year? Another good move.
  • Lewis was good, not great, and definitely not worth his contract figures.
  • Diggs let go. Even this Buckeye fan will admit it's time for Anderson and/or Conner to take over. Good timing.
  • And then Hoover. Fan favorite. One of the Panther greats. True. But his best days are way behind him. Anybody that knows football should have picked up on that last year. His body is breaking down. How many nagging injuries did he have last year? I have a feeling that a combination of Sutton and Feametta will quickly make you forget Hoover.
Have they gotten better? Don't know. Have they gotten worse? Most certainly not. So then why not get younger? Smart move.

The off season has just begun. Be patient.

What's next? Smith for a 1st round pick? hmmm......

Not a bad idea. He's aging. His best years are probably behind him, but he could help a Super Bowl Contender this year. Probably no football next year. Three years from now, he's an old man trying to hang on. Something to think about.

I just think if they stay "status quo" then we get more of the same. Personally, I'm a little bit energized by the youth movement that is going on.

Yes, you can argue Peppers wasn't worth the money, but him leaving is a huge loss for the pass rush. You just don't fill that spot easily....

Anyhoo, people will accept the raise in ticket prices and not speak out....
