Panthers owner says he wants retractable-roof stadium in next decade

first_img A.J. Green injury update: Bengals receiver (ankle) remains in walking boot “At some point, I would make a big investment if I could get the state and others on board in a new stadium that would be great for soccer and great for football,” Tepper said, via Sports Business Journal. “The economy’s big enough for a revenue tax, a hotel revenue increase that would go a long way to help pay for a new stadium.”Tepper, founder and president of global hedge fund Appaloosa Management, L.P., purchased the team from Jerry Richardson for a reported $2.2 billion in May. Richardson decided to sell the team after he was accused of workplace misconduct in December 2017. It has also been reported in recent weeks that Charlotte is “very much in play” as MLS considers expansion, though an outdated stadium that opened in 1996 is unlikely to draw interest.On the other hand, the capital city of Raleigh has a little more to offer with the Hurricanes’ PNC Arena, which opened in 1999, and N.C. State’s Carter-Finley Stadium, which opened in 1966 and was renovated in 2006. Related News Saints’ Michael Thomas gets record 5-year, $100M extension, report says Could more construction be coming to the already fast-growing city of Charlotte, North Carolina?Panthers owner David Tepper has been open about the planned renovations to Bank of America Stadium, but would like to see a new retractable-dome stadium built if he could garner some taxpayer help. Dez Bryant says he has ‘no interest in playing football right now’ As Tepper settles in with the Panthers, he also has turned his attention to the future with the hope of hosting more sporting and entertainment events. Despite being the richest single owner in the NFL with an estimated net worth of $11.6 billion, he still needs help.“People here in Charlotte have to realize: This is a really major, growing, important city, and it needs that sort of presence,” Tepper said. “Charlotte, in my mind, for these two states, should be the sports and entertainment capital. That’s what it’s meant to be.”last_img read more

La Penitence Market vendor shot to head trying to ward off bandits from robbing…

first_imgLa Penitence Market vendor Doodnauth ‘Hardat’ Danrasi is battling for his life at the Georgetown Public Hospital, after being shot to his head on Easter Monday reportedly while trying to ward off four armed bandits from robbing his wife, Meena Danrasi, in the vicinity of Twin’s Drug Store on Saffon Street, Georgetown.Based on reports received, the now seriously injured man, a resident of Winsor Forest, West Coast Demerara, had a scuffle with at least four armed men who had relieved his wife of her apron containing over $100,000.The four armed men reportedly appeared at the market under the pretext of purchasing fruits and vegetables, but instead held the woman at gunpoint. Upon realizing what was happening, ‘Hardat’ reportedly went to his wife’s rescue, and one of the men discharged a round that hit him to the temple. Seizing the apron containing the money, the bandits then escaped on two motorcycles.An eyewitness told media operatives that the shooting incident occurred at about 17:30hrs, when there were not a lot of people at the market. She said ‘Hardat’ was advancing towards the armed men a knife in his hand when he was shot.“There were four of them, no mask… people say that one of the constable know one of them; and it look like since yesterday them de targeting… I de done pack up, and is when I hear the screaming and meh husband tell me to run….,” she detailed.She said Hardat intervened while the bandits were about to rob his wife, Meena Danrasi. “They told her (to take off her apron) and she decided not to give (it) up. Her husband had a knife, and (he) tried to defend her, and told them, ‘Lef de woman! Lef de woman!’ and they shot him.”She said she cut her apron from off her body with a knife and dashed the apron in a corner. She said the constables who rushed to the scene tried their best to deter the bandits, taking into consideration that none of them was armed. The unarmed Constables tried their best by screaming for help.“No one was around to help, so the man them just collect the apron with the money and run on them bikes and ride way”, the woman added.After the bandits had left the scene, the injured man was rushed to the hospital. His condition, according to reports, is listed as serious.last_img read more
