  1. Why are you on a sports thread if you don’t like sports and are only here to bash them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Haha, I’m loving this! Do y’all actually want to steal the Canes from Raleigh? It’s their only team. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Charlotte started growing up at a pretty unfortunate time. There were only a handful of big cities in the US a century ago. It was also easy to be well-known nationally if you had 100,000+ in population. Now, there are dozens upon dozens of cities in the US that meet that criteria. Unfortunately, a couple of them have KIND OF similar names to our city. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I THINK Charleston was a big city before Charlotte was, but they’re drastically different cities. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. What is Charlotte not doing to get to that point? I feel like the city is big enough and attracts enough national events to get its name out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Because only one state is paying for that team. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I feel like we still have plenty of room. Are we using that room up quickly? Yes, but taking a trip around I-485 I see lots of rural area. That’s not necessarily a bad thing and should probably stay that way. Taking a trip around I-285 in Atlanta proved to me that we’ve got a long way to go before we get even close to running out of developable land. I think it’s interesting that Raleigh has decided to invest more outside of its CBD as opposed to Charlotte. When I lived in Raleigh, it felt like everyone simply embraced that there were multiple relatively small city centers as opposed to one big city core. In my experience, that’s not something you see a lot of in a city Raleigh’s size. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I wonder how feasible it would be to simply have the MLS HQ and training facilities there as well as a soccer academy for the community. It might be more of an economic and community booster than we think. It provides a way for people to get involved and could end up being a great source of talent for the MLS team.

  9. But are both Carolinas paying for the team? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’d wager blue similar to the Panthers’ main color, but with hints of plum in order to represent Ally. I would think it would have to be similar in color to the Panthers since they will share the stadium. It would probably end up being similar to the Hornets’ old team colors if I had to guess.

  11. I’ve been trying to do some research. Does the MLS publicly announce the date they plan to...uhmmm...announce their new team? I haven’t seen any information about it for other cities once they were awarded the team. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Contrary to how many others feel, I hope the team is branded Charlotte FC because it not only promotes the city, but it also allows for a potential regional rivalry should Raleigh or another NC/SC city be awarded a team in the future. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s just that some people view the highway as an eyesore and a waste of money. Being that Charlotte is ranked one of the lowest cities for parks, it would be nice to be able to build an urban park in a location that provides scenic beauty over an otherwise busy highway. It’s also beneficial given the scarcity of land uptown. We could essentially build this park without sacrificing any additional lucrative land. It’s not so much about helping people get across the highway since they’ll likely use the new pedestrian bridge, but it will help to make a more seamless transition between Uptown and Southend which is necessary if it is to ever truly be an extension of the urban style of uptown.

  15. I think this may have been mentioned before, but does anyone know (or have a guess) whether the team will be branded as Charlotte or Carolina? I’m just curious everyone’s thoughts on it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
