I drove down there two weeks ago to find the location and sense the scale of the project. From 77 southbound at Eden Terrace one goes at least a mile with dense trees on the Rock Hill side of the highway. Circling back there are businesses facing Mt. Gallant Road and then trees and green for quite some distance to 77. This is a virgin land project apparently. It may have been cleared or logged in the long before our time. For a single project for such a large property it may be unrivalled in York County

It's pretty incredible how much empty land there is in rock Hill, especially right around there on both sides of 77. Rock Hill could become 10 times bigger and still not use it all up.

I like the rendering - Seems like Tepper getting the best of both worlds in NC & SC.  Damn good businessman!  I only hope the MLS HQ in Eastland attracts 2Billion in investment.

I can't say I'm a lover of Jerry Richardson - definitely not a perfect guy and I can't say I agreed with all of his moves during his ownership period.  Also, I think his statue design is a bit clunky.  That being said, this whole statue removal initiative going on around the country has gone too far.  Panthers are removing his statue for public safety purposes due to apparent threats to tear it down.  Why would someone tear down his statue?  He may have made some off-color comments here or there, but certainly not something that would warrant his statue being toppled by a mob.  He deserves to be honored for having brought the Panthers here - I disagree with the statue's removal and the mob mentality to tear down anything you don't 100% agree with.

Doesn't that date back to the "Me too" movement? There were some compelling allegations against him for that. I don't recall how all of that panned out.

Tepper was very unhappy to be required to keep the statue of a PREVIOUS owner for his 2.2 billion dollar purchase. So would you. The "out" was if it became a public safety issue. So that is the path Tepper is taking. This is the understanding I have from several local experts posting on twitter today about this. The chance of it returning? Zero.

Very crafty/disingenuous of Tepper, then, if he is opportunistically painting this as a public safety issue if, in fact, there has been no actual threat made against the statue.  I like Tepper overall, but I also think he should respect the history of the franchise (even if he did pay $2.2 B).

You should go check out carolinahuddle.com if you think there hasn’t been any threats to the statue.

So you support a serial sexual harasser and racist?  Well OK then.  The NFL found enough evidence that it forced him to sell.   Do your homework before you post this dribble.

Tired of all this QB speculation going on....trading up....trading CMC...Watson this, for Watson that...Justin Fields...on & on.

Plain & simple...should have never won that Week 16 game against the Redskins.  Boneheaded win.  Season was over by then and we for sure weren't going to be beating the Saints on the last game of the season.  Loss to the redskins would have guaranteed us a top 4 pick in the draft, maybe even better depending on how the chips fell.  We''ll see how this unfolds.  Just hope I don't have to giveaway my new CMAC jersey to goodwill lol jk.
