Gezzz, sounds like a huge mess over at the Independence…

It's really a shame. I would have loved to go to games at Memorial this season but I decided not to attend as long as DiMarco is the owner. I've also heard a few more things about front office higher-ups from friends in Jack's Militia. At this point I'd be surprised if the team exists in its current state in two years.

As a former season ticket holder with JM, this..  What was reported is what can be proved because someone saved the receipts.  The rest was heard at games, team events etc and would be reported hearsay.

Looks like it's official now pending league approval.  If he passes physical could start this Sunday.  I mean, he cant be worse than Darnold.  He will at least boost ticket sales (initially).  Hopefully we signed him cheap...we'll see how this pans out.   A healthy Cam and "healthy" CMC on the field again could be intriguing.   

Blue font: Sources say he went to his old condo above Chima and asked Lamelo Ball if he could rent out a spare room.

The Panthers were boring (which is unforgivable in the entertainment business). Cam is not boring.  And they'd probably have 2-3 more wins if he'd been the starter all year.

Anyone have the Pro’s & Con’s of the ACC relocating to Charlotte or Raleigh?  Seems like folks are saying the Raleigh-Durham Region would be a better fit for a Relocated ACC if they choose to leave Greensboro

13 league members will be very unhappy about the league offices moving to a town where the 14th member is located.

Since a hub airport is listed as a requirement for a new headquarters city, I don't think Raleigh has a shot. Plus, having 3 teams in and around Raleigh likely hurts more than it helps. If it doesn't come to Charlotte I'll be shocked.

We have a legit chance to have the largest MLS crowd ever, the goal is more than 73,019.

Why is that?  Do LA Galaxy Fans roll deep like Georgia Bulldogs Football fans?  Anyway - I plan to have two tickets up in the Nosebleed section come March 5th…..  Doing my part….

Because the capacity of the other stadiums are lower.  The two biggest teams from an attendance standpoint are Atlanta United, which currently hold all ten of the top attendance records at a capacity of 73,019 and the Seattle Sounders at 68k.  BOA has a capacity of >74k so if they convince enough people that this is a chance to be a part of history and not just a soccer game on a cold night in March, they can break the record.  The tickets are priced reasonably enough so we shall see.

I hope we break the record.  Just bought two tickets….

I'll set the over/under on attendance at the ACC Championship game on Saturday night at 24,000 (butts in seats, not ticket sales). Who's taking the under?

Cheapest tickets at BofA are still $46 plus tax & fees.  They Don’t want anyone to attend Pitt vs Wake Forest….smh
