Q: What do you do with an elephant that has three balls?

A: You walk the elephant and pitch to the rhino.


Shouldn't have ever moved to Fort Mill in the first place. They would have had bigger crowds, and probably would have landed a Major League Team because of the support. Bring 'em on, I'd love to go to some games, even during the week. Miss the ol' Crockett Park. Good Times

I don't need to be concerned with doing the Black Thug Shuffle after a game while going to my car. Keep them in Fort Mill. Minor League baseball belongs in a rural setting, not the "big city" that Charlotte pretends to be.

QC Know It All

As usual Sorensen is wrong. Its a sardine can downtown and he wants more? He said to tear down the mega nice 24k seat 1987 built Tyvola Rd Arena and build a terriby ugly small Time Warner 17k seat armory that cost 10 times more. He said to put the NASCAR HOF downtown. He hated the "Carolina" name for the Panthers.
The guy is an idiot and dosent believe half of what he says himself. go fig

Soon he will be wanting a new airport downtown, UNCC 49ers inside the belt, and all burbs there. Put everything inside the tiny circle. Such stupdity. He has never been right about anything for 20 yrs since the Star ran him off.

And it was Shinn he ran off who got pro sports with the Hornets and then bought the tiny 1A Os tean off Marsh playing in a Little League park and brought 3A just below Carowinds that is 5 minutes by I-485 and I-77.

Always do the opposite of what Sorensen says. He should have been a comedian.


I hate you suburban idiots. If you want things to do move to the city or shut up. No fun for you fort mill/ lizard lick


Yeah, VA, NOBODY has an urban ballpark...except Durham, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, Indianapolis, Memphis, Norfolk, Oklahoma City, Sacramento, Louisville, Chattanooga, Jacksonville, Toledo, AND Montgomery. It'll never work.

Its it odd to name a few things how the founding fathers of Charlotte had the vision to build the old Griffith pro basball stadium way down in Dilworth off Marsh 100 yrs ago?
What about the old Colisium way out 2 lane Independence in 1957?
New Colisium way off Tyvola in 1985?
UNCC way out off HW 49?
Douglas Airport way out off Wilkinson Blvd in 1947?
The list goes on. Obv they were more ahead of their times way back when.

Right back at you jackazz. We dont like dodging bullets or getting mugged. Are you that ignorant with that 4th grade level education? Cross the state line and you are in immediately in Char city limits.

Burb life is excel. No 3rd world. Crime is ziltch. Clean & safe. Family oriented. Great schools. Low taxes. No congestion. Legal firearms encouraged for protection.

Listen up knucklehead. You are not taking our 3A Knights to that Sec 8 3rd world downtown for fans to get mugged and robbed. Now go smoke your crack. They're staying. Deal with it.

You couldnt afford a shack must less an average home at 700k. Peasant.


@Tega cay knights

Totally off topic but why would you need a gun for protection if you say crime is zilch?

Btw, if the point of commenting is to share your viewpoint gross generalizations cloud the point you're trying to make, just saying.



Zero chance they stay in Fort Mill. Went to a game last week and there were maybe 200 people there. Moving downtown will bring many more fans and money which is really all that matters. Besides, everyone knows that in the US we have two 3rd world countries, South Carolina and Lousiana. Sucks.


WRONG TOM! If they want to build a stadium in the actual city limits, fine, the knock down the remnants of Eastland Mall and put it there. You have plenty of space for parking, plus space to put a few small office towers to create a business park on the opposite side of the lot to help revitalize that part of town. Besides, the city planners are already moving ahead with a street car that would eventually go down Central to that area, might as well put something there to go to!


They def hate f*gs in South Carolina and Louisiana.


No, absolutely not. We do not have the backing to support a team. Charlotte is not a baseball town. A total waste of money. I hope we never bring an MLB team here either.
