Panthers’ billionaire owner David Tepper: ‘I’m not building the stadium alone’

·1 min read

Panthers owner David Tepper has a net worth of around $14.5 billion, according to the latest estimate by Forbes. That won’t stop him from asking for hundreds of millions in public funding when it comes time to build a new stadium for his franchise.

Tepper made that much clear today when speaking with reporters at an event announcing a $700,000 donation for a special needs park in Rock Hill. According to the Charlotte Observer, Tepper said he’s not going to build it alone and the “community” has to want to.

“Community” of course means “taxpayers,” who will no doubt fork over whatever it is Mr. Tepper asks for without much of a fight from their elected officials.

Just because Tepper will get what he wants doesn’t make his entitlement here any less outrageous.
