    The report I read said it was $2.2 billion .... in cash.

    Probably not "small, unmarked bills", but still .... cash.

    For perspective, the entire federal food safety and inspection budgets (total of a couple different departments) were less than $2.2 billion, last I checked.

    the WSJ reported that another group made a higher bid, but tepper's bid included more cash:

    No way that's true. Maybe they mean a a transfer of one cash account to another but there is no way there was 2.2B in physical money. That would be 48,510 lbs of money even if it was on 100 dollar bills. (a million dollars in 100s in 22.05lbs).

    you would need a lot of machinery to move that money.

    I read somewhere there might be something brewing to move the team to South Carolina.

    "cash" simply means "not financed". it's akin to the down payment on a mortgage. tepper offered more cash down than the higher bid.

    BOA stadium is only around 13 miles from SC. I'm not sure what area in SC could rival the Charlotte/Triad/Raleigh area for fan base/wealth.

    Actually, Tepper probably could write a check for $2.2B that would clear.

    Must be nice to be able to stroke a check for 2.2 billion. As previously mentioned they could build a facility 15 miles south in South Carolina

    I think this means he has to sell his minority ownership in the Steelers. After doing my due diligence on the coach and players on that team, I’ll give tepper a hundred grand for his minority share, but he also has to sign over his Bugatti Chiron to me!

    After all he sticking me with a lemon of an organization!

    Where? No place in SC similar to Charlotte. SC is all about Tigers and Gamecocks, not Panthers. Panthers did play their first year at Clemson - before their stadium was built. Cannot see a move to SC at all.

    Edit: Guess you are talking about a move over the state line, but still in Charlotte metro area. Still makes little sense - Charlotte downtown has come to life with their downtown stadium.
