Panthers withdraw agreement between city and county on abandoned facility
COLOMBIA — The real estate company of Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper wants to revoke a bankruptcy settlement it negotiated with the city and county where its abandoned South Carolina training facility was to be built.
GT Real Estate Holdings says Rock Hill and York County are making exorbitant and unreasonable demands. Tepper’s company offered $21 million to York County. He suggested donating the proceeds from the sale of part of his site to Rock Hill so that the city would receive at least $20 million. York County claims to be entitled to more than $80 million.
Rock Hill wants the bankruptcy case to be heard in South Carolina instead of Delaware, where GT Real Estate Holdings is incorporated.
Minor Leaguers form union, 17 days after unionization began
NEW YORK — The Major League Baseball Players Association has become the bargaining agent for more than 5,500 minor leaguers, completing a lightning-fast organizing campaign launched just 17 days earlier.
The minor leaguers are expected to negotiate an initial collective bargaining agreement during the offseason. The Independent Sports Arbitrator has advised Major League Baseball and the union that a majority of the 5,567 players in the minor league bargaining unit have signed union permission cards since the campaign began on Aug. 28. . He did not provide a specific number to the parties.
NBA plans to suspend Sarver for more than a year
NEW YORK – NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver was likely spared by the NBA for his racist, misogynistic and hostile comments and actions due to a key finding by investigators .
The law firm, which spent nearly a year digging into the situation, determined that Sarver’s use of slurs “was not motivated by racial animosity.”
Sarver was suspended for a year and fined $10 million after an investigation found he engaged in what the league called “workplace misconduct and organizational shortcomings.”
NASCAR’s 2023 Cup schedule remains largely unchanged
CHARLOTTE, NC — The 2023 NASCAR schedule includes previously announced races on Chicago’s new downtown street course and a return to North Wilkesboro in North Carolina.
The schedule is largely unchanged from the 2022 version. The 10 playoff runs are the same, the Clash exhibit will return to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the Daytona 500 will open the season Feb. 19.
The only notable date change is a second stop at Richmond Raceway. This has been moved from August to July while the NASCAR and IndyCar split weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway runs from July to August.
