Tailgating and ticket-scalping will not be allowed at the National Car Rental Center, the NHL Panthers' new arena (SUN-SENTINEL, 9/17). In Miami, Julie Kay reported that while tailgating violates Sunrise city codes, the "unofficial reason" for not allowing tailgating is because the team "want fans to buy food inside the arena" (MIAMI HERALD, 9/16)....In Charlotte, Tony Mecia reported the New Arena Committee, a citizen's committee evaluating a possible new Hornets arena, proposed a two-day November trip to visit new arenas in DC, Philadelphia and Cleveland -- using the Hornets' private plane. Mecia wrote that some City Council members say "they're troubled by the possible involvement of the Hornets in a citizen-driven process that could benefit the team financially." The cost of the trip is estimated at $17,000 to $20,000 (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 9/16).
