07:18 AM ET 05.14 | Keeping current isn't always easy, and Florida has an arena improvement it would like to make, though not out of its pocket. The Panthers go before the Broward County Commission on Tuesday as they try to get a much-needed scoreboard for the Sunrise arena. Michael Yormark says the Panthers can get a state-of-the-art board and a new master control center for $4.2 million. If the county agrees to pay for the scoreboard, it will be in place by this coming season. If they don't ... "We've put enough money into the building," Yormark said. ... "We're not in the position to buy one. If the scoreboard just collapses next year, which I'm sure it will, we just won't have a scoreboard."

Another team looking for a new home? These guys go north in the east and the Yotes in the west?

Exactly! Why punish the fans all game long by reminding them how badly you suck?

Somebody should've told them it's not a good idea to grill burgers and hot dogs for the concessions inside the scoreboard.

I take it that Yormark is not a P.R. man

I believe he's in their marketing or something like that. He's been around for years and they should have ****canned him years ago. He couldn't sell ice cubes to sinners in hell. He should be worried about putting butts in seats. Trying to get more public funds....for a friggin scoreboard?? Let Dale Tallon do his job and see what happens from there. Put a better product on the ice and you can buy your own dang scoreboard.

And FN....I know it's a lot to ask, you know -- with such a great finale to the Bruins/Leafs game last night...perhaps a RELEVANT story might be a good idea?

The Islanders tried this same argument about 10 years ago...

Didn't work of them either - and the Coliseum is alot older than the Panthers.

Next they will claim one of 2 things... Asbestos or Fire Code violations.
