  Sports have become big business in Charlotte, but the financial aspects of at least two of our local teams have been the source of controversy.

Meanwhile the Charlotte Knights are set to build an uptown baseball stadium; also a move met with mixed reactions. We’'ll look at that latest coaching moves, the likely economic costs of these most recent proposals and more when Charlotte Talks.
