anyone who thinks it should be Charlotte Panthers or North Carolina Panthers are delusional.

-Look at other cities that named their team and are similar in size to Charlotte: Tampa, Jacksonville, Cincinnati; all of which are the bottom 3 in filling the seats...Can add San Diego to the list, but San Diego is much larger than Charlotte.

-South Carolina sends thousands of fans to every home game. There may be more North Carolina fans, but there is no doubt that the Panthers would be in another city if it weren't for SC... Greenville/Spartanburg comes to mind, because it is close to Charlotte and is expected to be one of the fastest growing cities in the country over the next 10 years.

Agreed ... except a point of clarification. "Greenville/Spartanburg" is not one city, it's two.

Charlotte Yankees since the town is full of them.

the Charlotte Panthers.

So an already small fanbase becomes even smaller?

Hows the Charlotte Bobcats working out for you?

You dont hear any of the Hurricanes fans in Raleigh saying" It should be the Raleigh Hurricanes"

And you dont want to either cus the "Raleigh" Hurricanes brought the Carolinas their one and only pro Championship.

I wouldn't rename the team, but I would redo the concept to actually mesh with the name better.
