I know there are a lot of great fans in South Carolina that may feel a little butt-hurt asking this...

but why do the Panthers (and Hurricanes for that matter) use Carolina instead of North Carolina? What about the "Charlotte Panthers"? Is it because it is just rolls off the tongue easier? Do they just want a larger fan base?

No.


Carolina Panthers is perfect.

Greensboro, NC


And yes I think initially it was to draw a bigger fan base and try to convert the Skins fans in NC and the Falcon fans in SC.

More inclusive to sell sponsorships.

But yeah, Charlotte is all that matters in the region so you can go ahead and forget about the rest of the two states. ;)

Shouldn't it be the Boston Patriots? Or the Massachusetts Patriots?

As much as South Carolina sucks I think we should try be as inclusive as possible. Many in SC have adopted the Carolina Panthers as their team.

But I do have to say that if it weren't for the gambling boats in Little River and the VD riddled divorcees that will fug anyone willing and able in Myrtle Beach I would never have any reason to ever step into that cesspool.

If you go to Myrtle Beach you must be a white trash Yankee.

White trash maybe. Ain't no Yankee though boy *spits tobacco*

BTW, people besides white trash Yankees go to Myrtle. Mostly ugly, desperate, middle aged men who are desperate for any type of female interaction or contact and go to clubs like 2001 in hopes pf bagging a 40+ year old divorcee. Then when that doesn't work out they go to the Crazy Horse, or Masters, or Darrieres and piss away a weeks salary on a butt ugly stripper that "REALLY LIKES ME BRO".
