A good bit of comments here are far beyond tongue and cheek and enter into the sort of ignorance reserved for the tinder box. As for the poll I highly doubt it is representative of anything worthy of analysis, let alone the monicker "faux pas."
You do realize that the only reason that the thread was created is that poll results indicate that South Carolina (unlike North Carolina) sides with the entire rest of the nation in picking the Seahawks to win? Many North Carolinians think that this faux pas on the part of South Carolinians deserves a little tongue-in-cheek criticism.
As someone posted a few posts above mine, the poll has already swung back to SC supporting the Panthers. Did they wake up overnight? No. Selecting a media driven, sensationalist, and relatively obscure poll to open the door to pick at SC seems contrite. This isn't the offseason, we have have better things to talk about than bashing a state who has the second largest panthers following in the world. Lets reserve our energy for ribbing Seattle right now!
