New England Patriots
These threads need to stop being posted. These are tinderbox issues. The panthers are imbedded in the Carolina's like it or not. Sure NC feels more ownership since the stadium resides in their state but that doesn't make it more their team. Any owner current or future would be a moron to alienate current SC (and outside charlotte) Nc fans by calling it the charlotte panthers. If charlotte could have supported this team alone than it would have been named accordingly. If SC could have gotten a team without charlotte than same deal. We need/needed one another to maximize market (yes people the NFL is about $$$$$). Let's all just be happy with what we have and our sports peers who enjoy the same team. We are in the freaking playoffs and we are going to hate on our own? Sheesh people.
