    To be reasonably accurate here...

    Way back when the Carolina Panthers was established... they knew their stadium in Charlotte, NC wasn't going to be ready... so they played their first year in Clemson University's stadium, in South Carolina.

    Also... the whole reason they were "Carolina" and not "North Carolina" or "Charlotte" Panthers was to fully engage both NC and SC fanbase... from go, the idea was to try and capture both states as their regional fanbase...

    So... the problem here isn't a shirt with the outline of SC... heck, I think the Panthers should actually sell NC and SC shirts for the Panthers to capitalize on that large fanbase...

    The problem is whomever thought SC was NC and put the outline of SC with the letters "NC" on the shirt.

    Another example of how people not correcting others leads to expensive cleanup/problems later... these kinds of mistakes really should never happen... so the fact that they do, is more than embarrassing.

    I would not mind wearing one. If I was corrected I can point out I could not be wrong. Just look at my tea shirt.:)
