Sorry Marc for taking so long to respond. My family is from the Winston-Salem area, in fact part of the people who settled Wachovia in the 1700s. I love NC. I just think Charlotte is too full of themselves. They try to put a positive spin on everything and call their main business district UPtown. There are too many bible thumpers there. I never thought they had the great desire to be a first rate NFL town, and never remember them trying to land a team back when ST Louis, Baltimore, Houston, N.O. and others were trying to move. The did have a big tv market and population. I grew-up a Redskin fan and moved to Jacksonville just before the Panthers and Jaguars were formed. I felt the better fans were in Jacksonville but with less population and tv market size. During the race for teams, I thought Charlotte was a little condescending. I root for the Panthers more often than not, but I think Jacksonville was a bigger football town. Much better for golf too.
