The Odoriferous North/South Carolina Panthers

Which is it? North or South? Or is "it" just "Carolina"?

This is the franchise that counts among its alumni Rae Carruth who is in prison today for attempting to hire a hit man to murder his pregnant girlfriend. Today's Carolina Panthers are paying the execrable Greg Hardy about $777,000 to not play this weekend because the 25-year-old is accused of doing the following to a woman named Nicole Holder, according to court testimony before a North Carolina judge, who said, "Guilty," even if Hardy has another trial before a jury in the offing ...
"Hardy, Nicole Holder said, flung her from the bed, threw her into a bathtub, then tossed her on a futon covered with AK-47 rifles. Holder said Hardy ripped a necklace he had given her off her neck, threw it into a toilet and slammed the lid on her arm when she tried to fish it out. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Hardy dragged her by the hair room to room, she said, before putting his hands around her throat. 
“He looked me in my eyes and he told me he was going to kill me,” said Holder, 24, who said she used to live with Hardy.  Later, as Holder said she was held by her former boyfriend’s personal assistant, she said Hardy made the 911 call, showed her the phone, and said, "Run, little girl. You’re going to jail.'"
