Panthers uniforms won't change in 2012

Panther uniforms won't change in 2012

Now that the Panthers' new logo has been revealed (see picture below if you've somehow missed that news), what about the team's uniforms?

If you’re a traditionalist, you’ll be happy with the answer to that question. If you’re wanting something wild and different from a team that hasn’t really altered its uniforms since it began play in 1995, you won’t.

“I don’t anticipate any changes at all in the uniforms,” Charlie Dayton, the Panthers’ team spokesman, told me Tuesday.

The logo will be incorporated into the helmets and jerseys, of course. But that’s about all.

I asked Dayton a few other questions about the logo, most of which came directly from some interesting fan comments on this blog. The questions were things like:

1) Will the Panthers' new logo be placed at midfield, where the NFL shield has always been? (The Panther logo is on the field, but not at the 50).

2) What will the end zones look like? (I would expect the new typeface to be incorporated).

3) When will the huge Panther logos atop Bank of America Stadium be switched out?

Dayton said he did not have the answers to those questions yet, that they were all to be determined. Remember, the team didn't expect to be releasing the logo at all this week until a post on Nike's Football Facebook page forced their hand, so stay tuned on all of that. There are a lot of meetings coming at Bank of America Stadium before all those decisions get made.

Notice how he says no changes are "anticipated"... sounds like he's leaving the door open.

I hope so man. I'm going to be pissed if the Panthers march out with the same uniforms on but just a different logo then decide to change their uniforms a year later.

We're gonna have new uniforms, he didn't say absolutely not or anything and the fact the new logo got "leaked' means they're just trying to cover the a$$es now

New uniforms will be coming this year... pretty exciting honestly

Would make absolutely no sense to update the uniforms to match the logo. So therefore I do anticipate some changes.

It doesn't make much sense to change the logo and not the jersey's too. So I see a few minor tweaks being made to the jersey. Nothing major though, something similar to the logo change.

Smokescreen. This basically confirms all black unis.

Considering Nike is now doing the uniforms, no way they keep the same style that Reebok used. There will be some alterations. It might not be radically different but there will some noticeable changes.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
