I like our name. Scary animals are always the best nicknames.

Think about it like this...would you want to be locked in a small room with a Panther or a Lion or a Bear? Or even a Giant or a Pirate for that matter?

Compare that with a Duck (Oregon) or a Rooster (SC). Not very scary at all. Most likely they would end up saving you a trip to the market to find something for dinner.

So no, we shouldn't be anywhere on this list.

Is it just me or does the tooth on the Sand Gnats logo make it look like he has a cigarette in his mouth?

Seeing as how I find it funny, yes. And not in a "fug Yahoo" way, but in an "lol they're right" way.

why "carolina panthers" instead of one of the other billion teams that's been using that name for much longer?

like the pitt panthers have been playing football since the 19th century.

e: yeah i know the list is limited to pro teams

Question. Does anyone know the history behind the name? We're there other names brought up before the panthers was official. Unfortunately, by sides of my family are from Dallas. As little kid, I obviously pulled for Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, and Jay Novacek. I converted during our inaugural season. I'm 25 now so you do the math. I don't remember the details.

It's dumb because all team nicknames are silly and for kids. What difference does it make if your team is called the Tigers, Lions, or Bears? None. Last time I checked Lions are from Africa, Tigers are from Asia, and Bears don't walk the mean streets of Chicago. Nicknames and mascots are for children and any blogger or blog reader that wastes their time ranking them is an idiot.

THat's why I liked the Hornets. History here. And the Bobcats name sucks I think. Panthers is good, never had a problem with it. I think it's the losing franchise attatched to the name that brings it down but after living around bobcat fans, it isn;t close.
