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

After all your bitching about threads this is what you came up with?


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.

I don't think the team actually uses the Panther enough in its packaging. Sure it's the logo, but that's about the end of it. The Vikings have their whole thing, and the Eagles and Bucs are also good at working in the stuff their team is named after. Even the Falcons pay tribute to their mascot by flying high above the radar and diving at the last minute.

Panthers are awesome animals and they should work that in more to how the team is presented.

Could be because there aren't actually any panthers in the Carolinas.



We do have panthers in NC.

i'm pretty jealous of the bucs badass pirate ship that shoots off awesome cannon explosions after touchdowns. i bet if we chained up some real panthers behind the visitor's bench and let a couple tapirs run wild on the field at halftime the league would think our name is a little more visceral. or maybe a giant robotic panther that lurches onto the field and a mechanized jaw opens up and paid employees dressed like the visiting team's mascots run and fall into the mouth and get consumed and the panthers roar gets played on loop as the panther gazes mechanically skyward as if to majestically declare this territory his and his alone

i'd get PSLs for that

Hahaah! Now that's an imagination! Reminds me of the direct TV commercial where the biker chick shoots the flaming arrows and they explode into a growling firey panther head. And your idea is even better than that! Lol!

no you don't. there are 3 cats (jaguar, leopard, cougar) that can be classified as panthers, and none are native to NC. there used to be cougars throughout North America but they're now extinct in all but the west coast and southern tip of Florida.

Sorry, Los Angeles takes the cake for stupid names.
Lakers and Dodgers, neither which has anything to do with LA.
