  1. nice view of the field more photos here: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/article246049455.html
  2. Panthers at Chargers looked nice on TV today. i've not been a fan of Panthers in black pants but with the blue jersey and white socks it was a good combo at SoFi.
  3. musings from the LV @ CAR game: Raiders helmet would look so much better w black facemasks. Panthers pants stripe is now more tapered at knee like originals vs last years that didn't come to a point before end of pant leg. Panthers new end zone logo is much smaller compared to last years.
  4. New look end zone paint for Panthers this week.
  5. yes, made no sense to me and long time fans of the team, and has not endeared the new coach. some speculated it was a nod to his previous Baylor comfort zone... who knows
  6. this was a bit of fan stir last week. Panthers QBs always have worn red practice jerseys. this season new coach Rhule prefers to have ineligible (injured) players of any position wear red. QBs will sport green jerseys to stand out from the black, white, and blues during practice. many Cam fans were upset that some of the red injured jerseys being worn one on day had (Cam's) #1 on them, and thought it was a organizational "dig" at Cam. https://www.panthers.com/news/2020-training-camp-observations-long-physical-practice
  7. last year's return of "silver" pants were a terrible dull gray. i still prefer the original thigh stripes too. the original tapered down to a point, the 2019 version bleed off below the knee cuffs. sparkly silver to match the helmets, why change what worked? Panthers black over silver combo looks so sharp on TV.
  8. don't forget pre-banking industry, we actually were the 1st US currency mint branch here in Charlotte. https://www.greatamericancoincompany.com/a/info/blog/the-history-of-charlotte-mint#:~:text=The Charlotte Mint Opens,minting US gold dollar coins. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlotte_Mint
  9. Not a fan of the new branding. Maybe it will grow on me after it’s more used. I am a Charlotte native and yes we prefer CLT to CHA. The new wordmark logos look wavy and not aligned to each letter slant. The reverse pickaxe in the lettering and number is a good concept that would work better with a different letter form.
  10. I think it’s more to do with the social media team just had a large turnover and they are replacing the look of their posts. We had the logo change in 2012, and uniform refresh last year (Nike template), so I wouldn’t read too much into the web site or media posts reflecting major uniform changes.
  11. our Orioles farm team went Charlotte O's for many years. i wasn't a fan of. give me the classic swinging bird (or crowned!) logo everyday.
  12. how would that new logo work on other side of helmet (mirrored)?
  13. i see that both UT and TB are using PMS 151 orange.
  14. yea, i tuned in and thought "wow, great colors tonight" color v color doesn't have to be a bad thing. the light parquet floor made for good TV color too.
  15. disagree. i hate the black pants. i do like the larger pant leg stripe now so on TV it breaks up the all black. this years "silver" pants are more dull gray and don't match up nice with the bright silver helmets. keep the white pants since they mate with all jerseys (not a fan of blk jersey/white pant, looks like copying Saints look), and hopefully next year have a brighter silver pants to go with black or blue jersey. would have to see other white on silver combos (Raiders have a few times i think), maybe again the larger blue leg stripe helps. i still prefer the classic sets of: black on silver, white on white, blue on silver. that's our identity. all blue and all black color rush, just minor league imo.
  16. nope, it's Lincoln Financial Field (PHI Eagles). altho in fairness to OP, Panthers field and end zone paint was a mess since we just hosted ACC Championship game and you could easily see "Clemson" in the "Panthers" lettering in the one end zone. youtube.com/dolPhb5JPgw?t=73
  17. LAC royal blues seem odd w matching pants (and socks). Is this their normal color rush? Not what I think of when I think Chargers.
  18. a few thoughts on the new team names: prob going to be "Charlotte" instead of "Carolina". i still think Raleigh/Durham will get pro soccer sooner than later. Carolina works for NFL since it's a larger fanbase footprint, and Charlotte sits on the NC/SC border. We do get tons of fans coming in from SC. as much as i hate "FC" for football club, Charlotte SC wouldn't be favored by city leaders who already have an identity issue of Charlotte not being better recognized. adding SC may confuse people into thinking we're in South Carolina, not North Carolina. i also think "United" may get shot down since Atlanta uses it, and we're trying to outgrow the shadow of big brother to the south. the old independence/kings area has been known as Charlottetown, but doubtful we go back to that.
  19. https://abcnews.go.com/Lifestyle/internet-freaking-finding-designer-90s-jazz-cup/story?id=32006647 circa 2015
  20. Tonight’s GB @ SF game looks like an NFL game. Good color combos, classic styles.
  21. I hope it’s better than the Nets grays. Tonight’s game looked like a Turnervision of classic black&white programming. https://www.nba.com/hornets/video/graham-highlights-112019 via @hornets
  22. white jersey and silver pants were only worn once in 25 years. At IND Colts. white with white is the norm. they usually withhold pants color til gameday. i've not been a fan of the (old) black pants, but the newer Nike template has a larger blue leg stripe so it's less offensive (to me)... but still not a fan of the black pants.
