ThePonderer Posted July 31, 2010 Share Posted July 31, 2010 Up next:The Virginia Colonials.During the 2010-11 season, the Florida Panthers suffer the worst season in franchise history, both on and off the ice. Finishing with 57 points and missing the playoffs for a 10th season in a row, the Panthers become the only team in NHL history to do so. The Panthers fan base dwindles and the team loses a massive amount of money. The owners have a deal in place with the city of Norfolk, Virginia- which, when coupled with Hampton Roads, Virginia Beach, Newport News and several other municipaltities, creates a metropolitan area of nearly 2 million, and quickly growing- to move the team there upon completely of a new 17,000 seat arena for the 2013-14 season. The area has supported the AHL's Admirals for a decade and has shown it's anticipation for the Panthers franchise ever since the initial rumors of the team's relocation.For this one guys, I've only got home and away jerseys. I'm not a great logo designer, so if someone would like to take a shot at it, feel free.Okay??As much as I would love to see the Panthers relocate to Norfolk, I wouldn't want them looking like this. It reminds me too much of a college hockey uniform. I couldn't see them naming the team the Colonials for one. If they'd name them anything it would most likely be military influenced. The color combination is also very rough. Maroon, Black, and White? Yikes. Try Navy, Champagne, and maybe White. Even as far as a name like Destroyers (based off of the warship) would fit the team better than Colonials. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
