Reactions To The New Carolina Panthers Logo

Around the web we have all sorts of people chiming in on the new logo. Heck, the Carolina Panthers even became the #1 trending topic on twitter because of it.

First off we have Shudown Corner's take. Full disclosure, this piece from Yahoo Sports is intended to be purely a comic piece, rather than anything serious. However, I must admit I chuckled at a few of MJD's opinions on the new Panthers logo, and logotype.

I think it would be a bad idea for you to attempt to shave a panther's eyebrows at home, but these are experts, and an eyebrow-less panther is a more terrifying panther.

I'll admit that in looking at the new logo the lack of eyebrows or the two small middle teeth didn't really resonate. I think I got caught up with the new outline and blue lip/jaw. Judging from the reception on twitter a lot of fans seem upset with the lack of the small middle teeth... not sure I really understand why.

I think most fans are in accordance that it was time for us to drop the Hulkamania/Baywatch font for the team name. Most seem to think that while not perfect, the new logo type is still miles ahead. MJD doesn't seem to think so.

The old logotype said, "We're the Carolina Panthers and we're here to play some football and PARTAAAAAAAY." And that party would be attended by Sinbad and Spuds McKenzie.
The new one ... ah, it's just corporate-y letters with a few random kitty scratches in it. Boooooo. No one who made that font is here to party.

I'm not sure if Sinbad and Spuds would attend a party with just wine and cheese, but it's duly noted.

What do you think of our new Panthers logo? I like it. Added some modern touches without losing the essence of the logo.

Finally, this GIF seems to be floating around. It seems like a good thing to freeze frame if you hate the 'squinting eye'.
