The Carolina Panthers have released a redesigned team logo for the 2012 season. The original Panthers logo was probably cool back in 1995, when they first joined the NFL as an expansion team, but in all honesty — it sucked. Carolina's new logo is a definite upgrade from the teams previous look, not to mention, probably the best move the Panthers made since drafting Cam Netwon. Don't believe us? Hit the thumbs for a comparison. [NESN]
