http://www.catscratchreader.com/2013/7/26/4559702/carolina-panthers-to-wear-the-all-black-look-five-times-in-2013

Recently on nfl.com the Carolina Panthers 2012 alternate black uniforms were voted the greatest uniform of all time Shocked . Now it seems they are planning to make this uniform part of the yearly rotation. The article states that they may replace the blue socks with black ones and the silver helmet to all black. I know many of us here have pined for this look for years, finally it seem to be a reality!!!

All the original said is that we are going to wear the black tops 5 times. That just means it's possible that the pants could be on in for up to 5 different occasions. Probably just once though if I had to guess.

We will wear the all black uniforms (with a black helmet) during the MNF game against the Pats. That would be my best bet

Purely speculation at this point. Wouldn't be surprised if it's our current logo, just on a black helmet.

Confused Poor Cam wont be able to see his own players very well during a night game if they wear all black. His view wont have as much contrast with the green field as the camera has. I'd rather see them wear the blue for a night game.

I would have to agree.. it's not about "looking good", it's about winning games

How bad will his vision actually be on a well lit field? It's not like they are playing under one light or something

Right the field is well lit, but you have to look at it from his angle. He doesn't have the contrast we see on TV or even in the stands of the black jersey's on the green grass. It can be pretty easy to lose track of somebody in black when the backdrop isn't a solid color.

I'm not saying it's impossible to be accurate, but all I'm saying is it certainly doesn't help like the blue jersey's would.

Let me get this straight: The panthers win the "Best uniform of all time" contest in a landslide victory, and the first impulse here is to change it? (all balck helmets, socks, etc)
