CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Carolina Panthers open the 2018 season in five days, and fans still do not know what the team has planned for mid-field.
It has always been the NFL logo, but new owner David Tepper has hinted he wants to change that.
The Panthers have flirted with the idea of the change for weeks, prompting the Panthers logo challenge.
The idea means replacing the NFL shield at the 50-yard line with the Panthers logo.
Tuesday night, the organization asked fans for even more feedback to help decide what happens next.
The organization sent out a survey to select Panthers fans asking questions like "What do you think of the team's slogan -- 'Two States, One Team'?"
The survey also offers three options for the mid-field logo -- The NFL shield, the Panthers logo, or a new logo which will stand for "Two States, One Team."
"I like the traditional panther. It shows fear. That they're tough. That they're bad," a fan told Channel 9.
There is no word yet on how the team will use the responses, but the survey touched on the team's branding and also on how fans experience the game.

Another question asked fans with a ticket to an early game, "How would you like to watch other NFL games in the stadium?"
It also asked fans to rank possible slogans such as "One Carolina," "Belong," "Keep Pounding," or "Two States, One Team."
