The Fayetteville Marksmen - I like it.

Agreed.

I saw a few people posting during the feed said they didn't like it - "horrible" even. Obviously, it's homage to the largest population military base in the world and possibly a reference to the marksmanship competition held there every year. Good call.

I would assume that the tan and olive drab in the background of the logo are the new colors

This is what it's all about:

Quote

"This is an opportunity of a lifetime. To not only own a professional hockey team, but to provide the people of Fayetteville a real community asset,” owner Chuck Norris noted. “And we wanted a name that paid homage to the history of this town, and Fort Bragg, which is home to many of the elite fighting soldiers in the world.”

The logo, which features a Carolina Red Fox with an “M” in his forehead above the blocked words “Marksmen” also carries significance to the team, and the community of Fayetteville.

“The fox identifies with the Marksmen, as it is indigenous to the area, but is also wild, cagy, and ferocious-characteristics showcased on the ice. And, much like the team, the fox exhibits a softer, cuddly side for kids, school events, and non-profit atmospheres,” team President Jeff Longo said. “With the community involvement, our mascot will be a role model for kids in Fayetteville, and help bring attention to fundraising initiatives and provide entertainment at every game.”

And here is the artwork:

In response to those on the feed who said their kids would hate to see Anthony go away, I can see kids warming up to the "cuddly" fox mascot easier than a fireant.

Or in the case of your avatar: "Don't shoot 'til we see the whites of your eyes ..."
