PANTHERS TRIVIA

--
The Panthers endeavored to spread their presence around the Detroit metropolitan area through their operations as well as their marketing efforts.
--
The team was considered to be Detroit-based, but played at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan.
--
The club's executive offices meanwhile were in Rochester, Michigan, at 575 Woodward Street. 
--
Vince Lombardi, Jr. was brought on as the Panthers President and General Manager for the team's 1984 season.  Lombardi, of course, is the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Vince Lombardi, who guided the NFL's Green Bay Packers to five league championships during the 1960's.
--
Lombardi earned a law degree, then went on to win a seat in the state legislature - in Minnesota of all places, where he father earned many a victory over one of the Packers chief rivals, the Minnesota Vikings.
--
Today Lombardi spends his time as the chief protector of his father's well deserved legacy, and is active on the public speaking circuit.
