NBC to auction off 'Friday Night Lights' props. Would you rather have Panther gear or Lion gear?

Great news, Friday Night Lights fans: NBC is going to be auctioning off props from the show — things like coach’s sunglasses and Tim Riggins’ farm coat. But there’s one decision that’s sure to raise at least an internal debate while casting your bids: Would you rather own Panther or Lion gear?

Admittedly, I hated the idea of the Lions in season 4. Their colors were far inferior to the Panthers’ yellow and blue, and the spirit that characterized the show for me was lost. (Of course, like he often did with the players, coach Taylor brought me around to the idea of the Lions.) Now, I’m conflicted.

Part of me thinks I’d rather go with the Lions, because when I visit Texas, I wouldn’t want anyone to mistakenly think I support the real-life Panthers of Pflugerville High School (recognize that “P”?). But admittedly, even after learning how to be a Lion in the last two seasons, I admit that my loyalties still lie with the Panthers — even after their douchification in season 4. (I simply pretend that didn’t happen.)

What about you, readers?
