Whatever southdownus. :huh:
You asked for our opinions and that is exactly what you got.
I am sorry you didn't find the overwhelming acceptance of your proposal that you thought you might, but that's life. We have been discussing, debating and arguing about whether a name change was in order and what possibilities existed since the relocation was announced. It's pretty much been debated to death, with the general consensus being that New Orleans Hornets is a fine name and about the only acceptable alternative would be to get the Jazz name back (but that is virtually impossible).
You have your obvious opinion about your proposed name, and we have ours. You asked for our opinion and we responded accordingly. If anyone liked the idea, they would have let you know. The only reason this thread is begining to degrade into trash talk is because you won't let the issue die - you seem to need the last word.
It's time for everyone to just walk from your change the name threads and move on to other matters. Besides, a name change is completely out of our hands. We do not own the team and the owners say they will remain the Hornets. Any application to change the team name must be filed 18 months in advance so the first season that the Hornets could play under any other name would be the 2004-05 season - and after 2 years of the New Orleans Hornets it will be even more difficult to implement a change.
