Here's a design I started this spring and never got around to finishing. SUPER rough, but I like the color scheme and font.
i still say "surge"!
Just read the 24/7 post, 42...good stuff. Getting pumped for this thing to start taking shape!!!
The more I think (or drink) about it, the more I like the idea of Spirits with an s....meaning we'd be a team named after getting drunk. And personally, I think it'd be f'n fantastic if instead of them serving national drink brands, we'd have arena stations that serve local drinks (i.e. purple drink from lafitte's bar or a monsoon from port of call). Tell me that's not a f'n fantastic idea. I might be a bit of a drunk, but so is most of the city. If we're gonna do it, lets do it right --- lets put drive thru daiquiris in the parking lot itself. Wooooooo!!!!!
I need to calm down.
10 days and no posts here.
The closer we get to a rebrand, the less people care.
Again, this was more of a proxy fight with ownership about commitment.
The brand is just fine, and no one caring enough to post, ask, speculate for 10 days when news came out recently and the last tip-off of the Hornets (potentially) is strong evidence.
makeshift poll at my house and New Orleans Nights edges out New Orleans Daze....could this be the start of something?
Point is, I still want one as much as day one. I suggest you don't judge interest off the traffic on a site.
We have had 4 huge threads already on the issue, plus countless others on the main board - its been talked to death and majority wanted/want a name change. Its just hard to keep talking when we are getting minimal information (which is fair enough)
Several pages when Spirits was the frontrunner, several pages about Cardinals when there was word that we wanted Cardinal red as a color, several pages on Pelicans when they were the frontrunner. We obviously want to discuss the rebrand, but we have nothing to say. We've said it all. If anything it seems like we are information starved rather than uninterested IMO.
seriously though, I think a couple of things enter the picture here.....1.) is that with the season about to begin, priorities are elsewhere right now and we are still the Hornets...2.) is that we are pretty much talked out and most have pretty much accepted that in the end, what will be will be....I don't think its a situation where caring is gone, but more one of acceptance that we will be "something" other than Hornets....and the final decision does not rest in our hands....
What a weird post by 42.
I think he has hinted if not said many of times that he would prefer them to stay the hornets.
I have said that my feeling has changed over the past 10 years from being slightly anti-rebrand to completely apathetic (but I still do the legwork to get info for all, like a moron) to just wanting the conversation to end.
All of you are agreeing with me: There's nothing to talk about. This is isn't some thing that has to be beaten to death. It's been beaten to death for 10 years. It was a proxy fight. Now that that fight is over (will the team stay), the interest has waned (we processed, we have no control . . . grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom the know the difference).
These comments are all spot on. Spot on.
The past 10 years has been a little more up-tempo than it needed to be about the rebrand. Again, it was just a proxy fight. People wanted a sign and security.
The friggen logo means nothing.
If Ellison bought the team and the same info came out, people would be talking more. Again, proxy fight.
I think you're taking this a bit personally? How are you a moron for getting info about a story that we (clearly) want info on?
This is the fourth thread and it's 20 pages, Ozzy. I agree that ultimately a logo doesn't mean much in the grand scheme, the real pieces are in place (ownership, young players with talent) and after that it's all lagniappe.
