Charlotte fan checking in here... We were discussing the rebrand On our board as the owner of our site registered a Hornetsplanet.com domain just in case the name is returned and I started doing some domain name research about the names that New Orleans has been rumored to be in consideration.
Nothing stood out until I looked up NewOrleansKnights.com
What do you guys think about this? Coincidence or something else?
Tom Benson agreed to buy the team on April 12th, on April 15th the domain name NewOrleansKnights.com was registered by a company named "Domains by Proxy", this is a company that registers domains confidentially for their clients.
Gayle Benson announces the new colors for the team as Red, Gold, and Navy (she said she wanted Black but, the NBA said there were too many Black uniforms). I then ran across this submission in the ESPN contest for rebranding the team.
(I'm on an IPad and can't upload the image, can someone upload it to make it easier to view)
Replace the Black with Navy and you get Mrs. Benson's colors... Maybe just a weird coincidence and I love a good conspiracy:)
