However.....I like the Pelicans name more than the rest I've heard and I did like the logo/uniform the guy made. My biggest issue is I don't see the importance of a name change but hey I didn't chip in on that 300 mill Benson spent either
Surprisingly the Pelican design that I think looks like a baby's nursery decor won an ESPN poll a few months back.
For a logo that men would be wearing, I'd prefer the bird to look more like this.... similar to that LSU pelican logo.
So why are we not going with Brass? Just cuz some guy out there still owns the naming rights from the old hockey team? Is this about money?!? It's a no brainer as a name along with the jersey mods BigDub did. Would it be possible to start a movement for the fans to have a say in the team naming? I almost made a ton of those yellow Brass shirts last year to sell them for dirt cheap at the arena but we decided it wasn't wise with the Hornets legal lurking. (can't use hornets themes or fonts)
If we become the Pelicans my buddies are gonna send me memes with our mascot covered in crude every time we lose. Come on man we gotta have a say in this.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and mine has stayed the same since the beginning. Id rather keep Hornets than get some crazy nickname for the sake of just having it changed. I've had season tickets since 2006. I've earned my opinion and I don't need a name/Shinn cleanse to support the team. Yes if they can find a nice New Orleans name I would love it, but it's not a deal breaker for me.
The color scheme and unis could save the name "Pelicans". I understand Tom wants something of meaning for the name and "Pelicans" fits that. It will just take some getting used to that's all. I just hope the logo, color scheme and unis are on point.
$5 says they'll be black and gold... everything else about the new organization is Saint-ish.
Everyone complained about Angles/Cardinals, which I understood b/c they really didn't connect with the city. Now, we hear a really NOLA/Southern Louisiana and people still complain? Disappointing...I hope the folks w/ the team don't read this board anymore.
If they read the forum, know that no team name will have 100% approval. It's not possible. I think Krewe of New Orleans is awesome. But people on Tiger Droppings lambast the name to high heaven. To each their own...
But make no mistake, Hornets has to go. Vaya con Dios, Avispón.
I've never been as big of a Voodoo fan as I am now. I refuse to call this team the Pelicans. At this point we might as well just name them the New Orleans, Louisiana.
Seems people are taking this to be absolute confirmation. It's still just rumor.
Speaking of rumor or a coincidence is the silence of Dub of late.
I wonder how long it took Washington fans to stop saying Bullets. They eventually got over it I assume.
Well after a few years you really have no other choice but to "get over it"
If BigDub's involved at all, then at the very least the logo and jerseys will be top quality.
