The Oregon Ducks will never be a success and will never attract recruits because of their name.
I think the whole Stern in nola for the lakers game is an indication that an official announcement is coming. As far as testing the waters, I don't think Benson really cares what other people, much less random national twitterers think. I'm okay with it though, they'll be my team no matter what as long as they're in nola.
"I've been stung by a Hornet, but I've never seen a Pelican do anything lively at all, except dive hard into the water and MISS his target 95% of the time - or, take a dump on the Causeway.
Not basketball-like at all!"
Ya'll know thats funny. :hihi::crytear:
It'll grow on you...like a parasite...a pelican parasite :cool:
the way i feel is.. THANK YOU MR BENSON FOR BUYING THE TEAM! NAME IT WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT! I'M IN!
Iīm okay with the name eventhough I would prefer Brass! But, like some of you mentioned, names like Thunder, Wizards or Magic are not really better! The Logo and and the colours that were mentioned here looked pretty cool to me! I donīt love it but I can live with that!
Wow so I lose the Hornets who I know and love and become a ****ing Pelican fan?
The five stages of grief
Denial – This is just a rumor. No way they are considering this name. We may even stay the Hornets.
Anger – Waaahhh! If people didn’t consider us a joke before, then they surely will now.
Bargaining – We have to get a petition or something going. Maybe we can pool some money together and get this thing changed.
Depression – The Pelicans? Really, the Pelicans? This just blew my high.
Acceptance – You know what? I think I’d look pretty sexy in a red, navy blue, and gold fitted shirt. And I was excited when they made the Pelican stand out more on the Louisiana license plates.
I'm gonna say what some of you don't want to say....When the hornets came here I really didn't like the name or the colors that much. Nope....but it grew pretty fast on me because I was young just started watching basketball and loved my home team. BAM.
You know, for almost 60 years, the name "Pelicans" was professional sports in this city. There was no Saints, no NBA, no nothing other than the Pelicans. It is just sad that so many people are not taught that part of our history. Sure, it was just a minor league baseball team, but they were New Orleans. This name is a testament to those past times and I love it.
How many people here even know where Pelican Stadium was.
