I choose to remain patient. One small speculative yahoo article (although they are usually on point) is not full confirmation.
Has anyone else seen this confirmed? how do we know Yahoo didn't just rip off 247?
Until it is confirmed I will restrain from drowning myself in my toilet.
And Pelicans? It sounds so ridiculous. I, at least expected something better like Voodoo, although I wasn't excited neither. It's never going to be the same.
NOW I just hope Charlotte gets back the "Hornets" name and logo.
I don't like it at all. I will of course be completely behind the team, but until I see the logo, etc., I'll be sick about it.....
John Reid talked to Stern who apparently will be in NOLA for the Lakers game which is very coincidental leading me personally to believe the league or the Hornets leaked it to yahoo for test reactions possibly locally and nationally
Honestly I hate the name!
But I love the team so its just a name......no body will care when we win a championship.
No wonder Gordon doesn't want to be here LOL :rolleyes:
Seriously, some of yall will hate on anything and everything. Pelicans is no worse then the following.....
People still play for those teams... people still buy merchandise for those teams. You'll get used to it, accept it, and embrace it.
I dont think this is a test run at all. I see the angle. They went with a state wide name instead of a city one. $$$ in the long run drove this decision and probably was forced by the NBA itself. :(
Oh well, the Benson's just screwed themselves out of paraphernalia sales of any kind worth mentioning. I will attend games but won't buy any team merchandise.
However IMO Pelicans is worse than every last one of those names. It may not hurt us in free agency but it may in merchandising. I'm having a hard time seeing myself in "Pelicans" gear and I owe a ton of Hornets gear.
Gotta love people saying they'll never buy gear or jerseys, when we haven't even seen them yet. Just cuz of the name on it.
I love the Pelicans and their Neck Bags. LOL
