Stuff Like this is going to kill the ticket sales. I quess I cant blame people hearing stuff like this makes you lose faith. How can he say he wants the All Star game in OKC do you know how lame that would be. New Orleans will be a great site for the all star and when New Orleans rebounds I can guarantee you that more NBA star would rather come to New Orleans than OKC. OKC .. all star game is that an oximoron ha ha.

Anyone want to bet the Hornets start some kind of stupid damage control in fear of the oncoming shytstorm?
True 'nuff HH.
While this may seem bad (and it is bad), it doesn't change the fact that despite Shinn's stupid, wishful thinking, he's bound by a lease and compelled by the league to return to NOLA. The Hornets will return in 2007.
The only thing that has changed is that we've seen that Shinn's word is about as good as a 3 dollar bill. He's Benson all over again.
Best way to show Shinn up is to show up in force for the NOLA games. Support the team, not the owner - I learned that the hard way with the Saints.
As New Orleans sports fans that is our mantra.Originally Posted by say-what

You'll get over it CO, I've been doing it for years with the Saints and I don't feel dirty.
I guess the difference is that Shinn always came off as a better person. He might not be a basketball genius, but he did seem like a good decent person. We knew his problems in CLT were real but I assumed he wasn't total trash. Oh well.
hey HH when you take your hog off your sig and replace it with shinns face must be pretty bad.
Remember how Benson responded to Tags when he was told he wouldn't get his way? He did everyting in his power to rile up the people and press in SA to rally to keep the Saints. Same EXACT thing *seems* to be going on now. Lets not forget the ticket scandals Benson and the Saints had for the Louisiana games. Sound familiar. Didn't the Hornets just get a phone number up 2 days ago for a game thats 2 weeks away?Originally Posted by say-what
I wonder why our site has had so many new visitors since this past weekend. Everybody wave to our visitors. We're watching you too!
oh yeh almost forgot
Gosh ol mighty, I had so much fun going through this with the Saints. It's gonna be even better with the Hornets. I can't wait!!!
Thanks for removing my quote from your sig, CO. I really felt that Shinn was a man of faith. I can be pretty naive sometimes.Originally Posted by COCajun
I'm thoroughly dissapointed.
Support the team. I'm trying my best to hang in there. Let's hope this galvanizes the fans. I guess I'm still naive but at least I'm hopeful.
Everybody don't forget to wave to the Hornets execs in your posts!!!
: wavey : (w/o the spaces)
He was laughing at Benson. He was enjoying every minute of it. Know why? It took the spotlight off of him. Now he's managed to screw that up all by himself. Rather than worry about whats being said here, he should worry about silencing himself first.Originally Posted by NYKF Hornet
Now I know why Shinn is wearing those dumb boots. He steps in his own shyt so often...
march 8th i want to see a pre game party outside the arena, the team introduced as your new orleans hornets, yellow uniforms with new orleans on the front, and a pre game speech from shinn with his comittment to return.
no more no less.
GO NEW ORLEANS HORNETS
for the good Christian, man of faith comment. This guy is far from it, and would be a Muslim if his team was in Saudi Arabia (just as long as he could sell tickets). That being said, there are some good people that are within the Organization still, and I can tell you they are thoroughly confused right now.
"The Real Roger Dorn, but only from Major League, not the last two."
as long as they come back I don't care. I love the team not the owner. BTW it almost seems like Shinn it trying to posin the market like benson always does. He doesn't say it directly but says he wants to move and lets it leak out. Just around the time the Hornets are coming to NO for a game. Sounds like he wants to hurt ticket sales and tell the league .. see they can't even sell out 3 gamesOriginally Posted by Harvey Hornet
Ladies and Gentlemen, Your New Orleans Hornets
Shinn might not have a free pass to do that with the press, Benson did.Originally Posted by Harvey Hornet
The national press has always ignored Benson, most people didn't know who he was until the hurricane (and he was firmly in SA). Shinn is different, the press hates him and they all beat the hell out of him for leaving CLT (along with his personal problems in CLT).
The national sports media does not love New Orleans when it comes to pro basketball, the very same writers that have written tough articles demanding the Saints stay in NO are also writing the Hornets should relocate to OKC . . . however Shinn is an easy target and I doubt the press will support, help, or further Shinn's actions. You think Benson was made out to be the devil, just wait until the national press gets a hold of this stuff. Stern may not be powerful enough to keep this down, it may not be a story on NBATV but I'm sure FOX, ESPN, etc will have something to say about this.
Not a problem. Of course you know it has nothing to do with you. Hey, I can be naive with the best of 'em too....Originally Posted by Trueblood
Now say something else thoughtfully quoteworthy for a future sig - knowing you, it won't take long.
You'll note I've since stricken a Shinn/faith quote attributed to an upstanding memver of this board. Man, how I wanted to believe Shinn.Originally Posted by rogerdorn1
BUT clearly I have been proven wrong.
I thought you were a man of faith Shinn. You lying scumbag. I supported you and stood up for you countless times when CHA fans I ran into bad mouthed you. Guess they were right.
Screw you and your little pizza boy Shinn! Say hi to the wife and mistress for me.
