    congrats to the new city of the hornets.. Lets hope New Orleans can do a better job than Charlotte did. 9K last night is a joke for a second round playoff.

    YEEEEEEEE-HAWWWWWWWWW

    Anyone know if there is going to be any TV/radio coverage during the call, or are they just going to break the news after the vote is taken?


    I survived Katrina, but nothing I owned did.

    Loser, Pull yourself away from the Computer and get your rear moving, You need to be here for NOON when the news starts, it should be sometime during the newscast when they break in, We need to go get food and be back for NOON.

    Leave now before I hit you like I wish someone would Tom Benson .

    It probably takes a few minutes to get all of them hooked up, then a few preliminaries, and THEY ARE PROBABLY VOTING RIGHT NOW .

    Guys, it's not too late. You do realize these guys poisoned the market in CLT. Traded away or let go every good player they ever had. You do realize Shinn was gettin' some from a cheerleader. He is the kind of guy that won't sell control of his team because we want him to. We can back out. It's not too late. Charlotte has warned us. I think we should consider overlooking the owners commitment to coming here and making it work. The Hornets may never win a championship. They will probably be no better than a .600 type team who makes the playoffs every year. What do you think? Should we back out?

    No, we won't back out. We will allow them to come and then demand that the sell to new owners. We will drive them out of town by not attending games. That will show them and Stern and the NBA will FORCE them to sell to new owners!

    No, instead I propose we force them to swap franchises with Tom Benson, that will show everyone we are serious.

    Great news!

    After 23 years....we're back in the game! I can hardly type...my hands are shaking!

    2:30 press conference!
    A football game can't stop hurricanes.

    It can't fix levees.

    Or rebuild houses.

    But it can let a city know...

    That it's a city once again.

    Welcome back, New Orleans.

    So much for a deal where they keep the name and get an expansion team. I really think CLT has damaged their relationship with the NBA to the extent where that could not become an issue at this time.
