    I think in time people could get use to Knights or Revelers. Revelers has more N.O. possibilities though. You could have a court jester dressed in purple, green, and gold as the mascot. I think it would take some time for the name to grow on people. Its hard to look at new names when the Jazz was so good and Hornets has become popular due to the repetition of its calling here the last several months.

Also, you should realize that some of these topics have been discussed over and over. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't discuss them, though. This is my first post on this topic because I have been avoiding it due to the repetitive subject matter involved, but I relented tonight.

    Take it easy and enjoy the board. I am sure you and I will be later.
    Thanks WCH, glad I didn't rate a coullion for this one.

    Hawkeye, I probably came across the wrong way in my earlier posts in this thread, and a little too sarcastic for such a benign thread...it was probably a little bit of the Laker plague affecting me By all means I did not mean to say or imply that you should not post on certain topics. We all have our opinions and yes we do express them....sometimes a little strongly.

    Since I did not say it earlier, welcome to the board. I am sure there will be things we agree about in the future (as well as future disagreements). You will find that on a whole, the board members get along, even though we disagree strongly about certain subjects - but that is part of the fun of this board.

    I guess we will agree to disagree. Knights is OK I guess.

    Ah, how correct you are. I haven't been to NOLA during the summer in probably 10 years. By the way, Jazzland is nice, but why isn't there a huge water park in town a la the Schlitterbahn in San Antonio? When I was a kid, there was one just off of I-10 at Clearview in Met. There are still some on the MS Gulf Coast, I think, and there were a few at Pensacola Beach before that hurricane wiped out 1/2 of Santa Rosa Island. You guys need a water park. There is one in So. Cal. at San Dimas, which is pretty cool. All hot towns should have a water park. Later...
    I have a feeling that Six Flags will come up with something like Astroworld. They have Waterworld next to Astroworld. There is plenty of ground for it next to Jazzland (Six Flags). I think the next few years will be great for that new Six Flags (Jazzland). They will do things right out there now. Look for a water park in a few next to it.

    According to reports, they're going to invest about $25 million in the next couple of years. I also heard they're going to a water park. After that, the speedway is going to be added.

    All those who do not wish to read about what some have referred to as the repetitive issue of a name change please click your mouse. Hopefully my comments may find some welcome ears of the newer members, like myself, who were not around before the issue became repetitious to some.
    The main purpose of my original post was to simply state that I, personally, will never be happy with an inherited name no matter what it might be. I did not mean to stir up a sandstorm. However, in view of the response it tells me that the issue is far from settled.

    Having been raised in NOLA I know that the people there are extremely proud of their heritage, maybe more so than any other place in the country, and since this is the only NBA team we will ever have in our lifetime I firmly believe that many would like a name reflecting on that pride and not one that reflects on the pride of the city of Charlotte which the name "Hornets" does. If you read their boards about why they chose "Hornets" you will find that this name does not just refer to a fierce insect but historically is very meaningful to them as the area was referred to as a "hornet's nest" when the area banded together in times of great strife.I feel that we should release that name back to them to be available if they do get another NBA franchise.
    It is probably true that the name is set for the next two years but if a change is to be made I believe it should come much sooner than that or we will probably be stuck with the present name from now on. For those who like the name "Hornets" I suggest that you read about the background of that name as it applies to the history of the Charalotte area and you will realize that you are fostering the pride of that area and not that of your own.
    Wherever the team goes they will be representing us and we should let the team and the world know that we are proud enough of them to want to give them an appropriate name that makes them solid members of our community, not some other, and when I say community I refer to the whole region they will represent.

    Yeah...

    Relax, Like I said in a previous post, most are not fundamentally against a name change. However none suggested seem to be very appealing. Come up with a good one and I would be inclined to support the change. Most agree and think until a better name can be found this is a non issue

    Until there is an agreeable popular name for the team, Hornets will be the name. I think Shinn and Wooldridge also have alot of money tied up in the name and don't want to release it just because it has no meaning to N.O. It is a nickname regardless of its history which New Orleans is now part of. Alot of blood, sweat and tears went into "capturing the Hornets" . So actually it does have a little meaning here now. I agree a new name would be nice, but I just haven't seen any that grab me like the Jazz or the Hornets. Revelers and Knights that RENFo mentioned are good, but if voted on I think the majority will want to keep the Hornets name. We can still modify the logo and existing colors to suit New Orleans. So we can make it look different than Charlotte's image. I think it will take a great outpouring from the people at this point to change it. And so far that hasn't happened.

    The only name out there I like that I've heard is "Rhythm". Other than that one, I say keep it the Hornets.

    How about the Coon @sses, Crawfish, neutria, gators, cajuns, hangovers, pimps, gangstas, canecoyotes (sugar cane), cottonmouths, flying squirrels, mosquitoes, or the Blues?
    If not how bout we get Popeyes to buy out the naming rights to the team and arena, the team would be the Spinach eating m*tha f*ckas and the arena would be Popeyes chicken castle.
