    I'm torn. I'm with a lot of people that think that Brass is a little safe, but probably the best option. For what it's worth, here's bigdub's Krewe design (original, not black and gold obviously):

    I like Krewe more. We've has Brass before in New Orleans, I'm looking for a fresh start.

    I am torn as well between the Krewe and Brass. Brass does seem like a "safe" pick. But as said, it has been used before, and seems too close to Jazz in both sound and portrayal. I'm kinda liking the Krewe with an alligator type mascot and mardi gras colors. Too cliche?

    Yea Brass is too similar to Jazz, and the AFL has kinda ruined how 'Voodoo' would be looked at on a big stage. Krewe of New Orleans is just bad ***.

    (but I still like ArcAngels, Pelicans, Breakers, and Bucaneers)

    Krewe has a weird effect on me. The more I see it, the more I hate it. I just don't think it passes the eye test.

    I want Krewe the most out of these. Something new, unique, and will separate us from the rest - that's what the Krewe would be. I also think there's a lot more marketing possibilities with the Krewe brand and I think merchandise would sell better than that with Voodoo or Brass, something that's already been on the market before.

    I just cant go with the Brass, because every time I here New Orleans Brass, I think minor league Hockey.

    I like the Pirates /Privateers something do with the war of 1812.. Crewe just does not sound right.

    If we get those exact jerseys, I'll take Krewe. But since there are no guarantees in life, I went with the name the rolls off the tongue the best - New Orleans Brass. The absolute best of both worlds would be take those jerseys and add Brass. I would love it.

    I expect Voodoo to fade in the this pole

    Since Tom Benson bought the team I think the name should either contrast or compliment the Saints name, not that it has to but it would be nice. So I thought the name "Cajun Devils" would be a nice fit. We could call the arena "Hell" and when the PA announcer introduces the opposing team, he can say "Welcome to Hell!" and than give a wicked laugh. I think that would be unique.

    This will be a odd answer. I'd rather Krewe, but only if we keep those jerseys. If not, I say Brass with Black and Gold jerseys. Might sound odd but it's just how I feel

    The original Brass were shortlived and the name has not been in use for 10 years, so I don't care that it is a name that has been used before. I agree that Krewe is orginal, but I just don't like it. With teams being named over the last 100 years, we probably will have to re-use a name or use one that someone else in another league is using. Just because it is original, doesn't mean it is necessarily a good name.

    Pelicans because
    1) BigDub's mockups a while back for that name looked insane
    2) It's a retro NOLA team name, which is pretty cool (also why I like Breakers and Bucs)
    3) It logistically makes sense considering Benson already owns the name

    As for ArcAngels... Well, Hornets78 has made the pitch several times elsewhere, I'll leave it to that.

    Hornets78 has made the pitch so often that it is extremely polarizing...lol. If you are willing to speak of ArcAngels, the pitch is coming. In all seriousness, it is growing on me. I doubt we use it, but I wouldnt be upset with it.

    Everyone will laugh at us if we were a Pelican.
