    The New Orleans Limbos. Pretty much describes where this franchise has been for years.

    I like the Brass. I personally would go a different way with uniforms compared to what has previously been discussed. I would like the colors to be Navy blue, Brass/Gold, and white. (Notre Dameish). I would still do the Mardi Gras unis during Mardi Gras like they do currently. The navy,brass, white color scheme will always look good and would be a nice change from creole/teal. BigDub 81 if you see this I would love to see what you can do with it if it isn't too much trouble

    Hornets aren't a bad name. Its just not too fitting for a Nola Team. Since it will be a new owner, new team just think a fresh start is nice. Brass is very similar to a name like JAZZ. A little different more nola than typical nicknames

    I really think it should stay as Hornets, but Brass is a pretty sick name.

    @ATR22, I did a Brass concept that was the same as my Krewe concept. The only thing different was the name. A color change is simple but you would need a 4th color since white isn't technically considered a color in logo design. Mainly because white is either used within the logo or as an outline. Right now you stand at navy and gold. Take the 'NOLA trumpet' logo for instance, replace the purple for navy, gold for a brass gold and now what color would the letters be?

    Here's what I was thinking when I posted that.

    Home Uniform: White (obviously) with gold/brass numbering, navy outline (maybe other way around, Id have to see it)
    Road uniform: Navy with white numbers, gold/brass outline

    if that doesn't help you I trust your judgement on a 4th color and if you don't feel like doing it no worries

    I would do a three way trade were Utah becomes the bobcats, Charlotte is contracted, and we get the rights to the Jazz and then ceremoniously bury it and stay the Hornets...is that too much to ask?

    New Orleans Bourbon Streets?

I would say we don't deserve a franchise if the only way we can get 10,000 fans interested is if they win a title. Sorry, but that's an excuse most objective fans would not accept for a losing franchise that could easily be relocated to city more interested in having a team.
    You must not have met the tankers around here. They don't want to watch the Hornets if they're not contenders.

    In the fantasy world where that actually happened and you were the one responsible for burying the Jazz name and keeping the Hornets... you would be ceremoniously led to the city limits and excommunicated from New Orleans fandom... including the Saints.

    I don't mind the Hornets name. What I'd like to see is a "reboot" of sorts. It's a black and gold town and wouldn't you know it... actual hornets are black and gold (well maybe a bit more yellow). Why not run with that? That'll give the New Orleans Hornets a touch of home. I'd really like to see something like that happen rather than a potentially lame name change.
