    It seems there are many different ideas what to rename the team. I am curious though what colors best represent not only who the team is, but what they can be. The Mardi Gras colors obviously would be popular. But I think its cool to thing outside the typical color scheme. Or at least incorporate those colors with other ideas. To me a good color scheme for a team will consist of 2 or 3 colors. Any more and you are looking at a rainbow. Here are some color combos I like (dominate color first, letters/numbers color second, piping third:

    I think those all black Heat uni's are slick. But instead of all black how about: dark charcoal gray, white

    or

    Dark charcoal Gray, dark purple, burgundy red
    Hunter Green, Black, White
    Black, Dark Purple, Gold
    Black, Gold, Blue

    Whats your ideas?
    My good sir, I thank you. I was struggling for color ideas for a Voodoo concept I've been thinking about, and you just might have helped me get on track. All of the color schemes you suggested would work great for the Voodoo, except for Black/Gold/Blue, which is a better fit for Dukes or Pilots.

    Protest from my daughter

    My lovely little girl just mentioned to me that the Honeybee is the state insect. Who knew? That is as good a reason as any to keep the name the same.....

    For that suggestion you should lock her in the closet for two days with just bread and water. Can you tell I am not a parent?

    I am a parent, and your advice is still sound.

    As a parent you might want to let her know that a Hornet isn't a Honeybee

    May be time to ask one of your neighbors to kick you square between the legs.

    She's smarter than you because she probably knows the difference between a hornet and a honeybee.

    For instance, some species of hornets swarm honeybee hives and slaughter them to jack their honey.

    In that case we can be the ostriches because our state bird is also a bird.

    Nope. It's not even official that David Stern will let us.

    Don't think it's an issue of "let." More like we have to go through the right channels. I mean this can't be something new to Stern. Benson had to have brought this up in the negotiations to buy the team.

    You know, when you sound it out New Orleans Rebels has a good ring to it. I know has a lot of college taste around here, but just sound it out.

    Would allow for a lot of different logos, too. Bandit/Sharpshooter etc.

    I like Rebels but its not very politically correct. If we went that route I think logo/mascot should include Andrew Jackson.

    What's not PC about it?

    Good idea btw about AJ. Shoot, I would take this almost directly as the logo:

    Its seen as a civil war reference. And rebels(confederates) were seen as pro slavery which may create problems among African American fans. With the right logo/mascot it could work. Ole Miss is still the rebels but they recently had to change the masot.

    I love the idea of using Jackson as within the logo/branding, but he wasn't a "Rebel."

    Technically you are correct. However you could argue/shape that he was a rebel against Great Britain. It would help make the logo/mascot more PC and make sense in New Orleans.

    The Outlaws? that's what I thought when I saw those logos...
