    You constantly forget to read my entire posts.

    So Kansas City is named after a livestock rodeo. Our whole city and state's culture (name, symbol, food, traditions) are based on royalty. Way to find the google button on your intranet machine loser.

    Holy Cow! This is udderly mooooving!

    Some will hold to their sacred cows, but we can rustle up some support from the frontier. We've been grazing on names for a while, and it's not a wide open field now, but maybe we can horn our way in. This is not our first rodeo, and we are used to bucking the trend. That isn't bull. We can milk this with t-shirts, chaps. Golden calf on a field of green, lassoed for the logo.

    Don't follow the herd! Chase it! Go cowboys!

    LOL, resorting to name calling after repeatedly getting owned. The team has the same chance of being called the Royals as the Jazz. Get over it.

    Besides, the Royals history in KC triumphs anything that it would mean to NOLA. George Brett says it all.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    That's funny, because Voodoo happens to be owned by another team: and it's actually in use at the moment. In fact, you may be familiar with the building they play in. The one over there on Girod. If they can win 3 of the next 4 they will actually be in the playoffs too.

    You mean the same league that is about to have a lockout and could fold anytime soon.

    But yeah, I've always said the VooDoo isn't available right now.

    I have seeen the liight. FacTs... are overrated. What riiings true is conVICtion. ConVICtion. What we need is a name that isn't tied to history, facts, or reality. Even language. We will have HO-LY NAA-MAH! A name with no SOUND-SA! It will BEEEEE:

    My point is the name shouldn't be subtle. This city needs a name that is says NOLA the second you hear it.

    I don't disagree with you in the least, but I would go as far as suggesting that this would be an NBA first...its a really good thing that all current franchises keep their location directly in front of their nicknames....

    I still believe the name will end up Angels if it is indeed changed. It wouldn't surprise me if they went with black and gold. I'm not a huge fan of that Idea but if they do I think they should take a page out of purdue's uni book.

    The pilot sketch/concept could be cool in B&G and we could make the logo huge at mid court similar to purdue's train.

    Dub, I'd like to hear your thoughts/see your ideas, positive or negative.
    I'm not a fan of making the team's colors black and gold because those belong to the Saints. Benson owning both franchises would make that scheme seem like the most obvious choice compounded with the fact that no other NBA team currently utilizes them.

    Regardless of it being two separate leagues, many will see it as our NBA team piggy-backing off of their NFL counterparts. I just think that there is still enough uniqueness in this city that we can derive our colors from a broader palette.

    I'm with you honestly I would prefer we didn't go Black and Gold. I would love a navy a gold...Kinda like UCLA alternates. I think pilots would look really nice in blue and gold. I am a big fan of Purdue's over sized art at mid court though and thought your sketch would look nice in that style.

    I'm sure Mavericks fans were really upset that their team was "piggy-backing" the cowboys by changing their colors to Blue and silver. My point being it is a silly reservation to have. Black and Gold is a great color scheme.

    Say what you want, it's just how I feel about it. I agree that black and gold is a great color scheme. I bleed black and gold for my Saints and if so be it our NBA team chooses to wear the same, then I will do the same for them. Frankly I could give two f***'s about how upset a Maverick fan might have been because of their palette change.

    They had a nice color scheme from their inception and I'm pretty sure that neither the Celtics or Bucks got upset by them "piggy-backing" off of them by wearing green. Come to think of it, the Jazz should have been pretty pissed as well because they went into Utah wearing green road's for their first three years. Who are these 'Mavericks' to come in and steal their color?

    Let's go a bit further and throw the Timberwolves into that mix seeing as they're initial color scheme was closer to the Mav's than any of the other three. Aside from the Celtics adding a green/black alternate a few years ago, each one of these teams have undergone no less than three uniform/color changes since their inception.

    Maybe it's time for the Mav's to get mad at the Timberwolves again seeing as they have dropped green from their uniforms and instead opted for silver! OMFG!!!!! THEY'RE WEARING THE SAME COLORS!!!!
