    And I wouldn't like having the same colors as the Sacramento Kings.

    At least Ravens (and even Bobcats to some extent) have alternative meanings/symbolism that allow for the name to become less about a person. What would Dominos become? If not for Fats Domino, it could be the most ridiculous name in all of sports (if people actually equated it to the game of Dominos or the pizza chain. Too specific.

    the more time passes, the more it's clear the only name with any sort of consensus is Brass. It's the least dis-liked.

    my favorite is still voodoo but i recognize others aren't okay with it.

    pulling for Brass.

    I wonder if the owner of the VooDoo would sell Benson back the name and the AFL team could rebrand as an updated Breakers? Maybe get Marcus Dupree back in as an honorary player similar to the role Duece has with the Saints. Think I'm gonna do an AFL Breakers concept for fun, get away from basketball for a minute, get back to my roots!

    So any "fun" name would do? Why not the New Orleans Fun then? See how silly that sounds (just like Big Shots).

    soo... did anyone see Gayle Benson on fox 8 last night? ...she said she wanted the color scheme to be "black, gold and crimson"... uh oh

    Eww. I'd have to see a treatment, but that could be a little too busy.

    I can't imagine it looking good, nor can I imagine a team name that would have those colors being good.

    I think the black, gold and crimson would work with the Pelicans sample logo and unis in the "ESPN Redisigns..." thread. I was a Krewe Of New Orleans partisan but Pelicans is beginning to grow on me.

    Yeah, I'm back. Since finals is over, I finally have some time to breathe. I'm working on on some other team designs now.

    hah, sorry. That actually looks really good. I'm very against the Knights name, though... last on my list.

    Also, apparently I was wrong on Gayle saying "crimson"...she actually said "cardinal red"

    Hopefully Mr. Benson is religious enough to realize than he is the man and therefore the leader of their marriage. Mrs. Benson's idea is just terrible with those ugly color schemes and the Cardinals nickname.

    Too close to the 49ers old color scheme! I know it's different leagues and all but....those colors just don't seem to fit us IMO! Which is why I so desperately want to show these friggin Pelican concepts!

    Lol, you did, even though you may not have recognized it. The "Knights" entry in the ESPN contest was my design. It wasn't in the top 5, but it did get a mention in the article.

    I could tweak this logo. There are a few things that I see here that need to be addressed, I mean it is 45% mine!
