    I was mostly talking about the sale of the brand which I would still expect to happen in the next month if Benson was going to buy it. He can still announce it and have it set to 'go live' in 2013-2014. If he doesn't buy it in August/September then he probably will never buy it.

    I think that's right.

    There's a part of me that wants it to happen now. Just get it over with. End the conversation.

    No, although the Arena Bowl will be in town in a couple of weeks so that would give Benson and the AFL a chance at face-to-face negotiations if he is still interested.

    negotiations? meh

    if benson REALLY wants the name he should show up to the meeting with cash, flash $3 million in their faces, they would be dumb not to accept.

    While Benson could do that let's not forget who we're talking about. This is a guy who puts the brass screws to anyone and everyone he brokers a deal with from the State of Louisiana, to the City of New Orleans, to David Stern and the NBA. Yes, three million is pocket change to him but I doubt he gives up a dime more than he has to for the name.

    There is a big difference between a million dollars and my million dollars.

    If he gives up $3 million for that name then he should be institutionalized.

    Perxactly.

    The Benson cartoon you have always make me think of this pair of poems by Tennyson, particularly the new style one:

    What I don't understand is why they have a 25 month rule in place if we can just bypass it at will? Forgive my bias but I like "Hornets." Still, though.

    What I think is, the 2 year rule is in place if a team just wants a new name. But if a team wants to change their name because of new ownership or a relocation, then perhaps exceptions are then made to shorten the rule.

    Is that right? And here I thought I was just asking a valid question. If you don't have an answer, then shove it.

    I guess that must be it.
