    On another note, I just want to point out to you that I am a Muslim and I have legit intel that Mr.Benson has actually converted to Islam (Hah-just snuck another one by you just like we did with Barack Hussein Obama). While New Orleans Muslims would be a great name, we like our plans for world domination and submission to be a little more stealth.

    While voodoo wouldn't be as unpopular as Muslims, it still has a negative connotation that would turn some people off.
    Every bit as negative as Vampires and Zombies. You're right, the public would never spend their entertainment dollars on anything associated with something so unsavory.

    The Kelts (Celtics) were pagans.

    Most of them- of course now there are Neo-Druids, so technically Celts could still be symbolic of evil..

    Given that I have Scottish and Irish ancestors, I'd like to think Celts can still be a little evil

    If attendance was about 7k, you figure maybe 2.5-3k from each team and 1k or so local? High school teams travel better than that.

    When Pelicans becomes the official mascot, hopefully placing the Louisiana State flag at midcourt will get some consideration.

    They should have just sold Benson the rights to Voodoo in exchange for his buying all of those empty seats.

    Just Scottish for me.

    Neo-Druids weren't the Celts that Boston was named after. Just the Catholics

    Same here. I didn't like it but his ignorant attitude made me like it. I believe he is a troll and almost hope he is.

    Pelicans will be a embarrassing disgrace to rebrand. No people will find it "hip" cool or cute but only a few New Orleans people. Let's be real people.

    Yet matter of fact, pelican lovers should ask people of this website, on the streets, campus, social networks, and outer state and see how many New Orleanians and others think how "awesome" it is.

    By the way I vote, Krewe,Brass, Knights, and Voodoo.

    No one, and I mean no one, outside of the city of New Orleans will find Krewe "hip," cool, or cute. Brass and VooDoo, with the right design, could have appeal outside of the region. Knights, aside from alliterative value, is no less generic than Wildcats, Eagles, Panthers, or Bulldogs.
