The last thing I want is people to find our name "hip." This isn't about what people in Ottawa think of our name. So long as the name is about us. Krewe works for that purpose.
And so does Pelicans. Though I'd rather Krewe, VooDoo, Brass, adn even Knights before that.
Arc(h) Angels too.

Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams
Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston
Pelicans sounds like a MiLB team. Don't tell me you don't agree.
Pelicans would better suit a girl beach volley ball team or a terrible WNBA team
I once had some of the worst grits and drippings in the Queen City
I was lucky enough to spend the past weekend in y'alls' lovely city, and I met up with Big Dub Friday for what turned out to be a great night on the town. As an outsider, I kind of failed to grasp the 'Pelicans' thing too, but he showed me some of the new stuff he's been working on (but hasn't posted online yet), and I feel fairly confident that if y'all saw what he's drawn up (particularly the logo...wow) some minds would be changed (I know mine was).
Anybody that's seen his other designs knows he can make just about anything look good, but man...I was blown away with the Pelicans motif. Don't rule it out just yet
And yeah...New Orleans...WOW. I've never been sadder to leave a city than I was while I sat on the tarmac at MSY this morning. Thoroughly blown away. Can't wait to come back!!!
We Beelieve: Charlotte...Take Back Your Hornets! links:
Glad you had a good time
And I really feel that the name isn't nearly as important as the logo/theme, as you expressed with the Pelicans name and logo. Glad Dub's getting some official eyes on his work, it's the best out there that I've seen.
Arc(h) Angels sound D-League & Knights sounds college
Teams:New Orleans Hornets(Pelicans) & Houston Texans
I'm a fan of the Hornets since like 10 years ago when they were in Charlotte, and I would want them to keep the "Hornets" as the identifier. The name, the logo, the colours of the team looks AWESOME.
If they change it I will be really dissapointed and it will not be the same anymore.
On the other hand, I guess you guys want an "own" name for the team of New Orleans city because you may "feel" like it's not yours, cos the team before arriving at your city was from Charlotte.
I'm from Barcelona by the way!

Not a question of 'if' but 'when.'

What makes a great NBA uniform?
http://espn.go.com/espn/playbook/sto...-ones-bad-onesTo wit: The Hornets, a fairly average club since moving to New Orleans, may not seem to have a particularly outstanding outfit. The pinstripes don't exactly mesh with this incarnation of the team, and they seem to be trying too hard with those newfangled side panels. But their locally inspired font and Mardi Gras-honoring alternates are tasteful ways to incorporate the city's flavor and culture. (The "Nola" alternates are garish, but, hey, it fits the locale.) The team's identity is its city, and the designers captured it nicely.
I guess the next time he does one of these we'll have new unis by then.
The Mardi Gras colors would be a great look. I would enjoy seeing that color scheme as long as New Orleans is on the away jersey as opposed to the brand. I wouldn't mind seeing the city on the home jersey either.
As far as our jerseys go,
Let's face it, the stripes are awful.
The mardi gras jersey's are just painful on the eyes
I really hate the New Orleans in one row across the jerseys our name is too long for that.
I really like the two colors that are in the same shadish, it leads to a really visually attractive look, and it's important to keep it simple, the Rockets jerseys are a perfect example of the resulting awfulness if you don't.
A perfect example of what I'm talking about are these throwback Lakers Jerseys, put the New and Orleans on different levels like that
I don't really know what you can do with a Voodoo color scheme, I just think it's a recipe for disaster (pun intended). I mean no one really cares what your name is really, Clippers and Knickerbokers? Most people have no idea what those are. I would just pick a name that identifies with Nola and can be visually appealing in logo/color scheme/jersey

Mardi Gras jersey is awesome. I love the garishness and the over-the-top look it has.

Has anybody thought about the name Believers? We can keep the whole "Bees" thing. Our mascot can even still be a Bee. Maybe even black and gold although I would prefer something other than black. Maybe like a red and gold. Thoughts?????
