Wouldn't it make more sense to just rebrand? Your talking about changing everything anywaysI have wanted to rebrand since the day they announced the Hornets were moving to New Orleans. When I heard about the possibility of the Voodoo a couple of months ago, thought this is so great - but now it appears that it's not going to happen since we haven't heard a word about it in months. I'm so disappointed and for the first time I just as soon keep the Hornets because nothing else really works except the Jazz and that's long gone.
However, I encourage the organization to get rid of all the old bee stuff and only use the Fleur-da-bee, NOLA and the other specifically New Orleans related symbols. PLEASE get rid of that stupid looking little bee that's typically used by the national press as the symbol for our team. Also, burn the bee mascot uniform (I've blocked the name of that ridiculous "living" mascot from my memory).
Finally, change the team colors to traditional Mardi Grass colors and change the uniforms to incorporate
he new colors and display the Fleur-da-bee.
One thing I think is great is having "New Orleans" on the jerseys of both home and away uniforms. Love it. Never, ever just have "Hornets".
I know the chances of rebranding to the Voodoo are probably zero, but that would be so great if it were the Voodoo winning an NBA title in a couple of years and not the goofy bees.
