With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!
Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.
Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
Several people have repeated it thus several rumors!

Jake from 247 is on twitter saying that he hears the name is pelicans. No link, sorry on a phone
Can someone post any of the mock-up Pelicans uniforms proposed in the past?! Thanks in advance
Pelicans don't give a ****. They'll eat you. Your family. Your home. And your soul.
Now I provide life insurance benefits.
I could be on board with Pelicans. It's very Louisiana. I do hope Benson is able to come to an agreement with MJ to get Charlotte the name Hornets back.. It does have a significant cultural meaning to them and it's worthless to us.
I love it.
"Times are not good here. The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under taxes and frauds and maladministraions so that it has become a study for archaeologists...but it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio."

I've been lucky enough to see some killer Pelicans concept art...I hope this is true!
And all2neat: thanks for the support. We've all been watching y'alls' development with bated breath; now we can truly get to work on our end
We Beelieve: Charlotte...Take Back Your Hornets! links:
Pelicans or Voodoo is fine by me.
As long as it isn't Spirit/Angels.
Pelicans is perfect for us honestly, it's like the outcast of the bird world that no one likes except for people that exactly know about the bird, perfect lol
"I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery
A trademark was granted for a New Orleans Basketball Spirit. Here's info from the Secretary of State's website:
THE SPIRIT OF NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA & LOGO: A BASKETBALL WITH NOLA ABOVE AND SPIRIT ACROSS AND BELOW THE MID SECTION. THERE ARE NOT RESTRICTIONS ON COLOR OR FONT.
It was granted at the end of August and is good for 10 years. Now, this could be someone trying to create a logo, hope the team infringes, and cash in, but you never know.
About the Pelicans -- Until May of this year, Benson owned the trade name "New Orleans Pelicans." That expired and is currently inactive. If he really wanted that name, and didn't want someone else to register it, then I seriously, seriously doubt his legal team would have let it lapse in the last 5 months...

But then again, who really knows, except those that made the decision.
As I alluded to above, I can vouch for what Purple's saying...the colors, the actual Pelican head logo...
Oh yeah, I mean that I saw what Dub did with it. Totally, 100% top notch. Wowzas.
Pelicans is almost as bad as Hornets.
Wow, this got negative in a hurry.
