    The name is still a mystery, but there have been several rumors of Benson wanting red, gold, and black as the new colors.
    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? I'm only aware of the one, almost-throw-away mention by a reporter after a segment on Benson's wife -- and it was that Gayle Benson liked the colors, not necessarily Tom.

    I believe it was 5 years ago when I heard my wife tell her best friend that she had made a New Years resolution ....she vowed that she would never repeat gossip again and thus told her friend to listen very, very closely the first time!

    I've seen it referenced in several articles, so I think there may be some truth to it. However, all rebrand related rhetoric is questionable on various levels right now. It seems to be on Benson's back burner (say that 5 times, really fast ) for now.

    Pelicans don't give a ****. They'll eat you. Your family. Your home. And your soul.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    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.

    Didn't see that but he said that they would be posting info very soon about the rebrand.

    Is this true?

    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 didn't save them because bigdub didn't want them compromised, but they were really awesome. And I've heard that there are other mocks out there.

    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...

    Type(s) Registered: TRADE NAME
    Registered Name: NEW ORLEANS PELICANS
    Applicant: TOM BENSON
    5800 AIRLINE DRIVE
    METAIRIE, LA 70003
    Type Of Business: MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL TEAM
    Book #: 50-0961
    Current Status: INACTIVE
    Inactive Reason: EXPIRED

    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...

    Dub's brilliant.

    This was discussed quite a bit when the Spirit and Angels names were registered, who knows. And who knows if that data is even up-to-date.

    Totally agree, he is quite brilliant. But the head and logo I'm wearing is someone else's work. I would bet that dub's work would be even better.

  21. #446
    Oh yeah, I mean that I saw what Dub did with it. Totally, 100% top notch. Wowzas.
