Don't like the ellipses or the phone-fingers?
And everyone here got an A in English, right?

I'm sure I did. Phones kill me on the typing at work.
And your 2 exceeds my 1.
My math is right.
Supposedly at the Super Bowl luncheon:
Benson: "what's the name again?"
"Oh yeah we changin dat as soon as possible"
A in English. No way Jose. I am terrible in English, and I am sorry for all of you who have to read my thoughts.
I'm really going to miss seeing the Fleur-de-Bee on the hardwood.
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.
I know I'm an outsider, and I really do try to limit my posts here, but I thought y'all might be interested.
For the first time since all this craziness started, Jordan has specifically addressed a willingness to switch the name of his franchise to 'Hornets' when Benson pulls the trigger. The front office has offered vague/veiled implications that they'd be open to the change in the past, but never have they referenced Benson, NOLA, or the Hornets.
I think it's safe to say that he wouldn't be so forthright unless a deal was, for all intents and purposes, done. We're all ready to throw down up here
We Beelieve: Charlotte...Take Back Your Hornets! links:
I'm sure Benson's people have contacted them about a possible price tag on the brand. At the very least you just transfer the costs associated with rebranding on to Charlotte.
It will be a huge mistake if Benson pulls the trigger on a cheesy name change. Charlotte will jump on the Hornets brand so quick, and their fan base will double in seconds.
And the reason Charlotte taking back the Hornets name is bad for New Orleans is simple. The Hornets are a popular brand, and most national fans will jump ship back to Charlotte I presume. New Orleans will lose thousands of fans immediately from their fan base. I don't think calling them the Pelicans is going to turn locals from New Orleans into rabid basketball fanatics. To me, there doesn't seem to be any benefit of a name change.
Nothing to see here, just another generic fan whose allegiance is tied to a logo. You guys can feel free to go back rooting for the Charlotte Hornets. You won't be missed. Not by the other fans or by Benson and his piles and piles of money. Pretty sure an 85 year old couldn't care less about losing a few million on the margins and that's assuming his new brand doesn't sell like gangbusters throughout the Gulf South (which it probably will).
