    I'm coming to the realization that the NBA fan populace as a whole hates change. We hate new names, new uniforms, especially if it isn't our team. I GUARANTEE you that a forum of non-Hornets fans will hate whatever name and logo we pick. That's just what NBA fans are now; we're haters, the lot of us. With that in mind, I want the ugliest colors/most ridiculous name possible, because haters gon hate.

    In that case: colors should be poo brown and yellow, and we should be the New Orleans Rocking Chairs.

    this is soooo true.

    it's not nba fans, it's humans. humans evolved advanced technology through hard-wired pattern recognition and inferential prowess, plus thumbs. take either away, and people get grumpy.

    Heard some chatter that I trust that Pelicans has been decided on.

    Hmmm, interesting.

    Well, after hearing more, now I'm less positive...sorry for misleading info. I misunderstood original info. Now all i know is it's "old school." Definitely could be Pelicans, but could also mean plenty of others...bucs, brass, breakers, etc. April is supposed to be when we find out. We've got a long wait..

    Brass would make me happy.

    Pelicans would make me scratch my head.

    Bucs would make me vomit.

    April - May makes the most sense if it's not Voodoo.

    Same, actually. One of my darkhorse favorites especially with the mock up that bigdub did. Classic and it rolls off the tongue.

    my only problem with the Breakers is it sounds too close to the Lakers

  15. #615
    I like the Breakers much more than the Pelicans

    It's like choosing between a punch in the mouth and a kick in the balls.

    And the punch in the mouth is the state symbol.

    You are My Sunshine is the state song.

    There's a brand. Same justification.

    Or is that justification silly?

    In all seriousness, i think some one needs to do a thorough investigation into this cover up.

    The only "Old School" name that deserves the team we're putting together is the Buccaneers, but with a change to the mascot. Go for the skull and bones look.

    I was just about to post the same thing. I'm assuming you got this information from the NOLA skyscraper forum? If not, the information you have and the information on that board are eerily similar. Later on in the thread,the guy said an announcement could come in December.

    Wow, thanks for the find. I haven't even gotten to the rebrand information yet, but this forum is fascinating.
