    Breaking News Moving to PelicansReport.com & a few other site notes

    Things have been pretty smooth here in the past couple years. I just want to thank everyone for being part of the community, keeping the conversations lively and entertaining, and being so respectful of your fellow posters. Sometimes it's hard to keep in mind that there are actual people, with feelings and stuff, on the other end of the internet. We do a pretty good job of remembering, in my opinion at least.

    We've been through a lot of turmoil and drama in regard to the Hornets organization, and it would have been easy for a lot of us to give up hope for the future, to become enraged at the team, or simply to lose interest. Some have, and it's been tough to lose them. Fortunately they've largely been replaced by new fans, eager to be part of the beginning of what could be the next great basketball dynasty.

    Thinking back, it's hard to say exactly how many less fans would have meant that we lost our basketball team, but make no mistake-- there was a number. That number might have been 5 less great fans from 2007-2012 or 5000, but that a number exists in indisputable. I tend to believe that the number was on the low side, and I also tend to believe that if not for a community like this one, the Hornets would have had a much harder time surviving long enough to draft someone like Anthony Davis, to find an owner like Tom Benson, and to be rebranded as the Pelicans.

    I look west to Sacramento, a city that has long supported an inferior product, and wonder how it is that we came to survive a fate such as that.

    I tend to believe that it's largely because of you.

    Thanks to all the guys and girls who were here in the beginning (saywhat, ian, harvey, grandadmiral, and the rest) for creating something that in my opinion truly made a difference in the world of sports, and in New Orleans as a whole.

    Thanks to all the posters who hated Jeff Bower, and those those who defended him.

    Thanks to everyone who think Anthony Davis will lead us to the promiseland.

    That should cover everybody, right?

    All the mods deserve a lot of praise. HunnyB in particular deserves a ton of credit for moderating the heck out of this board. Thanks to her specifically for all the work she does keeping this place clean. If you've never said thanks to her before, or if you've cursed her name after she deleted your cuss-filled post, this might be the time to say... something.

    --

    In the next day or three we'll be moving over to PelicansReport.com and officially rebranding to Pelicans Report. It's going to be a whole big thing. It's possible the site will be down for a few hours and that a few posts will be swallowed up by the internet.

    Our email issues will also be sorted out in the next day or two. If you've had a problem registering because you never received your confirmation email, I've manually approved you. You're good to post. This applies to anyone who has registered in the last 750 days unsuccessfully.

    If it's been longer than that you'll have to register again. I deleted your previous unsuccessful registration, you so can re-register with any email or username. If you do it in the next two or three days, shoot me an email at JoeKnowsSports@gmail.com and I'll get you approved manually.


    For the rest of you, say goodbye to Hornets Report while you still can.

    Do we have to change the address we type in or will it automatically re-direct us?


    In other words, do I have to change all my bookmarks?

    Byeeeee Hornets Report!


    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    I assume Hornetsreport.com will automatically forward to PelicansReport.com? at least at first?
    Just wondering.

    Awe man this soooo awesome. This board has been through its share of ups and downs and I'm glad to witness and be apart of it all. I've been never been on a board like it and it'll be hard to find it, talk about class. Anyone else is kinda sad that hornets will be no more?

    "I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery

    Remember when I was a kid and we got the Hornets to come to the city. We loved watching Baron Davis and Wesley, PJ and Jamal. Great memories.

    Not one bit actually. The hardest part will be saying Pelicans when talking basketball now.

    Nope. Same names and history, just different domain name. One day it will just say PelicansReport and look a little different.

    There will be a redirect from HornetsReport to PelicansReport
