Most everyone is simply complaining because it's not their favorite. That's silly. To even bring up not cheering for the team anymore because of the name, well that's assinine.
If they had come out with dog poop as the name, then maybe I could understand most of the responses in this thread. But our state bird? I'm just asking for perspective.
My love and support for the team won't change because of the name... but as a born and raised New Orleanian, that cares about MY city, then I've earned the right to ***** and moan about the name of the team that's representing MY city.
I'll still love them... I just hate the name. Don't see what's so wrong about that. just because other teams have jacked up names doesn't make it right.
PS- da Throne....
I was commenting on the general feel and tone of the thread. Don't take my response as saying nothing is valid.
I completely agree that the alliteration of New Orleans Pelicans is lacking. As I said, my choice would be Krewe.

Pelicans has grown on me. Its unique, fits the state, and is a bit goofy (to me, now in a good way) and endearing.

The post is written, awaiting some calls to come back, proof, maybe a little more research.
There's not much that has not been said, but getting it out with correct info (there has been misinformation on this board) is nore important (to me) than getting it out nownownow when much of it is already public.
Post up tomorrow regardless. It'd be today if it wasn't a game day. Don't expect some secret knowledge about the 'truth'. We don't have it at this time and don't plan on getting it.

I didn't tweet, but they looked pretty matter of fact to me. Looks like a case of eager reader.
I will yell you that the main reason the post was not out Tuesday or Wednesday was that I was setting up for Hornets247 that will start to see the light of day in a week or two. Let's not chicken count yet, but it should be good.
