    Pelicans sound like a Elementary school mascot.

    I would prefer Hornets over Pelicans. I remember being excited about this rebranding. Now with all the supposedly front-runners I'm strongly disappointed. If we end up the Pelicans it will be the epitome of being careful what you wish for.

    Indeed!

    I can see people throwing a fit over crap like Spirit or Angels, but it's strange to me that so many people don't like Pelicans. Voodoo, Krewe, Brass and Pelicans all sound fine to me...

    It's not a ton, it's the same five people posting over and over about how horrible it is.

    Man I feel you but you should know better than anybody that on this board if you disagree with the masses you will get argued down and get labeled a troll.
    Like I said before I can deal with the Pelicans but I honestly feel the Hornets is better .....my opinion.

    The masses? Honestly, to me it looks like it's 80/20 against Pelicans. I feel like the outsider at this point because I don't hate the name.

    Bottom line... It's Benson's Team and he'll do what he wants.... Regular Season can't get here soon enough. We've beat soooo many dead horses on this board can't wait till we can talk about some real ball.

  13. #138
    I don't hate it either. It's probably the best of all the options. I guess I'm just extra pro Hornets. Question: are they planning on changing the colors also? Like will it be black& gold or something?

    hornets is a way better name than pelicans.

    My top 3 names would be pelicans, krewe, and brass. Pelicans is not as bad as some on here make it out to be. Some on here act like the mascots have a death match before the game to see who gets the ball first. Plus that pelican logo would look great a half court.

    Im going to miss the Hornets... because im a true Hornets fan, not New orleans fan
    New Orleans Pelicans-Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Braves-Anaheim Ducks

    PERFECTION

    Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
    And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
    If you die, tell them that you played my game
    I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.

    Not really, more of a disappointment of Benson for wanting such a cheesy name like the Pelicans...

    Luckily it seems a lot of people feel this way. I doubt Benson will go with a name that doesn't have much local support.

    And plus it has the same color scheme of the Lakers... except with green in there...
    Is there a list of the possible names?

    Pelicans isn't the worst but it would be my 4th or fifth option from those constantly named.

    No color scheme, design, or mascot has been decided on and no official list of possibilities of any of them exist. It is completely up in the air.

    Huh? That's just a random person's mock up with no affiliation with the team. And it just so happens to be mardi gras colors out of towner.

    I really doubt that will be close to the scheme. I'd bet it will be either a light blue and grey, red/gold/black or black and gold.
