    There is no official logo because it isn't the official name yet. This is speculation by Yahoo! Sports.

    I know myself and several others have been involved in the rebrand threads for a while. One thing that a few of us bought up was how a brand (unis, colors, etc.) can help make a nickname. Admittedly, when I first heard Pelicans I was like "LOL WTH NOOOOO." But when I saw some nice concepts for it (BigDub plus maybe a couple others like above), it grew on me after being able to see it nicely done. Wasn't my favorite, but it's cool. I dig it. Unique name. Non-inanimate object or fictional figure.

    And if Gayle's color thing is true, yeah it sounds like a weird combo, but if schemed similarly to the above, it will go hard. So personally, I'm hoping for a fire logo, color scheme, and jerseys to really bring the name together.

    Winning solves everything
    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.

    That's an inane argument because there are unlimited possibilities of what the name COULD be. People are upset that their favorite name wasn't picked, it's as simple as that.

    Know what's an even better way to choose name? It's 1995. What's a popular movie in the last two years? Jurassic Park!

    Know what's an even betterer way to choose a name? What's a name of something on a basketball court? Now, can't be the Goals. Or the Baskets. Or the Balls.

    How about the Nets!
    Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.

    Only on WBOK 1230 AM.

    Feel free to PM me for more details.

    I wouldn't call it ego. I think excitement.

    I was never sure where the fan vote thing came from.

    Benson did do one for Voodoo, at least. There was a precedent. Still, I didn't equate the help with a vote and have no issues with this process this time.

    Not that it matters. If there was a vote and Pelicans won people would still complain and say it was rigged.

    I equated "help" with some type of extensive focus testing or something not necessarily a vote cause those never go well

    Perhaps they did employee some kind of analytics that told them "Pelicans" was the right choice?

    So what are some nicknames for the Pelicans?

    P Cans? Canes? Pels?

    This seems like a good sponsorship idea for Canes.

    A focus group or something like that is a far better way to judge reaction than a poll or by leaking names.

    For those hoping that's what this is, it seems like a reach given other ways to judge reaction.

    Navy, red, and gold aren't the colors of the Louisiana state flag. And Tom Benson never owned the Pelicans minor league baseball team.
    I misspoke about Benson previously owning the team because that's someone told me but he does own the naming rights which was my point. And there are four colors in the Louisiana state flag. Blue, red, gold, and white.

    But with the advent of twitter and other social media they essentially have the world as there focus group with in seconds via one leak so I wouldn't put it past them and it did trend most of the evening.
