    It's better than Krewe. Was hoping for Brass.

    what hurts is that i'm sure they considered a bunch of good ones. I don't consider myself hard to please. I mean I had a few favorites and all but i actually liked around 8-10 of the suggestions, just of the ones i myself had heard. Pelicans was truly the only name i was actively rooting against. It even made me come around on other names by comparison.

    And just because it isn't your first choice (or few) doesn't make it bad.

    I wish we could've just bought the name "Voodoo" from the AFL team. That was by far the best name thrown out there. Pelicans is boring.

    No what makes it bad is how a Pelican is a very goofy awkward looking bird to be naming your team after when said team is located in a city with such a rich and awesome culture.

    Benson paid nearly 400 mil for the team so it's his call but I for one was really hoping he was serious about seeking help with name.

    You really think it's a good name for a NBA basketball team? Reminds me of a womens' softball team.

    this is soooo bad, the pelicans? there is no positve quality of a pelican, atleast a cardinal is an exotic looking bird, a pelican is a big unathletic bird with a big gullet... awesome...

    It'll be okay. In a few years you won't even realize how stupid it sounds. They play in a league where teams are named after weather, car parts, and pants. Far from the worst imaginable.

    New Orleans is all about being unique, offbeat, and incomprehensible to outsiders. This name fits us like a glove.

    Is it what we all wanted? No. Could we agree on any name? No.

    You know what it is? It's us. It's ours.

    I'm on board.

    Get over it. Stop crying like a female dog. If this is our name, accept it. Get on board with it. We're the birds you love you hate now!
