    The more time I give it, the more and more Pelicans grows on me.

    I really like the name and I'm excited to see more details.

    I prefer Pelicans to Krewe, and would probably be just as excited for Brass as I am for Pelicans. Jesters and Revelers are lazy names invented by people who have no idea what this city is about.

    The Lakers easily handled the New Orleans Pelicans (Hornets), coasting to a 103-87 road victory...

    just doesn't sound good to me

    Tom Benson should buy the entire Arena league for 5 mill and put it out of it's misery, which they deserve for giving Arena fans that Arena 2 crap.

    Tommy Boy could then take the Voodoo name back and give this team the best brand in the NBA. From the logo to the mascot, Voodoo Dolls to the Graveyard and the Bee Zanies could become the Zombies. THIS WOULD BE EPIC!

    As you can see i'm still holding out hope that some last minute deal could be worked out...

    Very reasonable. TWolves.

    Also, I'd love Voodoo.

    I still like Dukes.. regal yet militant.

    Does the fact that Voodoo is off the table bode ill for our hopes that New Orleans Black Death Basketball Club Inc. will come home with a rush? Dang..

    On Fox 8, that Hornets still kicking around different names. Nothing's official. Should know more in approx 3 months.

    Could VooDoo still be alive.

    You must be too young to know much about the Pelicans then. It is a name that locals have long tied to minor league baseball here. It has a history. While Brass was a minor league hockey team, it does not have a long history as such.

    Wouldn't you want to capitalize on that history? You get to do that, yet the identity is still fresh and new

    The name Pelicans hasn't been used in New Orleans sports in some 35 years. The Brass died b/c of the Hornets (remember the Hornets forced the Brass out the NO Arena when the team moved from Charlotte and the Brass had nowhere else to go... Municipal Arena was too small)

    Pelicans would be both historic yet new... Brass could very well bring up some bad memories... esp. among the few hockey fans in NOLA (yes it's a small contingent but I know they're there)

    Not me. I think Pelicans should always be associated with baseball in this area. It just seems awkward to associate an NBA team with it and sort of steals that new identity we were looking for in a rebrand.

    So because the name has not been used in 35 years, doesn't mean that the history of the name dies.

    never said that it did... in fact I said it was both historic and new

    plenty of fans know about the baseball team... but how many people really KNOW the baseball team... if you see what I'm getting at.

    you're playing to the city's sports history... but yet it's still quite unique

    P-Can? As if our play on the court doesn't remind people of toilets enough?
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.
