    Its funny when people point out this thing eats other birds whole. If you sat and watched it happen, it's not exactly very gory. It even looks painful for the Pelican and kinda sad.

    Fear the mighty neck bag.

    Gory means a quick death. That it looks painful for it too and it goes through with it just makes that pelican sadistic.

    Sadistic if it did that by evil choice. The stupid thing has no choice.

    I will say I've seen Brown Pelicans up close in another country. The things don't budge no matter how close you get. They are beautiful birds up close.

    Now I'll go back to making fun of them.

    I will be cool with Pelicans especially with that red logo I've seen.

    I wonder if Twittter would have become so popular if they had chosen a name that probably sounded pretty silly to quite a few folks....

    I was saying it out of frustration. I'm tired of the constant hate the brand is getting, especially from a vocal majority. He is a New Orleanian. I apologize for being so "dumb."

    There, go back to your everyday lives.

    If the best they can do is call you "dumb' then you shouldn't care what they think anyway.

    From the ESPN Weekend Dime:

    1. I tried. I really did. I wanted so badly to say something smarter about the New Orleans Hornets' proposed adoption of the nickname Pelicans than former Orlando Magic beat man Jerry Brewer's glorious zinger. But Brewer's tweet this week was perfect: "Who the hell thought Pelicans was a good name for an NBA team? It's not even a good name for a pelican." I'm well aware that pelicans are the state bird of Louisiana, but c'mon. We can assume this whole New Orleans Pelicans concept stems from the fact that new Hornets owner Tom Benson owns the rights to the nickname Pelicans and thus might have something to gain financially from the switch. The nicest thing you can say about the whole plan is that the Hornets, according to league sources, have continued to beg the Utah Jazz to relinquish the nickname they kept when the New Orleans Jazz relocated to Salt Lake City in 1979.
    Interesting. I doubt it happens, but it gives those Pelicans rebrandists a reason to believe.

    Reading this makes me want New Orleans to get a MLB team, or at the very least, a Zephyrs rebrand. "Pelicans" & baseball just seems to fit so well.

    I like it for baseball. For professional basketball is sounds utterly ridiculous. Same for pro football. College basketball and football not so much. Don't know exactly why that is.

    I don't get why a name sounds better for one sport to another or from college sport to pro sport?

    Sometimes I wonder if New Orleans received our NFL franchise in today's times and said we were going to call them "the saints" what kind of reaction people would have. I feel pretty certain that it would be a pretty negative response for the most part from the majority of the country. Just saying, an intimidating mascot doesn't mean an intimidating team...

    I'm with lucky. I think pelicans is an excellent name for a team like the zephyrs but an absolute horrible name for an NBA team. I can't really explain why either

    My theory is that name seems to fit the younger atmosphere, so that covers jr. high/high school/college. Baseball you tend to think of it as more a family outing, daytime event with lots of kids.

    Basketball seems more adult oriented with 99% of all the games occuring at night, and pro football is full adult male testosterone, so it just doesn't register in my brain as a good name for those sports. Apparently many others agree.

    Thats my stab at it.

    It has nothing do with Pelicans having been presented a baseball team initially?

    Nothing to do with a pre-conception?

    "Saints" still has a quality of strength and discipline. The only bad NFL name: Texans. Talk about redundant.
    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.
