    Here's my take. Benson wants the team to appeal to all of Louisiana, so Brass and Krewe went out the window. Hey Benson, the rest of Louisiana sucks and gives $200 speeding tickets for going 5 mph over. Do Brass you fool!

    Now I'm in the angry phase.

    Now that the name is pretty much set, let's focus on getting people to the games.

    Seriously. That is the dumbest reason to not like the name. Think it's stupid in and of itself? Sure. Fine. But think that for a millisecond no one will want to sign here because they dislike the name that much? Someone should slap the their face off.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    Can't wait for 2 years from now when Pelican fans are like "man, remember when we got all worked up about Pelicans and claimed to never buy any merch? Look at us now, we got over it because we are reasonable people."

    "Carmello Anthony, you are now the face of the franchise named after underpants."
    "Kobe Bryant, you are now a proud member of a team best represented by a moderately sized body of water."
    "Deron Williams, welcome to the Nets! That thing that, you know, you throw the ball through. Why didn't we call ourselves the Hoops? That's just silly."
    "Dwyane Wade, we hope that your shot will be just like our team name."

    "Anthony Davis, it is time for you to gobble up the rest of the league like our namesake does to everything it sees."

    Yup either they don't care or they're taking a risk hoping it will be accepted everywhere outside of the gulf coast....but thats just my way of thinking I'm thinking of how the name and logo will effect not only the region exposure but globally because I want the team to be a destination for more than local sponsors and investors. Kinda like the Saints were able to sell the naming rights to the Superdome to Mercedes Benz instead of Louisiana Seafood Company.

    I'll remember the day I checked twitter and got really really excited before hopping on hornetsreport to laugh at all the hate.

    Indeed. I'm using that a lot.

    He is not wanting to leave the Bucks because of the team name. That is just a ridiculous argument.

    That's because they suck. It has nothing to do with their name. I hope you don't really believe that's the reason he wants out...

    Yes, that's because of the name of the team.

    Kibner, penuckle. Awesome.

    To all the complainers: get it out now. This conversation is about to end. I'd love to see what remains from some after their little complaint checklist is in tatters.

    Not people who don't like the name; the cadre of semi-pro complainers. Your time has come.

    I feel you. I feel bad for all of the people out of the country that loves the team and name just as much as us locals. I think it's a selfish name change but I don't really have an issue with the actual name
