    Once again this isn't a two name race. I don't want Bounce either just if it was a one or the other situation.

    The problem I have is the history in a different way. For background for our younger set, right before the Zephyrs moved here, Benson was in the running to bring a AA baseball team here. He purchased the naming rights for Pelicans for the expected team. When the Z's moved in, he never let the rights laspe. This just reminds me of the pre-2005 Benson. The one too cheap to spend additional money on a well-thought out plan. The one who threatened to move the Saints to San Antonio. It's not a warm fuzzy.

    Say anything about Benson you want, but can you really call him "cheap" after he ponied up 330 million to buy the franchise?

    Ironically, I think it was the AA from Charlotte (Charlotte Knights) that he was negotiating to bring here.
