    Pretty sure the plural of rougarou is rougarou. Like yeti or sheep.

    What else do we have to go on?

    We dont live in the city so we can't get emotional attachment that way. Our love stems from the Hornets name, the team colours, the stadium and, of course, the players. A lot of which will be ripped away from us next season.

    I'm sorry Perth but we can more about the opinions of people who actually live here than those of y'all in australia.

    What's more arrogant? Telling the owner of a team he can't change the name to be closer to his home or saying to keep the name because people that live in France or what have you likes the brand the way it is?

    Being the urban fantasy lover I am, loup-garou is the name a powerful hulking creature. I can get down with that.

    Gabe Feldman a professor for sports law at Tulane posted it as well. I'd say this is pretty legit.

    What the? This... I just don't.... I.... I'm speechless....

    Bush league, horrendous, and embarrassing don't even begin to describe these. I never thought I'd say such a thing, but if these are the only options, then bring on the Pelicans. Good lord....

    There is no need for a re-brand.

    The Hornets name and colours have a lot of history behind them.

    Original Hornets fans have already had to go through a divisional change, a conference change, 2 city name changes and now a team name re-brand, a uniform re-brand and a stadium change.

    I defy you to find another team in world club sport that has had to put up with as much crap as that and still get repeat customers.

    No wonder the crowds are appalling day in, day out.

    Even if you could, convincing me won't change anything. The rebrand is happening.

    I'm sorry it seem to pain you so. But it's all but set in stone.

    By accepting the change without resistance you are condoning it.

    Therefore you are on the opposite side of the fence to me.

    I could even handle Brass or Voodoo, but the 5 patents applied for by the league are just appalling as team sport names.

    Understanding what the nickname is is the least of the problem. You'll get it when you see the logo. Unless it's some generic logo like the Knicks.

    I was lmao for about 5 minutes. I think Rougarou is pretty crazy in a good way

    "I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery

    Omfg rougourou is just about the greatest name ive ever heard. All thats left is convincing Chris webber that opposing teams wont point and laugh at us...

  24. #74
    fear the rougarou!!!!!!!!! hahahhha i love it..and the out of country guy on here complaining about the rebrand. Do you think the fans in another country are more important to this team than the locals that spend their money and time to support this team and attend games?? This is our team for atleast the next 20 years. So,the team will become a more local flavor to fit NEW ORLEANS not to please fans 1,000,000 miles away. Get over it and support the HORNETS when the name goes back to charlotte where it belongs.
