"Tonight, in Madison Square Garden, the mysterious swamp creature faces off against the underwear!"
I love it. Sign me up.
I think we need a another poll with these 5 names.
Anyone know how to start one?
The NBA has to sign off on it, they have final veto on the name. But I really don't think they can actively choose the name.
Too bad other fans would call us the kangaroos
http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...stern/1749585/"If it works for them, it works for me," Stern said. "I don't have any objections to anything that the Hornets want to do name-wise because I'm sure it'll be sensible. … I'm sure whatever it is, it'll be good. If (Pelicans) is what it is, that's fine. … I think everything sounds good. I think Lakers, have you seen any lakes in Los Angeles? There's the same amount of lakes in L.A. as there is jazz in Utah, or grizzlies in Memphis. I'm out of that business. Whatever works for a team works for me."
He babysat the team when they were the leagues' team. They're Benson's team now.
Haha I love the Rougarou. How about just Roux though? Our mascot could still be the rougarou and people would think of gumbo too so, good double meaning. The "-ux" is recognizable nationally. I've always been a fan of "Crescent City ____" too.
Anyone else here call it a "Loup Garou?" And I always thought of Loup Garou like a swamp-boogeyman rather than a straight-up werewolf. I'd never even heard of "Rougarou" until I saw that silly Cajun Justice episode a few months ago.
Support Louisiana businesses.
Why wasn't the "Alligators" ever thrown in as a possible name? I mean that sounds way better than anything I've seen so far. IMO
By the way those five names are ALL horrible and if it's the best Benson and his price marketing department could come with then we're doomed. Marketing is a BIG part of a successful franchise.
The book I read where I learned of it said loup-garou too.
