Dey all ax for Rou...
AD throws one down the crowd cheers "ROUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!! "
New Orleans Pelicans-Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Braves-Anaheim Ducks
Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
If you die, tell them that you played my game
I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.
I really like the Rougarou - I like how it's unique, cajun/voodoo, and I like how it can be shortened to "Rou" or (even better) to "Roux" like the seasoning used in Gumbo. "Roux" would be a great name for a mascot.

I love that little jewish chick in your sig pic. MMM those eyes.
Yeah that kid is so lucky the eagle dropped him when it did. If it hangs on and ascends for an extra 5 seconds that toddler might have been killed in the fall
Yo!! I'm down for the New Orleans Golden Eagles after that video. And we dare ANYONE outside of NOLA to make fun that name. We'll send a Golden Eagle to snatch your babies out of their cribs at night!!! LMAO!!!
I gotta watch it again.......
I work in St. Louis and one of my co-workers was just telling me about reading the article... and he was like Rougarou is by far my favorite (which surprised me)... so maybe acceptance wouldn't be that bad outside of LA

But back on topic....I guess its just me....and people are probably going give me crap about this statement....but I find this list of names embarrasing and in a way....kind of insulting. Like who is coming up with some of this stuff. Are these professional marketing people? Its like the people throwing out these names associate this entire state and its population with reality shows like Swamp People....
Pelicans is the only thing I would accept on that list....and I don't even like that name. But at least is not a backwoods stereotype. I'll leave it a that.
They all are horrible....you could open up a dictionary, flip through the pages, and plop your finger down and get something better than that.
1. Oh so you're from New Orleans (like NOLA is the ONLY place in Louisiana)
2. Did your family make it out after Katrina...
I kid you not....every. single. time.
Its frustrating sometimes...because I'm proud of where I'm from but I also am not proud of the sterotypes that some in Louisiana seem so eager to exploit when there is so much more culture in the state that people don't know about. Thats why the name to me needs to not only resonate with the state but be something that doesn't make us look like we're perpetuating those negative backwoods stereotypes that everyone outside of our state perpetuates to the rest of the world. Thats why I feel more research and a more professional tone needs to be taken when trying to do this rebrand.
But thats just me though....
Who the hell is recommending these name changes to Tom Benson? They need to be fired for recommending such sucky names.
Rougarou ain't sucky. I'm pretending that the one that starts with an M doesn't exist.
These were filed on 12/5.
Spears' story came out 12/4.
None of this is a reaction, and he said at the time that Pelicans was the name, something we'd heard before.
This is just more evidence that it's pelicans.
