    Of those, I'd say Rougarou. I would prefer having a werewolf as a mascot than someone walking around in a pelican outfit.

    The only thing about Rougarou is hearing a lot of people try to pronounce it.

    I understand people think it's funny, but c'mon.
    No one is going to laugh if the team turns into a title contender. L.A. Lakers and Utah Jazz makes no sense, but no one cares when they're winning. Bengals and Lions seem like good mascots, until you realize it's Detroit and Cincinnati.

    Vasquez gives up 114 points per 100 possessions.

    Eric Bledsoe gives up 98...gotta brainwash their damn GM.

    i was born and raised in new orleans and the first time i ever heard the word "rougarou" was yesterday. i thought tom's whole idea was to pick something that represents & symbolizes the city.

    that's my last comment, i'll let the pro-rougarous continue their crusade. but in all honesty, i'd prefer every single other name suggested.

    I'm still behind Pelicans. Rougarou is Louisianians (of which I was born and raised mind you) trying way too hard to be unique and different intentionally... these same people will ***** and complain about how the national media, pundits, and talking heads are hating on the name.

    I am from abroad and I'd rather Rougarou than Pelicans. But, first I had to google it to know what it was.

    Rougarou sounds like something Scooby Doo would say lol Maybe a Scooby Doo-esque mascot/logo?....."Rougarougaroooooo!"

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

    people defend Pelicans because its louisiana and who cares what anyone else thinks, well Rougarou is so louisiana that not even people from here know what the hell it is

    This.

    I'm torn between the Pelicans and the Hornets. I don't like Rougarou, but I hate Bullsharks and Mosquitos, and I REALLY hate Swamp Dogs.

    My top choice is still "Krewe of New Orleans."
