Wow, I would never have expected such an impressive and intelligent rebuttal from you, Chad.

There's nothing left to discuss. You're "its not cool enough" "It's not local enough" and "its not intimidating enough" have all been rebutted more than kim kardashian.

But you were ok with wearing stuff with Hornets on it?


Creole blue looks sharp for one. Otherwise, I think that Pelicans is a terrible name that welcomes mockery. The thing that bothered me most about the name Hornets was the "Bees" crap. Other than that, it's not a bad name. Pelicans, in my opinion, is just a lame name. I don't know what else you want me to tell you.

And with all that said, the name still sucks and a large portion of Hornets fans and general sports fans think it sucks. Maybe you can write an essay and convince everyone that their opinions are wrong. Try to keep the racism to a minimum, though. It will turn off most people.

So then the 50% that likes it is also large.


You aren't going to please everyone.

I was responding directly to a person who pointed out that it was basically 50/50 here. Just like you to chime in with stupid.

And how many of those 50% are the "dealing with it" crowd?

Also, that was specifically vs. "Rougarous." How many of those people voted Pelicans as a "not Rougarous" vote?

Voodoo. Granted this is just the opinion voiced on Hornets message boards and not the fan base in general, but Voodoo is the only name that had a significant number of supporters and a minimal number of detractors.
